What about All Along the Watchtower > Stairway to Heaven? And though I'm a Gilmour fan, i must admit that there's no greater solo than Maggot Brain.

Heartbreak Hotel should be top 25 probably. Simplistic, but for the time, it was a big deal.

And lmao at Rock You Like A Hurricane being that high... :lol:

I agree with that too.
One is just great because it's an intense, adrenaline-raising solo. But not really 'great' or important in any way.

I dont either. But I guess it has lots of influence. Surely not Blackmore's 'best' solo though.


my estimation .. it is the direct timeline for its uniqueness and originality, as it becomes the template for the neo-classical style of playing that comes after ... Blackmore had started this sooner but this appears to be the soloing style in this song that takes hold for the legion of guitarist that started to copy and evolve the style .... as the solo follows Vivaldi’s harmonic progressions and further separates rock guitar from the blues and aligns itself closer to classical stylings and the attack from a violin approach of playing ... hence the Bach and Roll of Blackmore in the 60`s evolving to the Bach and Roll to the phrase neo classical .... the whole tune is filled with hints of Haydn, Henry Purcell, Bach and Vivaldi without directly copying and can be seen as having Baroque harmonic progressions as well ........ it is an amazing tune to dissect and look at all the styles intertwined into what is essentially a classical composition disguised as a rock tune ....Take care


I remember you posting an article about this on the old forums. Very interesting read. I believe one of the other classical influenced guitarists mentioned was Randy Rhoads, with one of his signature tunes Mr. Crowley. There are indeed some striking similarities.
Ludwig van Beethoven is actually my favourite classical composer, partly because of Ritchie. (Difficult to Cure from Finyl Vinyl :boohoo: )
Beethoven, the Blackmore of his time. (surely not the other way around eh)

Not sure if it's eligible because it may be too bluesy for the list, but what about "Still Got the Blues" by Gary Moore? It's one hell of a solo.

Nah - Much as I love it, we cant have a solo on the list where the guitarist was found guilty of plagiarising it.

If its something you're not aware of, heres the original (starts at 6:15)

Better scratch "Stairway to Heaven", then, and a whole bunch of other Zeppelin songs. Then there's Ritchie who was happy to admit that he stole the riff to "Black Night" from Ricky Nelson. Not that it's on the list, but it's worth mentioning.
