There are a couple of songs by a Portuguese band that have great guitar solos, they are Xutos % Pontapés.

a few songs that spring to mind are

Negras Como a Noite
Para Sempre

see some videos here:
http://www.xutos.pt/multimedia/videoclips.php

try to google for it, they have a website, but i think only in Portuguese.

They have two guitarrists in the band but the soloist is João Cabeleira.

Also the Scorpions are great.

At the moment I only have this one, I love the guitars, the song is called Malaguena salerosa.

Simplistic garbage. KISS su... ;)

Actually that was pretty sweet! I didn't know Ace tapped.

We all know that "Eruption" is the best guitar solo ever written, but here are some others that I've enjoyed:

Ha...

Yeah, Ace was using the tapping technique before the rock world was introduced to the GOD, Eddie VH. Another INCREDIBLE guitarist, "Eruption" RULES!!

actually tapping has been around for quite a while, brian may, richie blackmore and many others used it, but EVH was the one that made it what it is today, as brian once sayd, EVH redefined what was already defined

Steve Vai's Fire Garden Suite.

Actually, any of Steve's songs are perfect examples of what my favourite guitar solo would be, regarding performance, techniques and the notes per se.

Oh yeah, I forgot Brian used to tap... either that or I just didn't pay close enough attention to notice... >_<

Well there goes the respectability of this thread...
why don't you just do as the title implies and stick to 'your favourites', and leave other people alone?

(For the record, the most hilarious Heartbreaker solo was in 1988. Watch it and weep!)

Why don't you just shut up and let me ask him if he was joking?

Because I really can't believe it.
