    Greatest Guitar or Intrumental Solos of All Time

    Hello all,

    I was looking for a musical solo and came by this this one. MY GOD! So I had to create a thread to put it somehwere where all can see. I am sure you have your favorites. So what are they???

    Damn, if Eddie can play like this now in 2007...he must have been a god in the 80s.

    awesome,

    (Number1)Eddy Van Halen is certainly number one in my book. But one not to forget oh! Plz never forget him he was so superior with his classical approach (Number2)Randy Rhodes...and of course(number3) Zackk Wylde.

    Ozzy had the chance in his career to find very good guitar players who also are very creative, they have write Ozzy career, these two are incredible. Even Jake E Lee derserve to be mention with a killer riff like Bark At the moon.

    I'll mention Dave Murray of Iron Maiden and Kirk Hammet of Metallica and Dave Mustaine of megadeth. Kerry King and Jeff Hannemen are to be mention to...Slayer is among my favorite band. Fact I personnaly like to practice my guitar with some Slayer, it's a very good excercise

    David Gilmour - Confortably Numb (Pink Floyd)

    John Petrucci is my all-time favorite but Yngwie Malmsteen is quite amazing:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aS_IYe5JTZ4

    And for Guitar Hero players, DragonForce "Through the Fire and Flames" is a nightmare (couldn't find the long-length version):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jgrCKhxE1s

    Avenged Sevenfold's Synyster Gates is quite good too:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1KeUCpII5o

    Again for GH players, Eric Johnson's "Cliffs of Dover":
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55nAwmVLQSk

    Deep Purple's "Highway Star" has a pretty solo too:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOEvm1bAQi4

    Ted Nugent's "Stranglehold" is a classic:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7dR8-3Nc0M

    Dimebag Darrell's solo in Pantera's "Floods":
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nx1nuq1Pt4

    Patrick Rondat's Tribute to Vivaldi:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm8c4PAy_9U

    Rocker74, I totally agree with you on Ozzy, damn the guy knows how to be surrounded by talent. I went to see him in january, Zakk Wylde lives and breathes Rock! And Randy Rhoads is a musical genius. Imagine all he could have done had he live longer?

    San Francisco, Warfield Theatre, December 5th, 1980 - Rock/Jazz fusion guitarists Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin join with Spanish guitarist Paco De Lucia. The album from that magic moment: Friday Night in San Francisco (1981)

    Modena (Italy), Parco Novi Sad Auditorium, 1996 - 16 years later, the trio plays once again an Al Di Meola's composition featured on that album: Meditarranean Sundance.

    My two favourites

    1- Yngwie Malmsteen - With the "Trial by fire, live in Lenningrad" concert being the greatest display of rock guitar playing that I have ever seen

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpDbl...eature=related

    2- Dave Murray

    I really liked most of the solos quoted so far!

    Korbel, yes Eddie VH was awesome in the 80's! I have not seen him live since, maybe it had to do with being a teenager also, so anything was just more "fresh" and new and unheard of...

    I thought I would "change beat" a little and include drums!

    Neil Peart, my all time favorite drummer!
