Favorite Guitar Solo Ever?

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by Meganthratalica, Dec 20, 2012.

  1. What is your favorite guitar solo ever written? Can be by any body. It's very hard to name a favorite, but as of know, it's Dimebag's lead in "The Sleep". The way that lead plays over the rhythm section is orgasmic, hahaha. What's yours GC?
  2. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFXvfBL4WkU]John Petrucci - Glasgow Kiss - YouTube[/ame]

    3:30 on, but starting at ~3:57

    not a huge fan of JP and dream theater but the solo in this is straight up lyrical.

    Once again, not a huge vai guy, but that first bridge solo is super musical.

    Guthrie Govan however, his solos rock my ballsack all day
