Greatest Guitar Solos

I found a really fascinating article, written back in 1992.
I'd like to see this written again today.

25 Greatest Guitar Solos

I'd add to that list the solo by Duane Allman on the song "Dreams"
off the first Allman Brothers Band album.
The best slide guitar piece ever.

My own favourite Rush/Freewill. Also very fond of the feedback symphonies of JAMC and Curve. I've no knowledge of 60's & 70's guitar music (except they wore the guitars higher on the chest and occasionally dowsed them in petrol/set them alight). Must have been cold on stage.

Slash's effort from the middle of November Rain gets my vote. A lot of G n' R's early work contains some excellent fretwork. Then Hendrix's Voodoo Chile, and Van Halen's Eruption, in my opinion. I'd need a week to think this one through properly.

Lost the album years ago and heard this for the first time in ages last night, part of a film soundtrack. Then up pops this thread.

Anyway no list would be complete without something by Jerry Douglas.

Jimmy Hendrix hands down. Especially his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

Just been watching Jack Bruce on TV :

"The function of the bass player is to make the rest of the band sound better than they really are".
