The Contenders: Page 20

381 My Back Pages - Roger McGuinn

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.

382 The Analog Kid - Alex Lifeson

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.

383 Double Talkin' Jive - Slash
384 Undone (The Sweater Song) - Rivers Cuomo
385 Every Rose Has Its Thorn - C.C. DeVille

Such a beautiful solo. The highlight of a great song. Both solos are good, but it's the second one that's just pure awesomeness - Shake_n_Bake13
