The guitar solo is a practice with an almost mythical association within the genres of rock and pop. It is a valuable asset to the skilled musician – an opportunity to run away with the melody and transform it into a powerful statement of self expression and emotional tension at the song’s climax.
At the SGFC we have made it our business to recognize the very best in musical excellence. A good solo can make or break the soul of a song, and that is why we at the SGFC have prepared a list of the greatest 5 guitar solos ever performed.
5. Easy Lover – Phil Collins & Philip Bailey
4. Stairway to Heaven – Led Zepplin
3. Beat It – Michael Jackson
2. All Along the Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix
1. It’s in the Way That You Use It – Eric Clapton
