Nothing beats a memorable guitar solo in a classic rock song. I am sure everyone here has a favorite. Here are mine:

PEG (Steely Dan) short but sweet. Played by Jay Graydon.

SWEET WINE (Cream) one of Eric's finest on record.

I NEED A LOVER (John Cougar Mellencamp) Played by Larry Crane. Wailing!

FREEBIRD (Skynyrd) By the late great Allen Collins.

YDLM Fillmore East has some incendary stuff, but beyond Duane (and I could list many)

this solo sets the hair on the back of my neck up EVERY time:

Eric Clapton, guesting on Stephen Stills "Go Back Home" (1970) he flies in out of nowhere and just and just sets the flippin' joint on fire..... it to me, is guitar perfection.

this one might be out there but I've always held Alex Lifeson's solo in La Villa Strangiato as one of my all time faves.

anothers are Tom Sholz on Hitch A Ride and Derek's solo on For My Brother (Live At The Georgia Theater)

That is a very hot solo, and a rather undervalued one.

For the Allman Brothers, my favorite would probably be Duane post-drums on Mountain Jam. That is a Master's course on awesomeness. Nothing like it.

On commercially released recordings:

Duane on the LAFE IMOER, it's insane.

Warren on the live Rocking Horse on the One Way Out live album.

Derek on "700 Houses" on his wife's great current album.

Derek on "High Cost of Low Living" on the One Way Out album.

Dickey on the original studio Jessica.

Jimmy Page on "Since I been Loving You" and on "Celebration Day" -- polar opposites of expansiveness and concise-itude, on the same record.

Lowell George on the live "Mercenary Territory" from Waiting for Columbus.

Jimi's solo on "All Along the Watchtower."

Duane on the LAFE "Stormy Monday"

The entire instrumental "Bo's Bounce" by Bo Diddley.

The three-way guitar duel between George, John and Paul on side 2 of Abbey Road.

Mick Taylor's steel guitar on "Torn and Frayed."

Almost any solo by the great Buddy Miller.

Almost any solo by the great great Chris Whitley.

And tons of stuff by various old blues guys.

...oh, and I forgot Jerry Garcia on the live "Morning Dew" from Europe '72, the final solo on that where he goes double-stop double-time. It's a beautiful, melodic, emotional solo that builds and has no false moments at all.

Agree with a lot of what's already been mentioned - Duane, Dickey, Derek, Warren, SRV, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, DAVID GILMOUR, ... (happy to see Beck's Because We've Ended as Lovers and Alvin Lee's Goin Home here )

Adding Mick Taylor on Moonlight Mile and Time Waits for No One
and Carlos Santana on Europa and Samba Pa Ti (which have brought me to tears by their lovliness)

Two of my favorites, as well. Add to those: Song of the Wind from Caravanserai.

And there are SO many Zappa solos that are worthy of mention. Treacherous Cretins from Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar is one of my most oft-listened solos.

It is very cool to be in the company of so many that know so much. Some of the pics that were mentioned are so right on for me.
JH Machine Gun, Carlos (although I would drop in Soul Sac with the others), Knopfler, Alvin Lee, Zappa Zoot Allures,
Might have to throw in Martin Barre Crosseyed Mary or Aqualung, Keith Sympathy Devil and Townsend (eventhough he is a weirdo)
