Ok, Just a bit of fun, there are actually 2 elements to this I want to Brainstorm with you.
1) There are some truly wonderful guitar solos, guitar lines and layering in songs you would consider "Pop" music. I'll give a couple of examples to start this bit.
a) Chesney Hawkes "The one and only" Great solo, I believe it was played by Nik Kershaw who wrote the song.
b) FGTH Welcome To The Pleasure Dome, no solo as such but the whole guitar line in the song is really effective (get your headphones on). Don't know if Brian Nash played all that or Trevor Rabin/Stephen Lipson who sessioned on the album. I doubt one guitarist could emulate this "exactly" in a live gig.
2) Songs where maybe only a Guitarist or musically aware person can pick out the Guitar in the mix.
a) Fatback Band "I Found Lovin". Highly processed guitar sound, funky pattern, possible autowah madness.
b) OMD Forever Live and Die. That typical 80's "Plinky Plonky" Strat out of phase tone. Very Subtle though.
I love lots of music and sometimes want to learn the most unexpected guitar parts.
I think I posted this in the correct thread this time
Give me your choices.
It's an oldie but goldie, Goodbye to Love by the Carpenters ...the outro solo by Tony Peluso is just outstanding... one of those moments when you cry 'Noooo' when some dick DJ fades out the track too early. Another oldie pop song with a great solo is '2468 Motorway' by Tom Robinson.. an SG in full-fat mode... gorgeous.
