What's everybody's favorite solo or lick from a song...mine is the solo from Lonely Day by System of a Down. I also like the solo in one by metallica during the heaviest part of the song.!!

Impossible for me to name a favourite - there are so many which are great in their own ways.

But I'm listening to Stormy Monday (Eric Clapton, Blues Disc 2) and its pretty amazing. Great solos...

Ps - I'm going to see BB King and tomorrow at Wembley!!!

my favorite solo right now is freebird by lynard skynard
Let the pretend take over
And that season be the first
Shadows we're in become us
So we set up interspersed
Between here and away
Become your space every day
