Love this solo by Prince, love it when he gives Goerges son a cheeky grin then takes it to 11 and leaves everyone else on stage for dead      

I am sure this has been done before, but the search does not seem to bring anything up - might be some fun anyway.   Pink Floyd - Comfortably Young  - I remember being at high school suppose

Didn't think too long on it, but reckon Richard Thompson is one of the best guitarists out there, and this one came to mind:          

Heroin Live - Lou Reed

 

Stairway to Heaven - Jimmy Page

 

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

 

Highway Star - Deep Purple 'Made in Japan'

 

Yep - old guy here 🙂

I feel like I could guess the age of everyone in this thread by matching the song they chose to the year they turned 14 :D

Not my absolute favourite, but I heard it first when I was 13 on a 50's compilations cassette. It blew me away...

 

And then many years passed I didn't hear it, and Jeff Beck starts playing this on his "Rock and Roll" party album. I was again gobsmacked at how nice this song is. Such a peaceful feeling.

 

Cheers,

 

Alberto

Better known as a jazz/ session keyboard player, David Sancious picks up the guitar and plays a song dedicated to Hendrix.

Sky Church Hymn #9.

 

Not a bad effort for a guy who only picked up a guitar with serious intent only a couple of years earlier.

Tom Morello from Rage against the Machine on the Ghost of Tom Joad with Springsteen 

 

https://youtu.be/e9f-F1CAB24

 

This popped up in my Spotify feed early last year and blew my feeble little mind, not just Tom Morello's playing, but the whole song

 

Top stuff

A brilliant one that I never get tired of hearing is 10.c.c's Eric Stewart on Feel The Benefit from the Deceptive Bends

Yes! Yes! Yes!   One of the greatest solos ever!!!

"The Irish Wonder" - Rory Gallagher. 

Against the Grain - Lost at Sea

Irish Tour 1974 - Tattooed Lady

(the fact that his guitar is arguably not completely in tune, absolutely does not matter!)

Everytime these two guys play this song, it's magic.

 

The live album of this was another one that turned up my Spotify feed a while back, phone was out of reach so didn't know who it was at first, thought it was SRV. 

 

If I owned this Album on vinyl, it would be well a truly worn-out by now. 

 

Spotify has also introduced be to Joe Bonamassa, still haven't worked out of I like him or not, good session player methinks... But he does well in Black Country Communion. Their live DVD goes off.

Strictly speaking not a 'guitar solo' but an intro instead. Heck, it is still a great piece of acoustic guitar music.

This is one I like, starts around 2:10 Maybe not the most technical, but just seems to fit together very well.

In no particular order (and I'm old) ...

Blind Willie Johnson: Dark Was The Night And Cold Was The Ground

Rory: Walk On Hot Coals

Clapton: Crossroads

Al Wilson (thought it was Harvey Mandel, but apparently not): Let's Work Together

James Burton: Oh Suzie Q

Jimi: Villanova Junction. So beautiful ...

He throws every lick he knows at that guitar solo and from someone who wasn’t trying so hard it would be pretty rote. From him it’s filled with so much teenage-boy’s-bedroom angst and effort to be seen that it kills me every time

Some of my favourites (all outros):

 

Richie Blackmore (Deep Purple) - Mistreated (from Burn) - restraint that builds.

Eric Clapton (Derek and the Dominos) - I Looked Away (from Layla....) - short but so sweet!

Carlos Santana (Santana) - Taboo (from III, or it could be Neil Schon!) - cat strangling at its best and totally spent after the final note!

Guthrie Govan (Steven Wilson) - Drive Home (from the Raven that Refused to Sing) - like David Gilmour on steriods!

The early '70's had some wonderful stuff, y'know. It was a time when there were far less labels on music than there is now. Lots of experimentation coming in from all over the place. Heavy Metal was years away, coming, in my opinion, with the second wave, the stylistic bandwagon jumpers, those who recognised what furrow they wanted to plough only after someone showed them the field in the first place.

Anyway, from that time before the handy labels, the title song to Uriah Heep's second album, Salisbury. It's long, it's jazzy in parts, it has an orchestra and, most importantly, it has  an absolutely riveting guitar solo that comes in three parts. Here it is in full. If you just want the solo then begin at the 11:20 mark, but for it to make full musical sense you really should start at the beginning. Mick Box rarely troubles the "Greatest Guitarist of All Time" lists, but this is worthy of you time. Enjoy.

Two that jump out at me...

 

Mark Knopfler - Telegraph Road (Studio version)

 

Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) - Like Suicide from Superunknown LP

 

They both get me in the feels every time...
