So i was sitting outside on my break at work with my ipod and all of the sudden, like a jolt of lightning, this spectacular solo electrified my arm and neck hairs with awesomeness. Anyway, the track title is "Technical Difficulties" By Racer X or (Paul Gilbert). You'll know when the solo begins. Theres a nice build of anticipation before it breaks out. Oh also note the single note picking that quickly speeds up and throws the solo into another direction... Really cool.

Oh, and anyone else have a solo they recommend?

I'm quite partial to the second solo in Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. Relatively simple, but very hard to play just right (imho).

The second solo in Ozzy/Randies Mr Crowley, blows me away every time.

I've got a number of solos that have a profound effect on me.

1. The Eagles - Hotel California.
2. Led Zep - Since I've been loving you
3. Megadeth - Tornado of Souls
4. Marty Friedman - Angel (as played on his "Melodic Control" video)

The Hotel California came out the year I was born, and my aunt used to babysit me as a baby, whe used to play this song over and over as it would calm me down to sleep. Never new what it was called, until I was about 9, and I heard it on the radio, and it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I still maintain that this is the most complete guitar based song ever written. It's practically flawless. Quite obviously a pastiche on Stairway to Heaven, but it wins hands down on every level.

Since I've been loving you for me, Jimmy Page at his best. I was first introduced to this as well when I was really young, and it spoiled a lot of other artists music for me, because they just weren't as good as this.

Tornado of Souls - The solo from this song is the crowning glory on a brilliant album "Rust In Peace". For me, Heavy Metal music peaked with this album, and it's never been the same since !!

Angel - The version from his "Melodic Control" video. This is just spectacular. If you wish to see just about every technique Marty uses, stitched into one solo, this is what you'd end up with. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVdyHs_IX1I

"Get the Funk Out" by Extreme has a great solo by Nuno.
"Push Comes to Shove" Van Halen - this one is not particularly fast but it's incredibly creative.
"News" Dire Straits - again, not fast, but very cool.
"Killer Queen" - Brian May, love the harmony and sound.

..and anything from Al DiMeola. wink.gif

Everytime I hear Brian May's We Will Rock You solo, I get goosebumps. It's amazing.
Also Smoke On The Water, because it is easy to play. biggrin.gif

ANYTHING PAUL GILBERT DOES IS WORTH HEARING.


Thats actually been proven with science and mathemeatics.
Paul + Gilbert + Guitar + S + O + L + O = Magnificence / Superb / Godly

Anyway, another good solo would be htis one, one of the best Ever in my oppinion, Techincal and fast, yet Melodic with feeling. All Hail Muhammad Suicmez.....

Indeed, he's godlike, or something like that at least.

Otherwise, it's really hard to Decide, but I gotta say:

Opeth - A Fair Judgement
Machinae Supremacy - Hero
The Crown - Burning Leather (It's a cover, but I don't know what band made the original song, but it rocks anyway, so incredibly intense and just awsome)

Any opeth solo would fit into my little list though, mikael åkerfeldt and peter lindgren are gods.

my favorite solo ever would have to be both of the bark at the moon solos.

Bark at the moon by Ozzy Osbourne


The first solo is my favorite-although the ending one is faster.Enjoy! biggrin.gif

P.S.--video is REALLY DUMB, but song is great

I checked out this video and YES, it is spectacular! Theres something about the melody he pulls off that suits my style perfectly. I could probably go into detail but that doesnt matter, its just an awesome solo. He seems to cover a lot of the fretboard and spends equal time on the highs and lows. really cool
