I couldn't find anything like this in the searchbar.

I think the greatest slow solo ever made is the solo in Floods by Pantera. If you haven't heard it, listen to it now!

Behold...the Arctopus are obviously music. I don't see how anyone could say they're not music compared to many modern and post-modern composers. That being said, I think B...tA are terrible.

True clapton has the nickname slow hand but if you've ever listened to the solo on time by pink floyd you would realize that david gilmour is the best at the slow solo.
And i would like to metion a few other gilmour solo's comfortably numb, welcome to the machine. All great solo's.

James doesn't do many solos but the ones he does are almost always good.

I don't know what is worse, people picking "slow solos" or "fast solos".

Slow as in too slow for the song? Played by an OAP?
