He does great on that, but he plays a solo that brought me to tears in The Song Remains the Same live version once.... I swear, that's no lie. I have been brought to tears by that guitar solo before. It's a thing of perfection, and I always tell people who down on Jimmy Page and say that he's sloppy to listen to that solo. Not only is it not sloppy, it's one of the best solos he ever laid down.

That solo really is, from heaven. It's amazing.

goly is he fingerpicking that solo like a bass, i cant tell?

No, most of the shots where you see the instrument are of Jack Bruce (the bassist). Clapton is playing with a pick (as he usually does).

well that is definately the #1 live bass solo, Working Man by Rush probably up there to with the bass soloes as well, excellent live guitar solo as well

The first solo I can remember that really impressed me when I was first starting to listen to this genre of music was Mick Taylor's solo in Sympathy for the Devil on Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out. It's still one of my favorite solos and by far my favorite version of Sympathy out there.

No mention of Comfortably Numb, ala PULSE? For shame


Though Crossroads and Stairway to Heaven are both amazingly awesome also

The PULSE version of Comfortably Numb really isn't anything special... The studio one IMHO is better.

When I heard Since I've Been Loving You on TSRTS i was stunned. That song/solo changed my guitar playing single-handedly.

But i agree with Crossroads

Well this was a post about uber live solos... and IMHO, the PF Comfortably Numb at earls court 1994 is magnificent. If you were there im sure you would flew away with the pigs ^^.

Stairway is nice, and ofc Freebird..
#19
Well, I thought that the studio version was better. I didn't really like the PULSE version because of the vocal thing that they did during the verse, and the solo wasn't anything to write home about. Gilmour has had better solos to me.

I give em' credit for how they sound, not for the light show that's given with them Otherwise, Floyd would own everyone at solos

The last couple of minutes are PURE perfection and that one lick he plays after 8:35 is one of those that have gotten me almost bursting into tears... Mark's tone is so simple but amazing

I think i'm gonna have to agree. The solo is nothin special at all.. Special is Page on the Zep DVD's, or Clapton tearining it up on his Les Paul/SG.

Is that Keith on the first solo? 'Cause I'm listening, thinking, "What's BD going on about, it's not THAT great." Then I hear these smooth arpeggios come out of the left channel, and I think, "Ah HA". Mick's soloing is pretty enjoyable on that.

ya i'm a boc fan and last days of may from on your feet or on your knees is good
i have seen these guys off and on the last 30 yrs (wow) and the song has evolved from about 5 min on the on your feet album to about a 20 min jam. alan lanier does about a 6-7 min solo that is just plain good and then buck dharma takes over for another 7-8 mins of just the best guitar work i have ever seen live. i am trying to find a more recent live recording of this song that has this in it. anyone know where to find something like that?

No way. The solos in Dazed and Confused from Madison Square are also much better than those earlier shows. The cool thing about their early shows is the fact that you're seeing a band in their infancy, just coming on to the seen, with all of this power and potential. That's the cool thing about early Zeppelin performances.

How Many More Times from the RAH concert on Disc 1 of Led Zeppelin. When he goes into chilldown mode and lays down those sweet major blues runs it is unbelievable. He's in a total trance.

in my mind, the no doubt greatest live solo is jimi hendrix's star spangled banner, insane sounds i hav never herd anywhere els, and extremely original. Plus in the time period he was insane compared to tons of other guitarists.
