I was thinking the other day about what other people consider their favorite melodic (non metal) guitar solos...

Some of mine are:

Journey - Send Her My Love
Eagles - Hotel California
Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
Lindsey Buckingham - Trouble

The title made me think of this article. Anyway, Prince has some nice solos in his own songs, too.

The Tubes - Talk To Ya Later
The Tubes - She's A Beauty
Toto - Hold The Line
All three are Steve Lukather solos!

Peter Frampton - Breaking All The Rules
Peter Framtpon - I Read The News (a mediocre song with a really good solo)
Journey - Who's Crying Now (That ending solo is killer)

I'll also add SRV's ending solo on David Bowie's Let's Dance.

Hmm... Have to give this some thought.

Two that spring to mind probably aren't widely known on the board.

Marillion - Neverland

That Marillion song gives Comfortably Numb a run for its money, but is kind of a slow burn, so it may not be to everyone's taste.

Therion - Asgard

Off of what is probably my favorite from Therion - albeit one that desperately needs a remix/remaster as it is congested as hell at points. The ending solo on this track just gives the vibe you want from this. The entire album is a concept outlining the different worlds of Norse mythology and the solo on Asgard has both a soaring and a yearning quality to it that caps the song perfectly. Really sorry that lineup of the band isn't around anymore.
