O.K. Here is one of my picks.

The guitar solo from Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. You have to experience this song live as it is etheral and mesmorizing. One of the best solo's I ever heard and learned how to play.

Still one of the best concerts I have ever seen live.
As magicians we create what onlookers call magic. If they truly believe in what we have created for them to witness then magic is real!!!

For my taste I'll go with just about any song Jeff Beck played on, The Stray Cats, Rock This Town, with Brian Setzer, and maybe something Chet Atkins played on.

Did Chet do many tunes Smile Smile

In addition to the aforementioned Albert Lee, don't forget Jerry Reed (who unfortunately is VERY sick now).

And Ralph Mooney is king of the pedal steel guitar.

Hi Mike, I'm sure your kidding about if Chet played many tunes. Besides putting out dozens of his own albums, I think in his day, he played with just about everyone who was anyone in country music. That's the first I heard about Jerry Reed being Ill. You right, he's a heck of a guitar player. As a couple of wild card great guitar players for country music I think I might toss in Roy Clark and Glen Campbell.

Yes, Dr. D. I have virtually all Chet's music. I first saw Chet introducing a young Jerry Reed in Saratoga Springs, NY back in 1969 when Chet was touring with Floyd Cramer and Boots Randolph. And since then I've been trying to (not too successfully) pick guitar like Reed.

http://video.aol.com/video-detail/amvets......14081509 shows Jerry Reed at home receiving the silver helmet award from a veteran's organization. Be prepared it's very emotional.

Hi Mike. Wow !, Just watched the video, your right, very touching. Looked like he was having a real tough time breathing, I hope he can finish the album. That must of been a heck of a show back in 69. Chet's always been amazing, and it would be pretty hard to find a better Sax player than Boots. My son and I are huge Paul Revere and the Raiders fans. Paul just turned 70, and he's still out touring. He also does a ton of stuff for the veterans. They have several CD's, and DVD's they sell after thier shows and they donate every penny to various veteran's groups. They have a great web site, check it out sometime.
Thanks much, Bob.

One word, Buckethead! If you don't know who this guy is look on youtube. Nevermind the goofy mask and bucket he wears, he's a prodigy.

I'm shocked no one has mentioned November Rain.

Bob Dylan gave the highest praise to Jimi Hendrix when he made the statement that he prefered the Hendrix version over his own.

If you are going to list guitar players, one of the very best is GLEN CAMPBELL.
Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

Did you catch Dweezil's "Zappa Plays Zappa" tour?

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Didn't catch it.
Wish I could've.

Zappa is my hero.
I wish he was still around so we could get his take on current events.
I would be very interested to hear what he would say about our leadership.

And what a guitarist!
WOW!

Baby Snakes.
So sorry I soiled your precious eyes.

Unfortunately Jerry passed away yesterday.

No-none has mentioned Dire Straits and M Knopfler?

He provided me with the best two hours of my life back in May last year.

Sultans of Swing does it for me.

I could write a 20 page essay on the following clip:

Somehow it reminds me of some of those magic exposure tutorials.

Cemetary Gates by Pantera. Solo by Dimebag Darrel. No other solo can touch it.
