Hotel California (The Eagles), Hello Mary Lou (Ricky Nelson) And many hundreds of others, sure to find a few more before THIS thread's finished.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: What is your favourite

Impossible question, there are too many! One that springs to mind first though is Brian May's guitar break in Queen's 'I Want To Break Free'. Beautiful downward glissando at the end too.
He's probably unique among great axemen in that he made his own instrument too, with help from dad.

Re: What is your favourite

Ok then just one at a time...Parisian Walkways (Gary Moore) just to prove it can be what you don't play that can give much expression to a piece of music. You don't need to pack as many notes as possible into a bar (i.e Yngwie Malmsteen who proves often that quantity doesn't always equal quality)
