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.
I love your list Polyanna; in fact your entire post. A guitar solo that I love is Grant Geissman on Chuck Mangione's " Feels so Good." I know the song isn't everyones cup of tea, but even if it's not, what a guitar solo.
