    I'd say Ice Cream Man. It's got a lot more going on - Wide stretch licks, more tapping, a few quick dives, and steps out of the pentatonic box a little more.

    I haven't properly re-learned the HFT solo since my early days of playing (it's on my list), but technically it's less complex or challenging than the Ice Cream Man solo. Doesn't negate that it's comprised of extremely well executed licks with fantastic timing and feel.

    All the solos in this tourney are amazing. But of the ones left HFT would be last on my list. I was more crazy about the solos in GGB and DDL's, back then....and now

    While Hot For Teacher is clearly the better song, Ice Cream Man has the superior guitar solo.

    While ICM is the superior guitar solo..... HFT solo is far more "ICONIC" in most peoples mind. This obviously comes from the super popular music video. Ed going down the table in Library while playing the solo. That is burned into every kid's mind from 1984. So I understand the votes for HFT.

    True, but we are allegedly the "Van Halen experts" here at the Links.

    Agreed. Some weren't around in 1978 to blown away by all the solos on the first record. Completely different experience from 1984 and it's vids.

    Correct !!!! By 1984 we were conditioned to have our minds blown by Eddie. But when the first record came out.... the solo to ICM.... HOLY SHIT !!
