I'm still very happy with my list from the previous thread, so I'll just quote that.

Is there a such thing as "One" best solo of all-time?

Maybe there's such a thing and if there is, this certainly has a place as being ONE of the greatest lead runs of ALL TYME!!!

(the middle part is where it shines)

Yea Ron...

after going through a few times, I managed to get 76 of them. I missed all the Metal stuff except Hells Bells..... I played most of those songs at one time or another in many local bands and in the studio as back up. Not having played seriously for 17 yrs, makes me want to get back into it abit.


PS: I would have included "Hotel California" and dumped a lesser known riff.. but thats my opinion...
