    Default EVH nominated for greatest guitar solo of all time-guitarist

    Looks like Eruption and Beat It got nominated for this thing by Guitarist Magazine. I almost voted for Under A Glass Moon by Petrucci but apparently Eruption has like 3% of the vote? The biggest thing I fail to understand is why Blackbird by Alter Bridge is so far in the lead...its like an ok solo but it is not amazing.
    I voted for eruption as it seems to be criminally underrated in this poll.

    For reference, here is the Alter Bridge song.

    Out of all of those solos, only two occurred within the last decade, Alter Bridge's "Blackbird," and John Petrucci's "Hollow Years" from the 'Live at Budokon' album. The Dream Theater album came out in 2004.

    I'm sure relevancy and currentness are the biggest factors in Alter Bridge being at the top.

    Actually the Blackbird solo (which is great) is in 2 parts - one by Kennedy the other by Tremonti. Which one is being voted for? ;-)

    I donno. Mark Tremonti? He's not part of the A list of guitar players, not even the B list... he's probably C or D on a good day.
    The first 3 or 4 notes of "Captain Nemo" by Michael Schenker would probably represent a greater guitar achievement than anything Tremonti has done in his career, and I'm not even talking about "Eruption" or other masterpieces. 'Em polls are loco!
