so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
I'm not much of a guitar solo guy, but man, Eddie Hazel's work on Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain" is just sheer awesomeness.
What are your favorites?
...and by that, I mean helter-skelter, willy-nilly and putt-putt!

"Built flat, wide, and low to the ground, the American badger (Taxidea taxus) has incredibly loose-fitting skin with a thick layer of fat under it. This skin helps the badger slip and slide in underground tunnels."
Great song and many great solos in that one.

Agreed. I would have seconded up until I saw this last year....
Tom Morello's second solo in the duet with Bruce Springsteen of the Ghost of Tom Joad at the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame Anniversary concert last year. Here's the link. I strongly encourage guitar enthusiasts to watch.
Awesome, thanks for posting. I am also partial to Mike McCready's solo in the Live on Two Legs version of "Black." It fucking wails. I listen to it when I go running, and it's awesome. I've been a fan since it came out 13 years ago; used to listen to it on the way to high school. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR-mxsbWbaE It starts to get good around 3:20 (so you can hear the lead-in to it). It really starts to jam about 4:30
Also, for some acouistic Morello that really shows how he isn'r just a master of effects and is technically awesome (as if you needed proof), check this out- him and Dave Matthews; had to be split into two youtube clips. Here's the first one (he really kills it on his guitar solo; I actually like this song a lot) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk49VDPKSLA
Dickie Betts on "Blue Sky"
In this world there are opinions that exist and then there is truth. My opinions happen to be true.
Not a solo but this is just crazy....

sorry guys i am new.. the embed didn't work for me.. neg bomb away
Not sure why you were negged. That was bad ass.
Co-signed on Maggot Brain, great stuff
Don't know that anything beats Eddie Hazel on Maggot Brain.
Sadly never saw him live. By the time I got turned on to P-Funk in the early 1990s he had just died. Maggot Brain was played at his funeral.
I've seen P-Funk live at least once annually since 1992, except for 3 years. I can attest that Michael Hampton still plays a mean version of Maggot Brain.
I do love me some Jimi Hendrix, as well.
That's really tremendous. Thanks for sharing. There are a lot of great ones on this list. I play guitar (poorly), and this thread is outstanding. Props to the OP as well. So much good stuff on here.

Anything Hendrix really
love me some Jimi.
He kills it.
If you haven't heard the alternate recording of Bold as Love, then I suggest you check it out. 7 minutes of pure awesome. I tried to find it on youtube, but no such luck. It can be found on The Jimi Hendrix Experience Box Set.
Bold as Love has my vote
There is a great CID of Clapton doing I Shot the Sherriff on YouTube, I'll try to link later
As others have said Tom Morello is a genius and Slash has many great riffs too.
I really love Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin. He's obviously a legend, probably my favorite guitarist of all time. I'm also a big fan of Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits, Sultans of Swing is a great song for guitar. I don't know the list goes on. Clapton, Hendrix, Yngwie Malmsteem. Most of the people I love are pretty well known, so I don't really have any random people that you haven't heard of.
Just for the record, I think the greatest guitar solo of all time was Hendrix playing the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock. It's so great because of the situation, the context, and the way he played it. Obviously, Woodstock was a protest to all of the war that was going on, and it wasn't a song that anyone there was really wanting to hear. Also, he incorporates sound effects like bombs dropping and Taps and all that into the song. Just great.
before the heroin completely took over the band. I have some bootleg live recordings from 1969 to 1972/73-ish. His playing is phenomenal and the phrasing is impeccable - the perfect complement to Keef's sledgehammer rhythm playing.
By Jimi when he was fronting Band of Gypsys.
12/31/1969 live at the Fillmore East. Ridiculously good.
First is easily anything by Duane Allman, particularly Mountain Jam, You Don't Love Me, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, Blue Sky live, Going Down Slow...I could go on. But this Derek Trucks solo is the shiz.
"We alway's did feel the same, we just saw it from a different point of view"
Pushing Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman to the top of this thread. How'd you young guys get so smart?
Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam
"If they ever catch me, they can have 'em."
Okay, so I don't post much, as you can tell. But that was awesome! Huge PJ fan and about lost my breakfast watching that clip, love it. Here's my two cents for the solos, give me anything from the Pink Floyd Pulse album, esp Sorrow & Comf Numb. Love the Blue Sky pick and I'll take the SRV Little Wing.
"It's not going in our yard Russ, it's going in our living room."
I know a lot of people don't like them but as far as I'm concerned their first 4 albums are classics.
Favorite metallica solo is one
Favorite overall solo: Jimi Hendrix blues album, B# blues. Check it out if u like jimi or blues music
At least it'd be funny if it were actually called "B# Blues."
I didn't even think about that but that was indeed hilarious.
-fellow music theory nerd
Randy Rhoads- Pretty much every solo but Crazy train and Mr. Crowley in particular.
Dave Murray (Iron Maiden)- Again, pretty much everything but Aces High, Number of the Beast, and Hallowed be thy Name in particular.
And of course, Jimi. (pick your poison)
EDIT: Forgot Vivian Campbell...He did awesome stuff with Dio and Def Leppard- Rainbow in the Dark, Holy Diver, and DL's Photograph stand out.
Call it cheesy if you want but if you are a classic rock fan that is one bad motherfucking ass kickin guitar rock out
That's probably my favorite guitar song on Rock Band 3 and its because of that solo at the end. You truly feel like your jammin out. Even if you are only pressing buttons.
Life comes at you fast. Denard Robinson comes at you faster.
Larry Carlton's solo on Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne" is out of control. Listen to it turned up, on a quality sound system, and with something burning (preferably not your house). The song itself was listed as one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time."
Who has been putting out their Kools on my floor?!?!
+1 to you sir.
far as Hazel's work is concerned Red Hot MaMa is THE best I've heard. Saw these guys last at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Played all night long. Epic/Historical probably the best way I could describe it.
"Runnnn!!! get to da choppa"
This is acoustic, but i have always thought it was badass. You have to watch the whole thing to appreciate it.
No Fly Zone!
it is exceptional guitar playing.
The boo gif is totally unfounded.

I second your statement.
"Þetta Er Ágætis Byrjun" Turtles!!! Formerly Dlash15
I liked this but it would have been for quarters on the sidewalk if it was not on a 12 string.
A few friends and I used to play in Nickel's Arcade to make enough money for a 40 of Mickey's each. Then we'd go play in the arch and annoy people. Very good times!
Needs to work on his technique. Timing's off in a few spots, hits some wrong notes ... sloppy all around. Doesn't pull it together until the fast-tempo bar chords and single note strumming. The beauty of acoustic is that every mistake is laid bare for all to observe. No electronic gimmicks to conceal the slop. Though, to be fair, I would be more forgiving if he didn't come off like a self-absorbed twat in the beginning. If you're going to be arrogant, you'd better damn well be the best!
That's how you play guitar.
But don't be a dick, respect quality musicianship when it is on display.
p.s., Kottke's got a bit of a Lloyd Brady thing going on in this one.
I respect humility and discipline.
And Kottke is fantastic, but I like some of his other tunes better. Fast playing is fun but not necessarily the best test of one's musicianship.
