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


voila
what about you?

Definately and of Slash's, but in the "new gnr" Finck and Buckethead do a great job replacing Slash. Also Deep Purple's Child in time sounds great.

I forgot to mention-

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.



Comfortably Numb. And none other.

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.

My faves have mostly been mentioned, like Comfortably Numb. so I'd like to add one from left field.

A very effective guitar solo does not have to be loud. Listen to Eric Clapton's solo on "Lay Down Sally". It sounds almost as if he forgot to turn on the amp. But it's just perfect.

In no particular order:
Van Halen (Eddie VH) - "Eruption" (and just about any song they've put out)
Pink Floyd (Dave Gilmour) - "Comfortably Numb", High Hopes, On the Turning Away
Scorpions (Mathias Jabs) - "Six String Sting" from the World Wide Live album
Yngwie Malmsteen - "Flight Of Icarus Dream Suite"
Wishbone Ash - "Lady Jay"
Iron Maiden (Dave Murray) - every solo he put out between 1986 - 1995

I would say that every guitar solo by David Gilmour is awesome.

It is definitely his work which has made me such a Pink Floyd fan.

David Gilmour is GOD!

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  Smile

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...........
