    You deserve this for this!

    Sometimes I have to wonder about Tommy Stinson...too bad he's probably bound to leave a lot of interesting stuff out of the book he'll hopefully write someday...

    I don't like others.

    FM- Steely Dan. I don't know if that's Walter Becker playing or the other Dan guitarist but it's note perfect.

    I May Know The Word- Tiger Lily, Natalie Merchant. Jennifer Turner's solo with sympathetic back up by NM on electric piano. Note perfect.

    Gabor Szabo's comping and solo on Lady Gabor for Chico Hamilton's Man of Two Worlds.

    Neil Young for invention on his first album. I'm a sap for the way he stretches out with Crazy Horse.

    Buddy Guy on his tribute to SRV on Damn Right I Got The Blues. The ebb and flow and building of climaxes from the first chorus to the last. A master at work.

    Brilliant! Stay to the end and you can watch more. Clapton is God!

    Here we go again...LOL


    For you guys too young...there was a huge controversy years ago from the Churches when a reporter said that Clapton was God.

    Steve Hunter's solo at the end of "Heroin" on Lou Reed's Rock 'n Roll Animal live album absolutely destroys me every time I hear it.

    Absolutely. Destroys.

    One of the best...

    ...that I've ever heard was the Jeff "Skunk" Baxter solo on Steely Dan's My Old School. Our guitar player learned it note for note and it never failed to bring down the house when he played it. Although he took liberties with most other solos, introducing his own embellishments and flights of fantasy, he always played this one just as Baxter did. He claimed that he could not improve on perfection, and that it would be sacrilege to even try.

    I don't think all of you have watched the videos...have you?

    Here's another great one by Eddie Van Halen

    anyone heard of Thin Lizzy?

    How about the song called The Rocker?


    the original version with Eric Bell on guitar tears it up....

    I'm not sure i'm on the same lines here but Satriani's 'summer song' has a killer solo. Love it

    Very difficult to say, and is speed the main criteria?

    There are way to may shredders out there, and they don't do a friggin' thing for me. Hey, I wish I was lightning fast and all, but most solos are pretty boring, especially when they don't fit the song (listen to Eddie Van Halen's solo is Jump...and mostly everything else). I want a tasteful, melodic solo, not somebody flying up and down the frets to show us how great he is.

    That being said, Hendrix in Machine Gun is great stuff, and solos in 'Statesboro Blues' on the Eat a Peach record from the Allman Brothers always gets me crazy. Duane's slide was incredible.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    It would seem that some people just don't know what to think of this post, I'm glad you found it amusing like it is.

    I certainly want to thank you for the link. These are the funniest things I've found on the web in ages. I was out driving today and broke out laughing again remembering Ozzie clapping along. Did you hear Jake's neck crack when Ozzie pulled his hair?

    And in the beginning there was Django Reinhardt.....I'm kinda partial to Ronnie Earl's "Baby Doll Blues" though.

    Attention Attention....

    Everyone...thank you for your great replies, but I feel compelled to sort of 'let some things outta the bag here'. While this certainly would be a good thread to start, like a legitimate 'best guitar solos of all time' that was not the intention of this thread, but rather to show a funny video that this website is generating where they take a normal guitar solo and remix over it with a really crappy audio track that sync's up with it perfectly in some bizarre way.

    I've been continuously drawn back to this thread over the several weeks, evil though it may be. I think what makes it most hilarious is that whomever did the overdubs is probably a character of some skill. Y'all notice how the techniques are correct and the tone and note choices are caricatures of the original. Freakin' even more hilarious.

    Nice work, P-Diddy. You've made me laugh several times over the last month. You get a greenie.
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Personally I like just about any solo from Jeff Beck. The guys a guitar wizard like no other in the way he can make his Axe talk.
