Guitar solos *sigh* They are an integral part of a metal tune most of the times and we've had our share of great musicians in that department. What are some of your favorite guitar solos? I'll start with a couple of mine... Criss Oliva - Ghost in the Ruins Criss was a fantastic player and could shred with the best of them but his sense of phrasing and melody it's what I liked about him best. This slow paced tune really lets him shine and I can hum this one by memory. The way he builds tension towards the end of it is amazing. Boy, is he sorely missed Andy LaRoque - Black Horsemen Andy is another fantastic player and again, he shines when it comes to melodic and "happy" stuff. The harmony on the outro section really lends itself to this style of playing and Andy does not dissapoint. These are just a couple of mine but I know everyone has tons of favorite solos. Let's share some!
