Best guitarsolo you have heard??

What is the best guitarsolo you have heard??

Very hard question I know there are so many:

Claptons solo on While My Guitar Gently Weeps from Concert for George is one the best.

Jimmy Paige on just about any live Zep record. The guy was amazing. Rhythm and lead at the same time? Must have been good drugs. :?

I can see that this thread will require many future revisits!!! :shock:

.....WAD, definitely Clapton on While My Guitar.....and twue, Page has a whole catalogue of bang-on lead breaks, the dude made the effort and nearly always got the inspiration....same with Duane Allman and Dickie Betts...

also Hendrix on All Along The Watchtower
Carlos Santana on Stone Flower
Grant Geissman on Feels So Good
Kid Ramos on The Hustle
Stevie Ray Vaughan on Telephone Song
Terry Kath on 25 or 6 to 4, though I think I'm probably burnt out on it!
Elliot Randall on Reelin' In The Years
Johnny Winter on Be Careful With A Fool

...and an equal number more that I'll remember later! :?

Great call "Sir" Dingle on Terry Kath. Have you heard the live version of 25 or 6 to 4? Carnegie Hall 1972 - smokes! He could be the most under-rated of the greats, it's a shame most people didn't listen to Chicago when he was alive back in the day, (Chicago1,2,3 and Live at Carnegie Hall they were titans. Sad to see where they've fallen.

WAD, that they were, Pape', must-haves for me, and I-have, lol. Yeah, the live version is great, but live or studio, Kath delivered. He was such an essential to their sound, that without him, it just ain't Chicago. :(

...erm, oh yeah, I should perhaps make something clear---

Kid Ramos played guitar with The Fabulous Thunderbirds on the old T-Bone Walker song The Hustle,--- not to be confused with that sappy-ass disco stinker of the same name. :x

Kid takes off and don't let up!!! :shock:
