The Journey Of The Electric Guitar Solo Through The Years (Video)
  |  @   |  

CDZA’s has uploaded a video called “Journey of Guitar Solo,” the first episode in their planned The Instrumentals video series. This first episode shows the evolution of the electric guitar solo in western pop music through the years.

The 6-minute video includes a medley of 28 songs spanning over 50 years with guitar solos performed by Mark Sidney Johnson.

Watch the video here below.

Many of these solos in the beginning are instantly recognizable (or, at least they should be!), though once they got to the 2000s, they totally lost me. And if you lived through the ’90s, like me, you’ll recall that it was a sad time for the guitar solo. I recall back then thinking how pathetic it was that the only real new lead guitar player was the guy from the Spin Doctors.

Can you recognize all the solos in this video?
