This one fits the bill. Short, but so right...beautiful melody, phrasing and tone:
Berton Averre plays fantastic lead guitar. His body of work with the Knack is as good as any guitar player's out there. Beautiful, melodic, soulful: consistently great lead guitar work that does not get the credit it deserves.
I must check him out more. I had the album back in the day, but I'm really only familiar with this song.
Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green) - Oh Well!
I just dig the melody and tone on this whole song as well the solo is right at the end.
That solo in Another Nail For My Heart is just great. The way it flows he makes it sound easy.
Another one for consideration:
Here is one that makes me sick. Lol.
Full of win, even without teles.
Sorry it took so long but i had to think about this. This solo is not something I'd learn note for note but it literally sounds sick... like Richard Lloyd is vomiting 16th notes all over the song. And the stuttering discord it brings is a brilliant contrast to the strong melody.
Or maybe I should say that it's like jalapenos with fried eggs.
What ! This hasn t been mentioned yet !?
Or this, tho some stations cut the solo.
I won t post the link but the solo on "Tonight She Comes" is one of the best of all time.
It was obscure and only a hit w me and my friends so sorry to get off course, but...
Go Bad Bobby.
One of Alex's best solo. Sadly it ends too soon.
This has always been one of my fav's. Solo starts around 5:45. My understanding this part was originally a drum solo. Frank added the guitar work in the studio.
And of course the best guitar solo ever recorded.
I have a little anger over this one... Paul Burlison made a CAREER out of this solo, and never once had the decency to tell anyone that it was Grady Martin and not him at all. That the producer felt Paul wasn't good enough for recording, so he called in the top gun of Nashville to handle it. It is a great solo.
Good thread. For much of my life, I thought that some of the sickest solos were on live records where they players were doing something a bit different than in the studio. Jimmy Page always struck me as a guy who perhaps had to "reinvent" his songs live so that they could actually be played. Solos that come to mind are Bill Nelson's breaks on "Mill Street Junction" on the "Live In The Air Age Record." I am also big on "intro solos" so the one from "Sails of Charon" is way up there even though I discovered it very late. Audley Freed's intro on the version of "Wiser Time " found on "Black Crowes live is short, but sweet!!! Actually, both guys playing on that song kick ass. But still that may be the only time that any of the "substitute teachers" in tat band did a job equal to Marc Ford. My favorite one of those "intro solos" may be one from an album that actually pisses me off today. When the soundtrack from Zep's "SongRemains the Same"movie was released, many said that the shows from MSG were at the end of the tour and hand was a bit tied, blah, blah, blah. I disagreed. i felt that there were some amazing performances on that record and in the film, although the best one got interrupted with the bit about the hotel safe robbery. That was "Since I've Been Loving You." The first time that I saw that particular "opening solo" my face melted. Suffice to say that I was pleased that an uninterrupted version of the song showed up on the "remastered" album. Of course, the problem is that the album was not actually remastered. In some cases, alternate performances from the other nights of the MSG run were substituted and in a couple of cases, I feel that the current versions are inferior performances. "No Quarter" comes to mind. With that said, if you want mind bending solos, check out any that you can find from that "73 tour.
