Same goes for Desire on Lovetown. Hell, the Desire/Watchtower combo is probably the most rocking thing he's ever done.

Bullet on Vertigo - and especially on U2 3D - pissed me off because of how lacklustre and unremarkable it is. You feel like he's about to rip into something huge, and then you get that basic bullshit.

I've never attempted the actual thing, but I've played lots of similar stuff before. Scales, y'know.

The others are probably too scarred.

God Part II --> Desire --> Watchtower for the win.

Off memory, that was done once or twice, but I don't think with a shredding solo version of Desire.

OK, those of you who play guitar, what would you say Edge's finest, most proficient technical moment is?

I mean, I used to play guitar, but I was never good enough to play anything post-War. Easy stuff like ACD/ITH, 11OTT, NYD, that was my forte.

I'm pretty sure New Year's Day's solo isn't based on any scales....

I thought it was Desire->Watchtower->GP2. I don't really remember anymore though.
