    “The Hunter” - George Lynch. Hey, I’m a child of the 80s. I do love Stray Cat Strut though too.

    I'm a huge Stevie Ray fan, so.......everything by him. I had to get that out of the way.

    I definitely go for Gilmour, Knopfler, Page, Albert Lee, King(BB, Freddie, & Albert) with ease also but those are too easy as is Setzer and Paul Pigat.

    I have a ton of favorites but here are some one-offs....

    1) Golden Earing's "Twilight Zone" --- Original recording or live it is always great!

    2) All of Frampton's soloing on "Do You Feel Like We Do"

    3) Slash's "Sweet Child 'o Mine"

    4) Supertramp's "Goodbye Stranger"

    5) Intro to Skynyrd's "I Know A Little"

    6) Extended solo (of course it's SRV) on David Bowie's "China Girl"

    7) Janes Addiction "Three Days"

    8) Sonny Landreth "Congo Square"

    9) Grateful Dead "Throwing Stones"

    10) All the solo work on this live performance of "Southbound" .......
