Best David Gilmour Guitar Solos?

Post by Ashes andDiamonds07 »

In your opinion, what are some of David Gilmour's best guitar solos?

I would have to choose (in chronological order):
Childhoods End, Time, Money, Any Colour You Like, Shine On Your Crazy Diamond (all the solos in it), Have A Cigar, Dogs (again, all the solos), No Way Out Of Here, Raise My Rent, Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 1, ANother Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2, Mother, Young Lust, Hey You, Comfortably Numb of course (both solos), The Fletcher Memorial Home, The Final Cut, Not Now John, Learning To Fly, Cluster One, Marooned, Great Day For Freedom, Coming Back To Life, Keep Talking, High Hopes, Louder Than Words and Hey, Hey, Rise Up.
Okay, that's a lot.

What about you guys?

You seemed to have picked a lot of choices I would have picked.
However, as un-Floyd as "It Would Be So Nice" is. I do like the guitar solo on the fade out.

It is a great solo, and a great song

Pigs is Gilmour's best guitar solo in the studio. Followed by The Final Cut and Comfortably Numb.

Obvious "Comfortably Numb" second solo.
The acoustic fade-to electric on "In the End".
"High Hopes".
Most of On an Island, but specifically "On an Island" (first solo) and "The Blue".
"In Any Tongue".
So many more, but these are the absolute top stand outs for me.

- No Way
- The Final Cut
- Marooned
- Coming Back to Life
