Ear Meals

Recommended Posts

What specific tunes/solos with guitar work (not just artisits in general, please) do you listen to which are as delightful as say, eating a good meal?

 

I really love listening to Stevie Ray's Riviera Paradise

 

Holdsworth's soolos on Road Games, Devil Take the Hindmost, Three Sheets to The Wind.

 

Yngwie's Black Star and Perpetual.

 

Michael Schenker's solo on Rock Bottom off of the live Strangers in the Night.

 

 

Django Reinhardt's ELECTRIC guitar solo on Night and Day

 

There are many more, but time is short right now . . .

 

EDIT

 

Also include favorite tunes/solos w delicious guitar tones (amp/guitar matchups, etc. . .)

Are you talking about "Cast Your Fate To the Wind", the Vince Guaraldi tune Walsh covered at ehe end of the instrumental portion in the middle of The Bomber Medley"?

There are many, many!

 

OTMH: Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower and Drifting

McLaughlin - Goodbye Pork Pie Hat

Robben Ford - Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues

Amos Garrett (with Butterfield's Better Days): Please Send Me Someone to Love; and his live version of "Sleepwalk"

Roy Buchanan: Pete's Blues

Steve Cropper: the rhythm fills on Otis Redding's "Dock of the Bay"

Clarence White on the Byrds "Jesus Is Just Alright" and some of the live stuff from "Untitled".

I could go on for days! Oh, Django Reinhardt's "Nuages" and "Melodie au Crepuscule" with the clarinet. Wes on "Willow Weep For Me".

 

By the way, I just downloaded the sheet music for Nuages from mandozine.com for free, in case anyone is interested. The fingerings are mando fingerings but that shouldn't be a stumbling block to guys like you!

Oh, and I love the guitar part on Al B. Sure's "Night and Day". Anybody know who played it?

 

And that old R&B hit, "Smiling Faces" from the '70s, that has an instrument that sounds like a 12-string but it's not: an odd one I've never heard before or since to my knowledge. Does anybody know what that instrument was?

Brother Man...I found this site about the band http://www.the-undisputed-truth.com/guestbook/thanks.html

and it rawks...left a question to see if anyone knows...I'll also get my bass player to download that version and see if our collective musical experience figure it out....did it sound like an electric sitar, coz that was a happening thing in soul music of that era.

Ahhh would that be as in BAD HOBBIT?? or NASTY HOBBIT?? :D
Well since you asked, probably more like how Gandalf described me....

 

If I say he is a Burglar, a Burglar he is, or will be when the time comes. There is a lot more in him than you guess, and a deal more than he has any idea of himself. You may (possibly) all live to thank me yet.

 

But I understand the confusion!

You Really Got Me... both versions, Kinks and VH, are great and both guitar solos are great!

 

Chinese Rock... again, both versions are great by The Ramones and the Heartbreakers.

 

Panama - VH. Great song, guitar solo (not unlike You Really Got Me), great DLR vocals!

 

All My Ghosts - Frank Black and the Catholics. Great song and guitar solo.

"Spend all day doing nothing

But we sure do it well" - Huck Johns from 'Oh Yeah'

First I have to take offense at the thread title, "Ear Candy." Ear Candy implies melodic fluff that is cheap and sweet but all empty calories. To me the stuff people are listing is more like "Ear Gourmet Meal," the sublime good stuff that really hits our souls as well as our taste buds.

 

I'll go a little afield from the guitar realm with some of my particular favorites here:

  • Jean-Luc Ponty's solo on "50-50" from Zappa's Apostrophe
  • Jaco Pastorius' bass parts in "Suite: Golden Dawn" (the funky section) from Al DiMeola's Land of the Midnight Sun, "Night Passage" from Weather Report's Night Passage, and "In France They Kiss on Main Street" from Joni Mitchell's Shadows and Light
  • Wayne Shorter's solos on "Aja" from Steely Dan's Aja and "Ponta de Areia" from his Native Dancer
  • Freddie Hubbard's solo on "Maiden Voyage" from Herbie Hancock's Maiden Voyage
  • Jeff Beck's solos on "Journey to Love" from Stanley Clarke's Journey to Love and "The Saint and the Rascal" from Narada Michael Walden's In the Garden of Love Light

 

Lots more, but that's enough for now...
