Thought it should live here really.
There are many many axe wielders who knocked us off our perch from time to time.
What's your fave & why?

Mine.
Comfortably Numb from Delicate Sound of Thunder .

Just an astonishing rendition of the break Gilmour played on The Wall.
The crescendo is something that makes me put everything down & lose myself in the whole solo.
Noodling to some, but heaven to me.

There's a version of Comfortably Numb / Some Kind Of Stranger (from "Dark Christmas" or something?) which has a really good guitar solo.

But the best guitar solo in the world is a very short one. It is found in The Velvet Underground's "Rock And Roll". In this video, it's at 3'28" and lasts about 4 seconds.
It doesn't sound like much, but it's a great little part, and my favourite.
Sometimes less is more.

As integral parts of the whole song, so to speak, guitar solo's are fine, if not too long. But as displays of dexterity and oh look what i can do with a guitar they are as about as interesting as oh say drum solos.... Mr. Green Knocking on Heaven's Door on the 'We're all aware of that' bootleg is great by the way...

Obviously it's the banjo solo on I Am A Cider Drinker by The Wurzels.

Neil Young of course! Wayne on KoHD bien sûr! Poison Ivy hell yaeh!

And let me add Lindsey Buckingham. His solo in Go Your Own Way is sublime: not too many notes & with feeling... just the way I like it Mr. Green

Dinosaur jr's J. Mascis is pretty good in that departement too Very Happy
