Our Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time poll certainly caused some fierce debate amongst guitarists
and that was just in our office. Choosing the 'greatest' guitar solo is obviously subjective in the extreme. But Guitarist had other motivations too we were eager to see how many modern solos have impressed you all in the thirteen years since our last solo poll. The results were suprising. After asking for your nominations, we took the 20 most popular and asked for you vote on which your though was most deserving here and at MusicRadar. You voted in your thousands, fanbases were motivated and old favourites suffered.
Also, can't forget Mark Farner blasting away on "Inside Looking Out" on Grand Funk's live album.
Er...am I showing my age here?
Also Bill Nelson of Bebop Deluxe “Crying To The Sky” off the “Sunburst Finish” LP. I also recommend This LP’s cover art. Not for any purient interest, It’s art don’t you know.
I used to have the Pulse concert on Laserdisc and picked it up on DVD a couple years ago. Comfortably Numb STILL causes my eyes to water up a bit. Any time music hits me strong on an emotional level I give it a very high score.
You need to check out his solo work. He’s been a prolific musician. Can play pretty much any style.
He plays all the instruments he uses. Piano. Drums. Guitar. everything.
I always detested the Eagles.
He was referring to Adrian Smith from Iron Maiden.
That was Blackmore.He was with Purple from the beginning.
Or of course, this little ditty.
I saw him do that piece using the E-bow live over 30 years ago.
Truly a legend before his time.
