    Default New Guitar Solo

    How many of you would like to hear Ed play a completely new guitar solo. It has been the same thing for years and years. I would like to see something different or he could play eruption before you really got me, intruder before pretty women, Spanish fly before DOA, cathedral before secrets. Do something different for a change. Then maybe have a five minute spot with new tricks in his bag or solos from the Hagar era. What do you guys think?

    I have wondered this for 20 years. His original solo is great, nobody is disputing that. But for a genius like Ed, seems like he could put together something fresh and new that would have everybody talking. Why not do it? Surely Ed himself is bored of that piece.

    This is a great idea. Ed is my all-time favorite guitarist, but the solo bores me. I'd rather them tacked onto the songs, and I'm fine with skipping the Sammy-era licks.

    I'd rather hear another song than a long solo...

    When Eddie stopped being influenced by Holdsworth, the guitar world suffered. Love the guy but he has not pushed the envelope since 84. Therefore there isn't really anything new for him to do in his spotlight.

    Now I think it would be cool if he, Wolf and Alex kind of did an instrumental jam of a few ideas. I would much rather hear than his solo. Sort of like when they would jam Girl Gone Bad

    This jam idea is what I keep thinking would be cool and new in place if his solo spot. He can still do eruption right before YRGM

    This is probably most likely if it were to change, start off with 3 or 4 mins of the usual pieces then launch into a 4 or 5 minute jam before finishing off with Eruption. It would be killer.

    He did a cool blues thing in '84 accompanied by the bass and drums. Would love to see that again, and PLEASE no Cathedral.

    Back when Sammy was in the band his solo would include pieces of Mean Street. I think it would be cool if he did some Summer Nights, Sucker, Good Enough, 5150, Sammy era riffs as part of it...would love to hear pieces of those tunes.
    For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge the New England Fucking Patriots, Dallas Fucking Cowboys, New York Fucking Giants, Washington Fucking Redskins, Carolina Fucking Panthers, Tampa Bay Fucking Bucs, Florida Fucking Marlins, Atlanta Fucking Braves, New York Fucking Mets, Boston Fucking Red Sox, Boston Fucking Bruins, and New Jersey Fucking Devils.

    ( . Y . ) Boobs!

    Typically, Cathedral makes me go

    But on the 2012 tour, live, in the moment, when Ed was really on fire...the entire thing was awesome. I think he'll be able to capture our attention this time around, even with a solo that'll probably be the same as it was in 2012.

    Im sure he said in one interview years ago he would like to play the instrumental pieces before their respective songs. I would love that, Eruption before YRGM, Cathedral before Secrets, etc etc. I wouldn't need a solo spot if he did that. I think a 3 minute jam session would be cool in it's place, like the GGB jam mentioned earlier.

    It would be really cool if he found a cool way to string a bunch of the Hagar era riffs together. Especially if he could work in some extended bits with a few of them. . .like they did with 5150 on LWAN.

    I've heard it a million times and can understand why people bore of it. But as a guitar player heavily influenced by his playing, when he starts playing that live it's practically a religious experience for me.

    "Do you see the light?"

    "Yes! Yes! I see the light!"

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    A jam between Ed, Al, and Wolfie would be worth the price of admission as far as I'm concerned. Start with something along the lines of "Baluchitherium" and go from there.

    Yeah I see it like that. Would be killer.

    I'd be into seeing some of those thrown in. Maybe Pleasure Dome jam in there. BUT I doubt they would mix eras even just musically. Hmm
