    Default Best Rock Solo

    Inspired by the best rock riff, here's a the "best rock solo" thread. Post away.

    One of my favourite guitar solo's
    [YOUTUBE="tkJNyQfAprY"]Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb[/YOUTUBE]

    One of my favourite bass solo's, and definitely my all time favourite bassist.
    [YOUTUBE="TVl39LBZGMw"]John Entwistle - 5:15[/YOUTUBE]

    Best keys solo (This guy is insane).
    [YOUTUBE="jDsvZGM1vD8"]Rick Wakeman[/YOUTUBE]

    Drums would've easily gone to Zepp's great Moby Dick, if this guy didn't get a billion extra credits for showmanship.

    No rock solos really come to mind for me, but Victor Wooten's bass solo in DMB's live performance of #41 is something I love listening to. He has a wonderful sound.

    Slipknot, dude? Seriously?

    HINT: "Difficult to play" =/= "Good"


    And OF COURSE some NT posts a Malmsteen video.

    Artistry doesn't revolve around playing faster than everyone. It's a combination of technique and expressiveness, the latter of which Mr. Malmsteen and that Slipknot dude have little to none.

    Who's next guys, Michael Angelo Batio?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
