I was listening to my local progressive radio station 95.9 FM Pirate Rock and Led Zeppelin's "Dazed & Confused" from their first album ('68) blasted on air waves! Absolutely the best guitar solo by "The Extrordinaire Jimmy Page" hands down! It ranks up there with Jimi Hendrix' "Voodoo Child" from the "Electric LadyLand" album!
So what is you favorite rock guitar solo(s)?

Way too many. But for starters, I like the twin solos by Duane Allman/Dickey Betts in "Blue Sky" by the Allman Brothers.

You guys have obviously never heard me play! Oh, wait, you're talking PROFESSIONAL. Well, I did do the Browns team picnic one year. Got paid a fried bologna sandwich and a signed 8x10 of Reggie Rucker...I'm kidding...

Where would you even start to begin with a question like that? Hotel California...More Than a Feeling...Kenny G's Songbird....

It's all good...

Classical Gas Was And Still Is A Great Piece Of Music.

Almost Anything Played By Studio/Solo Artist Brent Mason.

Howard Roberts On Anything From The 50's, 60's 70's etc.

Tommy Tedesco Who Was A Monster Player And Recorded Some Of The Best Solos For TV And Films.

Grant Green, Johnny Smith, That George Benson Kid...

... And Of Course I Cannot Forget The Beloved Wes On Everything.

I Guess You Get My Point.

God Blessed All Of These Individuals With A Beautiful Gift.

Any Guitar Solo They Played Was Their Best.

Anything that comes from Warren Haynes. If you love rock guitar, and do not yet know the genius that is Warren, you are severely out of the loop. You may not dig the styles of some bands he's in (recently The Dead and The Allman Brothers Band simultaneously) - but his own band Gov't Mule is beynod amazing. Any time Warren gets to let loose, it's slide rock heaven. Add the voice of a true bluesman, and wow. After years of touring and hundreds of concerts, the only band that can get me away from my toddler for a night now, would be the Mule.

I also have to give props to Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd.

And OK, I'm a nerd, but the solo in Phish's "Maze" by Trey Anastasio is the best sequence of building tension and release I've ever heard.

But come on, all these posts and no love for Frampton? Do you feel like we do. All 14 minutes. OK, the last 5.

Guitar Magazine did a "50 worst solos" a while ago. Maybe it was 100. All I can tell you is this: Ace Frehley ranked many times.

The introduction to B. B. King's performance of "Night Life" live on Austin City Limits. I think it's from this performance, but I can't be certain:

Our local college station played it one afternoon on my drive home. I had to pull over, because my eyes were welling up with tears. So I cried like a girl, so what? Shut up.

I haven't heard Classical Gas in a long time. A friend used to play it.

Hotel California always brings back memories.

Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.
