Ok some people think there ia 4 solos and some people think there is 3. I think there is 3... from the tapping part on in the "3rd" solo is all the 3rd solo.

One has three solos, the intro, the middle and the end. The harmonized one doesn't count cuz it's two guitars, and there for not "solo."

Man, I can't imagine anyone starting off with crazy train. What hell are you people thinking? Maybe if you practiced for a year without playing solo's, then went straight to that... maybe. Otherwise I can't see it happening unless you're some kinda prodigy

Don't remember what I started with... probably some easy Metallica solo

There's a ****ing solo after that solo ends.

The 3rd solo plays, then after that there is a couple bars of rythym, then another solo.

When my guitar teacher introduced me to Black Sabbath it changed my life, as following to the addicition of there music, I learned Paranoid, which also was my first solo. The solo I am currently learning is Holy Wars by Megadeth.

I think Nirvana's "Floyd The Barber" if it can even be called a solo.

I don't know if you can coun't this as a solo...but the end of For Whom the Bells Tolls by Metallica.

sun of sam, the pattern of the solo is not too complicated and flows great, there is just something about that solo that has a kinda happy energy. the Enjoy Incubus version is harder than Fungus and has one small part I still cant make out 100%, but was fun and definately took few weeks to get to speed.

anyways, once you are correct about einziger, he has his own style for sure imo. the funky early solos are great, Sink beneath the link great for solo also, some of his best early work.
