Not necessarily metal, just your favourites. Here are mine: The solo comes in at 5:18-ish. If I had to pick just one solo as an all-time favourite it would be this. Ron Jarzombek just slays on this track, everything about it is amazing IMO. This one is at 3:17. It caused me months and months of pain trying to work it out but I finally got it, I have a version on YouTube but it's nowhere near the original... this guy is 21 or 22 now so just imagine how good he'll be when he's 35 or whatever. He could be one of the next guitar heroes in metal I think. At 2:50 ish. Pat Metheny is simply brilliant on this. A long solo that really develops and builds. At 1:51. Not metal at all but it's fantastic. Both the guitarists just make the notes scream. So much feel and technically great as well. At 4:15. I also covered this on YouTube but my version pales into nothing compared to the towering majesty of the original. JP is god. At exactly 10 minutes. Three minutes of pure beauty, one of John Petrucci's all-time best solos. The bit from 10:45 in particular just sounds effortless. So... over to you! Post favourites, whatever genre or how embarrassing they might be.
