Favourite/Favorite Guitar Solos

Recommended Posts

ilovebender.com

Guns N' Roses wrote a lot of great music and Slash was a driving force behind that; so I could so easily post Guns N' Roses and listen to Slash.

 

But...

I want to highlight imo an underrated stroke of genius guitar work/solo...

I forget exactly which guitarist recorded what on this album so this solo to me is by ? of Axl's Nu GN'R Guns N' Roses; and I like the work that that bought about; including this song's guitar solo which has an accompanying mix track of quotes. 

This is the same song performed live.

 

 

This is not to say this is my favourite Guns N' Roses guitar solo, but it's one of them; and I feel, an unsung ditty with a genius I want to give recognition to.

 

What song's guitar solos do you like? Post them here.

Little Wing, a heritage, a song, a voice, such an amazing record.

 

 

 

It's also a song I'm learning atm, kinda.

Stands to reason that the first post here was a contribution by Buckethead, who would have been my pick for a solo. I'm not overly familiar (or keen) with his work with GNR but it's hard to deny that he works just as well in a formal band setting as he does working on his own. The man has an exhausting work ethic, and at his peak released over 100 albums in two years. It's hard to be a Buckethead fan because they aren't all zingers, but there's entire albums where the run time was just one big solo. I always viewed his music as a soundtrack to something that doesn't exist yet. When I was 16/17, I cut my teeth on his playing and I feel fortunate I became a fan at that time, because it was easily his most prolific and creative.

 

You'll have to pardon the needy title but this is a pretty good example of the man's talents.

 

Shortly after discovering Buckethead, my dad caught wind of the frankly autistic noodling and thought I'd like Frank Zappa. By his own admission, he wasn't a hardcore fan but the couple of records he'd heard he liked. He still had one in the attic, and I fell in love with Sheik Yerbouti. I did my own digging, and while the humour wasn't really my bag, I couldn't get enough of his attitude and his playing. I soon realised I was precisely the kind of fan he wouldn't like but that made me like him more.

 

This video showcases some of his more effortless solos. Admittedly they're not as good out of context but his playing is effortless and the tone is nigh-on perfect for me.

 

Other guitarists I enjoy the work of include Paul Gilbert, Mattias Eklundh, Prince, Randy Rhoads and Yngwie Malmsteen, but they all have some incredible solos that I can't be arsed to include for whatever reason.

putting aside the rest of this utterly face melting performance, the fill alone @ 1:30 by SRV is one of the greatest solo riffs ever plucked out of the cosmos, considering how he got from the beginning to the end of the scale.

probably helps when cocaine is pounding through your blood.

 

and beginning @ around 4 minutes, Terry Kath, for the win.

probably also with the assistance of some performance enhancing drugs.
