there are so many songs out there that i admire so much, i wish i had written, sung or performed them. same with guitar or piano solos.

if you had to boil it down to one song that you wish you had written or solo that you had written/performed, what would it be? and add details why if you would.

i would had loved to have written and performed Suite: Judy Blue Eyes. The song is just a perfectly lyrical song and a snapshot of music from the late sixties.

and for a guitar solo, i would have loved if performed the Derek Trucks guitar solo from 3-20-00 Blue Sky at the Beacon. Just a perfect solo in every way on my favorite live concert song.

any takers?

Anyone in which I the artist would become filthy rich off of, instead of the record label.

The Bands It Makes No Difference. The song is well written, but Ricks voice makes the song shine for me.

Written: Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well'. Considering the number of cover versions of the song, as well as the plethora of songs that it influenced (one specific example: Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog"), it just raised the "Peter Green" bar up quite a lofty bit.

Performed: 1) either guitar part on the Fillmore version of "Liz Reed" or 2) the piano in the studio version of "Jessica"

Three come to mind immediately:

Lowell George's - "Willin' "
John Prine's - "Angel from Montgomery"
Gregg Allman's - "Come and go Blues"

The lyrics and vocal inflections.

Warren Haynes' solo in "Back Where It All Begins" on 2nd Set.

it's so lyrical and he uses standard notes in different fingering positions making for interesting combinations and melodies. He builds it up from that first quick bent note into a monster that roars then slips back into its cave with those signature lines at the end of his solo that brings the band back together - it's and ending in the middle of the song, bringing us back where it all began for a few moments perfectly setting up Dickey's excellent excursion into the great beyond.
