Pretty much any track on Santana's Moonflower album.
No, no, no. This is a middle-aged twat bonking his gitar on video.
Has anyone suggested Thin Lizzy, whiskey in the jar yet?
Comfortably Numb is a melody suited for being played loud enough to measure on the Richter Scale as opposed to in dBa...
Ok, how about SRV - Texas Flood at El Mocambo?
Man that is a tough question to answer. I don't think I can name just one... Actually I would say that it just changes all the time.
But I'll have to say Joe Satriani will have been the most on my list. Just about any of his solo's are just really great - always very well played.
oh yeah Stevie is amazing i really like his voodoo child cover to
yeah man pink floyd is on of my all time favorites
How could we forget Eruption - Eddie Van Halen
haha yeah man that's crazy awesome
Good playing, but hardly original.Stolen actually.From the tap style, to the notes played.
The hell you say????
Yup.Check out Ace Frehley's solo on Kiss Alive 2.Now compare the dates between that album, and the VH album.
Hmm, there are way too much great guitar solos out there...
This one just came to my mind, really great solo by Petrucci:
The Spirit Carries On - Dream Theater (from 2:50 onwards in the song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zm1O6MSRo1c (From 5:40 in the vid)
Joe Satriani, from 1986 to present.
I'm also a huge Dream Theater fan, and a guitar player (are there actually any non-musician DT fans?). I remember an interview with Petrucci telling the tale of him struggling to finish that solo, sitting in the studio with Mike Portnoy, bouncing ideas off him. It's basically him channeling Gilmour, and then throwing on some patented Petrucci shred runs.
Speaking of Gilmour, his playing always gets me. I enjoy and play lots of technically-oriented stuff, but hand me a guitar and I usually play the 'Time' solo. I love it!
+1 for steve and that solo
Nothing compares to Prince.
Vai, Satriani, Clapton, Hendrix, King, Halen, etc...
Nothing compares to this "show stealing" guitar solo. Makes your mouth drop and gives you goosebumps.
I mean...c'mon. Seriously.
too many to list and most have already been said but yes the op's link is awesome
Ashes in Your Mouth by Megadeth
Angel of Death by Slayer's Hanneman and King
The Crusade by Trivium
to me without a doubt "Van Halen - Love Walks In" the solo by Sammy Hagar during the Live '86, it's not very technical but this solo has always touched me like no other solo and imo it's the best solo i've ever heard.
it's even better than the original solo played by Eddie Van Halen himself, it's different too.
2:20 to 3:05 , then the epic final solo @ 3:55 till the end.
"Computer God" by Black Sabbath.. about 4:15 in.
Also, have to go along with Home Sweet Home.. excellent solo there as well.
Metallica- Welcome home (Sanitarium)
