    Some good ones in that video. Not so sure about the Lukather solo at No. 1 though.

    A few others I can think of:

    Henry McCullough on My Love by Wings
    David Spinozza on Aisumasen by John Lennon
    David Gilmour on Mudmen by Pink Floyd
    Roddy Frame on Oblivious by Aztec Camera
    John Alder on Back Of My Hand by The Jags
    George Harrison on Old Brown Shoe by the Beatles

    I'm late to this thread but here goes. Utterly brilliant, brilliant, guitar solo by Tommy Keene comes in at around 5.25.

    The Cars were my first favorite band as a teen in the 80s. I have pretty much all their albums still, and yet I liked - but never loved - the guitar solos. I always found them a bit too perfect (rigid?). But for some reason I've had this 'Shake it Up' solo in my head on and off the last few weeks, wondering what kind of pickups they were (I wondered if they might be Gretch Filtertrons), and I can see in the video they look like strat single coils.

    You posting the video made me go back and reevaluate those early high school year songs when I didn't know nothing about nothin, especially not guitars. This really is a good solo and there's a reason I always remember this Cars solo over others. I'm also glad I've been reintroduced to the name Elliot Easton. I had forgotten that name. Thanks for sharing!

    (Love his guitar work in "Moving in Stereo", though not really a solo).

    Well done for mentioning Badfinger. In my opinion a really great band. Also one of the most tragic stories in rock history.

    Watch and learn from Rick daily.
    I don't have his musical tastes and think he underrates Dire Straits, but hey, everyone has their tastes.
    Theory wise the guy has a lot to offer. He's on my Youtube list of favourites.

    I always had a soft spot for Hit Me with Your Best Shot by Neil Geraldo playing the solo with Pat Benatar. Interesting solo I think.
