Juliette Valduriez Cuts Loose on Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Great Gig in the Sky’


In celebration of Dark Side of the Moon’s anniversary today, March 10, I’ve spent some time rummaging around YouTube listening to Pink Floyd.

One of my searches turned up videos of guitarist Juliette Valduriez digging into the mammoth tracks “The Great Gig in the Sky” (from 1973’s Dark Side) and “Comfortably Numb” (from 1979’s The Wall). Give a listen as she tackles the solos for both songs with some strong melodic playing and soulful bends. And check out the section around 1:26 into “Comfortably Numb” as Juliette lets off a flurry of 32nd notes.
