So, what are everyone's favorite guitar solos?

I can't name all of my favorites at the top of my head, but here are some of my favorites:

Laaz Rockit - Curiosity Kills

Soundgarden - Gun

Megadeth - Peace Sells

Pink Floyd - Any Colour You Like

Rush - Freewill

What are your favorites? Smile

I love many different guitar solos, but I'll just name two for right now.

1. Sky is Falling - Queens of the Stone Age
2. One of These Days - Pink Floyd

Awesome solos.

I forgot about One of these Days, that is an awesome solo. Speaking of QOTSA, 3's and 7's has a great guitar solo as well. Smile

uh, I could give two hundred answers on the subject. lol

Well,

I'll talk about 5 songs that I remember now:

The Ballad of Leonard and Charles (Exodus)
Holy Wars (Megadeth)
When The Water Breaks (Liquid Tension Experiment)
Stairway to Heaven (Led Zepellin)
For the Love of God (Steve Vai)

There are many other songs I have a question, but I wanted to highlight these.

I don't have a favorites list but here are a few i can come up with on the spot:

Mr Crowley by Randy Rhoads (really everything on the first two Ozzy albums is kick ass)
Guitars Suck by Bumblefoot (same goes with all his solos really)
anything by Marty Friedman on Rust In Peace and his early solo albums
anything on Jason Becker's Perpetual Burn
Most Symphony X albums
First Boroslav Mitic album (and 2nd)
Early Metallica albums
Steve Howe songs like The Clap, Nature Of The Sea
Paco de Lucia's early flamenco albums in the 70s
early Iron Maiden
and the list really goes on but these are some of my faves from a technical point of view
