    Identify your favo(u)rite guitar solo

    Okay.... the air guitar thread got me thinking, and instead of degenerating that thread, I thought I'd start a new one.

    So what's your favorite guitar solo? It doesn't have to be rock/metal... it can be any musical genre.


    My faves:
    Jimi Hendrix, All along the Watchtower (rock)
    Tinsley Ellis, The Axe (blues/rock)

    I looooooooooooove Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child". There's a guy who plays in one of the subway stations here who does an awesome imitation - great to hear echoing through the whole place!

    Sting has one, it's a little on the latin side, and I love it.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    guitar

    Maybe a new string: Does anyone have or play a guitar. What make, model, year etc. I have an old Alverez folk (laminant top) and my Dad's old Gibson L-5.

    2001 Mexican Telecaster
    Early 90's Washburn KC40V (cheesy and toneless- probably bound for e-bay)
    2000 Ibanez AK-something, acoustic/electic

    I'm lucky enough to have a Marshall JCM 800 that my grandparents helped me get when I was in high school for a few hundred. They're more sought after now.

    Now all I need is time to play the darn things.

    ahh, Iron Maiden and Metallica. I agree, can't go wrong with either, or for that matter Slayer(Kerry King rules!). Death Angle 'bored' is pretty good too.

    Even though they're not solo's prese, I love any of the riffs put out by The Clash, Fugazi, Jawbreaker, Murder City Devils, and Modest Mouse too. Joe Strummer put out Global a gogo a few years before he passed if you want a truely quality piece of musicianship, pick this CD up. Amazing.
    You're more boring than you know.

    Frank Zappa solo's, especially off of Joe's Garage album and you can't do that on radio anymore

    Pete Townsend - there are a few on quadraphenia plus the pop favourites.

    I know there are more...

    Guitar Heaven

    Any of Frank Zappa's - in additon to being a superb contemporary composer and social critic extraordinaire, the guy had an incredible set of chops.

    John McLaughlin - On Miles Davis session "Jack Johnson."

    Gotta wear shades

    I love the guitar solo, which is the intro to Sweet Jane. I think that the gutairist on the Rock and Roll Animal album became a college professor.

    Guitar solos... are they really necessary? Well, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and CCR did some of the best, in fact, CCR is what I'm listening to right now...

    My equipment:

    Ibanez Artist 1980
    Gibson S-1 1974
    Mesa Boogie T-22+ all tube combo
    Son of Mesa Boogie. 60 W all tube combo (LOUD!)

    Yes, I play.

    Planners, keep on rockin'!!!

    If I have to pick....

    Jerry Garcia Band
    12-2-1983 Tower Theatre, Upper Darby, PA
    Someday Baby

    Sooooooo electric!

  25. #25
    Brian May (Queen) - We Will Rock You - and that's the original version, not some crappy preteen boyband version (ergh!)

    And even though it's not a solo, I really like the beginning of the Hell Freezes Over version of Hotel California.
    Glorious Technicolor, Breath-Taking CinemaScope and Stereophonic Sound!
