Discussion in 'Odds & Ends' started by J011yroger, Dec 16, 2007.
Worthy discussion topic no?
blues all the way for me
Gary Moore - Still got the blues
Jimi Hendrix - Wind Cries Mary
SRV - too many here...
Luther Allison - 10 minute guitar solos. oh yeah.
this guy plays the ukelele
he is ridiculously talented.
He might be better on the ukelele than hendrix, vai, satriani et al are on the guitar
while my guitar gently weeps:
star spangled banner, (no virtuoso stuff here, just a great version):
Hendrix - Red House
Paul Galbriath - Bach D minor Chaconne
John Abercrombie - Anything he's ever played.
Scott Henderson - The solo from the first track on the first Vital Tech Tones album.
John Scofield - Blue Matter
No particular order:
Jimmy Page: Whole Lotta Love
Steve Vai: Whispering a Prayer
Peter Frampton: Do You Feel Like We Do?
Al DiMeola: anything he's done, but if I'm picking one, Race with the Devil on a Spanish Highway
Slash's november rain has to be up there
kirks master of puppets too or the One solo..
Anything by steve vai lol
Vital Tech Tones. Sweet. I'm more of a bass/Victor Wooten guy myself. ;-)
hey tennis im a bassist and yes victor is very good..
yngwie malmstien mother %*&+@^
Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection
Well, here's 2 of (arguably) the most influential guitarists of the 20th Century:
Hendrix and Robert Johnson (anything they ever played.)
Repeat topic, yes? Why don't you do a search-there was a long discussion on this very topic a little while ago.
we can consider it a rebirth of a previously started worthy subject. Phil, how's that tele treatin ya?
Well, one thing's not up for debate - one of the greatest 5 ever guitar solos in history was NEVER played by this individual!
1) Hendrix ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER
2) Hendrix LITTLE WING (SRV version is also excellent)
So why not continue the debate using the previous thread (where there are some very interesting and informed opinions)?
The Tele is good, but unfortunately, I've had to put it down for a week or so due to some commitments that have robbed me of the time to do the stuff that counts-i.e. read, watch movies, drink and stay out all night and...study those chords!
roger waters, dave gilmour ??
Randy Rhoads-Crazy Train
Joe Satriani-Surfing With The Alien album
SRV-all of Stevie's solos are great!
Shawn Lane-Powers of Ten
No one has mentioned Stairway to Heaven(Jimmy Page) or Comfortable Numb(david gilmour)
I'm pretty sure someone mentioned both...in previous discussions on this EXACT SAME TOPIC!
Mods? How about it?
I find it outrageous and unacceptable that noone has mentioned the living legend that is this man...
MURRAY COOK IS GOD!!!... and the other Wiggles are pretty cool also!
Jimmy Page: Heartbreaker
Eddie Van Halen: Eruption
Eric Johnson;: White cliffs of Dover
from "Live in Austin"
Alex Lifeson: La Villa Stangiato from "Exit Stage Left (live album)
Frank Zappa: Watermelon In Easter Hay (Joe's Garage)
Inca Road (One Size Fits All)
The Ocean Is the Ultimate Solution (Lather) or (Studio Tan)
Filthy Habits (Lather)
Props to whoever mentioned Vital Tech Tones, even though Scott Henderson is my least favorite component.
Cause We've Ended As Lovers - Jeff Beck
Rock My Plimsoul - Jeff Beck
Birds of Fire - John McLaughlin/Mahavishnu Orchestra
Institutionalized - Rocky George/ST
The Wizard - Al Di Meola
Alex Lifeson, Rush, Freewill
lifeson is soooo great, awesome live
Alright another DiMeola fan! nice call on Birds of Fire, have you listened to Paco de Lucia, Di Meola, and McLaughlin tear up "Mediterranean Sundance" from Friday Night in San Francisco? I just want to stop playing guitar.
One of my favorites back in the day was "Call it Sleep" by Vai off the album Flexible. All the virtuosity you would expect plus emotion and killer tone.
Come Clean - Hillary Duff
Ritchie Sambora ---"Guitar Guidos From Outer Space"
Alvin Lee - I'd Love to Change the World
David Gilmour - Dogs
Slash- Sweet Child of Mine
Steve Howe (of Yes) - Yours is no Disgrace
Actually, there's too many to mention.
There needs to be a thread: "Top 6 guitar solos of all time."
That will be great until someone comes out with the top 7 of all time. What will we do then?!?
Alex Skolnek, Testament, Practice What You Preach...for the "Metal" category.
Alex Lifeson, Rush, YYZ...for the "Progressive Rock" category.
I'll have to think for a bit...
All along the watchtower by Hendrix
That Alvin Lee solo was great, it doesn't get the attention of " Going Home', but still great IMHO. I saw Alvin play that live in what 72' Yikes ! - another great solo ( that i metioned on the old thread) is the George Harrison' solo on " Something" so melodic and perfect. You see youngsters, it doesn't have to go a million notes per second to be good. Man, I'm sounding old....
Top fourteen solos of all time, please.....
Yep....good call J011yroger. How 'bout we kill two birds with one stone:
"Top 14 solos of all time"
Clapton's original live version of "Crossroads" (LP-"Wheels of Fire"?) ain't bad, btw
Some solos I personally like:
Ride -- Like A Daydream
Manic Street Preachers -- Motorcycle Emptiness
Cream -- Badge
Derek + the Dominoes -- Little Wing (cover)
Van Halen -- Spanish Fly
Megadeth -- Holy Wars
Lynrd Skynrd -- Freeeeeeeeeee Bird!
Television -- Marquee Moon
Luna Sea -- Storm
Dinosaur Jr/J Mascis -- All of them
