Our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL" by the legendary guitarist Mr. DAVID GILMOUR. "Another Brick in the Wall" is the title of three songs set to variations of the same basic theme, on Pink Floyd's 1979 rock opera, The Wall, subtitled Part 1 (working title "Reminiscing"), Part 2 (working title "Education"), and Part 3 (working title "Drugs"). Part 2 is a protest song against rigid schooling in general and boarding schools in the UK in particular. It was also released as a single and provided the band's only number-one hit in the world. David Gilmour has done one of the most iconic guitar solos of all time. On the original recording, he played a Les Paul Gold Top (with P-90 pickups) direct into the mixing desk and then gated and compressed the signal, before running it back out again and into a Mesa Boogie Mark I Amplifier. David Gilmour’s guitar solo, without any of his trademark tremolo or distortion, is a masterpiece of rhythmic precision, a fluid exposition of surefooted interlinked riffing, virtually a masterclass in how to play a solo - and it was the first take. David Gilmour’s slick outro solo, Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2) is one of Pink Floyd’s best-loved songs. And, although Gilmour’s style and tone are silky smooth. This solo, even if hyper heard over the years, still remains one of my favorite and it was very hard to try to replicate the perfection that Gilmour put in this execution!! Gilmour uses some wide bends and creative phrasing to create a memorable solo. The song is in the key of D minor and the licks from the solo come from the D pentatonic minor scale. He is simply one of the best guitar soloists in the world, and his influence lives on today.
