    Which songs had your favorite guitar solos?

    Please, no elitism. The favorite guitar solo can be from a song from past to present. And please, no whining about how one era of music is better than the other (this especially goes for one member that I won't name).

    With that said, I have alot of favorites, but my undisputed favorite has to be Slash's solo from:

    Guns N' Roses- "Sweet Child o' Mine"

    Touch one to pick a favorite for.

    I'll just pick Megadeth - Holy Wars.

    I'm sure there are ones I like more but that's one that pops into my mind at the moment.

    You know, wouldn't it be decent if we had a music forum?

    Yeah. Even CS has one. If we have a Politics and Celebrities forum, I don't see why we couldn't have a music forum.

    Yeah these....

    But i mean look at some of the guitarists on this list:

    - Slash (GNR)
    - Gilmour/Watters (Pink Floyd who i've both seen play incredibly).
    - Angus Young (ACDC)
    - Eric Clapton/Duane Allman (Allman played the Studio Album version of Layla but Clapton can do it just as well and is one of the greatest guitarists i've ever seen both with Cream and solo).
    - Brian May (Queen)
    - Joe Perry (Aerosmith)
    - Pete Townshend (The Who)
    - Eddie Van Halen
    - Jimi Hendrix
    - George Harrison (The Beatles)
    - Keith Richards (The Rolling Stones)
    - Stevie Ray Vaughn

    So it's no real surprise.

    I like The Outlaws - Green Grass and High Tides solo and i'd never even heard that song until i bought Rock Band.

    One of my favorite solos is Joe Walsh's solo in Hotel California.

    I also like the solo in Boston's "Piece of Mind" played by Barry Goudreau.

    and how do you not like Skynyrd's guitars? Rossington and Gaines.

    Also! NEIL YOUNG! COME ON PEOPLE!

    Collins too, i was just talking about Skynyrd in General though not just Freebird. I happen to love Sweet Home Alabama and Simple Man perhaps even more than Freebird.

    Randy Rhoads in Crazy Train i suppose is worth bringing up if we're going to put Black Sabbath (Ozzy's first claim to fame) on this list.
