Default Guitar solos & instrumentals: part 2

Solos:

1. Night Train, Paradise City, Locomotive - GNR (first 2 from 'Apetite for Destruction' & third from UYI2)
2. Lady Writer - Dire Straits (of course there are many more, but this is less talked about)
3. Coming Back to Life - Floyd (live version from 'Pulse' is nice, like this more for imagery than speed or complexity)
4. All Along the Watchtower - Hendrix (ditto about imagery, also check out the version with Dylan & Grateful Dead, this song is one of my faves)
5. Jump, Right Now - Van Halen (Jump has a cool keyboard solo too, Right Now has a even cooler music video)
6. Alive - Pearl Jam (thats my nod to the alternative genre)
7. Scar Tissue - RHCP (Mr. Frusciante leads this one with some neat slide work)
8. Whiplash, Fade to Black - Metallica (especially like the 2nd one)
9. Hangar 18 (yeah), Ashes in Your Mouth - Megadeth
10. Delivering the Goods - Judas priest

Of course there are many many more bands with skilled axemen that I either cant recall at present or have not listened to, so feel free to append to this list...

Instrumentals to follow in part 3...

Damn, how did I forget 'Time'? the intro with all the alarm clocks is really good 'show-off' stuff on home audio, have yet to try it on ICE . Show-off apart, it's a good song too.

To test the ICE or for that matter any Musicplayer I test it on these songs.
Eagles-Hotel california
A.r.Rahman- Chandralekha ( Movie soundtrack from a film called Chor chor in hindi and most probably Thiruda Thiruda in its native language.
A.r. Rahman- Vande mataram.
these songs especially the A.r.rahman ones have e exeptional good mix of Bass and High tones.

Default kicka** axework - deserves a separate mention

Wishbone Ash!

Picked up 'The Collection' this evening - pretty much reaffirms my belief that all the action was happening in the 70's...

Twin guitars: searing riffs, beautifully intertwined and some of the best solos I've heard in a long time, sounds years ahead of its time , truly 'progressive' rock. Some jazz influences, even a 'bluesy' track too...

Enjoying this so much right now on el cheapo Creative comp speakers hooked to my laptop, can't wait to hear it in the car

Lovers of rock and electric guitar - BUY IT RIGHT NOW!

Drums are quick and snappy, basslines well defined, melodic vocals - all in all, great for fast, light and dynamic speaker/sub combos

No takers for David Gray's album, White Ladder? One of my favourites at the moment.

If they prefix 'Dire' to 'straights', do we assume that 'dire' means dreadful more than desperate in this context?

Thanks, that sounds interesting. I need an album like this which can max my set-up out and brings the best of electric guitar and deep bass out. I love electric guitar music.

Have you heard the PF-The Wall, Live in Berlin?

I have the DVD, there is couple of pieces played by a fellas ( forgot their names), one on rhythm guitar and another on a bass guitar, those solos-rhythm solo then without stopping it get entwined with the bass guitar- it never fails to make my hair on my spine stand up.
