I have now :rockout: Another one on the 'to buy' list :grin:
Electrocompaniet EMC 1 UP , Monarchy Audio DIP, Electrocompaniet ECD 1 dac , EC4.8 preamp , 2x AW180 monoblock power amps , PMC PB1i speakers . Thousands of Cd's .
Rush/Hemispheres/La Villa Strangiato: basically the whole song. For me it shows that Alex Lifeson is one of rock's most underappreciated guitar players.
OSI/Blood/Stockholm: starting at 4:50. best riff ever heard.
Synology DS214+ >> Rega DAC | Rega RP3 >> Rega Brio-R >> Chord Odyssey 2 >> PMC twenty.23
Camel - ICE .
Pure emotion !
Joe Bonamassa - Intro to Mountain Time/India at the Royal Albert Hall . Love it!
Steve Osman - Harlequin
John Squire (Stone Roses) - Take your pick from 'Second Coming'
Steve Hackett - Firth of Fifth (Genesis)
I don't like Franz Ferdinand. They're just a mediocre modern rock/pop band but this one song of theirs has a really catchy guitar riff in the middle which is great. Listen to the bit from 0.46 - 1.13
Hi-Fi - Nakamichi Dragon AV1 > AVI DM5 > AVI subwoofer
Head-Fi - Epiphany Acoustics EHP-O2Di > Sennheisser HD700
Portable - Sony NWZ-A847 > Westone UM3x
<dives in without rading any previous posts>
memo to WHF whycna't we have auto spellchuck check?
It's a long way to the top (ACDC in case ya didn't know Jack)
All Right Now - now if anyone really knows how Kossof played this on any day of the week, well hey! And no, he doesn't use the pinky.
and the whole of Highway to Hell (album that is not just song).
J River MC19 -> Hegel H160 -> QED XT40 -> ATC SCM40 Mk2
I'm amazed that nobody has mentioned Hendrix, Cream or Peter Green - perhaps it's a generational thing?
Marantz PM8005 / SA8005 / KEF R700s / AKG K702
Clapton and Hendrix have been mentioned I believe.
I missed the Hendrix reference then. I saw a reference to Layla, which is a great tune, but hard to see how this would come close to the top in the Clapton canon.
PS "Guitar heroes at the BBC" is on BBC4 from time to time and is really worth watching.
In terms of tracks/riffs:
Hendrix - All along the watchtower
Cream (Clapton) - Spoonful from Wheels of Fire live album
Green - Black Magic Woman from whatever Fleetwood Mac collection you may have.
PS To name-drop, I met Green and Clapton in 196x when my best friend's dad was redecorating John Mayall's house. Sadly I didn't know who they were at the time!

Maybe, but then no one has mentioned Vivaldi yet, so guess you could be right

Good call. Thunderstruck is one of my all time favourite songs.
Covenanter wrote:Hendrix - All along the watchtower
Another good call. 'All Along the Watchtower' is a classic.
I also like 'Voodoo Child', 'Purple Haze' and 'Foxey Lady' by Hendrix too.
Jimmy Page - Dazed And Confused Seattle 75. A mere 45 minutes long. Genius. Otherwise, Since I've Been Loving You.
Richie Blackmore - Catch The Rainbow, Nagoya 1978. Otherwise, Child In Time.
Dave Gilmore - Money 9th May 1977 Oakland. Otherwise, Comfortably Numb.
Tony Iommi - Heaven And Hell Sao Paulo 2009. But for riffs, all of them!!!
Brian Tatler - Am I Evil. Actually that's 5 solos.
