It's kind of embarrasing. I hear people say "Stairway to Heaven's solo OF COURSE! ANYONE WHO DISAGREES = RETARD!"

But I'll put it in the open and say the solo from Betrayed by Avenged Sevenfold. I heard it, put it on my ipod, wouldn't even listen to the song. I would simply fast forward it to the solo.

i have quite a few, Slash's solo in the live version of Rocket Queen has to be pretty near the top....but i think my fave of all time is Gary Moore in "Still in Love With You" by Thin Lizzy...its amazing

Dragon Force - Through The Fire And Flames, this song is d dogs go-nads, d whole song has solos from start 2 finish, acoustic at the strt, in the verse background. but the post-chorus n bridge solos r amazin hands down!

Zebrahead - Expectaions, not an amazin solo but the way it sounds jus hooks ya on it.

mine is probably that totaly awsomely hard solo in wake me up when september ends, evry time i hear that solo i drool.


If you think that's a solo than your a spankin ding dong. A solo is something like Jimmy Page's Stairway To Heaven or anything Slash touches, not a pissy one note emo solo. YOU HAVE NO BALLS

a huge 5 minute solo is awesome
Finally!
Darn, that has to be the most underrated solo of all time.

Black Sabbath's Warning comes in at a close second and Kenny Wayne Sheppard's Voodoo Chile in third (which I believe is like 9 to 10 minutes long)

I see this alot throughout this thread.

You guys really need to listen to just about any rock band from the 70's and 80's (mainly 80's) or some Hendrix or SRV.

If you think that weak AX7 solo is your favorite you need some more exposure.

many Dream Theater songs. Satch and Vai.

too lazy to list all songs. Ceremony and Crushing Day come to mind by Satch.

Alive, by Pearl Jam, is what first inspired me on the guitar. It still gives me shivers.

Fade to Black has an amazing solo, definitely up there, and Beyond the Realms of Death, the first solo, by Judas Priest is quite amazing. Yngwie, on Black Star, is also worth noting.

emo.child.101

EpiphoneKnight
02-03-2007, 01:51 PM
well most people are gonna say eruption...and half of them probably havent heard it. but mine is probably november rain.

That statement is probably the best way to encompass the entire empitome of truth regarding solos. Perfectly said, sir!!!!

I would say November Rain and also Journey's Who's Crying Now.

UpliftMofo
02-03-2007, 05:29 PM
^ November Rain has a very good solo. Pity about the rest of song :D

Jimi's Star Spangled Banner (yeah, obvious but still amazing) and Eddie Hazel's Maggot Brain are probably two of my favourites. And Kirk Hammet may not be the most original metal soloist but the one in Master Of Puppets is perfect.

:cheers:

He's my favourite guiarist right now. How I wish I could play like him :(

I like the second solo more though. But right now my favourite solo is the one in 'Time'. It's truly amazing. I can't stop listening to it. :down:

Everyone will say either Eruption (FAR too long) or ****ing Freebird so I'll say...Eternal Rest by Avenged Sevenfold (no one can come close to Synyster Gates in the metal department) the extended bit at the end of Can't You Hear Me Knockin' by the Stones where Keef and Mick play off one another aaaaaaannnnnddddddd...anything by Dream Theater. Noice.

thedeucemoose
02-09-2007, 11:51 PM
Floods by Pantera, and Aint Talking Bout Love by Van Halen. The solo in Our Time is Now by Story of the Year is awesome because it sounds like ****ing Top Gun. Another good SOTY solo is Taste the Poison. Fast playing, dive bombs, and tapping all in a span of about 15 seconds. SOTY is underrated because their first album was too mainstream, but their second album is badass.

phillyguitar
03-07-2007, 12:02 PM
I like a lot of solos, Weezer solos are some of my favorites because they remain original despite not having to shred or go nuts with guitar.

My favorite solo of all time I think would be Texas Flood by SRV, man thats amazing.

Lately I like the solo in "Sieze the Day" by Avenged Sevenfold, very Slash inspired and just very melodic and enjoyable to listen, again one of those solos that doesn't need to really shred to be enjoyable.

I've been listening to a lot of thrash lately, so I'll say the solos from "Terror Zone" and "Agents of Brutality" by Kreator, considering I'm listening to the Coma of Souls album right now. Also, someone mentioned Satch above, so I'll say Flying in a Blue Dream. That song speaks to me everytime I hear it. Also have to go with Neil Young's "jam" solos on Down By The River and Cowgirl in The Sand. Both classics.

LuisWahWah

2. willie the pimp - Frank (the ****ing allmighty!) zappa!
3. Hotel california - the eagle's
4. Falling snow - Agalloch (not a solo, but its a melody that plays through the entire song)


and i swear to buddha, if anyone says dragonforce ill rape your family!

04-05-2007, 01:09 PM
The Down Town by Days of the New, Straight Out Of Line by Godsmack and the solo in Sappy by Nirvana is pretty good. Simple but it sounds good. I love all of Jerry Cantrell's stuff though.

metallifan1
04-06-2007, 01:00 AM
The solo on "Into the Pit" is very underrated. Alex Skolnick is a ****ing god and had a lot more technical and catchy solos, but for some reason it sticks out for me.

metallifan1
04-06-2007, 01:04 AM
The Free bird Solo SUCKS. It is a boring, repetitive pentatonic wank. There is nothing special about it, so all you people who worship this ridiculously long solo is a dumbass. How can anyone love a solo that lasts three minutes and only uses pentatonic licks that are played over, and over, and over again. GET OVER THIS BULLSHIT SOLO.

Freebird and Turn it Again (RHCP), you have to give the man some credit, in freebird solo there were like 2 or 3 guitarists (I dont remember the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd), but in turn it again the man did it by himself! playing all the tracks, he'd to have lots of concentration and playing skills.
Also love Wet sand (so awesomely soultouching)

I also can not say these are my favs becuase like so many of you my taste change but i do love these solos and thought they should have some mention.

Deinetly Floods by Pantera. GIves me goosebumps every time I hear it and all of Dime's other solos for that matter. I love the composed-ish part in the beginning and the outro at the end and the middle is ridiculous, especially scince he came up with it when he was 16!!God I miss dime...... :(

05-02-2007, 09:06 AM
Favorite solo?

The only one I can think of now is Eric Clapton's solo from the live preformance of "My Back Pages" in Madison Square Garden for Bob Dylan's 20th anniversary...that's what it says on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bUch5dveX0) at least...

It was great. Made me go all nostalgic. =]

God, this is really hard, there's so many great ones. Maybe Under A Glass Moon by Dream Theater. The Original Fire solo by Audioslave is really funny and i love it, but, i don't know, it's a hard decision.

my favorite solos are free bird, stairway to heaven, which probably aren't surprising.
