It may surprise you, but my favorite guitar solo of all-time is:

Red Hot Chili Peppers-Californication

It's tasteful, emotional, and perfect.

For solos in general:

Miles Davis-Pharoah's Dance

Bitches Brew probably contains the greatest improvisational music of all-time, every player is on fire.

estranged solos. its just cos i connect with that song on so many levels.

believe it or not....even though estranged ranks sooooo high in my book.....

i can't give much to gnr solo wise

i think it's the fact that there's a guitar solo in every song that kinda kills it for me

but among the list are

wttj(love the bass and 2nd guitar solo)

kohd live 02(the intro if that counts as a solo, connects to me in so many ways)

don't cry (alt lyrics)-the first time i saw this song i thought it was a boring song..... then i downloaded a vid of slash playing the solo live.....loved it ever since,

laughing gas(quiet riot)-really shows where randy rhoads was as an incredble virtuso....he coulda been better than....hendrix even(waits to be slaughtered)

as such i also gotta mention suicide solution-the same solo just at the end of rhoads life....and it's incredible how it matured

just about any solo by queen.....cept maybe the stuff off hot space

hotel california

machine gun(bh and hendrix's)

nottingham lance

freebird(i once made out to a chick for the entire 14 minute live version...only to find out later it was my best friend's girl.....we were ok with it)

while my guitar gently weeps(live only.....ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTE)

white room

the trumpet solo from "mtv get off the air"

everything that comes outta tom morello's guitar

everything by chris cornell

actually...i'm gonna stop here....

i could be here until chinese democracy comes out listing my favorite solos

but i will say this

the little solo after the asshole song before nr on the 02 tour rounds out this shortened list
