Cryptic lyrics of the Rock classic. The band says they are about being in life in the moment. You be the judge (see below). Mostly G major pentatonic scale. Don’t get too worried about the exact rhythm of the melody in the chart. I did try to write it to mirror Pink Floyd’s original vocal version, but it is definitely open to interpretation.
Improv: Listen to my demo for ideas on how you can handle improvising over the intro. I used almost exclusively G major pentatonic and E minor pentatonic/blues, which, as you may know are really the same scale. The only harmonic change to listen for is the A chords which will need C#’s to sound like you are “in” with the chord changes. In my demo you should definitely hear me “aiming” for some C#’s on those chords.
