I don't care I lurves playing stairway to heaven.
having one with a flute close by makes even more fun.
on twelve string it's orchestral.

Thank you, your reply was very nice, i appreciate it.
And yes, try it again, to play guitar is never time wasted

It is difficult to decide what are the best guitar songs, especially because they almost always are part of some orchestra's work, this is what gets me always confused whenever i have to share my take on some single instrument: i see an orchestra as an orchestra, a mix of sounds

One that comes to mind is Innuendo: it's something that is able to depict a culture different by the one of the guitar player who played it: not talking about the lyrics, just the music.

Edit:
the video does not work if embed:
www.youtube.com...
sorry

that song in general is VERY particular, but the guitar part is impressive.
And the part that starts at approx. 3:25 it's not very easy to do: one can do something alike but not the same, especially when you have to work with falsetto: it's not for all, and all those who try without knowing what they are doing, fall in some poor figure.
Spanish guitar in general added MUCH to modern guitar: it's not my cup of tea, Jazz one is mine, but i acknowledge its value.
Many modern so called artists copy something from it, even if they are unaware of it, eh it's a story too long

But i always listen to modern music: for example, there's a song entitled
"What i am" by Edie Brickell (written with Kenny Withrow), played together with New Bohemians: in that song, Kenny Withrow, the guitar player, expressed some hight class: uncommon for sure, especially since it was some rithmic piece.

Edit 2: this one is unavailable too for embedding

www.youtube.com...
Not only a matter of chords: it's also a wise choice of sounds, all the song works around guitar
Nice for a guitarist.
I have many others in mind, in the meantime, i will share these ones

Sorry, Youtube removes all the best songs, so I'm left with the following poor recordings:









Sorry, no real video for this one:

yeah, I know - I usually go with the one I like best - even if the sound is just lousy

for which I also apologize

thanks for these though - this will take me a while to get through - but I'll enjoy it :-)

Actually there are two songs that are missing in my other posts. This time I will just use the best sound quality I can find as you suggested:





The following songs have a excellent guitar solos at the end especially:







Some more songs (I promise this is all for now - god, I miss my Fender):











Last One I promise:



Ok, hope you enjoyed the finale on my list. I'll let you listen to all that for now, and when you're done, I can show you more I started playing the guitar when I was 15 years old, and got my first Fender Strat when I was 17. I would just put on all these songs and jam to them, but now I live in Taiwan, and my guitar is still back in the US where my parents still live. I have my accoustic here though, which is as old as me.

I'm still working through yours - but had to stop to say

Yngwie Malmsteen - Black Star - just ruined my lunch :-)

I got so into listening - kinda forgot something was on the stove...

see - this is a good example of what I was hoping for (there have already been a bunch)

I don't keep up at all - I didn't know this guy

I really do love hearing the favorite music of other people for this reason

Here I am again. Living in Taiwan I come online when you're probably sleeping. Anyway, first of all, I'm glad you enjoy all the songs I posted thus far. I wasn't aware that you don't know Yngwie Malmsteen. Sorry you had your lunch burned while watching Black Star! haha I took a while for him to actually start playing Black Star with all the classical intros.

The following is my favorite from him playing with the orchestra. I bought the album back in England for a whole 14 pounds, and it was worth it:



You can check on Youtube for more of his stuff. Most of his pieces on Youtube are his famous ones. Nothing of his I don't know or dislike.

See what else I can find...

Let's not forget his nice performance by Fleetwood Mac:



I just wish Stevie Nicks did not join in the singing on this live version :shk:

Funnily enough, I was going to add that one, too. I also wanted to add the following, but couldn't find a decent enough version. Just raise the volume on this one - MAGIC MAN:



Does your computer sometimes crash when watching Youtube videos, especially official music videos...?
