Actually, the best guitar solo is..........
« on: September 30, 2007, 12:55:29 PM »


The Eagles - Hotel California, electric version, not that soppy unplugged one.


Hammer Ons, Bends and Scales that are combined to the best choice and taste ever. Tastefully classic.

I'm not a fan of metal, or blues or hard rock, but I know skill when I hear it. And I still think this one tops 'em off. Way before shredders were born.


Pwned.

Robert Plant plays a mean guitar solo. Probably learned it from his sidekick - Jimmy Page.

In my opinion, I think the best guitar solo I have seen was Eric - I shot the sheriff at the Crossroads festival. Check it out:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2933378949178095532&amp;q=eric+clapton+sheriff&amp;total=113&amp;start=0&amp;num=10&amp;so=0&amp;type=search&amp;plindex=2

My second favorite is the Eagles as mentioned above.

Third has to be either freebird ( :ubershock:) or John Mayer - Man on the side:

It was kind of a joke. I loved the way it sounded so cheezy. But the notes are more-or-less correct. The drum seems a half-step out of time.

This is the real mcCoy:

Well, of course it's not one of the greatest guitar solos ever, not even close. Just commenting on the speed of the guitar for the late 60's.

I'm used to hearing songs in that style w/ my tab software.. the notes sounded right tho :>

This is one my favorite live performances that SRV ever did.

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Leave My Girl Alone (Austin City Limits live):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rVKiPNzPoY

Death metal guitarists typically sink into obscurity no matter how good they are, but one has managed to join the ranks of several AWESOME bands. He was a secondary lead guitarist on the Death album Spiritual Healing. He also was lead guitarist on Obituary's album Cause of Death. I believe he was also in Cancer for a while. He had his own band called Disincarnate for a while. He released a solo album or two. In the past he's authored monthly columns in a few guitar magazines. He's not like the majority of shredding death metal lead guitarists, his style is certainly recognizable by it's melodic processes.

James Murphy (Obituary) - Body Bag solo:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JMIFjIwHaE

James Murphy at NAMM 06:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31UG9Eqr5KE&feature=related

Another one of m favorite guitarists has always been Chuck Schuldiner of Death. Another guy with shotloads of talent and an instantly identifiable sound.

Death - Crystal Mountain (live):

Hmmm. I'm not going to make the claim this is the best solo EVER... but it's an example of the kind of guitar solos I like: ones that are inventive, unique, a little out there... yet never stop being musical.

From Steve Vai's 1984 album, Flex-Able, excerpt from track 07 entitled Call It Sleep:

http://tastyspleen.net/~quadz/steve_vai-flex-able-07-38.1.752-104.1.176.mp3


<soapbox> It's so crucial to me that solos be musical... it's so disappointing when some uber-skilled shredder gets up and plays what consitutes a few different scale patterns played very fast up and down the neck... I just want to yell at them, you've got the chops but no melody!! Go learn a charlie parker solo or something!! :D </soapbox>

Oh well anyway

:heart:
