    Wow... McDonald And Giles! That's one you don't hear about. That album, The Cheerful Insanity of Giles Giles And Fripp, and Pete Sinfields's Still are three essential albums for serious Crimson fans.

    She went to New Orleans right after she graduated from Berklee. When my grandson complains about not getting better faster, I tell him about her practicing 15 hours a day while she was at Berklee. She wasn't playing games on her phone and wishing she played better. Nobody swung harder than Emily, some like Barney Kessel and Wes Montgomery swung hard, but Emily was right there with the best.

    He's using a pentatonic scale, but he steps "outside" for moment by moving a pentatonic lick down chromatically (changing keys one fret at a time,)

    My favorite solos tend to be blues and jazz tracks, and it seems like this is a thread about solos on pop tunes. So, here's what I have to offer:

    I knew her at Berklee. She was in one of my classes. Everybody called her “Boots” because she always wore cowboy boots. Always nice to everybody. Didn’t know she was such a good guitarist at the time. I think she OD’d; darn shame.

    The tone, the touch, the economy of just the right notes and no more. Leslie West of Mountain, "Mississippi Queen".

    The second solo on Eric Johnson’s Desert Rose really, uh, affects me.
    It’s got a lot of interesting/intriguing elements.
    The solo is very passionate sounding, with feedback, tremelo bar use, almost regal sounding passages, and torrents of notes.
    I’m a huge fan of the guy, and I have been, for 45 years.
    I first heard/saw him in l974.
    He just keeps getting better!

    Purple Rain... there is a whole lot of Prince that could fit in this thread, but its easy to forget that song in particular had an epic solo.

    This is one of my favorite Jerry Garcia solos. It's pretty simple, but it just fits the song so well. There's a little lick as it fades out that still gives me chills.
