Goodness! So many! Ummm, where to start?

For me, being able to hear "into" the musicianship of a guitar solo is a major hallmark of increased resolution of the hifi system.

Dire Straits "Sultans of Swing"
Joe Satriani "Always With Me, Always With You"
Pink Floyd "Comfortably Numb" (two big solos in the one song!)
Queen "I Want to Break Free" (especially the long basswards grind at the end of the solo) But hey, try to pick a queen track where Brian's trying and he doesn't blow you away
Metallica "Fade to Black"
Eagles "Hotel California"
Bob Marley "No Woman No Cry" (live at the London Lyceum)

That's seven from me, let's let someone else have a shot.

No doubt I've missed many stunners.

Hi,
Are you sure thats a guitar?
Seems like a 5-stringbass to me..sounds great though.
Better beware, or you might fly too low.
I dont like guitarsolo's very much (they're usually much too long), but i'll make an exception for :SABRE DANCE (Kachaturian) Love Sculpture ....

Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne have wonderful solos. Actually, the most of the whole songs are really good, but solos are the best

Jimi Hendrix is a no brainer also.

I never thought of that.
but you are right, a normal guitar have 6 strings.
Maybe the webdesigner did not know?
Or has some difficult to count, to six ...

About Jimi Hendrix - a man with a real brain!
more intelligent than most of us.
At least when he did use his brains ....

Default Guitar solos = masturbation...

Guitar solos = masturbation... They're only there cos the guitarist is envious of the lead singer getting all the attention...

Yes, I play guitar.
