    Not exactly a solo...

    How about the jam at the end of "The End" on The Beatles' Abbey Road? John, Paul, and George do some major ass-kicking at the end of that album!

    Several different songs... And when he got together with his brother Jimmie, ah, it was fun.


    Prime stuff. Stevie was great.
    Have you heard Jimmy's version of "Six Strings Down?"

    Yes, but I don't own a copy...

    I could swear he's done that live with the Fab T-Birds, too.

    The new Skepticism (Finnish "funeral doom" metal band) album Farmakon has some great guitar interludes (described by one reviewer as a "sour guitar) that come in over the dire-sounding organ and drum lines. Awesome stuff-not sure its really a guitar "solo," but still great.

    Happy to see that there are a few other metalheads here amongst all the folk and country blues and pop fans

    Kind of on Topic

    Went to see Sonic Youth at free outdoor show last night and thought they were brilliant. They had they kind of increadible guitar playing and technical prowess you rarely see in a live show. I don't know if they played a single song without a 5-10 minute break of guitar noise. Freaking awesome

    I've always loved Sonic Youth. Awesome stuff. Daydream Nation has to be one of my favorite albums.

    I saw them for the first time a few months ago and you're right. I always wondered if they could pull their songs off live but they're even better.

    How about Frank Zappa on (spelling?) Zot Allures "Black Napkins".

    I saw Jimmy in Akron a few years ago and he did it. He was billed just as himself.

    CCR - “Heard it through the grape vine”

    Song is a little overplayed, but the guitar solo rocks NATIONWIDE!

    Are you talking about the long version of "I heard it through..." by CCR? I don't even think the single version had a solo - I think it was cut short...

    Strongly agree with Alan (end of Beatle's song "The End" with McCartney, Harrison, and Lennon jumping in and out). I play this song over and over and over.

    Would add The Who's "We're Not Gonna Take It" at Isle of Wight Festival (live album).

    Would also add Ten Year's After and Jimmy Hendrix on Woodstock album.

    Any solo on the first three Zep albums.

    Nearly lost my hearing on these. Huh, wh'd ya say?

    Could add oh so much more....
