Rick, your list is dead on for the most part. I'll take Achilles Last Stand over Stairway any day.. Where's Meeting of the Spirits, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, ? First time listener, good stuff !

I really enjoyed this video...our tastes are different however....Van Halen is technically beyond just about everyone but his music doesn't resonate with me, though I have a friend who ranks him number 1 by a mile. Anyway, here are some solos I like. They are not vituoso solos but musically they are perfect. Are you ready? ok, in no particular order: 1. the solo at the end of the Stooges 'search and destroy' 2. the solo in Hurdy Gurdy Man, a Donovan song though he didn't play the solo 3. the beginning of All the Young Dudes, by Mott the Hoople 4. The guitar solo in the Devil Came from Kansas, Procul Harem... 5. The guitar in Dear Mr. Fantasy, Traffic. 6. Motorhead solo, song of same name 7. I'm surprised you didn't have anything by Guns n Roses 8. Buckethead's live solo , Paradise City, MTV VMAs 9. many more that escape me.....

Sultans of swing should have been a lot higher NOTHING Sounds anything remotely like that, and Anything by Steely Dan, Chicago or even RUSH, could bounce. On a side note, was anybody else wondering if you were going to acknowledge "Since I've been loving you" by Led Zep?

A decent guitar solo on a decent song is the icing on the cake. The more complex solos like the one in 19th place; I have a massive amount of respect for the skill and knowledge of an artist to be able to put something like that together...but, at the same time, it's not really my cup of tea. Whereas I could listen to the solo for "Hey Joe" for hours!

I like your choices for your Top 20, but curiously absent were the the great solos of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts of The Allman Brothers.

I'm rather fond of George Harrison's guitar solos on Pure Smokey. I'm a rabid fan of George's. Not only his guitar playing, more so his soul. I play guitar. I've played guitar for over 40 years. I'm pretty damn good, actually. George's solos on Pure Smokey just kill me.

That guitar solo from the Gino Vanelli song does indeed delve into some foreign territory. Frankly, a bit too far, for my ears.

Could not agree with your choice. Cross roads by Eric Clapton to me is easily the most exciting guitar solo by probably the greatest solo guitarist of his time . Hendrix all along the whach tower must be among the greatest. The haunting beauty of out of reach by Peter Green mesmerized me and the incredible slow blues solo on marriage madness by Mick Taylor. Solos like free bird to me are just fast and repetitive. From a classical guitarists

Rick...luved the list...but come never mentioned the man who changed it all...Jimmie Hendrix! I'm disappointed in you...but not unappreciative. You Got to check out Stevie Ray Vaughans version of Jimmies " Voodoo Child" from Austin Texas. OMG. he plays Jimmie. Better than Jimmy on this one. You Got to include it on your Next list. Nice work 👍

if you really think about it...most of these styles grew out of Randy Rhodes RIP and and the very first person at putting classic scales into rock ,Brain Mays..these guys showed how speed with target on precise solos that can be mesmerized and played the same each time's not just a jam anymore... note -Eddie Vanhallan's style over swallowed these two guy who i think are responsible for all the well constructed heavy metal tones past and up coming (including Vanhallan back then) and now and still will influence the future of guitar players...what do you think I right? . and David Gilmore is the king of slow hand taste and feel...a little better at it than Clapton...

Great #1 Choice! Fully agree. And you're one HELL of a guitarist. But my personal favorite solos ( and as you stated, it's ALL personal), I love Mike Campbell's solos with the Heart Breakers. He can go from 100% bona fide surf guitar to blazing hot ( Runnin' Down a Dream) to Sublime. Mike can say more with a Three Note Solo (while laying out a full 1.5 bars before he even begins) than most guitarist's can get out of their whole repertoire.
