There are five different types of guitar solos, the beautiful, the mesmerizing, the masterful, the powerful, and the dirty. In each of these categories, my favorite guitar solos are Marooned (by Pink Floyd), Maggot Brain (by Funkadelic), Red House (by Jimi Hendrix, live at Randall's island), Child in Time (by Deep Purple), and I Heard Her Call My Name (by The Velvet Underground) respectively.

Honorable mentions include Peel that Paint (by Gentle Giant), Spoonful (by Cream), Willie the Pimp (by Frank Zappa), Viola Lee Blues (by The Grateful Dead), Dark Star (by The Grateful Dead), Time (by Pink Floyd), Yours Is no Disgrace (by Yes, the Yessongs version), Firth of Fifth (by Genesis), Width of a Circle (by David Bowie, live at the Hammersmith Odeon), Warning (by Black Sabbath), Mr. Crowley (by Ozzy Osbourne), Dazed and Confused (by Led Zeppelin, live versions), and Whole Lotta Love (by Led Zeppelin, live versions).

As you can probably tell, I really like guitar solos.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Have you ever heard the one-song version of Pigs On The Wing with a connecting guitar solo?

Ben Howard's "Promise," I think, is a guitar solo.

Not really. I listened to while doing some other stuff. When it cuts to only the guitar, the guitar doesn't deviate from the chorus. Listen to this, guitar solo starts at around 4:36

I hadn't, but I just listened to it. David Gilmour's guitar sound is the most beautiful one I've ever heard.

That was actually Snowy White, who was later in Roger's Bleeding Heart Band.

His sound almost directly parallels Gilmour's then. Although, if he was regularly covering Pink Floyd songs, that would explain it.

I didn't like this. It didn't have creativity, he was just hitting the same two notes over and over to a boring beat, or doing some kind of scale

Not just the great skill set, but the hair, the stance and big Marshall stacks signify a true guitar God ;}

My favorite rendition of Rachmaninov's Vocalise. I <3 Dessay.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

I would have to go for:
1) Jimmy Page, Stairway to Heaven for an extremely well crafted solo with his trademark ability to seamlessly cross from one completely different section to another whilst building a cohesive piece of music.
2) Jimmy Page, You shook Me. The first Led Zep album recorded in one session virtually.
Presumably done on a Telecaster the solo comes in last and really cuts in screaming with plenty of reverb. A great contrast to the main riff which is perhaps about the dirtiest sound ever recorded by a guitar.
3) George Harrison, Something....Pure, controlled and restrained as was typical of George's style. Apparently it took him 2 weeks to to get it to his satisfaction.
4) Buckethead...look at this guy go, with a fixed expression on his face and a KFC bucket on his head. He is the master of the (momentary) kill switch which you can see mounted near the bottom of his Les Paul.

I know all of these except Buckethead. I love David Gilmour's work
