This was asked' date=' on the Gibson Forum, so...I thought

I'd bring it up here. What is/are you favorite SG solos?

 

Mine are (to name just two):

 

Longer: Crossroads (Cream..Wheels of Fire)

Shorter: Hey Bulldog (Beatles, Yellow Submarine)

 

How about you all?

Would it be greedy to say, "All of them!"?

Sunshine of Your Love and Tales of Brave Ulysses.

 

Geeze thought I'd already posted this but don't know where it has gone...gremlins?

 

I wasn't aware that "Sunshine of your love" was played on an SG...how interesting.

 

I love that song...where's my G400?

"Beatles" solos are so...."Iconic!" Deceptively simple...or is it simply deceptive?!

And always "just right!" Some of those sounds/tones are deceptive' date=' too.

Amazing, even now!

I agree and since you have Harrison as your avatar......I'm always learning that he played some little tasty part that I never knew. For example he played the rhythm guitar part on "Badge"........never knew that until just recently and that's one of my favorite songs to play. He was always like that ...not pretentious at all...just there playing the "right" thing always!

John Cipollina's solo on "The Fool" from the first Quicksilver Messenger Service album --- chill inducing!

Clapton's live "Crossroads" --- one of the best-constructed solos of all time.

Carlos Santana "Incident at Neshabur" from Abraxas

Crossroads always gets that comment, and from a musical point, it's quite true.

However, EC played it from his heart...as always...improvised on the spot, and

we were lucky enough, that someone recorded it! He's never played it that way,

again/since. I've seen him countless times, and his solo for that song is always

different. Always great...sometimes unbelievable, but never the same! It's actually

one of the things I love about Clapton, best! His brilliant improvisation(s).
