Favorite Guitar Solo


What is your favorite guitar solo? The one that bypasses your cerebral cortex? The one that best hits your emotional center? Any genre. Any period. Any length. A million notes. Or just one note. Obscure or famous. You can make any excuse as to why you choose it, but explanations are optional. But you gotta choose just one.

My choice? Eric Clapton’s solo in "Sleepy Time Time" from the Fresh Cream album. Simplicity. Emotional ecstasy. Tone.

Leo Kottke - just about all of his work 
Duane Allman on "Blue Skies."
Lots of great choices here. As my favorite guitarist is Buck Dharma from Blue Oyster Cult, most any of his solos are my favorites - all very tasty stuff. Otherwise, I got weary of the whole 'guitar solo' stuff around the time that punk came in in the late 70's. I'd rather hear a good song than a guitar solo, no matter how accomplished the guitarist is.
