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.

    Wow! That’s absolutely incredible! Good for her!

  • Brent Bollmeier

    I’ve listened to this… like…. 7 times already. Wow.

  • IAM_THE_KGB

    She has the notes down brilliantly, but there’s no feeling, no emotion, just the notes.

    • MotorCity87

      Christ, she’s 15! She hasn’t lived long enough on this earth to have experienced all the range of emotions and feelings we have gone through as an adult. Give her time!

  • Brian Leichty

    David Gilmour would be proud.

  • ronhavelock

    sorry very good but just not quite there or “nailed ” as was said

    • Bladerunner64

      And of course, you can do it better…right? She nailed big time!

      • Kevin Doyle

        like to hear more from this tallanted lady
        amazing i have listened to davids virson more than i can remember you nailed it

  • whitneymr

    For the folks dissing her for being too stiff remember Gilmour didn’t come up with this riff until he was 33 years old. Give her an other 18 years and see what she has progressed to.

  • Dave Rotchell

    Brilliant!! Could have done with it longer though!!!

  • Edward Norton

    Excellent

  • Zelphium

    Now improv over top

  • Bladerunner64

    Bet she could do a great solo to “Another Brick in the Wall” as well. Would like to see that.

  • http://www.suckmydick.com Borat Sagdiyev

    Not quite my tempo. JK! :)

  • Mark labourdette

    Just amazing- I would pay good money to see her play- does she ever sit in with these bands? I live by James Hatfeild I bet I could get her a invite? Send me a e-mail if interested

  • http://Disqus.com/ Brett Stallmann

    AWESOME!!

  • Richard Hartley

    Impressive, but I wouldn’t say she nailed it. She missed a couple of notes.
