Favorite guitar solo?

Mine shifts constantly, but I can honestly say for the most part a few of them always stay in my mind. Here are a few of my faves in no order of importance. Except for #1.
The Ritual

Return To Serenity

This solo has, and always will, put me in the dirt. Alex shreds this riff hard which brings the life to a premise to a dead soul alive. This solo will always be honored in the sense of its placement. This is currently my favorite guitar solo of all time.
Cowboys from Hell

Cemetery Gates

I have heard this solo probably over two thousand times. No joke. I can never get enough of this. Dime was on his A game here on the fretboard, melding with the backing rhythm makes this one of the best solo's ever recorded.
Rust in Peace

Poison Was The Cure

I know what you're thinking, and yes those solos on Lucretia and Tornado Of Souls kick ass, but to me, this is Marty just firing out cannons on the frets to end this masterpiece of a song about a snake. Those last high note vibratos are ear candy
4All That Remains
This Darkened Heart

Vicious Betrayal

This solo is something I have always enjoyed. Even though this album is littered with filthy solos all around, this one in particular hits me hard. It's the very end solo, the one that seals the deal.
5Ozzy Osbourne
No More Tears


Don't get me wrong, I love Randy. The dude was a legend. He was taking classical guitar lessons while he flew to England to meet Ozzy. He was a true prodigy. RIP. Some people say Zakk is nothing compared to Randy, which I do agree, but this solo here is Zakk popping off hard. Actually, he pops off hard the entire album. This solo has always kicked my ass and I love it with a passion.
6Ozzy Osbourne
Blizzard of Ozz

Crazy Train

Randy Rhoads. That is all.
7The Cult
Sonic Temple

Sweet Soul Sister

This solo is top tier and also a lesson on how effectively play a Les Paul. Not only is this one of the best solos ever recorded, this entire album has many more. This is just my favorite.
8Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin III

Since I've Been Loving You

Not taken from the actual album, but from the film The Song Remains The Same. Goddamn did Jimmy nail this, he nailed it hard and there are plenty of spur of the moment chords where Jimmy should have conceided. But nope, he manages it to the point of epic status.
Master of Puppets


Pertaining to the end solo, Kirk was on top of his game here. Some say he was just feeling it, others say he was summoned by Beelzebub. Whatever, he kicked ass on this entire record and especially this song. A very important pentatonic solo at its finest.
10Guns N' Roses
Appetite for Destruction

Sweet Child O' Mine

Love it or hate it, the last solo is one of the best ever to grace the airwaves.
11Lynyrd Skynyrd
Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd

Free Bird

Did you know this song used to be 2 minutes long? It was just acoustic. They kept performing it live and adding more and more to it and with time, it evolved into one of the best songs ever recorded. They used to fight each other on stage with solos, which was pretty cool because you had a left handed guitarist and a right handed guitarist and they would position themselves so the necks faced outwards. Good times and a true classic. How many years it took them to get to that point is inspiring.
