I was thinking in terms of long and stretched out, but if you want catchy, economical, straight to the point, the solo break on "Rickie Don't Lose That Number" is pretty tough to top. I think that was Skunk Baxter but I'm not sure - they used so many guys in the studio it could have been anyone...As far as catchy, forgot about Commodores "Easy"...Great solo.
But the solo starts at 3:37, are you saying you don't like part between 3:37 and 4:04? AYE KEED, AYE KEEDEvery time I've answered the guitar solo question since '93 it's been the same.
Dinosaur Jr - Where You Been
