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

Akkerman - 8' 50" into this
Gilmour's solo in Comfortably Numb. Spine-tingling humanity.
Another one for Thunderstruck, and also Back In Black - you're not a real guitarist until you can play both of those
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.
Judas Priest, Between The Hammer & The Anvil
Alice Cooper, The World Need Guts!

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 !
Agreed on the Weld version of Cortez
Funkadelic Maggot Brain, another stonking opening
Oops , forgot to add She does it right,Dr Feelgood, Wilko at his best
Me likes. :grin:
