Best guitar solo piece of all time?
So... what is your favorite guitar solo piece of all time? It can be solos in songs, but I am aiming for things like Scuttle Buttin by SRV (my favorite) or Eruption by Van Halen!

Lemme give you my top 5:
Steeler - Hot On Your Heels... Cuz if Eruption gets to be in the running, then Hot On Your Heels is Eligible too
The 3 minute intro is one of the best solos ever
Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force - Black Star
Before shredding became mindless fret masturbation, Yngwie and the neo-classical metal movement was amazing
Megadeth - Lucretia
Marty Friedman's solo starts at 2:15, and then Dave Mustaine's starts at 2:56 until the song ends...
Ozzy Osbourne - Mr. Crowley
Crazy Train gets all the love, but honestly Crazy Train can't even grasp one iota of the amazingness in Mr. Crowley... Both Randy Rhoads solos are amazing.
John 5 - Pulling Strings
The best way to describe this song is bluesy rockabilly metal... Also John 5>Buckethead
