I have to say the Man from Manhattan, may be an odd choice to some of you but it's his best. For a couple of reasons. 1. It sounds like what you would expect a Brian May guitar solo to sound like (if that makes since). 2. it's musically good. 2. I don't know I just like it.

Procession & Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon!



As far as Queen goes Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon is definitely one of my favorites. My god I remember 10 yrs or so ago when I was in like the 9th grade just playing that solo over and over again there was something about it that just amazed me and expanded my musical view of what rock music could be. Speaking of ANATO Good Company is definitely the greatest guitar orchestration ever recorded, even better than Hendrix's composition in my opinion (my opinions go anyway the wind blows so I may change next week) but I always tell people that Good Company has the most ingenious guitar orchestration ever. A tab of a hyperbole maybe but I feel that way. Good old Fashioned Lover boy is up there too along the lines of Lazing ion a Sunday Afternoon but more extravagant (which speaks for a Day at the races as a whole, I just think it's a musically better album than ANATO but the lyrics (again this is debatable I say ANATO have some lazy lyrics too at times) just aren't as good.

Oh yeah let me add, even though it's not really a guitar solo per se but at the end of the Hero, the guitar and drums (at about 2:05) are some of the best music ever created by Queen.

I've always thought that although I love the intricate orchestrations, his solo on "BackChat" is one of the cleanest, perfect solos he has ever done.

I like the solo bits on Liar and MOTBQ, but also the solos on Back Chat and You Don`t Fool Me. They are all great.

I'd have to say Bo Rhap, but, that could be because it is really my first clear memory of being completely blown away by Brian May's guitar sound. I just could not believe that a guitar could sound like that. Just so expressive and atmospheric!!!

The solo in Long Away just does something to me.
You And I, too.
Death On Two Legs is awesome!
But Hell, aren't just about all of them damn good?!
Anyways, I like the ones with a lot of harmonies. Anyone can write a solo, but not many can write such great ones with harmonics, like Brian. (Not as far as I know, at least.)
