@1:50 I always loved Larry's guitar style, and this solo really shows it off.

Also, DAT BASS!



@5:40 For obvious reasons. Not the best solo ever, but it sure is hella fast.



@2:32 First of all, it's Tom Motherf*cking Morello. Second, TOM MORELLO. And lastly, did I mention Tom Morello? 'Nuff Said.

Eruption - Eddie Van Halen. This why I love Van Halen. Best guitarist in the world right now IMO.

One - Kirk Hammet and James Hetfiled. Brilliant solo - especially this performance. (starts ay 6:25)

Free Bird - Allen Collins and Gary Rossington. Words cannot describe it. The chills that ring through your body do a nice job though wink.gif

And for good measure
Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour. Again, chills, all over my bod-eh!

These are my favourites, the ones that 'move' me. There are way tooo many solos I could list. If no one else lists some of them after a while, I'll add more.

All-time favorite here. May be an obvious choice, but it's just so overwhelmingly beautiful.


Comfortably Numb - a bit obvious, too, but it's on the same line with SCOM, really. Pink Floyd has always been a great influence, inspiration and a band I have loved, maybe it's hereditary in my case. No matter what, Comfortably Numb has one of the most beautiful solos ever.

I got a few.

Black Sabbath - Neon Knights


Black Sabbath - Turn up the Night


Thin Lizzy - Cold Sweat


Thin Lizzy - Cowboy Song


But I've actually been doing a lot of thinking about this subject lately. And the one that I like the most, surprisingly to me, was...

Guns N Roses - Paradise City

I think it's because those other ones are before my time really, and GnR was huge when I was five or six, when I discovered Rock n Roll.

And hell, why not a include a great bass solo too? Cause this is just pro-six-strings fascism



Tom Hamilton is one of the kings of bass. Hands down!

Just about anything from the human machine Michael Schenker, his whole career is stellar guitar work
Edward Van Halen as well, and Dokken's George Lynch is a power house on guitar
However, if I have to think of one, perhaps the end of Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd, who is DAVID GILMOUR playing, and you see why already chosen too, it's that monumental people know it and love it!

I've always been a fan of Hideto Matsumoto of X-Japan.

One that comes to mind is the solo in "Endless Rain", it's one of their ballad songs as opposed to their more aggressive stuff, but it's a great solo.

Prince's Purple Rain for me was one of those moments when an artist thought to appeal to one demographic reached millions. In a way Michael Jackson did this as well with BEAT IT, where EVH performed the solo for free and actually angered DLR over that. I like songs that build and then culminate in those solos, the Carpenters song Goodbye to Love is one I was enjoying over and over because of that exact thing

This solo is nice, real and has a lot of mood and emotion without if ever becoming cheesy. Straight up rock music with lovely delicate touches and licks. Such a beautiful song.

I always loved Slashes solo in Michael Jacksons song "Give into me"

And im not sure who it is, but the guitar and drum solo at the end of Eminem's song "Sing for the moment" is really good.

Dammit, ChossenOne already said Tornado of Souls by Megadeth so I'm gonna have to bring out the 'tallica:



@ 4:55 the beautiful solo from Hetfield comes in.



@ 2:48 starts a face-melting solo that lasts until 4:21!

I mentioned Comfortably Numb and then noticed it already mentioned, but that's fine I think.

I would also concur with Slash's tributes he does live, like the Godfather theme, Pink Floyd and others.

Sometimes it's short and sweet ones that I think are better then the song themselves, case in point ....
Keith Richard (or is it as mentioned here... RON WOOD?? haha) of The Stones, solo in SHATTERED, it's one of the Stones songs that was a jam, you just know it, and in the finished mix a solo was likely added;

Greatest guitar solo ever in my humble opinion.


8:04 is the beginning of the greatest end to a song I've ever heard, and a very, very underrated solo.

Don't know if you can class this as a guitar solo or a jam, but I'm gonna go for it anyway.

Blackpool '89. The Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection (live). John Squire starts shredding it up @4:00.



Seminal gig, and the thing I love about the most...I was fookin' there man! At that point I was at the back with my arms all over a lass called Veronica, FKN sweet!

Did I mention before, all those little Intros to Van Halen's songs is something Edward Van Halen has said to be what he considers his favorites and that fans should hear if they aren't familiar with the band yet. Over the summer, the old 5150 and Summer Nights come to mind, they are anthems of sorts.




Here, EVH uses Ned Stienbergers headstockless guitar, still done up in Ed's paintstripe scheme, and marked with the 5150 stencil, but needed for transposing with it's special tremolo design
