even though the entire song is just one big solo...i'll go with victor wooten- classical thump. not that i'm really a wooten fanboy...it was just the first to come to my mind, and i can't think of a better one.

I've heard a bit of Spastic Inks stuff, they're pretty damn awesome, methinks...I've only heard like two of their real songs though, a while back my friend showed me some website where it showed some scenes from Bambi and the bassist from SI was playing all the notes that Thumper (the rabbit) was talking at (did I explain that well?) and I think the guitarist was doing the skunk...and then I saw this video of the three guys playing a song...(it is 3 guys right?)...Tell me where to find these mp3s...

anyway, heres number 18
Ytse Jam - Dream Theater

<EDIT> Holy crap dude I just heard the "Mosquito Brain Surgery" and holy crabtrees Batman!...that thing was awesome!...orgasmic is a better word to describe it i think...The bass solos, the guitar, and the drums oh my god!...So if any of you guys like bands such as Dream Theater, Symphony X and the like, do yourself a favor and LISTEN TO THIS SONG!

i....i think I creamed myself...

DOUBLE EDIT
It ended too soon though, 8 minutes is not enough...and the ending didnt fit with the rest of the song IMO...

Idea why not try and post a link to the solos and if it's in a song than just play that tidbit of the song with the solo in it.
