On the way home I started flipping through radio stations. The first thing I heard was this.
As much fun as this song is, I got tired of the pop rock mix of styles. Plus that guitar solo at the 4:07 mark is so soaring that I needed something to balance it. Don’t get me wrong. The guitar playing is great, but it is so over the top with how much it soars that it just was too much. The very next station was playing this.
Wow. What a difference. Maybe I’m just a classic rock guy. But the tone and depth of the guitar solo at the 2:10 and 5:15 marks just floor me.
And then there is stuff like this.
What do you think? Which do you like more? Are they too different to honestly compare? What other solos really hit you hard?
