The guitar solo

"Ah, the bending of notes what a strange and particular pleasure that represents, when a solo electric guitar note slips betwixt and between, into a place that might be musically inexact but is none the less hugely emotionally expressive, carried along on a buzz of sustain, the sound compressed by amplification to the point where it starts to collapse in on itself and attack the ear with a sensation of screaming feedback until, under the nimble fingers of a gifted guitarist, it achieves sonic lift-off and streaks into the musical stratosphere..."

I love the guitar solo. Which guitar solo is your favourite?

Here are a couple of mine:

Guns n'Roses, Sweet Child of Mine, Slash

Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb, David Gilmore

Thanks, Pali Gap is a masterpiece. I have never heard it before.

I have never really understood the popularity of Stevie Ray Vaughn, but now my mind is clearing up. Riviera Paradise is a killer.

I'm partial to melodic leads that build. This intro to Sweet Jane off of Lou Reed's live Rock and Roll Animal - 1974, by guitarists Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner are just I'm talking about. Almost Slash meets Duane Allman and Dickie Betts.

But there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many...

Hendrix...

Jonny Winter...

Alvin Lee...

the "Lead Guitar Solo" WAS the thing in the 60's, 70's and 80's...

Not so much anymore...

It IS making a comeback of sorts...

Warbler nailed it. Best Hear My Train A'Comin ever.

And if you have not heard Johnny Winter do Highway 61 Revisted you are totally missing out.

How about some more Duane and Dickey:

Jonny Winter is a rock'n roll survivor and one of the best of his kind

This is another wellknown tune having a great gitar solo at the end - Led Zeppelin - Stairway to heaven - Jimmy Page. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=w9TGj2jrJk8

Great playing. Where Prince looks like an educated pimp, Alin Lee looks like a no nonsense working class hero.

Yes, the kid has got an unusually well developed sense of melody.

When I tried to open your links my PC was all warnings.
