yeah, that = :snore:


here are my personal favorites:



Dave Gilmour (from Pink Floyd) - "Time"

Paul McCartney (from the Beatles) - "Taxman" (yes, Paul played that, not George)



Joe Morello (from the Dave Brubeck Quartet) - "Take Five"

John McEntire and John Herndon (from Tortoise) - "Seneca"



Anybody who can play it - George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" (which I'm also going to nominate right now as "greatest song ever written")

Again, anybody who can play it - Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 3 in D Minor

Thelonius Monk - "'Round Midnight"

Dave Brubeck - "Theme From Mr. Broadway"

Billy Joel - "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant"

I'm going to have to stop with that one before I really get carried away. :lol:



Charlie Parker - "Night in Tunisia" (by Paparelli and Gillespie)

John Coltrane - "Resolution"


I think that's enough for now, as there's too many Miles Davis for me to go through before I can pick a favorite trumpet solo. :P

more guitar solos which I personally enjoy playing, and think deserve recognition:


Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven (Jimmy Page) (I know it's a bit of a cliché to list this, but well, it's just brilliant)

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb (David Gilmour)

The Strokes - The Modern Age (Nick Valensi)

Oasis - Champagne Supernova (Live, pre-2000) (Noel Gallagher)

Radiohead - Just (Jonny Greenwood)

even though it probably isnt considered a solo, i love the who's my generation bass line, cos theres a part where you can only hear the bass, its pretty sweet.


alone together, by the strokes, has an awesome guitar solo by nick valensi, i really like it.

I love the solo from Time by Pink Floyd. I convinced my band to learn it just so I could hear it "live-ish"... There's a few other Pink Floyd ones that are really good, none of which I can think of at the moment... ;\... Haven't listened to a lot of PF for quite a while. I'll try to listen to some tonight as I'm sure David Gilmour did a lot of great solo's, particularly on The Wall.
