the short little solo in Paradise City (GNR) at the beginning, and if you're up for it the longer solo. I'm not really sure how many solos there are in that song
#6
Fade to Black Intro and i suppose the main solo.
The intro is good to get you started solo as i have found, then you can move onto greater things,

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

any Metallica, Iron Maiden, Van Halen, Pantera, Megadeth, or Slayer. although almost all of the solos by any of them are very difficult

Bollocks are they, Metallica solo's are easy, especially after you nail one or two, Iron Maiden stuff is not overly difficult, Van Halen is the sam but with lots of tapping and harmonics, a lot of Pantera solo's are difficult but not impossible and Megadeth is the same.

There's no point in learning Slayer solo's, as opposed to the basic form of them and making it up.

Besides which, there's little point learning solo's if you can't play the whole song as if you just start playing them live; sans song, someone is going to get up and kick you in the teeth.

Must know solos...

Stairway
Crazy Train
Comfortably Numb

None of these are extreme but when you try to get the sound and feel just right you'll see they're pretty demanding.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Audioslave - Show Me How To Live
Tool - Jambi

Quote by edg
I don't get these lists. To me, "must know" depends on the music you like and
what you want to play. So far I'd put just about everything listed on my "don't
care to know" list. I've been playing a long time now, so I don't think they're very
"must know" at all.

So what exactly to you is must know?
Jazz?
Blues?

None really. For technique, specific exerices that focus on a technique work better
than learning a song. Since I mostly just improvise, I can play along to pretty much
any rock song. That's what I like to do. I just want to get better at it.
#24
No one has mentioned:

Time - Pink Floyd

Isn't that one of the awesom-est solos ever?!? Maybe it's just me...
#25
Most demanding:
Stairway
Crazy Train
Paradise City (or Sweet Child)
Master of Puppets

i could go on, but i just feel lazy.

i agree with 'time'--although i think alot of the awesomeness is also the lyrics and the rest of the song too.
#28
While a agree in part with edg, I'm not certain that isn't elitist thinking. There's nothing wrong with learning the classic solos and gaining an appreciation for what it takes to get them to sound right. Simply knowing notes isn't the same as getting the right sound and feel as the original.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

I think some of the guys on here are taking these threads too seriously. Really, its just a bunch of dumbass' (me included) talking about stuff like we normally would if we were in the same room with one another and are into the same stuff.
Like, "Hey, whats your favorite song?" or "Oh you like Audioslave? Whats your favorite solo?".
I'm not so sure every new thread in the forums has to be so mind boggling that you need to think about your response for 3 hours.

By the way, whats your favorite guitarist...
