    Default what's sammy's best solo guitar song?

    I gotta go with either this Planets on Fire or the live version of Bad Motor Scooter where Sam and Gary Phil have a little battle. I like just about all the guitar parts on MTM as well.

    try to keep this limited to solo sammy stuff please, we know Ed's parts were great when sam was in VH.

    Good topic.

    I'd have to say There's Only One Way To Rock and Winner Takes It All have the best, most aggresive, solo's in Sammy's solo career.

    Sammy outdid himself with "When the Hammer Falls" and "Karma Wheel".


    "Open" ain't to damn shabby either.

    High Hopes is his best one. It should have been a VH song and it would have been a great one, but Sammy does a great job on that one.

    I stand corrected. That's a pretty blistering track, and it almost has Big Al's sound going on the skins there.

    What about the solo in "Dick in the dirt"? Brilliant stuff.
    And "3 Lock box" from Live Halleilujah is amazing......
    The outro solo is Sammy at his rockin' best.

    I thought this would be a good spot to point this out. I was watching the Japan 88 show not long ago and my brother was over. He walked in the room during One Way to Rock and said "WOW, I had no idea Sammy could shred like that!"

    High Hopes.

    Sam's a tremendous guitarist, but nothing even comes close to this one.

    I still love the solo from Heavy Metal.....the build-up to it...then that classic SCREAM!

    Other honorable mentions: 3 Lock Box, High Hopes, and.....let's not forget.....LET SALLY DRIVE!

    High Hopes has to be up there. However, Returning of the Wish is a song that I really dig the outro on as well.

    Yes, Returning of the Wish. Great tune, the outro is awesome. Great choices here, but now I'm going with that one.
