factoryconnection: Great job, great feel, great song.

That's the surprise for me.  Usually the younger musicians can manage the technicality but that solo (and Gilmore's playing in general) is all about feel.  And she's got it.

tonguedepressor: Yeah but we all can agree that Comfortably Numb does contain the best guitar solo ever right?

It contains two of the best guitar solos ever.

Here's Juliet Valduriez's version.

She's got a handful of other videos in a variety of styles (compare this to Gimme Shelter, for example). She has a way of making me feel bad about never starting with six strings.

This girl is definitely a prodigy but there's something missing from her. Paul Gilbert has joked you can't play a solo with a straight face, you gotta have an O face to go with it. She plays the most amazing solos with the deadest, most expressionless face I've ever seen. It's like the girl ain't feeling it.

Yes, enjoyable. However, I like this young girl's version better.

She gets points since this looks like she just set up the camera, started the backing track and played. The link seems to be an ad for the guys guitar lessons. So looks a more pro job.

her timing was a bit off on a few spots, but, yeah, she can play, that's for sure.

not a difficult solo, but she played it well - what she played of it.
