15-Year-Old Guitarist Totally Nails The Complicated Solo From Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb'

If you're a Pink Floyd fan (and who isn't) then you'll be familiar (very familiar) with the epic and complicated guitar solos from one of their most beloved tracks 'Comfortably Numb'.

Be honest. You've probably played air guitar along to them on numerous occasions.

15-year-old French guitarist Tina S goes one better than your air guitar attempts, she plays the solo—the one from the end of the track— on her Vigier Excalibur Custom guitar.

And if you close your eyes it could almost be David Gilmour. Almost.

It's an impressive performance however you look at it, and that fact that she's only 15 should give prog rockers—both young, old, and ancient—some hope that their favorite music will live on in future generations.

The song first appeared on the 1979 double album The Wall. It was also released as a single in 1980 with "Hey You" as the B-side.

It is one of only three songs on the album for which writing credits are shared between bassist Roger Waters and guitarist David Gilmour. The chorus melody was written by Gilmour while Waters contributed the lyrics and the music for the verses.

Below is the original track by Floyd so you can see how close Tina S's performance comes.
