I have belatedly recognised the very impressive work of the late Glen Campbell. I knew about his session career so was well aware he knew his way around a guitar but never really listened to his own stuff.

eg: Galveston live (song 2.30, break from c.4.20)

Sister Rosetta for a Sunday.

The solo is around 1.25. Maybe she’s not doing much, but it really is all there is worth doing.

Nice.

I lust after that SG Custom.

Speaking of SGs, can we include ironic anti-shredding? Shame to exclude FZ.....

Jerry Donahue. Had a stroke in 2016.

Actually, is that a 'solo'?

Country shredding.

That Rosetta clip is stone good.

Steely Dan - Bodhisattva is probably my favourite. Three solos, all working for the song; elements of jazz, rock n roll, swing, some nice two part harmonies, all taken at a swift rock pace.

MY Old School for me.

Why no shredding, fender?

Jack White on Seven Nation Army. In fact anything by Jack White live.

Eligelis - 11 Mar 2018 10:42:43 (#11 of 215)

Mike Oldfields solo at the end of side 2 of Ommadawn (at the end of the long piece anyway - before "On horseback" starts up).

Bribaba - 11 Mar 2018 10:47:33 (#12 of 215)

Sonny Sharrock live in Bremen (1987). Excellent sound quality.

I like John Perry's playing. 'No Peace For The Wicked' has a fine solo with feeling and restraint.

Steely Dan - Bodhisattva is probably my favourite. Three solos, all working for the song; elements of jazz, rock n roll, swing, some nice two part harmonies, all taken at a swift rock pace.

I love that song too. I hope that my abilities will be up to it one day.

I suppose this is shredding too?

Larry Carlton on Kid C for me.

Alvin Lee -bluest blue

Santana - europa

MY Old School for me.



Yeah, me too. You resent the fade at the end, as Baxter seems about to level up yet again.

Just about anything Elmore James played.

I wonder if he ever did get that broom dusted.
