Pink Floyd.

How would you incorporate the violin when covering this song with a guitar, violin/mandolin, and bass? Original tempo, but maybe cut time.

I have some ideas, but I want to hear yours first; they are probably better.

Ahhh man. I don't have a version recorded but, one band I play with we do a Bluegrass Version of this that's so much fun to play.
We do the intro the same and then speed up to a pretty fast bluegrass beat.
For the breaks we just ride G and Em which is super fun to improv. This doesn't help in your situation but ya got me moving this morning talking about it!

Okay, I'd just play the singing part. That's a whole lot a guitar song. I don't know how I do it but I do have examples upon request. Otherwise, find a piano fake book. Some piano player somewhere has Muzac'd (elevator music) most all tunes. That's why I curtailed my pop tunes on fiddle series. It's too close to elevator music. Audiences connect to vocals and voice, more than instrumentals. (Just my opinion, observation)

Thanks y'all...I like the start slow speed up treatment. I think I can get someone else to sing it so I can get off mandolin, then I can do some filler and stuff on fiddle. I'm thinking I'll try to fit "Blackberry Blossom" into a break somehow.

We're also trying "Layla," (Eric Clapton) but it's already fast. And Charlie Daniels showed how to play fiddle on that, so I'll probably just cover his cover.

Scott,

I'd really like to hear your projects once you get the together. Hope you can share a link in the future!

There is a version Pink Floyd did with Stephan Grappelli - https://youtu.be/p98UZxdlKRM

There are other videos of covers with violin trying to march the David Gilmour guitar part.

There are lots of of other instrumental covers where violin does vocal line.

There are more BG covers, you might look at this version https://youtu.be/sqk_rJSbrTM keeps the original feel.
or if wanting to play it up tempo... this https://youtu.be/teIWL2_5dCI or  https://youtu.be/yJmKQ1ppZRw  or whatever this is https://youtu.be/UAJSStXY5aA

Myself, the iconic guitar part, groove that tempo, is one of the best parts; what make it immediately noticed. Why I wanted to learn it as teenager. Can work well on banjo though.

Steve,

Haven't got the fiddle in it yet, cause we're shorthanded; and the video is PBR-induced, but you get the idea.

Having fun with the board and FX--incognito guitarist with a growl-pedal at the end.

Ozark hillbillies just trying to figure out electricity, you know

If we can find another picker or two, I can get back on fiddle and slop around

Wow! What a Sunday night surprise! It just goes to show, doesn't matter the recording device or any of that technical junk, when it's good, it's goooooood!
