I don't mean the fastest, or the most technical etc, but ones that tug on the ole heart strings.
To start: The one at the end of this:
Hotel California sprang to mind as well, but I was just listening to those I posted, so went with those instead
Hahaha no, definitely not. I've seen that before and it is truly horrific, even coming from someone who was into a bit of hair metal at one point.
Frank Zappa- Watermelon in Easter Hay.
I saw Rush on that very tour RF. It turns out I am as old as Rush, lol, and I won tickets to see them on Total Rock. They were awesome.
Oh, and I love that song.
Edit: Sorry, but I don't do post-Fish Marillion
Can't Stop by the Chilis... So simple, just 4 notes, some bends, a killer tone...
(ironically I've seen it live twice, both times he turned it into a terrible fretwank)
There doesn't seem to be a good version of Someone's Crying by the Crimea online, but it's bloomin good.
have been lucky enough to see rush 5 times now,they are always awesome
i must agree about preferring fish also,but steve is always awesome have seen marillion a few times also.
Amongst many I love the solo's In I Am The Resurrection by the Stone Roses and Telegraph Road by Dire Straits. Makes me want to learn the guitar!
Any of Status Quo's classics.
Yee Gods, no Jimi.
Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil. 1968 and still way above any of that metal shite.
Dinosaur Jr. - Freak Scene
most of Eric Johnson but I'll go with trail of tears
centralscrutinizer has it. Unsurprisingly.
Watemelon in Easter Hay does make my eyes a bit gritty. Memories of Frank's early demise I suppose.
I just check these out to see what poor taste you all have
IF you mean "rock" then something by Hendrix and also Led zep
Otherwise it would be classical from me
Any of the solos on the Blue album or Pinkeron by Weezer

Good choice slowoldman...
Ah got to love the guitar solo....foot planted on monitor....fan blowing the hair...eyes closed in rapture....and inevitable air soloists playing along in perfect time and rhythm.

Watermelon in Easter hay, the live version is OK but this is the superb album version, possibly the most moving guitar solo of all time. (or it is in my little world)
