RE: What's your favourite guitar riff or solo?

For solos?

 

Cynic's 'King Of Those Who Know' - Paul Masvidal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSmAacEpt-Y (2:10 & 4:15)

 

Opeth's 'Deliverance' - Peter Lindgren http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTSkYuKoqPE (4:01)

 

Animals As Leaders' 'Weightless' - Tosin Abasi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw7j1czfVuo (whole song's virtually a solo, but 0:43, 2:13 & 4:22 stand out) Also notable for Navene Koperweis who is the best drummer I've ever seen play live, and I've seen a lot of drummers. Smile

 

In fact, if it's guitar prowess you're after, you might as well just tap 'Tosin Abasi' into Youtube.

Another one for Thunderstruck, and also Back In Black - you're not a real guitarist until you can play both of those Smile

One of my favourite solos is Angus in You Shook Me All Night Long, and Slash in Fall to Pieces from Velvet Revolver's Contraband.

Good choice  :grin: there are so many brilliant Akkerman solo's to choose from :rockout:

I have seen him live many times and also met him several occasions , the most memorable was when my brother bought his Gibson Johnny Smith from him backstage at the Mick Jagger centre in Dartford , apparently he wanted the money to put towards another motorcycle  !
