Breathe (Main)

Animated Breathe (Main) tab by Pink Floyd on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is a great song from the Dark Side of the Moon album. Here we look at the main rhythm guitar.

Essentially the song uses 2 main chords throughout:

Em add9 and A major (adding / removing the D note at the end of the sequence)

Notice that the A major chord is played using the 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers rather than the usual 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This makes playing some of the little fills easier. There are occasional fills played in the song. Here they are in order:

Fill 1 - Fill 2 - Fill 3

There is a lovely chord progression later in the song which is:

C maj7 - Bm / Bm7 - F maj7 - G major - D7 #9 - Ab7

This progression occurs twice in the song.
