stairway to heaven.
Not out of time, not awkward note choices. I really like that solo.
Oh Sherri solo is cool too.
I will nominate the EVH solo on "Big Money". The songs us just rocking along, Eddie gives a spirited blues based solo at the start. So you're thinking to yourself that the main solo is just gonna rip.
The song totally breaks down for some noodling, scampering scale work on what sounds like (and I think it is) a Strat straight to the board without just some rever and delay.
There are more I don't like but that has to be the one that was bad and let me down at the same time.
e.c. to the rescue
wow i have a lot of responses in video.....wierd.

He's been quoted to say he leaves the mistakes in there. Page is often a sloppy lead player. IMO his solos fit and just sound right on that edge of insanity.
I remember reading several years ago an interview with Slash on his AFD playing. He stated he couldn't play like that anymore because he plays so much and his technical ability improved so much he can't duplicate the sloppiness in his playing then.
It's kind of a shame in a way. I always liked how out of control his playing was on the album.
That's how I see it. Kerry King was the first I thought of reading through this thread. Slayer writes songs that resemble what is written Revelations, I kinda think his style fits the bill.
Van Halen to me is a totally by feel player and in the decadent 80s, it surely fits the bill.
I couldn't really think of any solos that I hate, but there are probably a few.
Ice Cream Man.
I'm with you. I can't believe that solo made it onto a record, let alone a hit single. Painfully bad.
I too think Reelin is overrated. I love SD but that is not one of my favorites.
Noel Redding's solo on "Little Miss Strange" on Hendrix's Axis Bold As Love has got to rate high on the list of worst solos, especially because in the solo he trades licks with Hendrix. Hendrix's playing and tone is like liquid Orange Sunshine sex while Redding's is the polar opposite, dry and brittle.
Horrible song by the way. The only thing that redeems it is Hendrix's playing, especially on the outro.
I've heard that Noel Redding harbored a grudge about being relegated to playing bass in the Experience and thought that his guitar playing should be featured. If his playing on this cut is any indication of his ability, he must have been severely delusional.
God, anything those guys did early on (that wasn't Wagner & Hunter) was a freakin' embarrasment. Hell, the whole band was a sham, when you think about it.
Although I do appreciate some oddball stuff, that 'solo' is a real head scratcher.
The Firm "Radioactive."
EC was quoting "Blue Moon". In solos, jazzers quote bits and pieces of melodies from other tunes all the time, usually with intended irony.
Wow, I guess I beg to differ: IMHO I think that solo's pretty brilliant! Cool atonality going on there; nothing like Jimmy's done before...
I used to think Beastie Boyz "Fight for your Right" solo was terrible! But then I realized that it was played terribly on purpose, a sort of anti-guitar hero solo. So, now I have to say the solos by CC Devllle of Poison are pretty bad....
