Though Harrison had some absolutely awful guitar solos in their early days, some of the Beatles guitar solos were truly magical. Me, I have soft spot for 'Something'. How about you?

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I like the opening for octopuses garden.

I'm Only Sleeping's backwards solo is great, though I think Come Together's solo is a bit boring. To me, Come Together always sounded like a demo, and I always prefered John Lennon's live version in E.

 

The Octopus's Garden intro and solo is pretty uplifting, Harrison at his best.

This is Harrison and McCartney's best:

 

 

Edit: Woops, wrong video. If anyone's interested, it was a McDonalds commercial remix.

I agree with Octopus Garden. that intro makes the song fantastic.. and I like the country style it has.

 

My first answer is Something or While My Guitar Gently Weeps, but  I love Paul's Taxman. I also love Dig A Pony a lot.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I really like the solo in The Night Before, but not because it's a great solo or anything. It's like a contradictory solo, every time it starts, it stops itself and I just think it's kind of funny. I've always liked John's solos in Get Back, Paul has two incredible solos in Taxman and Good Morning Good Morning, and George obviously has many fantastic solos, but my favorite would be Hey Bulldog.

For me it's "The One After 909" - it's done live, in the winter cold, it's a smokin' solo.

WMGGW's solo wasn't played by a Beatle, but I presume you know that.

The "Taxman" solo's a real white-hot stunner, obviously, and "Good Morning Good Morning"'s very similar and even a bit more frenetic. But lately I've really been grooving on George's work in "Something" and "Octopus's Garden" - all those notes just placed in their proper spaces with the greatest care.

Really, "Revolver" and "Abbey Road" have gotta be two of the all-time GREAT rock-guitar albums

Of course, Revolver has some incredible guitar on it...And Your Bird Can Sing, She Said She Said and the backwards guitar spring to mind.

I love early years' George's solos! "The Night Before" is cool, clean and brief, just like a popsicle (what?).

Day Tripper, Hey Bulldog, Taxman... But my favourite is the "Let it be" song's solo (from the 1970's album, not the outtakes).

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Not to mention "Paperback Writer" and "Rain" - which appear on the 16-track version of "Revolver" in my fantasies. ("The best album in the world just got better!")

I'm sure I could rattle off a bunch of guitar solo's that I believe are amazing, but if I had to pick one, it would have to be the one I loved as a small boy. "Can't Buy Me Love"

Out of curiousity, where would you place them on the album?
