Official Guitar Tab for Pink Floyd's The Endless River

This past November, Pink Floyd released The Endless River—their first album in 20 years, and one that serves as a bittersweet requiem for one of the most important art-rock bands of all time. The nearly completely instrumental album—only one song, "Louder Than Words," contains lyrics—comprises 18 tracks, based on leftover and unreleased music from the 1993 Division Bell sessions, which feature keyboardist Rick Wright, who died of cancer in 2008.
"We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album," guitarist David Gilmour said in a statement. "Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire."
Drummer Nick Mason characterized the album as a tribute to Wright.
"I think this record is a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does and how his playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound," said Mason. "Listening back to the sessions, it really brought home to me what a special player he was."
