For those of you who don't like guitar solos, listen to Pink Floyd's "Time" once more, and reconsider your options.
Crazy. I was listening to "Time" last week, losing myself in what an amazing solo that really is. I've heard it a thousand times and never seriously paid attention. But, you're right. It's such a draw. The David Gilmour style of solo makes a solo worth its weight and more. He gives the notes a lot of room to breathe, his tone is to die for, outstanding sense of melody, on and on.
The typical rock solo gets masturbatory and technical.
I don't know why no one's mentioned Jimi Hendrix, since he's the guitarist's guitarist...
I never cared for Hendrix solos. I love the rhythms he produced, though.
