And on the acoustic side, Bireli Lagrene is a monster, in the style of Django Reinhardt but far beyond him technically:

Partially OT, but Mark Knopfler nonetheless, love this one he wrote for his 'Crimson' solo CD......a story about a tattoo parlor becomes a love song:

So many guitarists I like! Here are two lesser known that I enjoy:
Marry you- bramhall ii - YouTube
Clapton liked this one so much he covered it with BB King.

Always liked Zal Cleminson from The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Pretty good solo at the 2 minute mark, but not my favorite of his.
Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Midnight Moses - YouTube

Also like Derry Grehan from Honeymoon Suite:
D-Cam July 21, 11 - YouTube

Finally, Vernon Reid is amazing. Very unique sense:
Lightnin' - Vernon Reid - YouTube

Very cool, thank you. I didn't know he had "Crimson" solo out, I'll have to pick it up.


One more (not really a virtuoso solo, just a good romp (pick it up at about 2:45)

Lots of good ones already mentioned. I'll add one that virtually never gets mentioned, except by me. Steve Hackett's great solo in the 1973 "Firth of Fifth" from Genesis's Selling England by the Pound. It starts at 5:40, and gets bone-chilling at 7:33. (I met him in 1977 in Los Angeles at the Roxy club where drummer Phil Collins was playing with Brand X. I told him I wanted to shake his hand, if only to acknowledge this guitar solo, and he did. Hardly recognized him at first, as he was clean-shaven and wearing contacts.)

Kill To Get Crimson is the full title.

Here's a show of his that you may enjoy:

Wow, that is a really subtle one, excellent.

When I'm in a metal mood...

Michael Schenker can really shred:
MSG The Attack Of The Mad Axeman - YouTube

Nels Cline played one of the most jaw dropping solos I've ever seen live on Impossible Germany:

Excellent, thanks for posting, but let's see him try it with two fingers of his left hand tied behind his back, which is what Django was up against!

Quote:
Using only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos (his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed after an injury in a fire), Reinhardt invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called 'hot' jazz guitar) that has since become a living musical tradition within French gypsy culture. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as "one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz."

And if you're in the mood for a non-subtle, burning guitar solo, check out Ritchie Blackmore's hyper-kinetic, 32nd note, flaming job here:


Or in "Highway Star" (official album version, of course)

And let's not forget the great but little-known Jan Akkerman's solos in this song by Focus (check out the record):

Tommy Iommi ( black sabbath ) was inspired by Django. He lost the tips of his fingers in an industrial accident. He created some plastic thimbles he wears on his finger tips to play.

Thanks, but I like the quieter, subtle stuff.
