Most impressive guitar solos

#1 Post by theollieb » Mon Sep 17, 2007 1:59 pm

Post the most impressive guitar solo you've heard here. I'd say mine's Speeding by Mr. Steve Vai. If you've heard it, you can see why.

Jeniffer Batten is a bit scary..

The mid section in Ftlog is awesome, Steve looks like hes passing a melon from his ass when he plays it, you know its hard just but the look on his face

Frank Zappa's solo in "Yo Mama" on the Sheik Yerbouti album. It takes you on a journey.

Dave Baksh on Sum 41's In too deep, http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=QhRSyZmKvPI it's short n sweet (01:56 - 02:06) fits the song and is unexpected on a "Pop Punk" track, who needs 5 minutes of shred?

I like most solos by Nuno Bettencourt. Especially "Get the funk out", "money", "It´s a monster", "Play with me" and "Pornograffiti". Paul Gilbert also has some sweet ass solos like Viking kong, Superheroes, Scit skat wah, Street lethal, Daddy brother lover little boy(the electric drill song)..

Michael Romeo´s last solos in The Odyssey always give me the chills.

Marty Friedmans solo in Tornado of souls and the stuff he did in Cacophony with Becker (Speed metal symphony, Concerto, The Ninja)... *drools*

Dimebags solos in Floods, Walk and Mouth for war..

Jason Becker played a wicked version of When You Wish Upon a Star on his Raspberry Jams CD.
