Forget about Jimi, it evens puts the metal junks to shame.
Great song by chicago album: Chicago 2
Jimi had a 2-year career. Sad.
Don't know about guitar solos, but the absolute best, most astounding, banjo duet was the challenge in 'Deliverance".
In Flames - December Flower
:insert Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits song:
My favorite is Elliot Randall's solo on Steely Dan's "Reelin in the Years". Also featured Skunk Baxter in a duet portion. Still gets me going.

Steve Vai in Crossroads wasn't too shabby (Ralph Karate Kid machiawhatever didn't actually play the guitar for the part .. lol)
Slash in November Rain.

I'll plug a good friend of mine, Howard Paul, a jazz guitarist here in Savannah. This is Howard playing his Benedetto guitar with the late bass player Ben Tucker.
Recorded April 2011 at Ruths Chris Steak House, Savannah GA.
Metallica - One Or Van Halen - Intro, You really got me
Both solos would make you lose 5 lbs playing em.
Best soloIST- Stevie Ray
Long version of Texas Flood by stevie ray vaughn ! Texas Flood is an electric blues album by blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble, ...
My biased opinion still goes to 'voodoo child'
Aww definitely.. Almost 4 got how awesome he was-
Nobody mentioned herman lee in through the fire and flames (dragon force)??? Weird.
I'd go with Allen Collins (Lynyrd Skynyrd) in "Freebird"
Awesome guitar solo at the end If I leave here tomorrow Would you still remember me? For I must be travelling on, now, cause theres too many places Ive got t...
There's no doubt Terry Kath was criminally under-rated, and this is an awesome solo.
But have to ask: what is a "best" guitar solo?
I likely couldn't pin it down to 25 favorites...or if I could, my list would be different tomorrow.
Anyway just my
eddie is top five without a doubt
kudos on the mention of Ben; great person all the way around.
Never understood the need to tear down someone else to elevate another player
Jimi Hendrix respected Terry Kath to the bone
Someone else mentioned Stevie Ray
One of my best friends, now deceased lived next door to him for years in Austin and he told me Stevie used to cringe when people compared him to Hendrix
I was watching a replay of Woodstock the other day and I had forgotten how brilliant Carlos Santana's solo on Soul Sacrifice was
Another great solo is Wayne Perkins beautiful melodic solo on The Wailers Concrete Jungle

Yep. I didn't know Ben very well, but by all accounts, he was just that.
you guys must have forgotten about Yngwie. Check this out.
A funny dubbed version of one of his instructional guitar videos.
Duane Allman Blue Sky
Stevie Ray was sooo good, what a great loss that was. Hendrix live...he had so much sex appeal, it was as if he was making love to his guitar on stage..George Harrison was underrated, IMO.
Clapton on Crossroads with Cream...still gives me chills..the build up leading into the second solo sent chills down my spine.
I saw all these guys live, opinion not just from their studio work.
From the album, Wheels of Fire~I DO NOT OWN CREAM
Ginger Baker~drums and vocals
Eric Clapton~guitars and vocals
Jack Bruce~piano, bass, and vocals

"Here are provided seats of meditative joy, where shall rise again the destined reign of Troy." Virgil
i like page in heartbreaker
That is a great one
He never did a BAD solo though
I have always thought Dazed and Confuzed was his best work, and it is definately the most difficult
Two times during their touring career, he suffered serious damage to one of the fingers on his left hand
He could sit down and work out different fingering tranposals for every song in their set except Dazed and Confused so it would get thrown out until his finger healed
