The guitar solo that lights you up?

Without a doubt...the one solo that blew me away in high school, and I STILL watch it every now and then because (to me) it's just so freakin' awesome:



To me, EVH was never a 'shredder' in the sense of the bajillion bumblebees that came after him. At the same time, 5150 was where some of his soloing started to sound a little repetitive and cliche.

But some of this stuff is killer. Just killer. Even now.

As far as rock solos are concerned, this one always did it for me.


Nothing crazy technically, but something about the phrasing, tone and note choice has always been really exciting to me.
