Mind-Blowing, MUST LEARN Guitar solos...?
I'm sure this post has been...posted.. many a time.
I want to specify for you guys before you start puting solos out that EVERYONE and their FRIGGIN MOTHERS know.
What is a really good solo?
Edward Vanhalen - Eruption... duh.. gahh..
see what I mean... I mean, dude.. everyone knows that already.
anyway the point of this post.
I would like for you guys to lay out some solos for me.
I want them to be metal solos, not blues..I'm not a blues guy.
LAY EM OUT GUYS!
You're a god among insects, never let anyone tell you different.
Metallica - Fade To Black intro solo..
Jimi Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower.
Behold! The great northern viking's pinnacle of evolution! Behold my wavy blonde locks, my icy blue eyes and my muscular physique! Behold my.. screw this, I'm going to McDonald's.
War Pigs solo- Sabbath
Don't know much metal... but I really like Sabbath. 8)
Stairway to Freebird!
BTW both the solo's in War Pigs.
Stairway to Freebird!
led zeppelin- black dog
the beatles- while my guitar gently weeps
pink floyd- comfortably numb
guns n' roses- sweet child of mine
if i heard anyone play these in front of me, my jaw would literally drop. To me, these represent some of the pinnacles of rock solos and if I could play these, I know I would have accomplioshed something
Well, I guess I'd recommend learning what makes a good solo (ie scales and how to use them) then you can make your own chart toppers! :D
But everyone has to start somewhere, so pretty mch anything by Zep..Hendrix, SRV.... I know I know, not metal, but I'm a blues guy. Zakk Wylde sounds like he's your man. And Randy Rhoads a la Crazy Train. Get some old Sabbath, and Blizzard of Ozz
"Contrary to popular belief, Clapton is NOT God. The prospect that he is God probably had a large hand in driving him to drugs and booze. Thanks everyone."
-Guitar World :lol:
I luv this question....
Must Know solos:
1) Try Hangar18 by Megadeth. It took me almost 5 weeks.
2)Nothing Else Matters.. but I guess you know that already.
3)The Sweet Child O' Mine solo. Rocking!
4) The "Give in to Me" solo.
5) November Rain.
But if you want really 'metal' solos try Zakk Wylde's work... all 5 albums. Awesome stuff.
"Pain is pure, isn't it?"
mercyful fate a diamond head both had rockin' solos. check out the garage inc album metallica put out and you can hear their cover versions of some of their songs. totally rocking
"I got a woman, stay drunk all the time!"
Lynryd Skynrd - I Know a Little
Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.
Pink Floyd Time
Blue Oyster Cult Don't Fear The Reaper
My Karma Ran Over My Dogma
I like Alex Skolnick's solo on transoformation by his jazz group.
Also, any dream theater stuff, but my fav's are the solo's from beyond this life( including the keyboard solo) stream of conciousness, and the intro to this dying soul.
The meaning of life? I've never heard a simpler question! Music.
Dire Straights - Sultans of Swing
"my choice is what i choose to do
and if i'm causing no harm
it shouldn't bother you
your choice is who you choose to be
and if your causin' no harm
then you're alright with me"
Master of puppets - Metallica
"It's all about stickin it to the man!"
It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!
Anything really from metallica in their earlier days. Ride the lightning and seek and destroy have some pretty good solo's as far as I can recall.
Guitarin' isn't a job, so don't make it one.
Righteous and the Wicked by the Chilis. the octave pedal sounds great... if i'm right about it being an octave pedal. That and the solo from prophet's song by Queen are probably my top 2. As a bonus they both have amazing tones. And i'll second Don't fear the reaper.
Better shred than dead.
