    The last half of this was probably the first one ever for me and still lights me up almost 4 decades later - I heard it at a pretty early age (7 or 8?) and took up air guitar as a result, followed by real guitar a couple of years later:

    I love pretty much anything by Yngwie. Whilst many only hear the speed of his playing, for me it's all about his phrasing, expression, tone, and delicate touch. Just the first note of the electric solo in this song is enough to make me giddy, then he raises the tension with some faster bits, then he resolves the tension with a delicate little arpeggio thing. One of his shortest solos, but contains so much of what I love about his playing.

    That descending riff at 2:15 always just killed me.

    It can be emotional, tasteful and superfast.

    From the album that inspired me to play guitar. The playing is stellar and Eddie's tone is MASSIVE

    I feel that Dean Ween is second only to Jimi at stepping on a wah.

    Mountain Jam. Allman Bros. From Eat a Peach.. it’s a 20 minute masterpiece. Unfortunately, I listened to this song so much I can play Dickeys and Duanes parts note for note.. and I do my best to be original in my playing both for rhythm and soloing, but that song, forget it.., comes out like the record whether I want to or not....and no, Don’t ask me to start a tribute band:confused::)
