The Perfect Guitar Solo

#1 Post by Real_Confusions » Mon Aug 15, 2005 8:03 pm

If you could play one guitar solo (not song) perfectly, what would it be?

Mine would be the solo to "The Audience is Listening."

for non improvised solo Call it Sleep (yeah!).. or almost any 7th song (or non 7th song like blue powder.. feathers...)... i cant believe the satriani disc "Crystal Planet" either... its really perfect... almost each song its unique and totally developed in all senses...

and for improvised solo (or so it seems..) i'm a lot in love lately with the "Only Yesterday" from Larry Carlton/Lukather - No substitutions disc... its sublime... awesome....

Highway Star - DP/Ritchie Blackmore... Probably my fav guitar solo of all time... Beautiful neoclassical elements on it.

I wish I could play Secret Player from Satch, totally awesome solo. I like playing Blue Powder that is a favorite of mine. I would say Tender Surrender to, I wish I could play it perfectly.

Nice. I actually learned a lot of that once.
