Ok....let's lighten the mood.......I'm sick of politics.......so

You've got your standard technically genius solos like Comfortably Numb, and Stairway to heaven....but what are some of the best solos that no one really ever mentions or plays much.

Here's two I thought of first...

I would have to disagree with the premise that STH is technical genius, but I digress.

I agree with the solo in My Sharona being amongst the better ones.

Even though the movie was kinda scmaltzy, I always liked this pairing of Steve Vai and Ry Cooder

(I still think this is some back handed way to get hai back in to promote some black metal death head shredder as a guitarist)

Mark Knopfler

Too many versions to choose from but I like this one of "Sultans Of Swing"

I prefer the metal bands of the 80's.

GNR November Rain
Mettalica Nothing else matters

Most of the 80's rock ballads have great guitar pieces.

Andy Mckee's "Drifting" is one of the best gems ever on the internet.

Prince did one heck of a job at George Harrison's induction into the hall of fame.
