    I like Ed's work as much as anybody else, but there are some other solos that take me out to la-la land when I hear them - just constructed and phrased perfectly. Melody is the key. Here's a few that come to mind -

    Eagles - "Hotel California"

    Eagles - "After The Thrill Is Gone"

    Pink Floyd - "Comfortably Numb"

    Boston - "Hitch A Ride"

    Ritchie Blackmore w/Rainbow - Both "Anybody There" and "Snowman"

    White Lion - "When The Children Cry"


    I could ramble forever, but I'll start it off with those.

    Sweet child of mine even though I dont dig any post appetite G&R.

    I wont even dig into ed.

    Hell, no embarrassment there, bro. "Wait" is a killer too.

    I've worn that CD OUT a few dozen times. "Two Rivers" and "Where Were You" are fucking mesmerizing. That whole disc just flat-out rocks.
