Top Ten Songs with the Best David Gilmour Guitar Solos
The Top Ten
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
In Gilmour's world, every journey starts with a single note...
David Gilmour is a true legend.
Time is definitely 2, Comfortably Numb is the best guitar solo ever, and it always will be.
Comfortably numb from pulse or live in gdansk? Take your pick!
Finally... My vote made this jump to the 2nd spot from being the 3rd... Bravo!
Comfortably Numb is Best, but Time is the 2nd Best...
It is the first guitar solo that I learn. Simple, not fast, but full of emotion n power
Dogs! It's long and has time to build and its incredible. Apparently Roger accidentally deleted the recording with the best solo on it, so we aren't even listening to his best!
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.
Crazy bends all the way!
Very underrated solo, it fits perfectly in with the jazzy tone of the song
Especially in the Live at Pompeii version.
Best Floyd song... top 10 jam sessions of all time between minute 7-10... early Floyd beginning to venture into electrónica
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.
The outro is the best guitar solo in the history. 7th?! Are you kidding?
My top 4 are Comfortably Numb, Time, Echoes, and High Hopes
This is his best. Sorry comfortably numb fans.
Wonderful emotion, especially in the live versions.
This should be 1
Simply the best solo from the most soulful, emotional guitarist to ever walk this earth. This is an amazing piece of work that fills your heart and soul with joy. Such a shame that very few people, other than "true" Floyd fans, are even aware of this songs existence.
Live version of this song is unbelievable
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
One of the best most soulful guitar solos
I'm shocked at how far down this is
No words can describe this song honestly
Yes very underrated solo
When David Gilmour hits the first note of the final solo of the song, everything just seems to melt down along with it. It is so beautiful that every time I wanna spread my hands, close my eyes, raise my head and bathe in the music.
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)
Classic 2 solos don't forget that song on the division bell album and he plays it every where
