A few of my favorites that haven't been mentioned:

Eric Johnson - "Cliffs of Dover"
Joe Satriani - "Always With Me, Always With You"
Nuno Bettencourt - pretty much anything in the Pornografitti Album
Paul Gilbert - pretty much anything from the "Lean Into It" or "Bump Ahead" albums, but most especially the intro and outro to "Green Tinted Sixties Mind".
C.C. DeVille - yeah I know it's probably a sin to even mention Poison here but I believe his solo on "Life Goes On" is amazing.
Snake Sabo (Skid Row) - "In A Darkened Room", "I Remember You" and "Wasted Time"
Vito Bratta (White Lion) - "Love Don't Come Easy" and "When the Children Cry"
Howard Lease (Heart) - "Stranded"

Peter Frampton's - "Do You Feel Like We Do" from Frampton Comes Alive (Can never play that one loud enough, especially from where he drops off the voice box with the loud 'weeeeelllllll')

2nd place is Comfortably Numb.

Purple Rain is a good choice. Prince is a very underrated guitar player.

I love the guitar solo in Built To Spill's "Carry The Zero".

The Knack's Berton Averre's guitar solo in "My Sharona" kicks ass. Stinky or otherwise.

Dick Dale's guitar action on the album "Tribal Thunder" (and others).

actually, Prince gets plenty of praise for his guitar ability. whenever there's a list of the top 100 solos of all time, there's always at least one Prince song. He's not underrated; it's just not widely known that he plays guitar on his albums and that he does the solos. The music itself has been lauded since day 1.

True. The Guitar magazines always recognize Prince although he's an ASS when it comes to talking about equipment and doing the interviews. He won't say what he uses as far as equipment because he believes everyone should find their own sound and he often won't let them record the interviews so they have to go off of handwritten notes and/or memory. What a freak.

Actually, I can understand his equipment gripe but he has to understand that part of learning guitar is also learning how to achieve different sounds and things like that and the guitar mags are a big help in that area.

tdirgins-you are quite astute. Some good choices there. Don't know Jessica or the SRV track. Is that the band's name?

I assume he got the Jessica and Allman Bros. mixed around. Jessica must be the name of the song.

Scuttle Buttin' is the first track (I believe) from SRV's Couldn't Stand The Weather album.

Stevie Ray Vaughn does scuttle buttin'. Awesome. Of course, just about everything he did was awesome.
Jessica by the Allman Brothers is an instrumental--a classic rock staple.

I also left off
Dick Dale-Pipeline
andhow could I forget Danny Gatton?!?

Danny Gatton-Ubangi Stomp or Love My Baby (the late, great Gatton is often referred to as "The Best Unknown Guitar Player Ever". Everyone who loves guitar should pick up a copy of "The Humbler"...and prepare to be blown away by his lightning fast technique.)
