I have two.

"Something " - Guitar and bass working in harmony.

"The End " - Some of the best Beatles guitar work on record

 

Mention in dispatches for "Till There Was You " some subtle George playing.

The Beatles are English - They have influences from all over - but they are English

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 moana-hard-days-night-paul-3). 

'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.

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris) 

"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of 'self' to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

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.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

The call and answer solo in Within You Without You is inspired. Also the instrumental break in Strawberry Fields and Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite ! has a freaky solo. I could name half a dozen others. Actually anything where Ringo goes sick on the drums is going to be awesome.

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.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
