I have to catch a plane to Calgary in a few hours. And after having just returned from C2E2 in Chicago a few days ago, I'm feeling a little bit like Spinal Tap backstage in Cleveland. So on that note, I give you the greatest guitar solo in the history of the world: Nigel Tufnel from the movie This is Spinal Tap.
For the three of you out there that haven't seen the film, do so this weekend. Yes, the music and fashion are dated, but its humor is timeless. Plus, for all my fellow ax-grinders out there, you'll enjoy seeing Nigel's army of guitars in the background. Les Pauls, Strats, guitars with infinite sustain, and, of course, the guitar that can neither be played, touched, nor even looked at.
And if you don't agree with me that the above solo is the best ever (seriously, he tunes the violin), then let us know in comments which solo turns your world upside down.
