I got to say...one of my favorites of his is Octupus's Garden. That is an unbelievably melodic solo.

I also like the slide in Isn't it a Pity. Just beautiful.

You mentioned two great ones!

'Till There Was You is a really good early one of his.

On his last album, Brainwashed, there's an instrumental which I can't remember the name of, but it's a hauntingly beautiful piece of music.

They're not so much solos, as fills, but he peppers the coolest lines all over Abbey Road- one of my favorites is on the Medley, where Golden Slumbers transitions into Carry That Weight over the You Never Give Me Your Money refrain. Absolutely breathtaking, and it gives me chills everytime.

Drive My Car has some of the best lead playing and signature riff creation he ever did. He was primed in the era.

You can't miss - And Your Bird Can Sing.

I'm Down is one of the raunchiest - in a very good way.

Roll Over Beethoven rocked the most (but arguably derivative of Chuck Berry)

A Hard Days Night was short but so perfect for the song.

My Sweet Lord is one of the most definitive "Harrison Lead Sound" solos with the stress on dripping reverse bends he did better than anyone else.

I really liked his slide work on "Handle Me With Care"

Also "Free As A Bird"

Very, very tasteful

Carry on...

Absolutely! I've loved that fill since I first heard it.

In my mind 2:57 (or the fill that leads to the orchestrated outro) of Strawberry Fields has always been the benchmark example of what the electric guitar is capable of bringing to music in the form of creating the vibe, emotion, and dynamics that can propel a song into greatness.

As well as all those previously mentioned here, "'Til There Was You" always grabs my ear.
