Best solo ever

Postby Fakeblue » Mon Jul 10, 2006 5:25 am

What is your favorite guitar solo in Metal ?

Mine is Marty Friedman's solo in Megadeth 'Tornado of Souls'

Dude,
you cant ask that question :D :lol: its like the most evil question in the world when your a fan of Randy Rhoads, Jake E Lee, Paul Gilbert, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, Dave Murray, Eddie Van Halen, Brian May etc etc.

I really cannot answer it fairly so ill categorize it.
My fave in song solo is always going to either Mr Crowley or Crazy Train.
My favourite introductary solo is Trilogy by Yngwie.
My favourite outro solo is Bark at the moon.
My favourite solo song is probably Trilogy by Yngwie, or possibly Black Star.
My favourite live solo is Suicide Solution Tribute ofcourse.

Any more categories put forward and ill answer ;)

One solo that has grown on me lately is Dimebags solo
in Panteras Cemetary Gates :twisted:

... then there's that Pantera song ... Floods :D

I could sit here and come up with 1000+ solos I love.

He's the guitarist for Extreme.

My favorite solo THIS WEEK is Jake's at the end of Love Don't Mean A Thing. I guess that's the outro? (I'm not a musician, so I don't know the proper terminology).

Ho man, Becker is amazing. Have you listened to what he did with Friedman in Cacophony ? It was sensational. Has someone heard about JAson lately ? Is he getting better with lou gherags disease ? His story really made me feel down. I love him.

LOl :D Yeah you're right it was evil. I too have the same feeling when I'm asked 'what is your favorite movie'. I always answer 'I don't have just one but several favorite movies'. But quite surprisingly, when it comes to solos, Friedman is way ahead of everybody with 'Tornado Of Souls'. I think Rhoads stands in the second place with Mr Crowley solo. God that solo is almost a 'mini song'.

That's a cover song isn't it ?

I remember the song 'psychoholiday' from Pantera. Quite good. Then I didn't get to hear their new stuff. I just heard one of them got shot at some texas show...uuuuuuuh evil cowboys ! :D
