Interesting is really subjective.

But my favorite chord progression is and will probably always be "Little Wing" by Hendrix. Really beautiful minor bluesish thing going on.

Also check out Blake Mills' "Guitar Moves".

There's a part in the video where he shows some cool Eastern music style stuff w/o the slide.

Make sure you play in the pocket. Don't just randomly diddle around and hope for the best, make sure you're playing in the appropriate space.

On the radio, I haven't heard a guitar solo in a while.

But if you go to concerts and watch live music, guitar solos are everywhere.

I saw Jay-Z and even his guitarist had a few solos.
