I like the solo in 'I Call Your Name ' as its so alien to the rest of the song. Some say its shaky Beatle ground but not me.
The solo of 'I'll Follow The Sun ' is perfect for the song despite being an instrumental repeat of the verses (other people moan).
'Words Of Love ' i love for the twang of it all and the way the repeating of the lines sound like determined reinforcements.
'Lonesome Tears in My Eyes ' is wonderful, George could play those sort of solos perfectly with his eyes closes thinking of sunnier times and places. I could pick a number of from the BBC covers.

Well, there's Paul's "Taxman " solo and all surrounding it, of course. (The Beatles did not invent metal but definitely helped invent HARD ROCK) The raga sections of George's big Indian epics are great. And that fab Ronnie Scott tenor sax solo in "Lady Madonna " - love that, possibly my favourite guest performance on a 1968 Beatles recording.
GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

I think we had a similar thread once upon a time. One of my favorites is George's solo in 'Till There Was You ' - particularly from the Royal Command Performance.
