Freebird. I used to listen to the live version on loop. Loved it.
If i had to pick a second though, I may need to say "One" by Metallica has a pretty epic solo. I like the solo from one cuz it's easy to follow, and the fast pace tapping is interesting. I'm currently learning it myself.

Freebird's solo includes 3 guitars. Need I say more?

For me it's a tie between Hotel California by the Eagles and Heartbreaker by Led Zeppelin.

Tough choice, but one of my favorites is the one in Veteran of the Psychic Wars by Blue Öyster Cult, the extended version from Extraterrestrial Live. So much emotion and passion in that one.

Comfortably Numb. I could listen to it over and over and never get tired of it.

Also, I know a lot of people on here think Slash is overrated, and maybe he is, but November Rain has a great solo.

This blows my mind, had this version on a cassette tape of my dads and was one of my biggest inspirations to play.

The best solo is the intro of sweet Child O Mine by Guns N' Roses

Lights Out, on the UFO live album Strangers in the Night. Micheal Schenker was simply awesome on that song.

This is a tough one. It's hard to pick just one, but I have to say that "Mr.Scary" by Dokken is pretty epic. Guitarist: George Lynch

For all of you that said it's tough...it is tough. While hard to say it's my favorite I've always had a great appreciation for the Jimmy Page solo on Stairway to Heaven but I can easily say the same for the Joe Walsh/Don Felder harmony solo from Hotel California. Boy, and there are others among my favorites as well.

If you like Zappa, Watermelon in Easter Hay is probably my favorite from him (album version--some of the live versions are a bit different).

Too many to list really, just to name a few that popped in:

Big Log - Robert Plant, stratocaster intro by Robbie Blunt
Comfortably Numb of course
You and Your Friend - Dire Straits, whole song is pretty much a guitar solo
Sun Goes Down - Thin Lizzy (Either John Sykes or Scott Gorham plays it)
Fates Warning - Iron Maiden intro solo (Not sure which one plays it..Murray? Very legato and smooth)
Whitesnake - Is This Love (John Sykes I believe is playing with the big wide vibrato)
For the Love of God - Steve Vai, just the melodic parts, not so much the sound effect, whammy bar crazyness.

Led Zep fan, 6-String Madman and others mentioned "Freebird" which is high on my list of favorites as well but it was never done live the way it was recorded on the Skynyrd album. The studio version was actually done with three different guitars. Allen Collins did the lead part on a Gibson Explorer while Gary Rossington played rhythm on his Les Paul then filled the slide part on his SG. Radio play was usually some butchered up cut version since it was so long. Too bad they didn't realize they were playing what some would come to call one of the greatest guitar solos in the history of rock!
