    Although certainly one of Ed's least "Van Halen-esque" solos, I would say 'Cabo Wabo' has the most stunning bit of lead work Eddie has committed to tape.

    I'm sure most people would disagree with (and possibly laugh at) me, but that's life.

    Maybe one of the factors is that the solo comes in right after Sammy sings "kissing the ground", and then Eddie proceeds to soar FAR above the ground throughout.

    I would have to say the solo from, So this is love?,. Some of Eddies solos, while still being amazing, go off and he is just ripping and they dont fit within the song as well as the solo from "So this is love" does.
    Lets Hope VH gets some Sensible Shoes that lead them back to Dave.

    Yes, the main solo is fairly easy (although very melodic), but there's some major key two-handed tapping toward the end of Dreams that is classic. It's probably a little more difficult than the main solo, even if by 1986 every metal guitarist was doing it, and it's still melodic-and fits the upbeat mood of the song perfectly.
