What is your favourite?

I would normally plump for Clapton or Hendrix but here's one of my all time favourites to start off with.........

Zappa's guitar solo in Inca Roads in the album One Size Fits All was recorded live in Helsinki concert 1974. Zappa fans have voted it the best of his solos published in a record.

(I was there in that concert ;-)

Can Greg Lake's playing and singing The Sage (from Moussorgsky's The Pictures at an Exhibition) be considered as a guitar solo?

Two names that may not be too familiar but unparalleled geniuses in jazz guitar, with all respect to Wes Montgomery, Chet Atkins, Joe Pass et al. These two are the dog's bollocks !

Lenny Breau

Billy Gibbons then Freddie King. Two more insanely talented blues players from Texas.

LaGrange

Sweet Home Chicago

Thanks a lot Tootsie ! ( we need an irony emoticon ) I was supposed to go to a friend's house for a scotch tasting then I found this thread.

On the plus side I've spent the night basking in the glory of some of the greatest guitar playing ever. Thanks to everyone for posting up. Sorry if I've put too much stuff up but once I started...( and I haven't even touched Steve Vai, Elmore James, John Lee Hooker, Ritchie Blackmore, Brian Setzer...)

Okay. One more and that's it. Steve Vai plays the nuts off a guitar and digs the wind machine.

I'm The Hell Outta Here

...and Elmore James sweeps up...

BB King and U2. BB shows how to play the spaces between the notes. Perfect.

The sound quality's not the best, but Jack is an amazing player and a very nice man ( he loved playing my pub ) who should be more widely recognised than he is. I'm thinkin' being Canadian may be an obstacle in the blues world. I mean, it ain't the delta...but Hell ! This man can play !

Sorry, another acquaintance ( I've sung and drunk the odd beer with John ), but John Bride is another fabulous Canadian blues guitarist labouring in obscurity. Rita Chiarelli, The Cameo Blues Band ( Jack has played with them too ), this man is awesome.

Excaelis, I think you are right. I think this is the best version of Eleanor Rigby IVe heard. I enjoyed U2 and BB KIng too.
