Closely related to another post, but totally different.
Here is my list:
1- pink floyd's only "solo": comfortably numb
2- Any or most of Slash's solos: sweet child'o mine, double-talkin' jive, and most of "use your illusion" songs
3- jimi hendrix - all along the watchtower, voodoo child (slight return), come on (let the good times roll)
and equally, not in any particular order:
metallica - unforgiven, or one
manowar - hail and kill
led zeppelin - heartbreaker
deep purple - highway star, made in japan version
eric clapton - cocaine
pearl jam - alive

Now THIS is where Comfortably Numb deserves to win the award.
David Gilmour's guitar solo in this song is spine-chillingly powerful...it absorbs you and everything around you and captivates you as you listen to it. One of the most moving, groundshaking solos I have ever heard. Try listening to this song when you're going through some pain. My God what this song does for you when you've had a bad day. The music practically vents all of your emotions...and at the end leaves you almost cleansed...relieved...it ends all too quickly.

OK, a bit baised from a Journey fan, but I vote for Neal Schon on "captured" and a personal favorite is his randition in "Colors of the Spirit". The latter sometimes makes me close my eyes and soak it in.

Definately Guns n' Roses solo's. I LOVE that part in November Rain. Always always crank it up in the car when it reaches that part. The beginning of Sweet Child O' Mine - Sweeeet
Metallica, Unforgiven, just love that song in general aside from the guitar.
Uh oh, Metallica, Enter Sandman time! Exit light! Enter night! Take my hand. Off to never never land. Hee hee hee hee hee...........
