    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. :D

    I gotta say Under a Glass Moon by DT and Opeth's Hours of Wealth. That second one always manages to move me. /Akerfeldt fanboy

    Bear with me, you may find some music you like here...

    Neal Morse - "12" solo comes in around 3:15


    Berlin - "Pink and Velvet" first solo @ 2:10, outtro @ 4:00 both played by David Gilmour


    Rush - "By-Tor and the Snowdog" just watch the whole thing, it's like 3 for 1


    Rush - "Losing It" solo @2:50 and yes that is an electric violin


    :cool:

    Nothing else matters- Hetfield's solo just has so much soul an power behind it.
    Fade to black- kirks solo in the end is just awesome imo

    it also may be that i love these two solos just because i can't stop listening to these songs right now, just really into the more mellow stuff as of the moment

    A solo I've really been liking lately is Obscura's 'Cosmogenesis' - I can't decide whether or not I like this album but this song has an awesome solo:

    2:35



    Jeff Loomis' 'Devil Theory'. :tmm:

    Everyone is on solo on this one, a nice musical weaving and bobbing that never falls apart. Live it is really tight too, they don't loose it. ever.
