If one of your New Year's resolution is to learn more songs on guitar and/or become a better musician here are links to a really great 4 part video tutorial on the David Gilmour parts for "Comfortably Numb" created by Carl Brown.
The first video shows Mr. Brown playing through the whole song in real time while the other 4 go through the rhythm and lead guitar parts. The 2 camera approach (see screenshot at bottom) works very well with most of the screen showing his left hand on the neck with a small window in the upper left corner showing his right hand picking.
Watch "Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb Close-Up Performance by Carl Brown" on YouTube
Watch "Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb Guitar Lesson Pt.1 - All Rhythm Guitar Parts" on YouTube
Watch "Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb Guitar Lesson Pt.2 - Main Solo" on YouTube
Watch "Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb Guitar Lesson Pt.3 - Outro Solo (First Half)" on YouTube
Watch "Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb Guitar Lesson Pt.4 - Outro Solo (Second Half)" on YouTube
If you find his free videos to be helpful he has two paid levels for $20 or $40 per month with the first month half of that and discounts for prepaid multi-month plans which do not auto-renew.
The $20/mo level includes all of the premium videos while the $40/mo level allows you to send Mr. Brown videos of your own playing for him to critique and make suggestions on how to improve, much like having your own personal teacher.
I may decide to pay $10 for the first month once I get my computer set up for downloading YouTube videos and then grab everything that looks interesting to me.
