    I always liked the twin leads in "Still The One" Orleans at 1:38

    Hah, beat me to it. I was going to nominate this one.
    Though the Cars had a bunch of hits already before this song came out, this was the song that caused me to say, "who is that guitar player?"
    The solo is so melodic, and technically amazing but still totally hummable. To me, this is like a blueprint for what a good solo should be.

    Most people didn't realize at the time that it's McCartney who plays the solo on this:

    Last week I looked up," top 100 guitar solos of all time". 50 of them I had never heard, 20 of them I didn't agree with, 20 of them were WTF, I only agreed with 10 of them. Shows you what I know.

    I'm not really much of a 'Van Hagar' fan, as I really prefer the earliest VH material.
    But this relatively short solo from Eddie has just always been one of my favorites:

    Elliot Randall--completely great solo.
    Played his Strat with a HB in the bridge through an SVT, which was sitting in the studio.
    He said this was the first take.
    People at the session said his cold run through, for levels, was even better, and they were kicking themselves it wasn't recorded.
    Pretty rippin sh*t.

    Did we have those two yet?

    They may also count as perfect rock songs.

    I saw them live a couple of times. Played just as perfect as on the record.

    This is the one I was gonna post. Brilliant solo piece. I still have trouble mastering it. :p



    Love this one too. Always thought it was similar in taste.

    I always liked this one. Nothing flashy; just very subtle and melodic. And easy enough for even me to learn.

    I had the 45. The B-Side to this was just as good and overall a better song. Nothing says 70s rock like...
