I'm not saying it wasn't good. I mean, I really enjoyed the song. But best PF track ever? World's most amazing solo? Hell no.

Comfortably Numb entered my top three Floyd songs on first listen. That was an epic track.

22 is pretty good. Really dig the guitar.

Because solos aren't about how many notes you can pluck within 8 measures, I would put it among the top 3-5 solos in rock, actually.

My favorite guitar solo ever is still the live Love Is Blindness solo from ZooTV: Sydney.

Little known fact: I'm generally not that into wanky solos with too many notes.

My favourite guitar solo is probably the cliché Stairway to Heaven.

I honestly don't think I have a favourite guitar solo. Plenty of favourites, but I wouldn't identify any as a particular favourite above all others.

It feels kind of ridiculous to compare, say, 11 O'clock Tick Tock to Porcupine Tree's Arriving Somewhere But Not Here anyway.

My favourite guitar moments tend to not be solos in the first place ...

Oh, that sarcastic remark wasn't directed at you; it was just my general hatred for that particular attitude that prompted me to write it.

My 5 favorite solos in rock:

1. Funkadelic - Maggot Brain (Eddie Hazel)
2. Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb (David Gilmour)
3. Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven (Jimmy Page)
4. Steely Dan - Kid Charlemagne (Larry Carlton)
5. David Bowie - Moonage Daydream (Mick Ronson)

The live version of Moonage Daydream from the Ziggy Motion Picture is one of the best performances of any song ever.

I really like the live guitar solo from Oasis' Familiar to Millions live album.

I feel like U2 solos shouldn't rank that highly for me, because come on, The Edge isn't the greatest guitarist ever, but 11 O'clock Tick Tock, New Year's Day, One Tree Hill, God Part II, The Fly, Love Is Blindness - fuck yes.

The Edge is criminally underrated outside of U2 fans, though.

Well, if you're basing things off of technical playing and sheer ability, I can't blame them. If you're basing things off painting a picture, though, I can.
