    Lol, I feel the same about the HFT solo. I dont think it's the best on 1984, and probably not in my top 10 solos of the Dave era. Sure, its iconic, but a lot of that has to do with the visual and popularity of the MTV video.

    Perfect way to fade out the Fair Warning album... the tonality of that section sums the whole record up...

    One of Eddie's most menacing solos from arguably VH's most menacing album.

    ...and the Dave era guitar solo heavyweight champion of the world:

    "One Foot Out the Door"



    OFOTD 13
    HFT 6

    I honestly can't believe "Hot for Teacher" lost by that much of a margin and was hoping 1984 would get some kind of victory in one of these tourneys. And I really thought "I'm the One," "Jump," and "Beat It" had a good shot. Same with YRGM, ICM, and SGMAD. Glad "Stay Frosty" got pretty far, too. Anyways I knew it would come down to something versus a Fair Warning tune as always, but I thought it'd be HAIL or PCTS. With that said, I can still see how the song-and-album-ending "One Foot Out the Door" solo was the victor. "Menacing," "ferocious," and I think comparing it to "Eddie attacking the guitar" if I remember correctly were some of the great ways of describing it from some of the voters. There's that, some of his best tapping, melody, and whammy bar dives bombs from what most fans say his best guitar playing album so I'm good with it.

    Well I'm going on vacation for a week and when I get back we'll resume with the Sammy era.

    And thanks, Coulda, for all your help.

    Thanks for this! Looking forward to the Hagar era tournament.

    Maybe I have to learn the One Foot solo now.
