yea good one, there is a lot more stuff which is not included in this list. Buckethead has some awesome solo´s, and where is Thin Lizzy? Ac/DC? Iron Maiden? Slayer? Rory Gallagher? The Who? even some more recent bands as Alter Bridge, Joe Bonamassa, My Morning Jacket or (am i allowed to say it with my profile Pic?) Avenged Sevenfold are not included

I have really no problem with all the solo's in this poll, all very great and awesome. but i hate the fact that it is a lot of repetition. I really love Jimi Hendrix, Clapton and Page from the deepest part of my heart, but 2 solo's would have been enough and others could have been included.

Thats why i'm really delighted that for example Stranglehold and Reelin in the Years are in the list.

The fact that Corgan is on here but Second Heartbeat (A7X) isn't is depressing to me (I could have named 10s of other songs to add)

When it comes down to it how do you write an intro solo that the bass line follows is as good as its gets. This solo has all the fuel it takes to burn up the horizon and beyond. The wah wah is the jet engine that cannot be surpassed. There have been countless of guitarist trying accomplishing it. But did they not even get on the same level of it mirroring. He made the wah wah popular something countless guitarists have tried. It basically became the lazy guitarist tool not used as an effect. Sad this effect never was utilized right.

You Gotta Be Kidding Me! Todays match-up might be the most uneven duel in history! Why the Hell is Billy Corgan`s solo included in the "64 greatest solos of all time"?
