    This still sends chills down my spine every time. Steve Rothery is criminally ignored by so many in the US.

    Me too, I love the whole soundtrack, great bunch of musicians, especially Michael Brecker (tenor sax)-another great, gone too soon. The movie is terrific too. Thanks for the reminder I'm going to crank it up right now.;)

    I think one of the reasons I like the song so much (which closes the film) is because I can't separate the music from the film experience. Local Hero is such a "perfect" work of art in and of itself. I wish Bill Forsyth would start writing and directing again.....the film world needs him. And obviously, I wish he'd use Mark Knopfler on any soundtracks. ;)

    One of my faves is the version of "Let it Be" ( the non- Leslie one), where George just goes for it!, with the Les Paul
    Here we go!

    My guess is Tim Pierce. Emphasis on guess.

    Dire Straights- Brothers in Arms is one. The song gives me chills every time.
    But there are SO MANY.

    IMO it just doesn't get any more emotive than this. I still cry when I hear it.

    This was the last song on the last album that Stevie recorded just a few months before he died. What a way to go out...

    Every solo Adrian Belew played during his time with Talking Heads.
    There are songs from Frank Zappa I like a lot, but I was never much into his guitarplaying. With the exception of "Watermelon In Easter Hay", probably one of the simpliest, but most emotionally moving songs he ever did.

    Two emotive guitar solos, in no particular order.
