    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...



    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound - Unknown


    The problem is Empty People, Not Loaded Guns - Linda Schrock Taylor

    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)

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    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.
