Greatest Guitar Solo?


Recommended Posts

As I am all sure, we have heard our share of guitar solos, but to you, what is the greatest?

Definitely-Free Bird comes to mind as well as Estranged and Stairway

And especially Eddie's "ERUPTION" comes in close, I love that solo but not my greatest.

but no my friends-it would have to be the ending solo on Metallica's JUMP IN THE FIRE on Kill 'Em All

for anyone who has the record, just dig that solo, it is fast as a mother fuck and gets so damn loud, kirk re-did Dave's solo well

But what to you is the greatest guitar solo?

Yeah i agree Freebird is a mind blowing solo, and Eruption is just jaw dropping (im learning that on guitar right now)

But for me hmmmm,

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood, Live at Montreux 1982

Whoa this is the most amazing solo live, i aint seen anything like it, its just wow, im speechless over it, anyone who plays guitar has to buy that DVD

Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple) - Child In Time

Ah yes, Ritchie, the original shredder, and the best in my opinion, Child In Time solo is just amazing, a very epic solo for an epic song. I love it.

Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne) - Mr. Crowley

For some reason even after listerning to Mr Crowley well over 100 times i still get chills listerning to the solos, they are amazing and yet sad because randy didnt live for much longer.

David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) - Comfortably Numb, i prefer his live rendition of this solo

Wow, Comfortably Numb doesn't need any introductions, Gilmour is just a pure genuis, CN solo is just bursting with emotion and passion.

So yeah, those are my 4 favourite solos.

Beatles - Octopus's Garden

WHAT A SOLO. Even though it's short, George does one of his greatest solos.

Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Harrison song. Eric Clapton on lead. The Beatles. Do I need to say any more?

Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven

I think this needs no comment

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb, Time

I cant decide which I like most. CN I think. They're great.

I think that's it.

EDIT: Oh I forgot! The Don't Danm Me Solo! So cool. SCOM also has one of the awesomest ever. And, how could I forget, my favourite solo, the one at the end of Nightrain, which kicks off in the last chorus. I also like the solo on That's What It Takes by George Harrison, man, what a great song!

Eurption still gives me the chills, as dose the oncore in NR. But the best is the one at the end of nightrain, i much prefer Mr.Bucketheads version to Slashs. Please Axl, get Mr.KFC back, he is so fucken class...

SCOM being the first guitar solo I ever heard, I love it.

Eruption is just crazy.

The outro of NR is fucking great.

Free Bird's solo is great too.

I personally feel Stairway is so overrated. It's a great solo, but sooo overrated.
