the edge-master of beautiful guitar solos

the edge has to be the master of guitar solos, best solos i have heard thus far have to be (and i mean performed live):

walk on-sydney 2006, beautiful at the end
kite melbourn 2006
the fly elevation boston 2001
with or without you zootv washington 1992


there are many more, please feel free to add to the list, must be song-show-year,so if anyone wants to download they can

awaits the inevitable "the edge doesn't do solo's" arguments to begin...


i would say edge makes some beautiful atmospheric semi-solo's... but as far as true solo's, i don't think he has too many, and doesn't really compare to many guitar players out there... the point of course is that he doesn't try to be like those guitar players, he is what he is.

Edge doesnt do "solos" IMHO. They are more like improvisations or fills and mainly played on one string

The Fly has a decent solo, and so does Bullet...

Edge doesn't have 'real' rock solo's, he has his own unique way of making solos and finishing the songs... that's one of the things that make me like him even more, he's different from the 'standard' rock guitarist...

No one has mentioned Mysterious Ways live yet. That slide solo they made up for the end is way cool

The Edge is not what you would call a great guitarist for solos. Vertigo is a prime example of a terrible solo in a middle of a song and Crumbs from your table is virtually the same playout as Electrical Storm. In fact most of his later works have been pretty ordinary when you compare the standout of his career, Achtung Baby with The Fly, Even Better, Until The End & Love Is Blindness.....some of the best solos he ever did. Edges main strength is not guitar solos and never has been. His rhythm guitar and chord work are what set him out as a great guitarist. The imagination he shows in songs such as Until the End Of The World and The Fly set him apart from many guitarists. Still he's not fit to lace Jimi Hendrixs boots when it comes to actual guitar solos, although having said that none is!

Well I love his "solo" in Love is Blindness and any time he plays until the end of the world and looks like he's going knock Bono's head off with his guitar (i want to say something else that rhymes with knock, but that belongs in pleba )

Anyway, Bullet solo in Sydney is amazing, probably the best he's ever done for this song, as much as Love is Blindness!
