This thread has the potential for over 1,000 posts. This is a cheezy song and uncomplicated solo.... but I like it!

Pick one - anyone!

(I love La Villa Stranglatto - sp?)).

On the other hand, listen to a live version from their latest - Malignant Narcissim - love Getty Lee’s bass riffs.

As for players, Andres Segovia will always be the best IMO.

“Rollin’ in my Sweet Baby's Arms” - Jerry Reed

What the late Reed did with a guitar was nothing short of incredible. Even Chet Atkins called him the best.

Here’s Malignant Narcissim off their live album (Snakes and Arrows Live 2007-2008). I hope Obama doesn’t ruin it by taking it for his theme song!

The DVD for this concert is coming out on Monday. It has GREAT sound. The link is from the live Snakes & Arrows album.

I thought that this was a great song for Sarah Palin. (Guess who is the Snowdog and who is By-Tor!?) Too bad the story in the song ends up so much better.

By-Tor and the Snowdog

The tomb of Hades, lit by flickering torchlight
The nether world is gathered in the glare
Prince By-Tor takes the cavern to the north light
The sign of Eth is rising in the air.
By-Tor, knight of darkness,
Centurion of evil, devil’s prince.

Across the River Styx, out of the lamplight
His nemesis is waiting at the gate
The Snow Dog, ermine glowing in the damp night
Coal-black eyes shimmering with hate.
By-Tor and the Snow Dog
Square for battle, let the fray begin.

The battle’s over and the dust is clearing
Disciples of the Snow Dog sound the knell
Rejoicing echoes as the dawn is nearing
By-Tor in defeat retreats to Hell
Snow Dog is victorious
The land of the Overworld is saved again.

The Who - The Rock - Quadrophenia

Note the guitar solo at 4:42, simple yet powerfully soulful ... Pete Townshend knows how to wrest every note from a guitar, that is until he smashes the damn thing! /lol

After Hendrix there’s a ton of great guitar songs.
Try Cream’s ‘Crossroads’.
Anything from ‘Tightly Knit’ by Climax Blues Band.

Etc., etc., etc....

Well, there is this world famous one, from the world famous Nigel Tufnel:

Nigel Shreds

But seriously though, nothing can match legend BB King and hot-shot Gary Moore in this clip:

BB King & Gary Moore - The Thrill is Gone

Gary shows off and plays clouds and clouds of gnat notes, while BB just sits back and laughs, until his moment comes, where BB simply screams SOUL with only one or two or four notes ... gotta love thems Blues :)

The Allman Brother's Band Live at The Fillmore East or the re-mastered The Fillmore Concerts not only is the greatest live album ever recorded, but has the greatest guitar solos during In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, and Whipping Post, and the greatest pair of dual-leads -- Duane Allman and Dickie Betts -- playing off each other that you will ever hear.

Here's La Villa Stranglatto live in Rio from ~ 2002. Not bad for three guys in their 40’s at the time. I think they have gotten better with age - especially in their live performances. The live in Rio DVD was recorded with no sound checks prior to the show as they were running late. The 40,000+ audience is a bit loud sometimes - but adds to the atmosphere!

Alex tears it up around 3:30. And at about 7:30 they do some impromptu stuff - rare for Rush, but very fun.
