Maybe not the "best" solo or your all time favorite but what you find most beautiful or emotional.

I thought of this listening to Clapton's Bell Bottom Blues solo.

My tops of this list would be his solo on Presence of The Lord from the D&tD Fillmore record.

I'd also go with the guitar / sax from It Makes No Difference from the Last Waltz.

And Duane at that true *solo* in You Don't Love Me.

Clapton's Old Love solo from 24 Nights too.

I'm sure there are more but those immediately jump to mind.

Can't go wrong with any of the aforementioned solos, but surprised no one has listed Jeff Beck Cause We've Ended as Lovers, Jimi's Little Wing or Wind Cries Mary, or possibly my all time favorite, Robin Trower's Daydream off the live album.

Brother Duane's slide solo on the extended Statesboro Blues on Live at Ludlow Garage in Cincy, April 1970. It's mellow but awesome! also Carlos Santana's solo on Now That You Know from off his CD, BLUES FOR SALVADOR.
AND WHOEVER MENTIONED BRO. DUANES SOLO IN Mt. Jam on EAP. Ditto !!! That one is fantastic. Have a great day brothers and sisters, peace.

Lots of great soloes mentioned here. But the MOST BEAUTIFUL SOLO has got to be Duane at the end of Layla. It's so beautiful it can make me cry

Duane: soul serenade; blue sky; one way out EAP and hot Lanta LAFE (beautiful in his use of tone and sustain even if not a "beautiful" narrative); Please Be Withe Me withCowboy; little Martha; dreams from first album and SF 71 both nights

Duane and Dickey's interplay and harmonies on the intro to EAP my jam; all of My Jam too.

Santana: samba pa ti; lots of Carlos's melodies

Jerry Garcia: eyes of the world from the G D movie

Dickey Betts: waiting for a train from Bob Dylan's jimmy Rogers tribute; blue sky EAP; nobody knows From Set I; one way out EAP (I think this is one of the definitive guitar solos in rock music period. Flawless); Bougainville

Warren Haynes: Captured from Lockin' 2013 (you need to get the soundboard/mule track of this. NEED to)

SRV: Riveara Patadise - live version (this is the version from a mixed artist live bootleg album that Carlos Santana released. Very, very good)

listen to just about this whole medley. Used to say if a woman wouldn't undress to this while dancing it was a lost cause

FZ's solo on Inca Roads from One Size Fits All.

And the previously mentioned Watermelon In Easter Hay. It may be Franks finest work.

This is the first thing I thought of (as well as "Inca Roads" and "Black Napkins"). I also dig all of Robben Ford's "Life Song: Song for Annie." Talk about beautiful. I also think Larry Carlton's "For Love Alone" is pretty gorgeous.

"Riviera Paradise" was a good call as well.

Cool thread.
