For a great song, it seems pretty low on the list
I think this is Gilmour's second Magnum Opus after, or maybe along with, Comfortably Numb, and for that matter, Sheep. Fat Old Sun soars and this solo is as intricate, emotive, and crisp as any Commander Gilmour ever did after 1970, the year Atom Heart Mother came out.
Did everyone just forget them or something?
I didn't know this son even had a solo
Just cause it was made for a movie doesn't mean ITS not great!
It's sad that no one here appreciates the skill required for classical guitar.
Awesome song, 1 of my faves
Just rocking. In the most classic way possible. - higgsboson2142
I know a lot of this solo is pentatonics played really fast, but hell, isn't that what most of metal soloing is? Dave's final solo is the best pentatonic wanking I've heard and the speed is absolutely mind-blowing.
Alive is a great solo but Wishlist is one of the best of all times!
I love this guitar solo, I wish it were higher
Most complete guitar song ever!
I am surprised that this piece of guitar art was not on the list until now. The solo was co-written by Gabriel, Banks and master guitarist Steve Hackett and is played at various points througout the song but the best moment by far is when Steve Hackett starts building the solo.
Perhaps Progressive Rock has no place in this list? I tend to disagree. Feel free to YouTube for this song, it is magnificent. Just play it very very loud...
