    This is my favorite guitar solo of all time. Each section has its own approach, tone, voice. It slows and builds brilliantly.

    'Satisfied' by Ian Moore comes to mind. Also, Mike Pinera's guitar work on the Blues Image classic song "Ride Captain Ride"....it's not only sublime, it's so tasty it hurts!

    All My Loving - The Beatles. The entire song is perfect. Great melody. Driving rhythm. Satisfying chord changes. Then George's rockabilly solo comes out of nowhere (man). God, I love that!

    Speaking of Nowhere Man. That solo is a favorite too.

    And Something.

    Time and Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. I also was blown away by Gilmour's intro to "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" on the Live Pulse CD/DVD release. Also Hotel California by the Eagles is great. How about Angus Young's solo on Let there Be Rock? Or the solo from April Wine's "Roller"?

    Same as my best solo ever : "Frozen Love" by Lindsey Buckingham. Electric solo starts at 3:57.

    The story of the throwaway soundcheck blues that became an underground classic is well known by now. I had this on a 45 single - it was too long to fit, so it faded out in the middle of the guitar solo, and faded in when you turned the disk over!
    Many years later I was astonished to learn that the ultra tasteful guitar work was not played by some jazz virtuoso like Kenny Burrell, but by future country superstar Albert Lee...

    :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I had to go dig that one up on youtube since I could not remember it.
    That was "sublime".

    Brings to mind the solo from Bonzo Dog Band's Canyons of Your Mind.

    On a sort of related note--Dr. Hook is the only band I have ever seen get literally booed off the stage.

    1) Adrian Belew... Three of a Perfect pair.

    2) Marrilion... Lavender, Misplaced childhood. Or King... Live at Hamersmith. Steve Rothery has to be the the most underrated guitar player in existence.

    3) Bill Frisell... White Fang... Unspeakable.

    Adam Ant... Press Darlings... Ant Invasion.

    Loves one Woman and many guitars.

    Bad Company - Feel Like Making Love

    Simple, nice mood shift in the middle of the song, acoustic guitar using triads up the neck to work the melody.

    But yeah... +1 for Steve Rothery.

    Mark Knopfler has a wealth to choose from - seems like any DS or MK album has candidates. What immediately comes to mind to me are Telegraph Road, Brothers In Arms, Going Home, portobello belle; just too many to name....
