    Got to include the Roses. I am the Resurrection. My favouritest by a mile. I got a bit emotional seeing him launch into it, in full rock god mode, at Heaton Park last year. Never thought I’d see it live ….

    [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrWcgi1DI9Y[/video] don’t know if you’re into bruce, and you’ll either been blown away by Tom Morello’s solo or think it is awful. As a Rage fan as well as a bruce fan, tis was epic for me. Even my dad was asking “should I check out some RATM?”

    Edit, it all gets nuts around 5:30

    SRV’s version of Little Wing is pretty awesome…..first time I heard it I had to stop driving at 3:40 it is just mind blowing!

    Henrix’s solos in All Along The Watchtower are some of my favourites.

    Iron Maiden songs are full of more technical yet still nicely melodic solos.

    Check out some Pat Metheny too. His album quartet is up there with my favourite guitar stuff.

    …..and Charlie Christian for some of the earliest electric guitar soloing!

    I’ll be quiet now ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    there,s a cd that Pat Methenay did with Jim Hall which is all very melodic jazz guitar- well worth a listen just for the version of ” summertime ” , or a quiet night in just by Methenay, in fact any of his stuff

    Agreed! No words, just a guitar singing movingly. ๐Ÿ™‚

    With regard to Neil Young, check out him playing on ‘Mirror Ball’ with Pearl Jam as well as ‘4 Way Street’ live album with Crosby, Stills and Nash. 8)

    Blimey! Leslie West, there’s a name from the past. Yep, got Mountain on vinyl.

    Wishbone Ash – well, what can I say? Seen them a few times in the 70’s and still listen to ’em. ๐Ÿ™‚
