Not going to read through this so as not to skew my thoughts, but there are some that immediately come to mind and in no particular order...

 

  • Bark at the Moon (Jake E. Lee, literally the solo that made me want to learn how to play guitar)
  • Superstitious (Kee Marcello from Europe - pretty flaky band but this just a beauty)
  • Hotel California (perfect, absolutely perfect)
  • Summer Song (Joe Satriani; yes, it's an instrumental, but Joe plays melody lines rather than vocals and then sticks a solo in there and this one always makes me smile and make guitar faces)
  • For The Love of God (Steve Vai, even better when you know the story behind it)
  • Another Brick in the Wall (again, perfect, absolutely perfect)
  • Comfortably Numb (Gilmour's hands are magical)
  • Hot For Teacher (has everything that made EVH great)
  • Lay It Down (Warren De Martini, Ratt)
  • Under a Glass Moon, Scarred, Metropolis, Another Day and so forth (John Petrucci, Dream Theater - I'm heavily biased here)

 

As soon as I click Submit on this post I'll think of a dozen more.  And I also know I want to go pour through songs now.

Some of my favorites:

 

1. Deep Purple - The Mule (from Fireball)

2. Deep Purple - Mistreated (from Burn)

3. Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb 

4. Eric Clapton - Cocaine (Live) from the Ronnie Lane's Appeal to ARMS concert

5. Clapton/Harrison - While My Guitar Gently Weeps (probably all Clapton)

6. Peter Frampton - Do You Feel like We Do (Live)

7. Van Halen - Dance the Night Away/Eruptions/Dancing in the Street

Did you say Blues solos?

 

How about Buddy Guy's "I Smell A Rat" from the album Stone Crazy! (The whole song is full of solos.)

 

 

Buddy goes to the edge and sometimes goes right over it!

Much better example. Now I can listen to your selection specifically. Some of that sounds almost like an electric violin. I wonder what technique Gilmore was using? Is it possible he may have used a bow on the guitar strings or a guitar accessory called an Ebow?

Honestly I think it's just more likely that Gilmour is AN AMAZING FRICKIN GUITAR PLAYER cool.gif

 

Listen to Time's solo as well (I updated the OP with the times, but it's basically 3:00 to 5:00) he also hits those crazy high notes in that song.

I feel like Stairway to Heaven is just famous for being famous. Yeah it's a really cool song, but amongst all the other Prog and Metal and Rock genre "epic"-style songs, this is one of literally thousands, and certainly not the best. By the time I'd heard this song, I'd been listening to progressive metal bands for a few years, and this song is "meh" compared to them.

 

Bands like Dream Theater for example have put out songs that I think are similar in type, if Stairway could be considered a particular type of song, but superior musically in every way.

 

I don't mean to rag on you specifically, I just get tired of it getting Best Rock Song Of All TIme and crap every year (e.g. radio stations' listeners votes) when that is clearly 100% false.

 

Okay, finished my rant, sorry. Just to clarify, I do enjoy the song biggrin.gif

I don't think this is completely wrong, I see your point, but I also think that amazing guitar work should stand on its own.

 

For example my top faves of Time and Alive, if I skip to the solo part it takes nothing away from the ear-melty of the experience.

I am with you on Led Zep and Stairway. Very good song but does not stand out in anything at all. I am actually shocked it is ranked #1 in some rock songs lists but I suppose these are subjective.

This P-Funk song is almost one long solo by the one and only Eddie Hazel. Great album to listen to if you like this Beatles cover

 

 

Now from P-Funk to G-Funk, who would you ever think there could be a guitar solo as intense and long as this in a hip hop song and be all original? (just skip to 7:30)
