Top Ten David Gilmour Guitar Solos


The Top Ten

1 Comfortably 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

1. Comfortably Numb
2. Time
3. Money
4. Shine On You Crazy Diamond
5. Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2
6. Have a Cigar
7. Hey You
8. Echoes
9. Dogs
10. Pigs (Three Different Ones) - Derrick_Fox

2 Time (The Dark Side Of The Moon)

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

Comfortably Numb is Best, but Time is the 2nd Best... - Nirmal1991USA

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

3 Money (The Dark Side Of The Moon)

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

4 Echoes (Meddle)

Best Floyd song... top 10 jam sessions of all time between minute 7-10... early Floyd beginning to venture into electrónica

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

10 Dogs (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.

The Contenders

11 High Hopes (The Division Bell)

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

So tasteful, something worth listening to.
