    Hot for Teacher.

    One Foot has some fierce playing, but HFT is better constructed, tighter, and more iconic.

    After long internal deliberation and intense audio analysis I've decided to go with:

    One Foot Out the Door

    While I admit that the HFT solo is more iconic and a better fit within its song, the OFOTD solo is just a blazing, angry, wild piece of shredding that is a better example of Eddie to the extreme...and I have more fun air-guitaring to it!

    I dont know why exactly, but I'm surprised HFT solo made it this far.

    I'm surprised One Foot looks could win this thing. I don't even think it's the best solo on Fair Warning, let alone of the entire Roth era.
