    Frank Zappa – Watermelon in Easter Hay, from Joe's Garage, or the live version of Sharleena from the 'You can't do that on stage anymore' sampler are my current favourites.

    Anything played by Lowell George from Little Feat, but 'Fat man in the bathtub' is spot on.

    'Ricky don't loose that number' by Steely Dan is a cracker too.

    Spotify is ace but some great stuff missing. EG Budgie – Napolean Bonaparts I & II are ace, bass overload on every speaker I have ever had.

    YYZ – Rush.

    Astronomy – Blue Oyster Cult original or Metallica.

    White Room – Cream.

    have fun and rock on!

    ooft cant believe I didn't think of comfortably numb… Anyone catch it when they did it at live 8? Waters' voice was **** but those solos!

    Funkadelic – Maggotbrain

    Eddie Hazel recorded it in one take.

    Gary Moore.
    Aynsley Lister.

    Not forgetting Hendrix.

    Guns n roses – Sweet child o mine. Dont even like them as a band and that song is pretty **** but the guitar solo is class

    Neil Young – Cowgirl in the Sand is a guitar masterpiece

    Try 'Goin back home' by Dr Feelgood from the Malpractice album – genius.

    'I Never Glid Before' by Gong from the Angels Egg album is another classic – Steve Hillage's best solo IMHO.

    very obscure this but….

    mike walker's solo on 'A month in tunisia' by Julian Argulles

    wow never knew deep purple where soulful…sadly all i had heard of them is smoke on the water.

    thanks for the recommendations everyone 😀

    It Hurt me too by Savoy Brown. The most overblown but heartfelt guitar solo in the world. Ever. It WILL make you screw your face up and getcha air guitar out, I promise.

    Oh, and The Audience is Listening by Steve Vai if you really want to RAAAAAWK out.

    Dr Feelgood? Blimey, that really takes me back … to a sweaty pub in Eastcote possibly … and knowing that you were seeing a pretty special band. Daren't think about the year, 1974 perhaps?

    Of course the late Lee Brilleaux was on vocals 🙂

    Check out 4 Way Street, a live album by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. On CD2 is some really good guitar stuff. Boy, does Neil Young know about riffs 8)

    Also, do not forget the late Stevie Ray Vaughan!

    I love guitarists 🙂

    The Damned 'Smash It Up'

    eh? great song(s) yes, but blistering soulful guitar solo?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE05qtYlf9w this is pretty good when Wayne Hussey really lets rip 3min20sec in

    Sorry but just don't "get" Floyd. I've seen them a few times, even saw the premiere of Dark Side of the Moon at Wembley in, er, the 1970's sometime.

    Thin Lizzy – Live & Dangerous, Brian Robertsons solo on 'still in love with you'

    Premier Icon speaker2animals

    Thin Lizzy – Emerald – real mob marching over the hill,you can almost see them coming.

    Intro of Xanadu – Rush again, sorry.

    Try some Yes – Steve Howe is an amazing jazz (IMHO) guitar man. Roundabout try, I think. Bit drunk so memory function is abit all over the place so may not actually pin the tracks on the head that I want.

    "Neil and Jack and Me" – King Crimson – Beat album I think or maybe Three of a Perfect Pair.

    Crimson again – All of Red album – especially "Starless and Bible Black" and "One More Red Nightmare"

    Brain is seizing up totally now,much too late and drunk for coherent thought. Hope that you can keep it rockin!

    Ooh – try some Lone Star (not the C&W act), a 70's rock band, pre UFO and others. Albums are "Lone Star" and "Firing on all six". Track that comes to mind is "The Ballad of Crafty Jack" off the latter and "The Bells of Berlin" also off the latter.

    Lone Star aren't on Spot but can find a couple on Youtube. Bells of Berlin, Lonely Soldier and From all of us to all of you.

    Give em a go. Esp the 1st and 3rd tracks.

    Not obvious to some people, but for me when I think of soulful I think of most any Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac performance:

    Need your Love So Bad:

    World keep on turning:

    but for sheer technical brilliance way before his time see Jose feliciano:

    Hey Jude:
