    What are the best solos you`ve ever heard?

    My personal:

    Symphony X - Heretic, The Divine Wings of Tragedy, Seven, Sea of Lies, Bastards of the Machine, The Walls of Babylon

    Iron Maiden - Lord of Light, The Nomad, Aces High, The Mercenary, No More Lies, Seventh Son of the Seventh Son

    Metallica - My Friend of Misery, Phantom Lord

    OverKill - Ironbound, Goodnight

    Nightwish - Crownless

    Judas Priest - Painkiller

    Dream Theater - A Rite of Passage, The Shattered Fortress (intro), Octavarium (intro)

    I don`t include SX intros, because 90% of them is amazing. I will add more songs and bands later, because now I don`t remember titles.

    Lepond's bass solo in the beginning of Awakenings is pretty great. Also Rullo's drums in Frontiers and Death of Balance.

    Easily Devin Townsend's Deep Peace. Incredible emotional solo in an incredible emotional song on an incredible emotional album - Terria.

    my favorite guitar solo is this one (listen to the entire thing including the build-up for "maximum effect" ;))


    this guitar solo is also sick as hell, and delivered live too (2:30 onward for solo)


    the violin solos in this song

    Passengers is a slick album. I could also mention "The Gap is Too Wide" by Mostly Autumn.

    I have way too many to list...one that sticks out in my mind right now is the one on Options & Opinions, from Geoff Mann's Second Chants. I don't actually know who plays it...maybe Marc Cately.

    Can't find a youtube video of it, might upload one myself once I get access to the album. It's like a weird Robert Fripp/Steve Hackett mashup, totally beautiful

    The Wizard by Al Di Meola. Those are some serious chops the last 2:30 of that song.

    3 come to mind for me instantly, in order:

    Reckless Fable's (aka Steve Vai) solo in Bob Harris' tune "Western Vacation"

    I'll just name a few, I feel this list could go on and on.

    - Ending solo in Venus Isle by Eric Johnson (can't find it on youtube sorry)

    - (Per Nilsson's solo, 3:30)

    - (1:20, holy fucking shit)

    The last 2 were probably my favorite solos when I was just starting guitar. 10 years later, I still think they're awesome.

    - (Vito Bratta's solo, 2:18)

    - (guest solo by some unkown guy, 1:27)

    Got to say I enjoyed immensely most of you guys' picks.
