One may call the guitar solo of "Constant Motion" fast wankery, but I love it. It is extremely impressive and has some great parts in it.

Hold on a minute...McLaughlin has a version of that song?!
You've got to be kidding me.

Under a Glass Moon, Another Day, Home, Lines in the Sand, Glasgow Kiss, and actually a song off their last album called Lost Not Forgotten all have great solos.


Thanks for injecting some sanity into this little JP debate! :tiphat:

there are more knowledgeable and bigger king crimson fans than me... so they're also welcome to make a list or at least suggestions... but i'll try to come up with something later today... (-:

that would be nice, because he's high on the guitarist list but, But don't see any performance by bim on any greatest solo, riff, or overall performance list, No albums with him on greatest guitar albums, so I find it dificult to check him out. Untill now i've only heard Red and In the Court of the Krimson King.

and this


which I think is a great song!!!

his album with giles and giles has some stunning guitar work.



and my personal favorite, though it doesnt feature much and it's only a 150 second song. but it's sweet as anything.

St. Elmo's Fire from Another Green World features Fripp on guitar. That surely belongs on his list.

thanks for all the suggestions, they're all good... yousha, i love giles, giles, and fripp, too!!
i haven't had enough time to finish this... but here's a beginning...


with Giles, Giles & Fripp... at this stage Fripp's playing draws mostly from jazz and classical techniques/concepts.
Suite No.1 (alt picking tour-de-force)
Erudite Eyes (one of the earlier instances of fripp stretching out a bit)
Tremolo Study in A
Make It Today (features a brief jazz solo)

with King Crimson
Fracture (i think fripp himself has more-or-less referred to this as his greatest guitaristic achievement)
Starless
Sailor's Tale


various collaborations, solo, and session work
Heroes - David Bowie
Wave - David Sylvian
Evening Star - Eno/Fripp
Super Heathen Child - Grinderman
Water Music II
Baby's On Fire - Brian Eno
Nil Recurring - Porcupine Tree
Angel Gets Caught in the Beauty Trap - No-Man (features only a brief fripp solo, but worth mentioning here because it's a great tune overall)
Windows Vista OS (-:

Elephant Talk is a MUST for Fripp.

I know its a cliche by now, but 21st Century Schizoid Man is probably the first thing I'd have put down for Fripp.

Absolutely.
"Cliched" or not, it's quite deserving.

The solo in Elephant Talk blew me away as well...
