    Everyone of their songs is like one big solo.

    I love anything from Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin

    Eddie Van Halen solo on Michael Jackson's "Beat It". IMO, few solos condense a player's vocabulary that well.

    Allman Brothers - In Memory of Elizabeth Reed

    Two great lead guitarists, a bassist and a black drummer (you know he's keeping time) who have jazz roots, that does it for me. The other guys are good too, of course.
  12. Domination- PanterA

    The sleep - PanterA

    Wicked F'in solos!

    Jerry Cantrell's solos on the Alice in Chains songs "Love, Hate, Love" and "Dirt" are the first solos that pop to my mind on when it comes to the subject of favourite guitar solos.

    Yeah agree, good solo. I like a lot of Lifeson's but my fave of his has to be 'Limelight' from Moving Pictures.

    +1 on that too.

    Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)
    Power to Love
