We love that so many guitarists visit UG every day to pick up tabs and improve their skills.
In fact, so many of you have experience exploring our archive that we bet you have a comprehensive grasp on what's out there.
This week we're hoping you can use that experience to answer this question:
What is the best guitar solo of all time?
It's a pretty subjective question - what does 'best' mean, after all?
Let it be open to interpretation. Maybe you'll consider a solo's technical ability, its cultural impact, or that it crams a trucklaod of soul into a single bar.
Whichever way you spin it, post your nominations in the comments and be sure to upvote each other. Better yet, if you can find YouTube links to your favorite solos, paste the link and it'll embed for everyone to hear on this page.
Feel free to pick solos from live performances too, but if you pick songs that have been formally released on record there's a better chance we have the tab for it. Then we can refer readers to the tab so they can learn for themselves when we post the results on Friday.
Think you know what the best solo of all time is? Dive into the comments and add your suggestions. Thanks!
