Great Solo Intros


GeorgeC

Recommended Posts

You know those great moments in songs when the singer lets the guitarist or other instrumentalist do his or her thing - some of their lead-ins are as exciting as the solos themselves. Here's a quick selection of what I'm talking about:

Led Zeppelin "Trampled Under Foot" Drive on!

The Doors "Roadhouse Blues" Do it, Robbie, do it!

AC/DC "Have a Drink on Me" Get stoned!

AC/DC "You Ain't Got a Hold on Me" Oh, let me be!

Led Zeppelin "Communication Breakdown" Suck!

Jimi Hendrix "Stone Free" Turn me loose, baby

The Beatles "I Saw Her Standing There" Auuughhhh!

Lots more where these came from. Who wants to add their own favorites?

3 obvious ones that immediately come to mind are these:

Since I've Been Loving You (studio version) - Robert says "Watch out!" Watch out, indeed, as Jimmy rips into one of his most emotive solos ever.

In My Time of Dying (live @ Earl's Court 75) - Robert before the second slide solo quotes "Hey Joe" with the lines "So I gave her the gun and I shot her" as Jimmy lays her body to waste with a fusillade of bottleneck bullets.

Nobody's Fault But Mine (live on the 77 tour) - Robert does his best Steve Martin imitation exclaiming "Jimmy? Oh Jimmy? Well, EXCUSE ME!", as Jimmy says out of the way Goldilocks, time for me to shred this Les Paul.

Rolling Stones-"Sympathy For The Devil" in the movie Gimme Shelter.......Mick Jagger goes; "You can get on out now" and the Keith goes into his solo. The Get Yer Ya,Ya's Out version of the same song is great too has Mick just screams "ah wew!"

Surely it has to be Maggot Brain by Funkadelic?

"Mother earth is pregant for the third time, y'all have knocked her up. I have tasted the maggot in the mind of the universe, I was not offended. I knew I had to rise above it all or drown in my own shit"
