Keeping this in the rock genre, I really like the 3 soloes Springsteen plays on Warren Zevon's last album on the cut called "Disorder in the House", and Brian May's little solo in "We Will Rock You" is pure rock and roll distilled down to a short little solo. If we leave the rock genre and go into solo guitar work, we have lots of great stuff - Leo Kottke, Tommy Emmanuel etc.

Allman Brothers Live at the Fillmore East double album bought over to the UK late '71 by some friends from LA who came over with Zappa (when he got his leg busted by some twit at the Astoria/Rainbow).....


Head full of acid, blues and booze, the hi-fi (a pair of H||H 100w slaves, one left, one right into Tannoy concentrics - still going strong to this day.....).


All the solos, on every track, starting with Statesboro Blues.....

You Don't Love Me had me gibbering with excitement, and by the time Whipping Post came by, I was there, man, ready to pick up my guitar and play, let's form a band, let's rock, let's do something, anything so long as guitars are involved. Duane and Dickey were the inspiration.


Even now, that album makes the goose bumps rise.....

1. Mediterrainian Sundance - Al DiMeola

2. Splendido Suncance - Al DiMeola

3. The Clap - Steve Howe

4. Because we've ended as Lovers - Jeff Beck

5. Turn it Up - Ted Nugent


Oh and who can forget Eruption? EVH or Rude Mood - SRV?


man the list can go on and on - why limit to 5?

Without a doubt' date=' and I'm showing my age here:


Duane Allman's solo in Boz Scaggs' recording of "Loan Me A Dime" from his first album (1969).[/quote']


Man, I heard that song a long time ago and thought it was great, but I never knew it was Duane playing on it. Now I like it even more. I'm going to have to do a search for that one now!
