I vote for either Revelation Mother Earth or Mr. Crowley! OOPS!

Between these two solos Eddie wins by a landslide. Gary's solo sounds more like Page's Heartbreaker sloppiness.

Gary Moore because his melodic approach to shredding

As much as I like Gary Moore, I have to give it to Eddie. Killer tone and what were to become groundbreaking techniques, all rolled into one and a half minutes.

Something very reminiscent of Spinal Tap about this...

Gary Moore without a doubt.

Another example of a better take for Gary "Dirty Fingers". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTmTE2N_G3k

I'm going to weigh in for Gary based on his right hand technique over Eddie's legato approach. Gary had better "solo showcases" than this one though. For example, "End of the World" had an incredible intro worthy of inclusion here in this head to head matchup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Q0IVkyQ1OI
