Between the Buried and Me - Selkies: The Endless Obsession

if you can sit throught the whole song, good! otherwise, 4:55 sir! very emotive solo.

@Nick, i can't leave you a visitor msg so i'll say it here. Thanks for the rep (Forum FAQ post), overdue thanks.

By "weird taste", i mean sometimes i can like a particular solo or song, but i hardly find them on the "Top X solos or song by Artist Y" lists. At one point i struggled to identify whether do i really appreciate music so differently from other people, or am i simply trying to get noticed by suggesting something different.

Anyways....keep on rocking!

I was just listening to Burn, from the OP, when I was reminded of a cover version of it by Michael Angelo Batio, I'm interested to hear your opinions on it. I think it'll be one of those things that some love and others hate.

The aforementioned cover version:

I'll probably post more favorites later on, but I can't talk guitar solos and not mention Nils Lofgren in Bruce Springsteen's Youngstown.

It's a solid two minutes of passion, righteous fury, and fire, but what makes it even better is Nils' facial expressions as he's belting this out. The way he dances on stage and the way he bows his head as he plays - you know that's a man who'd take his guitar to the grave.

Solo starts at the 4:10 mark.

I guess, as of now, the solo in this performance is so emotional, it gets me feeling down everytime.
