    Derek and the Dominoes, "Layla"
    Guns N Roses, "November Rain"
    Rage Against the Machine, "Bulls on Parade"
    Pantera, "Cemetary Gates"
    Led Zeppelin, "Heartbreaker"
    Pink Floyd, "Comfortably Numb"
    Jimi Hendrix, "Little Wing"
    Cream, "Crossroads"
    Metallica, "Master of Puppets"

    November Rain wins because it was the last great guitar solo.

    I've hever heard anybody talk about this one, but Neal Schon of Journey in "Any Way You Want It" really cooks. The solo goes from about halfway through the song to nearly the end, when his guitar is really screaming.
