Greatest Guitar Solos

After reading an article which contains Stairway to Heaven in the top 13 it becomes necessary to compile your own. Not that there are great solos in Stairway to Heaven, but there are far better solos in other artists songs, such as Steps – 5,6,7,8 and Cotton Eye Joe. Stairway to Heaven makes the list sound like a Saturday morning headache in any guitar shop throughout the world. Here are my favourites in no particular order..they are from my very limited experience and range of musical taste and YMMV. I’ve skipped a lot of good ones from artists like the drunken busker on Royal Avenue.
Bacon, Lavigne and the cute one from Busted make up my list of greatest guitarists.
