    Gilmour, because I like the Floyd better than Queen.

    Cheers,

      Gilmour.  Not just because I like Pink Floyd better than Queen, although I do, but he's just one of my favorite guitar players of all time.  His bending, his vibrato, his writing, his phrasing, his versatility, his tone.  Brian May is great, too, but David Gilmour is just a cut above almost everyone.

          David Gilmour.

          His solo stuff and Pink Floyd own Queen. No offense to Queen fans, but Gilmour defined experimental rock.

            I picked these two guys because I thought that they would be VERY evenly matched in a poll like this, and I am very curious to see what HCEG thinks about them and also why.

                  David Gilmour for me. Probably tainted by the fact I have never been much of a Queen fan.

                  Who is your choice?


                  After thinking about it for a moment, Gilmour has some of my alltime favorite solos ever written, even more so than the craploads of cool stuuf that I like from May.

                  And I could even just use only three or four Gilmour solos to make that determination.

                  Solos from songs like Time, and Comfortably numb, are some of the greatest masterpieses ever played on a guitar.

                  May has a TON of awesome signature solos, riffs, tones, etc, but the soulful, mesmerizing playing of Gilmour, does something really deep to my soul that May doesnt seem to get into quite as deeply.

                  HOWEVER, I pick Brian May in the end over Gilmour, because I find myself in the mood to listen to Queen more often than Pink Floyd, although not by much, the tiniest amount actually, and this is why I thought this would make a good poll.

                  Or....... I could have just simply said Brian May, and saved you from all this.

                      May is great, but he isn't even in the same league as Gimour IMO.
