    I'm a huge 80's rock fan. What one song do you think has the best guitar solo?

    For me "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns n' Roses is the best guitar solo.

    What say you?

    I've heard a couple, so I fluctuate between a good handful depending on what I like right at that moment, so, for the moment, I believe the best solo I've ever heard is a live recording of Little Wing and Third Stone From the Sun, (two hendrix songs) by Stevie Ray Vaughan. its perfect.

    Is this just 80's rock or can it be any time period?

    If it's any then I know of a really awesome solo.

    Sweet Child of Mine is awesome by the way.

    Nah I was just stating that I love 80's rock, and a lot of music in that time period has really good guitar solos. You can use whatever you want.

    There's so many, it's really hard to choose one. I love Slash in Sweet child O Mine as well, the one he does in November Rain is wicked as well.

    Others that I like are;

    David Gilmour in Comfortably Numb
    Eddie Van Halen in Beat It
    Eddie Van Halen in Eruption

    Then you have Angus Young that as many of them.

    To hard to choose one.

    Yep. Lots of good guitar solos by Slash/GNR especially those two mentioned above.

    Also While My Guitar Gently Weeps and some of Santana's songs.

    Oh well if it's anything then let's take a look at this, I've thought this was the most amazing solo ever for a long time now, I think I've posted it on GF before too.

    YouTube - John Mayer - Covered in rain (Original)

    It's in the middle of the song somewhere, and there's 2 of them, the second one is even better than the first one.

    Ohhh, this is tough, I don't think I can select just one!:laugh:

    Here's a few on my list:

    Carlos Santana - Black Magic Woman

    Layla - Eric Clapton

    November Rain - Guns n Roses

    Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

    Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

    And will definitely agree with BR on Van Halen's, "Eruption".

    wooly I am the woolrus

    I think my top three would be......

    1. Burn - Deep Purple (Ritchie Blackmore)

    2. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) {the first solo particularly} - Jimi Hendrix

    3. Domination - Pantera (Dimebag Darrell)

    It's so hard to pick only three, but i said i'll keep it at that otherwise i'll just keep goin! :p a whole lotta love for the other solos posted in this thread aswell.
