Favorite Guitar Solo(s)

What is your favorite guitar solo(s) that you can listen to over and over again? Mines would be John Mayer's slow dancing in a burning room live in LA. Every time he rips into that solo I get chills on the side of my face.

Anything from 70s, 80s Alex Lifeson. One of the most over looked guys around in my eyes.

Marc Ford's solo on the Black Crowes' Sometimes Salvation.

Tone and Feel = Tasty!!!!



start listening around 1:51 for a feel of the song if you don't know it.

The solo in MJ's "Beat it". It has stood the test of time, and it's a simple, yet dynamic and energetic, and it's just epic in legendary proportions.

I've always been partial to Ian Hunter's intro to Sweet Jane for Lou Reed



And just about any of the earlier Dickey Betts with ABB (Jessica, Blue Sky)

Cheers,
Doug

This, but almost any Steely Dan solo is pretty awesome. the guitar breaks in My Old School, por ejemplo...

this...pretty amazing interplay between those two: Steve Hunter (not Ian) and Dick Wagner

And these:

Zoot Allures and Black Napkins by Frank Zappa. Watermelon in Easter Hay and Deathless Horsie are pretty special, too.

For great tone and solo structure it would be Lindsey Buckingham on "Frozen Love" from the 1973 album, Buckingham Nicks. For sheer Harrison cool, "She's a Woman." For outstanding blues rock phrasing, "Outside Woman Blues" off Cream's Disraeli Gears. For twang deluxe, Brent Mason on AJ's "Mercury Blues."

For me, the best solos are those that have a distinct melodic content. I'm thinking ones you can sing along with.

Some of my favourites that spring to mind are:

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb - played by David Gilmour. Here's the live version on Roger Waters' recent tour where David Gilmour made a surprise appearance - wonderful!!

http://youtu.be/hUYzQaCCt2o

Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven

http://youtu.be/8pPvNqOb6RA

The Eagles - Hotel California

http://youtu.be/LF8SgTTkMpA


And for those who like ultra simple, but effective, solos - how about Neil Young's Cinnamon Girl? One note solo over the changes, sounds great!

I've been listening to a lot of David Gilmour lately.

I like Boston, but would never consider myself a fan. I reckon Tom Scholtz is another criminally underrated guitarist. My fave solo of all time never features in any "best of"s, but I reckon it's just perfect - melodic, flash in just enough measure, and structured with a start, beginning and end. Perfection.

Not the greatest quality but a superb performance:

Bodhisatttva - Steely Dan

Especially the first one played by Denny Dias.

Lots of Steely Dan picks. For me it's Skunk Baxter, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number".

Burning Heart from Adrian Vandenberg. It's as close to perfect as I've heard.

Solo starts at 2:29
