    Actually that’s a great one. (All have been, but in a sense this is the perfect rock guitar solo)

    The guitar solos on the old Carpenter hits still surprise me.

    Here's fun a little two note solo. Starts at 0:25. It's great for beginners who want an easy figure-it-out-yourself guitar quiz. Extra credit for naming the interval between the last two notes.
