Top Ten David Gilmour Guitar Solos


The Top TenXW

1Comfortably Numb (The Wall)

Absolutely beautiful inspiring solo! - fireinside96

The Undisputed Winner of the List... WHAT A SOLO!

As soon as the last verse ends and the first few notes of the solo start, I surrender myself to the emotional journey that this solo takes you on. It leaves you wanting to listen to it over and over again. Every note has its own place. Beautifully crafted

Definitely deserves the top spot. - FreakOnALeash

2Time (The Dark Side Of The Moon)

Finally... My vote made this jump to the 2nd spot from being the 3rd... Bravo! - Nirmal1991USA

It is the first guitar solo that I learn. Simple, not fast, but full of emotion n power

3Money (The Dark Side Of The Moon)

Very underrated solo, it fits perfectly in with the jazzy tone of the song

4Echoes (Meddle)
5Young Lust (The Wall)
6Another Brick In the Wall Pt. 2 (The Wall)
7Hey You (The Wall)
8Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Wish You Were Here)
9Dogs (Animals)

My favorite part is between the first and second verse. #1 in my book for David, and in my overall Top 10 of all time.

10Mother (The Wall)

The version on the album is good in and of itself. But they had to shorten it down to make room for more songs (they did that with a lot of songs on the album). If you look up the full version (Live 1980) on youtube you can see how brilliant the solo is

The Contenders

11High Hopes (The Division Bell)

The outro is the best guitar solo in the history. 7th?! Are you kidding?

So tasteful, something worth listening to.
