    Everything Beck plays here I like...his leads, his rhythm, everything. He was so on for this it's ridiculous. I remember reading an interview where Clapton talks about this performance. Eric said he was partially responsible for organizing this event and by the time he got onstage he was pretty tired. But he also had the confidence to not be threatened by Beck's playing. After the show he simply acknowledged Jeff as being one of the best ever. Jeff certainly was that night.

    The solo in this: those major scale runs.

    I could do fifty Brian May moments.

    Not the original but a nice, near perfect dissection of an incredible intro and classic Hendrix embellishments...

    First thing that comes to mind is really anything from Stax where Steve Cropper is playing.
    Some examples would be the little riffs he does on Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay

    As well as the intro of Soul Man (and the rest of the song too of course)


    Next thing I think of would be the intro to Can't You Hear Me Knocking. That lone guitar followed by one great rhythm on the drums just sounds [email protected] Can't forget that funky bass line either.


    Alright one more. The first solo Gilmour takes on Comfortably Numb is possibly my favorite of all time. For this video it starts at 2:37.

    It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll. Simplicity itself and always sounds so fresh. I think Bon Scott era AC/DC is timeless.

    Stevie Ray Vaughn's Tightrope. The solo starts at about 1:20, and after his first two phrases, you know what note is coming next, but e pauses an extra 2 or 30 beats before giving it to you. Wen you're driving and only half listening, that space does some funky attention grabbing on your brain. "Here comes that note. Wait, where is that note? Why isn't it here yet? What's going on?! THERE IT IS!!!" One time my roommate and I experienced this at the exact same time, and after he plays that note we just looked at each other like we just ate the best pizza we'd ever had.

    From a fellow TDPRI member:


    His playing from about 2:00 is just exhilarating.
