1. Steely Dan - Do It Again.
This comes with Sir Brian’s seal of approval!
"Norwegian Wood" - if only because it was the first...
Or, "Paint It Black" - The Rolling Stones
BTW, these two were played on actual sitars - "Do It Again" was an electric sitar, which is a guitar with the sound of a sitar. Much easier to play than a"real sitar...
Are you not overlooking "Sitarway to Heaven?" Or is my dyslexia starting to return?
Isnt this a trick question? Sitar?!? Kind of like banjo.....I hear it, i’m Out.
This is why Do It Again sits alone in the top 10.
That actually gets the nod for #1 from me.
And record. The first time I encountered a sh!tar on a session, there was no internet to cheat and look up where to put microphones... I was dumbfounded for an hour, and man, they’re actually really quiet instruments.
The real best “fake” sh!tar is Shakti, that John McLaughlin acoustic-guitar-thingy.
Paint It Black is a solid tune, but is it really a solo? I think it's just a melody.
Norwegian Wood, meh.
And of course electric sitars count. It's rock 'n' roll, man!

'Cry Like a Baby'- The Boxtops
If you’re talking Steeley Dan, this is one of my favourites. It plays havoc with my emotions!
EDIT: Sorry, I missed the whole sitar solo thing and thought it was just solos. Edit/ Neil Young's live Hurricane solo on Live Rust
not a neil fan but that is a tough live record.
Does this count, frusciante impromtou jam in poland...
If that's a sitar, then I have been fooled for a long time...
Oh, geez, I missed the whole sitar angle....I thought it was just solos. Sorry!!!!!
No worries! FWIW, I agree with the awesomeness of Neil's "Hurricane" solo!
