This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I just heard Don't Believe a Word by Thin Lizzy on the radio for the first time in ages. It reminded me what a kick-ass solo it has (one of my favourites).

What are some of your favourites?

One of my favorites is, I think, an odd one.

Have you got the Live in Rio DvD?

Wow. That solo is amazing seen live with multiple cameras. It's like each of the three is playing different songs.

Robert Fripp's solo in Starless (from King Crimson's Red)...endless build, then a cathartic cacophony leading into the epic coda.  He also pulled a fantastic, mind-numbingly knotty solo in the first version of Easy Money from the Great Deceiver box.

Richard Thompson's solo from the version of Can't Win on the More Guitar live CD, also found on the Watching the Dark box.
For fuck's sake, these are games, people.

And no one gives a fuck about your ignore list.

I'll also add Dave Gilmor's amazing solo in the live version of Comfortably Numb. Blimey.

Clapton, Layla. It's always been one of my favorite guitar bits, ever.

Holy Wars, Megadeth.

You might be thinking of the longer handled skillets popular today, but I learned on one handed skillets (good for building the forearm and wrist strength!).  Of course, for spicing while you beat,

That's the beauty of the solo on the studio recording. IMHO, it's so....disconnected, but at the same time it all fits. When I was young and I heard it, I didn't quite get it. I remember the first time I heard it and a little light went off and I thought "Wow, that's not bad, it's actually genius..."

This Dark Star from 2-18-71 is called the 'Beautiful Jam' by Deadheads...it ain't fast but it melts from the inside out

This Danny Gatton slow burning Sleepwalk is pretty incredible. That man knows his guitar better than most of us know our own dick.

The Stone Roses, "I Am the Resurrection", a rocking song in three movements.  The first movement starts out as an almost chirpy little pop tune with troublingly harsh lyrics.  Then, at about 3:40, the song shifts gears into the second movement and begins to rock you with the guitar solo.  Finally, at about 5:25, the third movement turns around and reprises the second movement.  Why?  Because it didn’t rock you hard enough the first time around.

!i!

Cool links dude. Love me some Maggotbrain now & then. My hometown radio station used to play that tune every Saturday night at midnight. I think it kind of worked like a Protection from Evil spell! :)
