Favourite Guitar Solos

What're Sputnik's favourite guitar solos? Just outta curiosity, I guess.
1Coheed and Cambria
The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut

My favourite solo of all time, ever. I was going to try and mention a specific moment for
each, but in this the whole thing just rules.
The rest are unranked, but this one deserved to be here in my opinion.
2Alter Bridge

There's nowt like a solo that builds up well, and this builds up very, very well. The switch
from Myles' cleaner-channeled slow jam into Tremonti's ripper is amazing.
3Guns 'n' Roses
Paradise City

At 5:57, in the middle of Slash going nuts, is a pinched harmonic used well.
4The Mars Volta
L'Via L'Viaquez

The first of two featuring John Frusciante, this has no less than 3 solos across it's length, all of
which amazing in their own way. Proggy gloriousness.
5Red Hot Chili Peppers
Scar Tissue

That slide solo at the end.
The Czar

The bit starting at 8:29 is such an awesome climax point, but the entire track is essentially
one awesome jam session, really. But being on Sputnik, that was probably already a given for
7Ne Obliviscaris
Forget Not

Can't remember if I specified if it was guitar solo or not. Doesn't matter. The violin in this rules.
Reap What You Sow

Hardcore solos are always good.
9Queens of the Stone Age
God Is On The Radio

Probably not nearly as good as it is in my head, but being the first solo I ever fully learnt on
guitar this has a special place for me, and is probably blown up significantly. Still, I think it's
really rather good.
10Rings of Saturn
Fruitless Existence

Fight me. I don't know whether it seems better as they finally slow down a bit for the solo at
the end of this track, or whether it is actually really good, but whenever this comes on shuffle
I always hang around for the last bit.
