What's the best guitar solo you have ever heard?
« on: May 20, 2018, 15:35:24 »
I am hesitant between November Rain's guitar solo (from 04:00)



or Comfortably Numb's solo (from 02:30)



both give me the chills...

I think it's difficult to say which is "THE best", people have different tastes and there are many guitarists out there whose "technique" is perfect - in the end, it's not just about musical ability, but for the listener also about "feeling".
Which is why, at the moment, my favourite guitar solo is this (by Captain Sensible, at the end of the song, so don't turn it off mid-way through!), as I heard this one live last week (yeah I had tears in my eyes):
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

I totally agree with you Ulrich , sometimes it's feel rather than technique. 

I love the feel of this very simple and raw solo

But then also love David Gilmour and would find it hard to choose just 1 track.

My favourite one is at the end from Starship Trooper - The Yes Album.

Yes it is hard to choose one but I always love to listen this one from Prince

From his latest offering, I would say the solo on "In Any Tongue" is very good (but then again, the whole song reminds me a little bit of "Comfortably Numb").
