Fucking hate guitar solos, so none of them.
Am I allowed to give a serious answer?
Aye, lets. Guitar solos rule!
Always loved the weird swelling buzzsaw solo in Cruel as well
Thanks. As you’ve probably seen in the Mellon Collie hot takes thread I’m not a fan of solos that are just there for the guitarist to show off his technical skills. I like it when they actually add something to the song. I feel John Frusciante I very good at this and I particularly like the solo in I Could Have Lied.
Damn, forgot that song existed. That was one of the solos I learned back when I was learning to play guitar. Blast from the past!
I think my favourite solo is the one in Nirvana’s Milk It
My serious answer is this:
Because it’s the perfect balance of technically cool but also really nicely phrased and not over the top.
Because it is a bit over-the-top widdly widdly but it kind of keeps ramping up and is amazing.
Prince is one of the few who can indulgently shred and keep it tasteful
in accordance with everything else Prince did during his lifetime
Don’t know the exact answer but it is probably something John Frusciante did
Any of the solos that don’t involve Billy Corgan
@JMascis to thread
I love his solos in the song Get Me. It seems like the sort of over-the-top thing you’d hate but it’s just incredible
Enjoyed Jonny Greenwood’s solos when he still did them.
The one in Glory Box by Portishead
