A fast, but with soul and style played, bluesy solo
Love this solo so much! Should be WAY higher!V1 Comment
very underrated solo!
the whole song with the tremolo parts is really difficult - richie4life
Slow beautiful Song, Schenker adds another perfect solo. -
Prince's guitar solo is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Truly magnificent.
This might not be the fastest, flashiest solo out there, but damn McCready plays this solo like a true master. This guy can seriously shred a guitar, but he stays calm and collected to bring a high energy and just all round amazing solo that fits perfectly with the song.
2 minutes of some of the best guitar lines ever playedV2 Comments
I've listened to all sorts of guitar music, and this should be ranked number one in my opinion. There is just so much heart, soul, and feeling put into the composition of the guitar solo. It's just so tasteful. But perhaps as someone said of Knopfler's playing on this song, calling it a "solo" demeans the quality of the guitar writing and playing, and it blends so subtly into the song.
For me this is the best guitar song ever (above 'Sultans of Swing' and 'Hotel California' - though the live acoustic version on the 'Hell Feezes Over' disc is beautifully played by Felder and Walsh).
Brings tears to my eyes every time
Really really great should be in the top ten

There's no better solo that I've ever heard! He plays the guitar in this solo as though he's dying, and may never play again. John Frusciante=God
The emotions that Frusciante puts in that solo, it's just incredible. I wouldn't know why you shouldn't vote for a solo like this.
This is a really under rated song! I urge everyone to listen to it once!
You'll be stunned to see how someone can express so much emotions just through a guitar solo! I'm sure everyone will change their mind after listning to this song
Every time I listen this song it sends shivers down my spine!
Great solo-LaLonde plays the heck out of his guitarV1 Comment
While in my opinion not the best guitar solo that Buck has ever done, it does capture how melodic and beautiful his work is. For other examples (and there are many) of this great guitarist work, try to check out Dominance and Submission, Astronomy, The Vigil and Bucks Boogie just to name a few on top of my head.V1 Comment
I prefer many other solos but this is really underrated
This should not be as low as it is. Syn is awesome
Why so low? Just because they aren't old doesn't mean A7X can't compare or easily beat most old bands. come on, people! Grow some ears and listen to bat country! You won't regret it.
Amazing solo! - Jado1234V1 Comment
This entire record is full of amazing solos. Animal, Love And Affection, etc...
