  • The most Beautiful guitar solos

    To you, what are the most beautiful guitar solos you've heard?

    There's been tons of recorded guitar solos over the years that kick ass and are classics, but only a few are truly beautiful. I mean, the ones that get you choked up and tears in your eyes. I get emotional when I hear these two:

    Little Wing by Hendrix:
    ">" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350">
    solo @ 1:40

    The Rover by Zeppelin:
    ">" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350">
    solo @ 3:14

    So beautiful, the way the solos go with the tunes...

    Come on guys, it's okay to share your feelings.

      I can't find a good video of "After the Ordeal" by Genesis. imo, that's the one where Steve Hackett really nailed it. Nothing flashy, but it soars.

          There are beautiful melodies and little solos throughout. Each note has its special place in this song.

          I figure everyone's going to post a pink floyd song so I might as well post my favorite.

          solo starts at 3:30


          EDIT: oh, and good call on Little Wing.

          I love everything about that song.

              Nice songs guys

              I really should check out some more Pink Floyd. I don't listen to them, but I like what I'm hearing

                I think I'll throw my vote to Comfortably Numb too. Overall just a beautiful song.

                But there are so many others, I'm just having a massive brain fade today I can't think of them.

                    In that case. Here's one I love.

                    And here's a really hauntingly beautiful one. Played by Jeff Beck on Roger Waters' solo album Amused to Death.

                    Youtube audio doesn't do either of them any justice, but you get the idea.
