Default Re: Top 10 Guitar Solos

Some of my faves:

Because We've Ended As Lovers - Jeff Beck (From Blow By Blow). This is my fave - daylight second, tho Goodbye Pork Pie Hat from Wired is amazing too)

Since I've Been Loving You - Jimmy Page (Zep) ... also Stairway

Killer Queen - Brian May (Queen)

Another Brick in the Wall - David Gilmour (Floyd - I could easily include half a dozen of his solos)

The Thrill Is Gone - BB King

Show Biz Kids - Rick Derringer (Steely Dan)

Sister Morphine - Ry Cooder (The Stones)

Smoke on the Water - Ritche (Purple)

All Along the Watchtower - Jimi

Intro / Sweet Jane - Steve Hunter (Lou Reed's Rock'n'Roll Animal)

Batuka - Uncle Carlos (from Santana 3)

Son of Orange County - Uncle Frank (from Roxy and Elsewhere)

Om Nama Shivaya - Steve Hillage (from the album "L")

Couldn't Stand the Weather - Stevie Ray

White Room - EC is God

Ok, it's more than ten ... but there's been a lot of good uns! I didn't include the other 1000 or so gems to be found on various Steely Dan (how about Larry Carlton on Kid Charlemaine?), Beck, Queen, Purple, Zep, Floyd and BB King albums.
