    What Happened to Guitar Solos?

    What Happened to Guitar Solos?

    There haven't been any new bands with guitar solos that make me say" wow they don't completely suck nuts."

    It makes me sad...Now I'm not talking about bands that are older and come out with new albums that have intense guitar solos. (RUSH!OR CREAM!OR PRIEST OR MAIDEN OR ANY OF THE OLD CLASSIC ROCK OR METAL BANDS! ANGEL WITCH!!!) Better Baha?
    If you have found any tell me, If you haven't... complain...


    Solos.

    Baha- Zombie Auto Pilot by Un Earth 1:30
    SIlvereye- Petrucci?and Dream Theater Songs 1 and 2
    BeBop-30 second solo at 1:31,24 second solo at 1:36
    =Those inflatable globes are dangerous, sent several people to hospital with one. Just another proof that RE is not only wrong, but deadly!
    Another victory for FE!
    EARTH IS FLAT!

    One that comes to mind straight away:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyD_esjGwK4 Skip ahead to about 1:30.

    And, stop comparing every single thing to Iron Maiden. It's narrow and annoying. -_-

    The main reason that I can determine is that the general public doesn't particularily care about guitar solos. I used to thing hard guitar solos were easy before I started playing the guitar myself, but now I respect them alot more.

    So it's sort of like, most people don't think guitar solos are that good unless they actually play guitar themselves. Plus there's a virtual time limit on songs. Most bands would prefer to add an extra verse than either replace it with a guitar solo or extend the song by a minute.

    Petrucci's an amazing guitarist. If you want hear more solos, get away from the mainstream,

    Petrucci isn't a main stream musician though. I think hes referring to bands like nickel back. This reminds me of what my ever so enlightened dad said this morning: "All new bands sound like fuckin' nickelback!".

    You have to live under a rock or just listen to classic rock to not notice new heavy metal bands with freak guitarists.
    Cellador (youll like this if you like iron maiden) 30 second solo at 1:31
    Avenged Sevenfold 24 second solo at 1:36

    Try those bands theres a solo in almost every song of theirs.
    Courtesy Or Death? Your choice my friend...

    I think what Judas meant was that solos are still around, but they're nothing compared to solos from songs from the 80's. Like, they just play hundreds of random notes and pass it off as a solo, when in reality it's a headache.

    A perfect example: Dragonforce. -_-

    THANK YOU BAHA

    Seriously, this new Powermetal thing coming over everyone is getting on my nerves. Herman Li is not a "God" by any means, and playing at 200+ BPM isn't "New" or "Revolutionary" (Besides, Slayer did it before them anyway). And they're not even solos, unless you count playing scales quickly with fake synths/pedals in the background solos.

    Also, we need less whammy bar in every solo (Yes Kirk, I'm talking to you)
