David Gilmour's "Comfortably Numb" solo, Pulse version is my ultimate favorite


This guitar solo is played with so much heart and soul. It's unbelievable...



Great if You agree

Great if You do not agree


But it would be greater if You will tell...

what's Yours ?

That is definitely a good one. I've been meaning to learn it forever but never have. I hear the recorded solo comes from four different tracks pieced together. That's one of those full blast don't answer the phone tell its over solo's. He, he.

Gilmour's solo on "On the Turning Away" on A Momentary Lapse of Reason is comparable to Comfortably Numb.

And also, The Division Bell's "Marooned" has amazing guitar work by Gilmour, in my opinion, one of the two noteworthy tracks on that album.

That's definately one of the greatest solos and can reduce one to tears with the melodies.
Currently my struggle is with the short and seemingly simple Brian May "We will Rock You" solo. I got two tabs off the net and apart from some similarities they are different. But even when slowed down, the album solo is so distorted that it difficult to tell what's going on in parts, and it's easy to play something similar, but that's not the same. Even so, for effect its the greatest and just striking that Brian may pose with that sound coming from the amp - lovely!

Maybe not the best guitar solo ever but it is one of my favourites.

Prince's solo at George Harrison's induction into the Rock and Roll HOF. The solo itself starts at 3:30

That's a good one. Just how you can tell its over solo's, if you don't answer the phone ?

Brian May is amazing. The one you mention a true "classic". Another great solo you will find in "You Don't Fool Me"

Thanks for share that gem. Awesome ! And a surprise to find anything of Prince at UT. Just the thought of Purple Rain's never on UT makes me cry

I'm going to have to say it's "Machine Gun" by Jimi Hendrix with Band Of Gypsys. Not only is the solo several minutes long but probably the most expressive in history. And the extended ONE NOTE right in the middle of it has more power and meaning than any other guitar note ever played.

I'm no guitar geek but I do love the solo in Mastodons 'Divinations'. Beast riff underneath it and it's just generally pretty fricking amazing. (to me anyway but what would I know I'm a drummer :p)

The cheesy guitar lighting in the video is good for a laugh too haha

I have no idea where to find the youtube video number so I'll just give a link if anyones interested

Divinations Youtube

It's impossible to find "the best" solo, but some are worthy of notice and should be mentioned.



Led Zeppelin - Since I've Been Loving You - (1970)


Solo by Jimmy Page: 3:40 -> 4:54



Tear Gas - Love Story - (1971)


Solo by Zal Cleminson: 3:26 -> 5:03

Amazing performance ! He really did "let it all out". Also thanks for all other posts. The Skynard's "Free Bird" was "new" to me as well as the "Love Story" from Tear Gas...
Often we (i do) listen the same tracks over and over, so looking outside the box, is very refreshing. Thanks !
