Favourite Guitar Solo

Postby poohcarrot » Sat Nov 21, 2009 12:36 pm

Here's my favourite guitar solo of all time. Michael Schenker of UFO. This is a live recording of Rock Bottom from the Strangers in the Night live album.

It starts at 3'55" and goes on for over 5 minutes and is absolutely amazing.

Great idea Pooh

Two in one for you I’ve always thought Beck’s Bolero was a brilliant guitar solo but the bonus on this piece of film is that you get Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

I’ll admit it, I went looking for something unusual to post in this brilliant new thread but wasn’t expecting to find ANYTHING like this.

Phill,

I've been a Pink Floyd fan since 1967. Over the last couple of days I have kind gone on about this :oops: so I decided that if I put Comfortably Numb on this thread I might get pulled for it.
Thanks for making sure it claimed its rightful place in this thread.

I can only claim to have been a fan since 87 but then again I'm only 32 :lol: It's just very emotive playing, not flashy how many notes stuff, gives me goosebumps everytime still.

I remember being 32....Just. :lol:

The Goosebumps never go away.

If you’ve never seen Pink Floyd live then you want to see if you can get hold of a live DVD.

P.U.L.S.E. is a good one to go for not only for the music but because this lady is one of the backing singers! :oops:

The DVD was filmed at Earls Court so it was a gig in their home town and they certainly turned it on the night it was filmed.

Hope you manage to find a copy.

Ahh the days when men had proper hairstyles :lol:

When the single was released it was over 12 minutes long. This clip is just the guitar bit :shock: :shock:

Yes I have PULSE tbh I've got just about everything they've done including solo albums, got quite a few bootlegs as well including the show on the Animals tour where Waters spat at one of the audience :shock: David Gilmour At The Royal Albert Hall is one of my favourite live Dvd's EVER ! :)

The guitar solo at the start of Hurt By Johnny Cash is simple but brilliant and the six chords that compromise 7 nation army by The White Stripes is great. But the best of all of them has to be from Stair Way To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
