    Live version of "No Quarter" by Led Zeppelin for me. And you?

    It’s been Stairway to Heaven since I was 12 years old. To this day, it’s the only solo I know note for note.

    Specifically, I was referring as my favorite as to Jimmy Page's solo in No Quarter in the Song Remains The Same movie. Damn! Musical ****ing genius! Mr. Page!

    It's Love by King's X. Maybe none better IMHO.

    in my 10 favorite solos, 2 of them are by Zakk.(“Miracle Man” and “No More Tears”) He had so much attitude, and a killer tone on those early Ozzy albums.

    Pepe Romero playing Concierto de Aranjuez. Not kidding. :)

    EDIT The reason I like his version so much, compared with those of other top classical players, is that he plays a flamenco guitar, and its hard, bright edge really stands out against the smoother-sounding orchestra.

    I was actually doing the "toss up".
    Miracle Man
    No More tears
    Miracle man
    No More tears

    I just love that raw sound he got on the No Rest for the Wicked album, so MM got the nod.
    That solo is just controlled chaos, it feels like it could go off the tracks at any moment...but doesn't...just barely.

    A little off the beaten track but Robin Trower's solo on "Only Time". It's just few notes but it's transcendent.

    Here are a couple that I like:


    Why this instead of Guthrie Govan's solo on Drive Home? It's great shredding, but this one is more soulful and serves the song better IMO.

    ...also, John Norum solo. This entire song (Shimmering Highs) is a solo



    ...and his tribute to Gary Moore:

    Time - Pink Floyd

    My favourite solo of all time, the notes and the sound in that solo move me deeply. That's also the piece of music that pushed me to move from classical to electric guitar.

    I'm gonna go a little bit off of the beaten track here.

    start it at 3:40, and wait for the solo to kick in... Pretty nice transition I think, and good sounding solo too.
