Best Pink Floyd Guitar Solosrussian
The Top TenXW
I agree, video is also great when he starts to rage and solo is like perfect for this, I love it.
The best solo out there absolutely brilliant live on pulse /albert hall the sound and timing spot on, there will never be anything better!
definitely the best not only for pink floyd... the best gutar solos of all time #1 - ravikanth
The list is kind of stupid, there should be 100% at C Numb, reallyV17 Comments
In my opinion, this one is not only the best of floyd, but it's the second best solo, right behind Han Solo
The solo is just epic, it's very simple, but only Gilmour would make something simple with such a good sounding. I always dreaming to hear this solo live made by Gilmour.
This guitar solo seems to tell a story in the form of musical notes. Simply brilliant.
Hard to choose the best, but I have to go with this one!V5 Comments
For me, much better than the Comfortably Numb one.
Less technical than Comfortably Numb, no doubt, but a lot more melodic. That uplifting feeling of surfing forever and ever, only that lap steel solo can give it to you.
Easily David's best solo, he's pouring his heart out for all of us in this song
Unbelievable. Perfectly melodic yet powerful. It's amazing to see how easily he can switch to a lap steel guitarV6 Comments
Amazing number, just incredible how they got this together, especially when the band were not getting on well. Sometimes the best thing grow out of tensions within a band.
It was between this and Time. Although Time is probably the best single guitar solo from Pink Floyd, this song has multiple of the best, especially if you count all of the parts. The solos in the song are maniacally good. - lavillaof2112
Absolute brilliance. In short truly one of the best Pink Floyd songs and absolutely the best Pink Floyd solo without a doubt.
Should be number 1... Specifically part 6... Very very unique...V4 Comments
When you hear the dogs barking in the background, and slowly you hear the entire mood of the song slowly change. Man I love the solo for Time Comfortably numb, and Pigs three different ones, but this is the one that does it for me. 17 minutes long, and every note is delicately placed, for just the right mood the song was meant to establish. This solo is a masterpiece, and so is the song it belongs to.
I have to say that this is a THE best song ever. The multiple solos link together perfectly and change emphasise the mood in such a way that it just puts me on another world. To be honest, I'm not really sure which guitar solo it is meant to be about, but this one song contains at least 4 or 5 top quality solos.
The combination of the genius and technique of gilmours playing accompanied by a stellar backing by the rest of the band create such an aesthetic feeling that is unparalleled by any of their other songs
Totally timeless. Definitely the best Pink Floyd song. Gilmour's guitars and Wright's organ/piano...V5 Comments
Best guitar solo ever, And the best one was live in Venice 1994.V1 Comment
In little over 2 minutes, Gilmour manages to make one of the most vibrant and outstanding guitar solo's of all time. Such a range of notes and sounds, all weaved together into a solo that gets me every time. Absolute genius.
Blues and funky. Money solo is brilliant and sometimes underrated
Everyone says Time and Comfortably Numb, but this one is done so much better.
Doesn't this one have a sax solo instead of a guitar solo? - FondaSuV2 Comments
Echoes in 8th?!?! Didn't think TheTopTens would come to this. - PositronWildhawk
If I had to choose between Echoes and Comfortably Numb, I'd choose Echoes any day.
Not much to say - Echoes just plain kicks ass
Should be way higher...V1 Comment
This sits easily at the top of the list. The solos are ambient, spacey, atmospheric and melodious. It's hard to imagine that a human actually made this song.
13?! You gotta be kidding me.. it should be after comfortably numb!
Probably not fit for the top 10, but definitely a wonderful series of solos.
Best guitar solo ever! It has everything, and the background music makes it even better- a reference to Another Brick In The Wall.
Just completely awesome, along with the song
This is by far the best solo! Makes me travel to other places
The solo sounds like Another Brick In The Wall. - CasinLetsGoBowlingV3 Comments
Maybe not Pink Floyd's greatest solo ever, but it definitely is deserving of recognition
Gives me chills it's so beautiful.V1 Comment
At the very end of Pigs, David Gilmour holds onto ONE note. ONE simple note, and plays the living crap out of it. It is honestly my favorite moment in any Pink Floyd song... About 9 n a half minutes into Pigs. There goes my vote!
Honestly, this is my favorite, probably because radio hasn't worn it out. This solo evokes some really intense emotions in me. Can't really tell you why, but I do have this vision of Elizabeth banks of the back of my bike cruising the pacific coast at sunset ;=)
This, along with Comfortably Numb, Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Echoes, Hey you, High Hopes, Dogs, Time, Another Brick, and Money should be the top ten list of guitar solos OF ALL TIME... This ties with Comfortably Numb for 1st place on that list... 10th? Kinda sad...
This solo shows such intense emotion it hits you like a train. Every time I listen to this song I go back and listen to the solo a couple more times. Best solo of all time if you ask meV3 Comments
This absolutely takes off and soars. I remember hearing it and thinking if I go to heaven I want this to be the soundtrack. Simply divine.
I would absolutely put Comfortably Numb firs, On the Turning Away a very close second and High Hopes a solid third place.
Sounds extremely morose... But fits the song very well...
From 03:20 and out, you really don't want this to end!V4 Comments
The solo speaks more than the lyrics itself, which is saying a lV3 Comments
The guitar solo is so powerful! Even though its just 30 seconds..!
Mother should be in the top 5! It's a perfect guitar soloV1 Comment
Hey man..This song can turn your your mind inside out and upside down...
Very, very underrated song. This is some of the best guitar work I've heard. - matty925
Apparently this is really underrated! I am surprised to see it so low on the list!
Indeed very very underrated.V1 Comment
Highly underrated... But kicks major ass...
Short but oh so sweet..
It's got 3 beautiful solos, slide solo at the beginning, funky solo in the middle, and reprise of the slide solo in the end
This doesn't have a guitar solo it is an orchestral piece. - SammySpore
Not all of it, it is divided into several parts and one of those parts has a small rock out featuring a cool guitar solo. - deltabluesV1 Comment
This track is the musical definition of the word "happiness". And slowly fading solo plays a huge part in that.
