Hmm. There are so many.

Basically anything by Guns N' Roses, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, Pantera, Jeff Beck, Zeppelin, Ozzy (whoever was playing it), and so many more. I just love listening to anything with guitar.

if your talking about a composed solo not a jam like jerry garcia, trey...

id say just about anything by david gilmour,

especially love echoes (if you dont consider that a jam)
shine on you crazy diamond
time
money
comofrtably numb (first solo)
mother

id say so many i like are more of jams rather then solos...

but if you want real composed solos id go randy rhoads. amazing. i can hear it over and over and realize new things and how ingenious it is.

After 48 years it's hard to have a favorite since styles have changed but here goes:
Jethro Tull-Aqualung
Steely Dan-Bodhisattva
A7X-M.I.A.
John Petrucci-Glaskow Kiss
Dennis Cameron-(everything)

I could do this all day but these stick out mostly because the solos are structured around the rhythm not just an all out shred.

Probably one of my favorite Steely Dan songs! Larry Carlton is one of my favorite guitarists as well.

i prefer pretty simplicity over technical wizardry. dont' get me wrong, if you listen to some of those metal solos that are insanely fast they are very impressive. but they do not resonate with me as "great solos". sometimes they can get lost in the context of a song as a whole (i think a good solo should compliment the framing song well)

weezer has a lot of good solos on the blue album (so far the only weezer album i've ever listened to) and the solos are also good because they are easy enough that i can start to play them.

but one of my all time favorite solos is from muse's "hysteria".

btimm i also really like minus the bear's double-solo guitar rock-out in the middle of "into the mirror". i went to see them monday at this dump hole club. SOLD OUT. what in the world? i've been to that club 3-4 times before they've never had tickets. you just pay the cover and they stamp your hand. sold out? get outta here!

Yeah Dave Knudson has some sick solos gx. Not sure why that slipped my mind when posting, weird cause they are by far my favorite band. Maybe cause I have been in an early 90s kick. lol

I didn't see them in Charlotte, because I was in a bad mood and couldn't find anyone to come with me. Super regretted that decision.

what about... Dirty Projectors - No Intention. i really like that solo. if you go looking for it on youtube make sure you find the studio recording i've seen some live ones where he does it with an acoustic... not as good. lots of nifty guitar work on that album (Bitte Orca).

True gx1327. For me I can really appreciate both fast and slow solos and everything inbetween. As long as it's done well. Like the solo on Sunshine of Your Love by Clapton. It's slow and melodic. He plays it based on the melody of the song Blue Moon.

I agree Larry Carlton was great but Countdown to Ecstacy was Denny Dias and Jeff(Skunk) Baxter. I believe Skunk Baxter was the soloist on Bodhizattva.

Free - 'Alright now' for it's simplicity and tension building qualities.

Almost any solo by Richie Blackmore. Technically excellent and he keeps it in context with the song.

A7x - Dear God
The solo blows my mind, especially the pedalsteelguitarpart played by Greg Leisz is so tasty that I can feel every note on my tongue.

i'm not a big avenged sevenfold fan. but their first album was pretty good. it was a good rock album without being too metal-ish. i'm not even sure what you would classify them as. i guess what i'm trying to say is that i'm not a fan of their genre, but i enjoyed their first album regardless. and one song that stood out to me was "sieze the day". the solo is really cool.

First album? Are you talking about "sounding the seventh trumpet"?

A7x "Dear God" is amazing. The solo is a bit like "Hotel California" solo. They should do more things like Seize the Day and Dear God.
P.S - Wasn't sounding the 7th trumpet one of their old scream(o) albums?

Yes, but it was after a small demo their first real album, thats why I was wondering. I think gx is referring to city of evil. And yeah, the solo is quite hotel california like, I really love the structure of it.

i dug through my music collection when i got home. i meant their first commercial album (city of evil), and i kind of like seize the day but it's not the song i was thinking of. i was thinking of "strength of the world", with the guitar break-down part in the middle.

that album is actually really good. Strength of The World has a good intro i personaly think, and Listen to the end solo of "Sidewinder"(different album i think), it's a kinda nice acoustic solo.

To me, Strength of the World is a masterpiece. Should have been on the sound track for Braveheart. The acoustic solo at the end of Sidewinder is actually Synyster Gates and his dad( Brian Haner Sr.-AKA Papa Gates) trading licks.

Check out his vid here
