Knowing this group, we'll get lists of everybody's 5 HUNDRED favorite guitar solos. I would be part of that group, , but here's a selection to get the thread going (these aren't necessarily ranked, btw):

#1 Duane Allman, Stormy Monday from AFE, especially the last 6 of the first 12 bars, and the 1st six of the second 12 bars. The emotional build-up and climax is just incredible. There was a time when I could perfectly time how long to hold down my car's CD player's "back" button to rewind back to the beginning of the solo. If I listened to the song once, I'd probably listen to Duane's solo four times.

#2 Frank Zappa - so many to choose from, but a personal favorite would be Treacherous Cretins, from Shut up 'n play yer guitar, disc 1.

#3 Carlos Santana - Europa. Has to be one of the most emotionally-charged tunes I've ever heard.

#4 Jimi Hendrix - Born Under a Bad Sign - instrumental version from the "Blues" album. If somebody from another planet were to drop in and ask "so what what this Jimi Hendrix guy all about?," this is the track I'd play for them.

Got the bluesy jazzy fusionesque stuff represented here . . . we need some good hard or progressive rock.

Hmmm.

#5 Steve Howe, Perpetual Change from Yessongs.


Like I said, just a few picks to get the thread started. Carry on.


Edit: Title modification

The GREATEST guitar solo of all time, Allen, Gary, and Steve on Freebird!




Duane and Dickey on Liz Reed live. Hell, even Gregg's solo kicks ass!

Ritchie Blackmore on Smoke On The Water, Made In Japan

Rory Gallagher on Walk On Hot Coals, Irish Tour

Toni Iommi on Heaven And Hell, Heaven And Hell

Stevie Ray Vaughn's Little Wing, The Sky Is Crying








I'll probably think of 5 more tomorrow!

Were I to do a 2nd five, Dickey's BWIAB solo would certainly be on it. My favorite piece of Warren's work from that period would have to be his Blue Sky slide solos, especially the one from Holmdel, NJ in '94.

These should have a NO ABB/Family tag on them....everyone will pick pretty much from the ABB catalog otherwise....It's more fun when people have to dig a little deeper..

1) "Mercury Blues"..David Lindley & El Rayo X...Simply some of the nastiest slide guitar ever..

2) "Kid Charlemagne"..Steely Dan...Still blows me away

3) "Can't you hear me Knockin'"...Classic from the Stones

4) "Rock and Roll Hootchie Coo"..Rick Derringer

5) "Shake it up"..The Cars...Elliot Easton doesn't get enough love

Honorable mention: "Sweet Jane"...Lou Reed's "Rock n' Roll Animal"..w/Hunter & Wagner

1. Jimmy Herring - Playing "Tumbling Down" with the Col. Bruce and the Codetalkers from Smilefest - 2005-5-27 I think it was.

2. Santana - Samba Pa Ti (Abraxas)

3. Stevie Ray Vaughn - Lenny (Texas Flood)

4. Rolling Stones - Can't You Hear Me Knocking (Sticky fingers)

5. Joe Bonamassa - Mountain Time (From Shepherds Bush)

I'm sure I could think of ones I like just as much... those were just the first to come to mind

I agree with the above poster, so I'm gonna completely skip the ABB and anything related.

1. Free Bird- Skynyrd
2. Still Got The Blues- Gary Moore
3. Texas Flood- SRV
4. For The Love of God-Steve Vai
5. Maggot Brain- Funkadelic-both Eddie Hazel's original and Michael Hampton's on one of the live albums are just incredible.

HM: Roy Buchanan- The Messiah Will Come Again, Joe Bonamassa- Sloe Gin

For non ABB; I always thought the solo from Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise" was pretty darn good as is David G in Pink Floyd's "Time"
