Have you heard the live version of 'Big Love'?
It's amazing and the section from 1.24 - 2.05 is so intense.

Lindsey Buckingham is one of the great guitarists, Johnny Marr is pretty good too

'More than words' by Extreme is simple but brilliant.
'The River' by The Tea Party is utterly sensational.

Why the high domination of the modern guitar? Such a narrow point of view????
In which case, Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici when Violetta sings.
Or how about Lucia Pop in THAT aria in The magic flute? Breathtaking.

Motorhead's "Ace of Spades". One of the most iconic rock tracks ever. The opening 20 seconds practically defines a genre.
Fantastic - if that's your thing (and it is mine!) is there a better opening 20 seconds?
Probably not even my fave Motorhead, but the opening riff, awesome!!!!
Dave Gilmour's first solo in Comfortably Numb (well, 30s but close enough).
What about Chris Rhea's solos on Road to Hell?
That's the snag; the opening riff, the drums, the first lyrics. Not my favourite Motorhead track (I think "1916" is, which handily deals with CSJF's observations into the bargain) but it's one of the great tracks of modern music full stop. IMO obviously!

Dont get me wrong, I enjoy very much modern rifts etc, but there is so much more out there, early modern 50's and 60's rock and roll, country, jazz and classical . . . Its why I dig around on Spotify a lot, so much one has heard but not knowing where it comes from . . . one often falls over musical gems . . . which one would otherwise miss, broadening the mind?
Couldn't agree more CJSF, I've been listening to a wide variety of music for about 30 years now. Was fortunate enough to see Scottish Opera's acclaimed Ring Cycle over three Edinburgh International Festival's, a fan of Radio 3's Late Junction for a while, Tom Robinson on 6 Music, the artists that came out of Peter Gabriel's WOMAD, other classical, minimalist or atonal music such as that from Philip Glass, Schoenberg or Stockhausen and various other bits and pieces.

How can I have never heard these two songs before? WOW!
Awesome Give them all of your money!
"Movement in Still Life" and "This Binary Universe" by BT are great albums, "One Time for all Time" and "The Destruction of Small Ideas" by 65 are a good starting point

I'll check them out. Cheers.
Just listened to it - the thing is, within the first 20 seconds in, you're there - you've got it all, the riff, the attitude, the whisky. Yes, it rocks.
Fave track by Motorhead is No Class. Again, first 20 seconds, there's no messing around, you're there!!!
