stairway solo only because it fits the essence of the tune more than any other song .. there was someone who said that the solo might not be great if it wasnt the solo in stairway.. if it was in another song it wouldnt be the most famous solo ever.. i dont agree witht that assessment but you can see my point.. page's solos always captured the essence of what the piece was meant to present and trigger your emotions.. he always achieved that imop but stairway does more than any other..

"For Your Life"... That first note!... Jimmy is playing for his life, struggling beetwen good and evil with his demons, stretching, and stretching, and stretching all these obvious notes as if he doesn't want to play them but ultimately he has to - there are no others - and finally ends up with a plain "don't give a damn".

what about Bron-Yr-Aur ?????????

Does that count as a solo???? Debated, I am sure. But you can not knock the reflective masterpiece with all its perfection and imperfections left in tact. That song/solo takes you on a journey

Tough one; solo to the studio version of "Since I've been Loving You", (like the beginning to SIBLY from TSRTS.......and TSRTS's version to "Stairway to Heaven".

I had to vote other, just because I couldn't find "Ten Years Gone" on the list. While not as dynamic as "Since I've Been Loving You", it is still a fantastic guitar solo. He really makes his instrument talk in that one.

Thank God SIBLY is beating Stairway. Sometimes I wonder if people drool over that song because they're supposed to. <_<

In any event, I chose SIBLY. I'm more of a fan of his blues-driven solos than the more rock-driven ones.

Hmmmm? Lemme see...where do I begin? I do love all sides of Led Zeppelin. But I have to say my favorite facet is their acoustic side.

My favorites Page solos today (it changes, depending on my mood) are:

Other: Live Earls Court Version of Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

Other: Live "Rain Song" from "No Quarter" DVD

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Poor Tom

[electric guitar work] I'm Gonna Crawl (yes, I agree--very evocative)

My favorite Page Guitar Solo is the 'Stairway to Heaven' version on the Led Zeppelin DVD

It certainly beats HTWWW and TSRTS versions, I think that during that solo, Jimmy Page shows his finest moment.
