The live version of The Fly, with the extended solo. Great stuff.

Not that it's technically a solo, but the beginning to "One". That or maybe his fabulous work in "Mysterious Ways." Either one is quite enjoyable.

The Fly, hands down best solo (though live Bullet from Sydney Zoo Tv show is pretty mind blowing).

Also i like New Year's Day, Twilight and Electric Co. (UABRS version).

Some neat solos:
If You Wear That Velvet Dress (very moody)

Some Days are Better Than Others (haven't heard that guitar sound from Edge that much...very unique for him...though i can't tell if that's a messed-up guitar or a weird synth doing the solo)

I'd have to say the slide solos in "even better than the real thing" and "mysterious ways". Also the chaotic solos at the end of "last night on earth" and "until the end of the world". Hmmmmm. Now that I think about it - U2 has some strange apocolyptic-esque tunes.

Hey hey...I forgot to mention that the solo for New York when performed live is jaw-dropping and absolutely one of Edge's best ever solos.

Bullet the Blue Sky is Edge being Page. Every version is fantastic.

Kite. Great solo. Leaves me having to start the song over because the solo is just too damn short!

Until the End of the World. Boston DVD. You never want this song to end!

I like "The Fly" solo on the album and on the Boston DVD best. I would have put in the recent "Bullet the Blue Sky" solo that he's been doing over the past decade as number 1 but b/c it is a little retro (still great) I have to place it 2nd. "The Fly" just sounds different then most guitar solos that I've heard in my life.

Also I love the slide that he does in "Even Better than the Real Thing"... actually that song might be 2nd best for me when I think about it.

When I think about it more...

The "Ground Beneath Her Feet" has a good guitar part at the end, but it needs the 2nd guitar to really work so I guess that can't count, huh?

I happen to like some of Edge's guitar "solos" on Rain covers. Don't remember how the orignal sounds and the Edge's playing is messy on bits, but hey they are still fun to listen to.

I also have a heart for the 2nd guitar on "The Sweetest Thing." The guitar part they added.

"With or Without You" at the end and with the "We'll shine like summer stars..." part. Its short, sweet, and simple.


Wow there are lot of memorable Edge guitar moments.

Hey speaking of great solos, Creed has some great solos.

The Fly - simple but reminscient of the great guitar solos of David Gilmore. A minimilists approach at placing just the perfect notes over the song. It makes me shiver sometimes!

Love is Blindness - Fits the atmosphere of the song perfectly! I almost believe the guitar is weeping!

Also: Lady With The Spinning Head, Bullet the Blue Sky, the solo played over One Tree Hill at the Point Depot
