I was gonna say Jimi's "Star Spangled Banner", but....
Then I was gonna say "Crossroads Suite", but....
Then I was gonna say Eric Sands' "Hanglider", but...
...there's just so many to choose from, and so many I haven't heard yet.

I'll just go with Charlotte McCaffery's solo in "We Got The Beat".

Done.

How can such a simple question create such a turmoil of emotion!!!!

When it came out........Eruption must have changed the world

......but Eddie's solo on Pleasuredome on F.U.C.K. is awesome

Big Trouble by Stevie......damn, that solo is cool!

Zakk's solo in No More Tears has great dynamics

Yngwie's solo in 'Rising Force' is great

I heard a Steve Morse track for the new Purple album the other day called 'The Well-Dressed Guitar' and it was incredible

Eric Johnson is sooooo tasteful, Manhattan is a great track

Paul Gilberts solo in 'The Drill Song'......Jeeeeeeeesus

Satch's 'Flyin' in a Blue Dream' has a beautiful feel to it



.........man I can't do this....I've got a headache!

The Silent Within
Windows to the Soul
Rescue Me or Bury Me
andů
