Alrighty...
I'm sure this post has been...posted.. many a time.
But.
I want to specify for you guys before you start puting solos out that EVERYONE and their FRIGGIN MOTHERS know.
for example

::post begins::
What is a really good solo?
::post reply::
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!

thanks
Marshall

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

Have fun!

Yes!!!

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.

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

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.

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.

Cheers

Cheers.

Better shred than dead.
