Hello again.
I don't want to come across as a complete idiot, but I'm looking for a solo that is played on a strat. Just recently bought myself one of these bad boys (Fender Classic Player 50's strat) and I absolutely love the tone! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Or try some Iron Maiden they have great solo's and use stratocasters

Not SSS Strats though

go listen to john mayer, stevie ray vaughan, jimi hendrix, RHCP, etc.
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.

Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing

In fact a few Mark Knopfler songs he uses an SSS Strat.

Hank Marvin also!

Jimi Hendrix, SRV, Eric Clapton, Boston(I think), and a tone of other people.

I do recall scholz using a les paul in most of his performances, although i could be wrong.

Blues improv is the first thing that comes to mind...
Also, "Layla" is always a good one.

Ooooooh, "Lenny," by SRV. With the right amp settings, that song can sound beautiful.

Tom Scholz used a Les Paul pretty much exclusively. Never heard any Boston with single coils.

OP, go learn you some Scott Henderson or Michael Landau. Great Strat tones and sick nasty playing.

Malmsteen. His career is basically one big solo.

A classic (that isn't too hard) would be Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick In The Wall'. Quite iconic and fun to play.

Couldn't agree more with this.

SRV, Cream, DAVID GILMOUR (pink floyd), (hendrix is too obvious)

hate to say it but John Mayer - the trio BAND. JOHN MAYER TRIO. TRIO.

i say it 3 times because teh trio is 2000% different than his pre adolescent girl pop garbage on the radio. striaght blues son.

and john mayer has a pretty standard strat blues tone. try playing "Vultures" (good song) on a les paul. i try. sounds aweful. a strat is 100% different sound.

trust me. generally i dont buy so much into different guitars like that, but its true. fir his fingerpicking style (that song is fingerpicked) blues strat sounds infinitely better

Cream was Gibsons all the way through. Even in Blind Faith and Bonnie & Delaney he was still using humbucker or mini-humbucker equipped guitars.


I can agree with everybody else on the list. Eric Johnson is a little toss up because frankly he uses a lot of different guitars and effects in the studio.
