Which songs' solos do you like the most? Mines would be... in no particular order:

Velvet Revolver - Dirty little thing
COB - Kissing the shadows
Metallica - Fade to Black
Guns n' Roses - Don't damn me
DT - The glass prison
Rush - YYZ

.. And the list goes on. That was just to start the thread

I wonder - Mahavishnu Orchestra

I will insist n insist n insist that this IS the best solo in the world. Its shows a lot of talent. LOTS of it. I cant get over this man. Those guys are unreal.

NOTE: The solo has gt little to do with technique, incase thts ur definition of a gud solo. The solo is pure music talent. Not cacophony techniques.
