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

3. Money
4. Shine On You Crazy Diamond
5. Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2
6. Have a Cigar
7. Hey You

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 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.

4 Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Wish You Were Here)
5 Money (The Dark Side Of The Moon)

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

6 Echoes (Meddle)

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

7 Pigs (Three Different Ones) (Animals)
8 Young Lust (The Wall)
9 High Hopes (The Division Bell)

Comfortably Numb is the best solo, but this follows in extremely close. I had to vote for this one though because it being at #12 is unacceptable. - wubbalubbadubdub

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

Best of lab steel

7th?. This solo never fails to give goosebumps and make me cry.

10 Hey You (The Wall)

The Newcomers

? On the Turning Away (A Momentary Lapse of Reason)

Yes very underrated solo - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Another Brick In the Wall Pt. 2 (The Wall)
12 Murder
13 Fat Old Sun

Live version of this song is unbelievable

14 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

15 The Thin Ice (The Wall)
16 Have A Cigar (Wish You Were Here)
17 Marooned (The Division Bell)

No words can describe this song honestly

18 Coming Back to Life (The Division Bell)
19 Raise My Rent (David Gilmour)
20 Louder Than Words

This really is one of his best solos. its great way for the floyd to go out.
This needs to be in the top ten. (still not better than comfortably numb) - Messej
