      Some of my favourite solos are mainly from Metallica. Nothing Else Matters has a simple yet amazing solo. Also Megadeth's How the Story Ends solo is freaking amazing.

      Haha was thinking I should come back here and start a thread like this the other day after listing to some SIN.

      I have heaps, but was just loving the solos of Zakk in

      S.I.N - No More Tears (all the solos in this song are great)

      I agree with most of the above also.

      It's not 10 but I love hearing Jerry's solo on Stella Blue - - with the build up and the haunting feedback, who says you need blinding speed to captivate.
