I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"

Tom Morello's solo in Like A Stone is very nice.

Pink Floyd - Time
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."

Mike Boomfield's solo breaks in Tombstone Blues are pretty legendary.

Great, a thread filled with youtube links and no description whatsoever of what it is.

For electric, I've always loved Allman Bros. solos, especially "Hot Lanta" and "Les Brers In A Minor." Not technically amazing, but Betts has a really unique writing style for his genre.

Other than that, there's this piece called "Nocturno" for classical guitar written by Federico Moreno Torroba, and I've always found it really great. It has a good range of different dynamics and tempo for the player to show off, plus it's fast and very abstract, dissonant and modern in some areas, very slow and spanish in others, and in some places impressionist. Both technically impressive and god for demonstrating musicality. John Williams EASILY has my favorite version of it:

I don't know the specific solo you're talking about but Mike Bloomfield is the shit so I'm inclined to agree with you.

Pretty much every note he plays in the whole song, but specifically the break before the last verse.
