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

When The Water Breaks (Liquid Tension Experiment)

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

Hell yeah, Adrian was on top of his game on that album. Stranger in a Strange Land might be my favourite solo ever, and Wasted Years is also great. Too bad he doesn't tend to play it all the way to the end live. Other favourites are the Pulse version of Floyd's Comfortably Numb and something that nobody else has ever mentioned, In Flames's Satellites and Astronauts.

How could i forget Steve Vai. Yankee Rose and Shyboy from David Lee Roths first album and his amazing Passion and Warfare album. And Dimebag from first couple Pantera albums was incredible as well

Nah! Cool

Well the entire song is pretty much Van Halen just shredding the guitar, so I guess the entire song is  a solo. LOL

Oh yeah, How could i forget "Eruption" Deep Purple had great solos too. "Highway Star" is probably one of the earliest shredding. Too many to count!

There's also sort of a watered down (but still entertaining) version of Eruption on VH III called 'Primary'. Just more Eddie Shreddie Cool

Eloy's guitar solos on 'Floating' are simply sublime, no wonder it's my favorite album of theirs. Big smile

Also recently remembered the solo in Lacuna Coil's 'Zombies', love how it plays over the crunching guitar.
