It is finally great to see that guitarist are rocking out solo's of a real proportion these days again. Unlike the Green Days of the guitar community we are getting some good music these days.......anyone else noticing this???
Yeah I have been noticing that too Mike and I am all for it, bring back the solo!!! [img]images/smilies/icon_thumb.gif[/img] [img]images/smilies/icon_thumb.gif[/img] [img]images/smilies/rock.gif[/img] [img]images/smilies/rock.gif[/img]
forgive this noob(moi), but troy stetina(the guy who writes all those books, vids on guitar instruction) said "its not how complex your licks are, its how you play it" besides, aren't most timeless songs written without solos eg. bob dylan's knockin on heaven's door?

actually thats really really true.. not every song needs a solo.. a solo is only really necesarry if it will help bring the song up to a higher level so to speak hehe.. i love the simplicity of alot of the darkness solos.. hehehe very fun music
It isn't necessary and yes it does spice up the song however I would rather listen to stairway to heaven with an awesome solo....then say Green Day with three power chords and no attempt at any spice. For instance I am a huge metallica fan....last albumn....no solo's....NO play time for me!
