"What makes for a good guitar solo?"
Matt: To me, something that's memorable is always better than something flashy. I've always been a huge fan of guitar solos that, when the solo comes around, people are singing the solo as much as they're singing the vocal parts. There are Journey songs like that. There are Guns 'N' Roses songs like that. If it makes somebody air guitar and sing it while they're doing it, that to me is a good solo.
