- Most powerful guitar solos
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.Posted 3 years agowelshfarmerSubscriber
Frank Zappa vs. Stevie Vai. Check out that fashion statement!
And this one from Lindsey Buckingham. Always find myself looking for the other guitars….

Michael Angleo Batio – deeply moving, very sensitive playing as always! 😀 I’d like to see that quad-guitar of his setup thus:
Neck 1) 6 string. Neck 2) banjo. Neck 3) ukelele. Neck 4) sitar 😀
These kind of “power” solos are all about target notes hitting bang on chords on slow(ish) repeated progressions. As a listener it seems like it’s all down to an amazing soloist but IMO when composing / playing, it’s actually the chord progression behind it that really dictates 90% of the feeling and sound there. In some ways it dictates what’s played. (doesn’t stop Stairway’ being a blinding solo, of course!)
For anyone that likes the Gilmourish stuff, you might enjoy this one: (5:00 onwards)
and this ‘ un from about 3:25

Gilmour has the touch, for me. This may deliberately be emotionally cold, but the phrasing and spareness of it makes it spine-tinglingly lovely – from 2’07
This is one of the best pieces the band ever did, with Gilmour’s solo striking right at the heart of it…at 2’52 if you have to jump straight to it, but it’s worth spending the time getting there.
I always found this beautiful and restrained.
This George Harrison track deserves to be better known, because the guitar playing is sublime.
I think also it’s George playing guitar on this minor masterpiece by JL>>>Posted 3 years ago
I think JJ Cale deserves to be in here somewhere but I can’t pin him down to one solo!
