    Personally i love Hotel California or Sultans of swing coz they actually make a huge part of the song, not just blistering fast notes. This will be interesting to see what u guys come up with. Also steve vai's Crossroads solo :bow2:

    Yeah...i must say Sultans is one of my all time favs. I always liked Van Halens solo from Michael Jacksons 'Beat It' too...there's lots of others but Whiskey In The Jar' by Thin Lizzy would be right up there too :rock:

    I don't know about "best" (it's subjective), but:

    The most imitated* electric guitar instrumental of all time is The Shadows' Apache, with Hank Marvin in the lead and Bruce Welch playing Flamenco-like rhythm accompaniment.

    (*just count the number of other bands' covering/renditions of the song)


    I've even heard a version performed by Ritchie Blacmore, but that didn't ring any bell in me.
    You can play "Apache" any way you want, you won't come near enough the original version as far as the ear-pleasing factor is concerned.

    The best hank Marvin imitator I've come across so far is Goran Tanring's rendition (it's like 99.5% close to the real Apache) which you can try here, a suberb mixing work btw:

    Jerry Garia improvs have to be some of the best around. Period.
