One of my favorites recently is Liquid Tension Experiment.. i'd describe the guitars in that (at some points) as "unleashed"

Alive, by Pearl Jam

A Fair Judgement, Opeth

aaand... can't remember anymore. went to bed too late last night.

But yeah, anybody got suggestions for some rockin guitar work? I'm pretty open-minded with my music as far as sub-genres and whatnot goes, I just need more badass guitars dagnabit!

Cheers

Another masterful likc by Petrucci (of LTE) is on Dream Theater's "In the Name of God" from their most recent album, it is a duel with the keys about 10 minutes into the song, tuly some of the sickest playing I have heard.

Marty Friedman's solo in Megadeth's "Tornado of Souls" is also a personal favorite, as is the crazy trade-off solo in Judas Priest's "Ram it Down."

If you like blues-rock in the vein of Stevie Ray or Hendrix, check out some of the stuff at GrooveYard Records. There is some real nice players represented there and you can get 4 cds for 50 bucks shipped. Some of my personal favorites are Lance Lopez - Wall of Soul, Craig Ericson Project - Shine, Chris Poland - Return to Metalopolis, Ohm - Ohm. You can sample songs from most of the cds to see it anything appeals to you.

Beck has a nice moment on Moodswings' Moodfood album that has always been a favourite of mine.

Buckethead's Population Override and Electric Tears are very good current favourites (every album of his is different, I recommend starting with the two mentioned before moving on to his more typical rock-fusion type workouts such as the Cobra Strike projects or the damnbient of Death Cube K).

My favorite guitar playing is done by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd durring "Time". I'm also a fan of Jimmy Page's work on "Immagrant Song".

[off topic] This tread got me thinking of specific drum work. I just got The Who's Live at Leeds and Keith Moon in "Happy Jack" is just rediculous.

Favorite solo? Those honors would have to go to Iron Maiden's Afraid to Shoot Strangers. Simply incredible.

I'm sitting here listening to the Moody Blues, especially "Isn't Life Strange" and "I'm Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band". The licks from the lead guitarist are awesome - not in terms of being blown away by the speed-complexity so much as the incredible smoothness and musicality of his work and the degree to which his solos are so perfectly matched to the music underneath. Pure magic! That a group was able to achieve such sonic beauty nearly 40 years ago is amazing!!

Try Derek and the Dominos Jam I and IV. I have not listened to the others but I bet they are equally as good. I believe they are available as part of the Layla Sessions: 20th Anniversary Edition Box Set.

Stephonovich:

I don't have any albums after 7th Son of a 7th Son, Do you recomend Fear of the Dark and No prayer for the Dieing?

As for solos... I definatly get chills from Comfortably Numb, definatly going to one of the first songs I listen to once I get the Er-4s's I've been dieing to get. I start working minimum wage on friday, hopefully I'll have enough saved up by the end of summer.
