|Favourite Guitar Solos|
What're Sputnik's favourite guitar solos? Just outta curiosity, I guess.
|1||Coheed 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.
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.
|3||Guns 'n' Roses|
At 5:57, in the middle of Slash going nuts, is a pinched harmonic used well.
|4||The Mars Volta|
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.
|5||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
That slide solo at the end.
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
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.
|9||Queens 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.
|10||Rings of Saturn|
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.
|Probably forgotten a shitload here. In fact, I know I have. |
EDIT: Shit. Yeah, forgot Parisienne Walkways by Gary Moore. And Sloe Gin by Joe Bonamassa.
