Ok, my question is what are some essential guitar solos that every guitar player should try and learn, and have in their arsenal. I'll start with 2 obvious ones-whole lotta love-Zep; and of course Eruption.

I'd have to say, Pink Floyd - The Wall solo, Heaven Sent (Dokken, I love that one!), Crying in the Rain & Is this Love (Whitesnake),Baluchitherium - All of it,(VanHalen). You've probably guessed that I am an 80's rock fan.

SRV- EVERYTHING MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA...
Jimi Hendrix- EVERYTHING AGAIN HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Van Halen- EVERYTHING BAHAHAHAHAHA

k im done *poof*

ok seriously-

SRV- Everything that he wasnt all coked up on, cuz it really made it sound sloppy, but that is TOTALY not a dis towards what his ability was.

Jimi Hendrix- Pfft I wasnt kidding... lol he had a different styler every song. (Except for his bluesy time riffs and solos which is awesome as it is anyways)

Van Halen- Some of the stuff... eh.... but most of it was just awesome and totally showed what talent he had (and has!)

:dunno:Well gotta go an opposite direction here....listen to the feel and lines, I have only learned tune related stuff, but never ever sat down and nicked someone elses solo's.....get your own voice and play what you hear in your head.
Essential is the music, not the solo's.

I agree with rid about that. It can be a learning expierience to learn someone else's solo, but you will never play it the way they did, with the same personality, because you aren't them. Why not improvise, and make your own licks? Why not develope a personal style that reflects you as an individual?
