Default Top 10 Guitar Solos

A guitar solo can be a moment of musical awesomeness. When it's done well, it can send chills down your spine. Here's a list of some of my favorite guitar solos, in no particular order. Some are examples of mastery on the instrument, others are noteworthy because they are unique, and some are great because they fit the song perfectly, but most encompass all of these qualities.

My Sharona - Berton Averre - The Knack (Rocks until tomorrow and back.)
Bulls on Parade - Tom Morello - Rage Against the Machine (Very cool and unique solo.)
Cherub Rock - Billy Corgan - Smashing Pumpkins (Perfection.)
Little Wing - Hendrix (About as good as it gets.)
Love Removal Machine - Billy Duffy - The Cult (It just plain rocks.)
Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour - Floyd (Spine tingling.)
Easy - Thomas McClary - The Commodores (Simple, but so effective.)
Ice Cream Man - Eddie Van Halen (Pure fun.)
Sweet Child O Mine - Slash - GnR (Just excellent.)
Viorar Vel Til Loftarasa - Jón “Jónsi” Ţór Birgisson - Sigur Rós (Awe inspiring crescendo.)
