Funny they mention cartoon soundtracks some of that playing is mind boggling during the chase scenes.

Gary Moore was just the greatest.Hadn't seen this version before so thanks for posting it.
Not all of this solo is "slow"
Gary is my all time favorte player.

Good artist borrow. Great artist steal! Where in the hell is Boston's More than a Feeling? Man dat chit should be a national anthem for some country. Seems like Boston gets the shaft on all these list's. Oh well

You're breaking my heart,

Leslie West - "Theme From An Imaginary Western"

A lot more definitive Page to choose from than "Since I've..": "Tangerine", "Ramble On", "What Is And What Should Never Be".

"Bell Bottom Blues" is classic, but "Sunshine of Your Love" came first.

@Riotboy: George played "Something." He asked his friend Eric to play the "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" solo.

Ummmm, for SRV the video you're showing is " LENNY" not "RIVIERA PARADISE".

This should be titled "Top Ten Slow Guitar Solos 30 years and older".

Except for Stevie Ray, this is just too lopsided.

I love Pink Floyd and David Gilmour as much as the next guy, but before you nominate the solo from "Crazy Diamond" you need to go listen to Duane Allman's solo on Boz Scaggs' "Someone Loan Me a Dime." It appears that Gilmour stole the solo completely for "Crazy Diamond."

some reverb and a mound of mourning for his detached former bandmate, Syd Barrett, to create the melancholic opening to the nine-part centerpiece from 1975’s Wish You Were Here. Supposedly, Barrett visited Abbey Road Studios in London during the album’s recording, but as the story goes Gilmour, ralph lauren shirts,wholesale nike shoes,nike soccer cleats,abercrombie outlet,new era hats,oakley sunglasses,polo outlet

Didn't Bric Clapton play the solo on The Beatles "Something"?
