    Ok! This one may just get me into trouble?

    Don't know the player/s?
    Artist is David Allan Coe
    Song is (gonna spell it wrong) "Come stains on the pillow"

    Even though this song is dirty and was probably what attracted me to it initially, I just love the band behind him on this track, especially the guitarists! It's been my favourite country track for almost a year now. The crude lyrical content aside, it's a damn fine song! Simple, but effective.

    Any note brad paisley has ever played on record, but in particular the solos in "little moments", "mud on the tires" and "wrapped around".

    Brent on david ball's "thinking problem" and Alan Jackson's Don't rock the jukebox.

    James Burton on Gram Parsons- Grievous Angel

    Roy Nichols on Merle's "Branded Man"-short and sweet

    Dunno who played on Hank I's "Move it on Over" but thats a great solo too.

    Lonesome Fugitive

    I had to go look up the title by googling "merle haggard highway is my home" :oops:

    i'm no encyclopedia when it comes to knowing the names of old country songs. but man, that is an awesome solo. awesome song too... when i read the title of this thread, that song immediately popped into my head. i agree 100% with Tim Bowen on this take.

    Somewhere there's a live cut of Merle doing Workin' Man Blues.Roy Nichol's take on the guitar solo will make your ears radioactive.

    One and only one

    Derailers - Lover's Lie

    Why? This song start with a lick...that never ends. If you listen to the intro it basically sounds like the riff never ends all the way through the song. It is basically, and song/lead

    It is the only song I have heard in recent memory since some of the older Merle recordings where he let Roy play lead in the background while he sang.

    That's the way Love Goes

    Probably the worlds easiest solo to play but man does it ever fit that song perfectly.

    Different ones for different reasons...

    Simplicity: Steve Wariner on "River to the Sea"

    Tone: Brad Paisley on just about anything...but particularly on "Long Sermon"

    Fun: Keith Urban on "Some Days You Gotta Dance" (Ranch version)

    Clean Twang: Brent Mason (I believe) on Clint Black's: "Nothin' But the Taillights"

    Feel over speed: Pete Anderson on Dwight's "Fast as You"

    B-Bender work: Jimmy Olander on Diamond Rio's "Unbelievable"

    Old School Favs: Anything on record by Don Rich, James Burton, or Jerry Reed

    1 ) Merle Haggard - That's the Way Love Goes

    2 ) Merle Haggard - Going Where the Lonely Go

    3 ) Buck Owens & Don Rich - Tiger by the Tail

    Just about anything Roy Nichols, Reggie Young, Don Rich, or Red Volkert ever did is top of the heap for me. Not to slight any of the new talent, but these guys are/were perfection.

    One of my favorite songs, period, not just for the solo.

    John5 - "Gein With Envy"

    To me the solo may as well be from start to finish!

    :lol: :lol: :lol: GREAT song.

    I sit around and sing it all the time in motel rooms and crack my bass player up. The first solo, where its just guitar, is killer. I love the chicken pickin licks.
    Just a really well written song. DAC is slowly becoming my favorite songwriter of all time.
    Other favorites by DAC:
    I Still Sing The Old Songs
    River
    N***** F*****

    I was going to pick that one- James Burton on Merle's "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive".

    Everything the song needs, and nuthin' it don't.

    A few that do it for me...

    Pete Anderson...Dwight Yoakam's version of Little Sister (both solos are killer)

    Albert Lee...Dave Edmunds' Sweet Little Lisa

    Willie Nelson...Blue Eyes Cryin' In the Rain (The solo just fits the song perfectly.)

    Hag's "Workin' Man Blues"...Be it with James Burton or Roy nichols, you can't go wrong either way.

    Clarence White...Everything from the Byrds "Live at the Filmore". That is THE B-Bender gospel.

    Later...
