The Contenders: Page 6

101 Child In Time - Deep Purple Child In Time - Deep Purple
102 Tender Surrender - Steve Vai

Sure, it sounds like its played over a cheesy backing track, but hey man, it's Steve Vai! His impeccable timing and good phrasing creates an interesting and complicated combination of sounds.

103 Since I’ve Been Loving You - Jimmy Page V 2 Comments
104 Nottingham Lace - Buckethead

If you want a true definition of a solo you will listen to this one. If you want an eargasm solo you will listen to this solo live. - JXJ

This is Top Ten class. Unbelievable to see this at 70.
