Best Guitar Solo Ever - #54th edition

It's kinda fun to hear what people deem as the best guitar solo ever.

I know there are some old threads here, on the subject,...and I think we might be up at the #54th edition by now, or something...

Well anyway, when one says that; "this must be the best guitar solo ever", someone else always chip in with some other suggestions you wouldn't  even had imagined.....and perhaps those solos change change your mind...

I cant say that I have heard them all. But I have heard many guitar solos...and out of those, these 3 ar my suggestions;

 

These are not just good,...they are transcendental .....well, according to me...B)

 

Pink Floyd (Pulse Tour)

 

 

Gary Moore - Empty Room  (The Globe Stockholm 1987 )

 

 

Marillion - Kayleigh (1985)

 

So.., I know "my" best solos, but what are yours?

Maybe not the best ever, but certainly one of my favorites :

Paul McCartney & Wings  -  Maybe I'm Amazed

A few more that ranks very high on the list are,

Dire Straits - Sultans Of Swing (Alchemy Live)

 

Eagles - Hotel California (Live 1977)

 

Ozzy Osbourne - Crazy Train (Randy Rhoads)

 

another Ozzy song, but with Jake E Lee. There is a two-part of this solo.

The one that start right here, and then the second part that continues at 3:54

Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon (Jake E Lee)

 

Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine (also a two-part solo)

 

Eric Clapton - Layla

Yeah, I were actually at that particular show, which he was recording for a live album/video.

He had amazing sound, which is not usually the case in that arena for most other bands. Since it's a giant globe it's pretty hard to get a decent sound in there.

And when he played this solo, from Empty Rooms, you could almost hear a pin drop in there. Pretty much everyone stood silent and just listened to it...immersed and mesmerized by it.

This is also one of my favorite solos - by Scott Gorham from Thin Lizzy.

The latter part of the solo - with its separated rhythm and loop, that speeds up and slows down - is pretty hard to do - and it is just awesome. The harmony-melody is like flowing mercury.

One thing about it, that I don't like, is the production-mixing of the solo. The treble is too high pitched, and the higher notes of the solo gets "shrieky".

Thin Lizzy -  Romeo and the Lonely Girl
