Greatest guitar solo ever
Coheed and Cambria's greatest hit, and for a good reason.
How did this solo not make the list?
One of the best and good solos..solo sounds too good and pretty difficult
Awesome guitar solo by Diamond head. Got to be one of the best. Metallica did a decent version too!
Most of the rest listed here are hard and fast, which is great.
However, McGuinn's "ringing Rickenbacker" offered one of the most distinctive sounds in rock history.
His solo on this number is sweet, plaintive, and achingly beautiful.
Anybody from back then who hears it now is literally riveted in place while they listen, and the young lions need to understand it is not always about who plays the loudest.
A little too much emphasis here on speed and loudness; why not some beauty?
McGuinn's "Ringing Rickenbaker" is the sweetest and most distinctive guitar sound in rock history.
Plaintive and nostalgic, this solo brings forth the memory of summers long past.
The way this solo is executed��" especially on the band's 2012 Clockwork Angels Tour��" is unmistakably brilliant. It's fast-paced, psychedelic, incorporates a variety of note progressions and tones, and is simply gut-wrenchingly otherworldly.
