This may be my favourite CCR song. Just so awesome.
American Girl: Mike Campbell, lead guitar:
Or "We Will Rock You" / "We are the Champions"
Well, I was quoting from page 6 and when I went to post we were on page 8!
Audley Freed is a great player who deserves a band equal to his talent. I thought he'd found it with Trigger Hippy.
NSFW lyrics, a great song with one of my favorite solos. I love the tone Dick Wagner gets.
It's easy to forget how surprising this solo was when it came out, and how much trouble it caused the Carpenters at the time. And Tony Peluso was an amazing disc jockey, too.
Lead guitar: Danny Cedrone
That song is so perfect, and the solo is exquisite. Nary a cliche is heard - but yes, it is WAY too brief.
I have to say that Larry Carlton plays one of the classiest solos ever in this classic!
Albert Lee shows the world how to tear up a tele:
That’s Jeff “Skunk” Baxter of Steely Dan and Doobie Bros fame. Someone said this is in G minor (I don’t have my guitar with me atm so I’ll buy that). So he’s just using the G minor pentatonic scale for most of the solo. At one point he does an F major arpeggio, which includes an A so that suggests either G Dorian or G Aeolian, but it’s just easier just to think of it as an F major arpeggio in an otherwise G minor pentatonic scale. He also does a chromatic run (repeating the same phrase in descending half steps) toward the end.
YES! Although it’s a tossup between this and “Peg” (Jay Graydon) in my book!
This was a huge hit way back when, with one of the coolest, slickest solos ever.
This was a pretty groundbreaking solo. Way cooler than your typical solo at the time. I lived and breathed Steely Dan.
Sorry, don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote this lol but I have to revise it.
He does the exact same lick at the very end of Steely Dan’s “My Old School” (which also deserves a mention on this thread). Someone said “Hot Stuff” is in G minor. So you’d be starting on the 15th fret, hold down the top 2 strings with your 3d finger, then: G-D - slide down to D flat, G flat- D flat- slide down to C, F-C - slide down to B, etc. It’s actually pretty easy. He also said it would be G down to C# then down to G an octave lower. However, with all due respect, I hear a perfect 4th between the first 2 notes and a definite half step slide down between the second and third notes of the pattern. Try it both ways and see what you think.
It's at 6:10.
Farris gets let off the leash at the end here:
