- John
Dansol
Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears, Most of the solo's on the No More Tears album kick ass so check it out !
ZakkWylde
I'll second the "No more tears" solo (zakk fan ofc), i am also a big fan of the children of bodom "guitar vs. keyboard solo" battles and the great metallica solos like "fade to black" or "one"
Pavel
Too many of them to count and i can't even decide which one is the best!

Let's say: Rhapsody - Unholy Warcry and Outworld - City OF The Dead

but there are hundreds more to state here biggrin.gif

Maybe a bit different - Carlos Rios on 'Brother to Brother'. Favourite player and rather different - Allan Holdsworth.

Gen
This is a really hard question...but i would say:
Technical difficulties solo by racer x
The curse of the castle dragon solo by Paul Gilbert
Old love solo by eric clapton
learning to live solo by dream theater
and many other solos made by awesome bands (Maiden,Guns and roses, TOTO etc...)
Sergeant_Ant
anybody like bad horsie by steve vai? biggrin.gif i cant find any good tabs and my versions a lil off
GodofFire16
My all-time favorite would have to be the solo in Second Heartbeat by Avenged Sevenfold, its the reason I started practicing seriously. Some others would be Needled 24/7 and Sixpounder by Children of Bodom, Six by All that Remains, and Cry For Eternity by Dragonforce cool.gif
VinceG
Well its a hard question but the solo Lonely in the Night by Eric Johnson comes close to beeing branded favorite.
Hungus
I really couldnt say what my my favourite solo was but Mikael Ã…kerfeldt is easily my favourite guitarist because Opeth rocks my world.
Batista
I think many of the solos that John Norum in Europe plays are awesome, but except from that i have three solos I think is better than all others:

Scary Kids Scary Kids - Losing My Religion
Metallica - Nothing Else Matters
Children Of Bodom - Downfall
saa
Aqualung - Jethro Tull
Played by Martin Barre. Still sounds great after all these years. Would make a nice lesson. wink.gif
Rob_g
the only solos i can think of at the moment are anything from Friedman and Alex Skolnick. Lets see

Friedman:
Tornado of souls
holy wars
Lucretia
Hangar 18
Valley of eternity

Alex skolnick
Disciples of the watch
Practice what you preach
Over the wall

And the honourable mensions:
Kirk Hammet: Four Horseman
Zakk Wylde: Mama im comin home, Fire it up
Slash: November rain
Paul Gilbert: technichal Difficulties
The Spartan
this is a tough one...ummm i have so many but i'm gonna say
In Flames - The Hive
In Flames - Satellites And Astronauts
Metallica - one
Metallica - Fade To Black
Dream Theater - Hell's Kitchen
Dream Theater - Home
John Petrucci - Lost Without You
AudunESP
Marus lavendel's solo is amazing! its by far my favourite.
Enter sandman by metalica and seize the day by avenged sevenfold must be my 2nd and 3rd.
Kirk Hammet has for a long time bin my hero.
SEANCD2005
METLLICAS ONE AND FADE TO BLACK, ALSO MOST STUFF BY JIMMI PAGE IS GOOD
Gabriel Leopardi
There are too many solos that I like... at this moment I remember 3... Sweet Child o'mine or Estranged solos (Slash), No more tears (Zakk Wylde), For the love of god (Steve Vai).

Gabriel.-

Another fantastic solo,l one of the best ever for sure (to me)
kethcup
The Sleep - Pantera

Great emotion in that solo!
atomix1337
Some of my favorite solo's

Randy Rhoads : Suicide Solution (live), Mr Crowley, Bark at the Moon

Steve Vai: (the attitude song [whole thing])

John Petrucci: As I am

I can't think of anymore right now but they I'll put them as soon as they come to mind.
Ayen
I'm with GuitarDude and AudunESP on this one, my favorite has to be Lavendell's solo in Winding Roads.
AdamB
the solo from deep purple's child in time has gotta be right up there, the live version is awful but the studio version is epic.
misterj
eric clapton, the 24 nights live album, Old Love. you might be able to play his licks, but playing his licks and playing the way HE plays them is a different story. he has the best vibrato ever!!!
white eagle
I think Stairway to heaven is up there but so is Calos Santanas Europa alot of guitarists to choose from one of my new faves is our very own Gabriel Leopardis maj pentatonic
kyeric
I'm a huge death/thrash/speed/doom metal fan, but whenever this topic comes up anywhere, the first solo that comes to mind for me is:

Comfortably Numb(2nd solo) - David Gilmour(Pink Floyd).
VinceG
Boris- Heavy Friends

Simplistic but psychadelically hypnotic.
