What's Your Favourite Guitar Solo?

Recommended Posts

So we've had 'what's your favourite song' thread etc but for the benefit of everyone that has taste what is your all time favourite guitar solo/track?

 

For me it's Jimi Hendrix/StoneFree/Royal Albert Hall. No nonsense, listen to him kick off at 2:24 here: (the drum solo has been edited). This track has blown me away since i heard it 15+ years ago. Chuffin' marvellous. :yes:

Yeah you need to work harder than that, less than 1 minute of the least impressive Gun's and Roses track ever isn't going to cut it on this thread. **** off. At least pick something from Appetite... :yes:

Depends on the criteria for "best" :bye2:

 

There are plenty of really long rambly "guitar *******" type solos, and there are really well thought out and tight "fit the tune" type solo's. It would be too easy to get carried away with the "hendrix did a 3hr solo, setting himself and the rest of the band on fire whist drinking snake ****" type solo's with didn't really do a lot for the songs that spawned them.

 

For pure aesthetics, feeling and originality I'd have to say Clapton, Layla.

What the hell? Welcome back old bean but i never said 'best', just favourite. Sounds like you';ve been promoted to manager or even director? :bye2:

 

If we're going to generalise then Hendrix did many rambling nonsense i agree, but also turned out some master strokes. But i admire your ability to pick a well rehearsed studio track. :good:

Joining in, I'd say you'd be hard pressed to beat one of the all time greats, Sir David Gilmour performing comfortably numb by the Floyd, as in
