Jeez five pages in and no love for Magic Bus off Live At Leeds?
For heavy and good pick slides use Dunlop Ultex.
Foreigner's Love On The Telephone has a good one.
Most creative use of a Pick scratch ever
Gotta be Uncle Ted's example from Stranglehold.
I once read Tom Morello used an allen wrench on People of the Sun. That would qualify as short pick slides.
Always loved that tone. According to Steve Jones, it was not a Marshall but a Silverface Fender Twin loaded with Gauss speakers run wide open. I have a hard time believing he didn't use some sort of pedal with it. I've cranked many a silverface and have never been able to get that sound.
This! Always loved Tom Scholz's pickscrapes.
I love Ed's but they are not hard to cop.
Scholz, on the other hand, is virtually impossible to emulate.
Randy Rhoads when he comes in on Crazy Train is still goosebumps.
Honorable mention to Lifeson for little short ones as part of phrases-The solo in "A Farewell To Kings" and the middle break in "Hemispheres" are great examples.
Maybe not the best but the first one I thought of...
None better than Eddie.
Gotta go with Stranglehold as my #1
Anything by Boston
Randy Rhoads on Crazy Train
EVH is pretty epic too
Stranglehold was the first thing that came to my mind, but the mention of Boston and EVH make it a tough call. All are great.
With regards to Gibbons and Gimme all Your Lovin', I never thought (and still don't) that was a pick slide. I think that is a quick slide down with the fret hand. SRV did it a lot. EVH does it at the end of the solo oon "Beat It". I could be wrong, but I don't think that is a pick slide.
I think Highway To Hell is my favorite. It's that stop they do.
Keep on Loving You solo - Richrath [don't think it's been mentioned]
Greasy as hell. I agree. my top.
Also Shot Down in Flames ACDC is great.
