Guitar Solos (At Work)

NB: I would like to begin this post by saying I’m pretty damn proud of myself for figuring out how to post links to Youtube videos that only contain the wee sections of the songs you’re meant to hear (not the whole song). What a time-saver. I am a tech wizard!

So.

I’ve been paying attention to the music at work, and noticing some pretty great solos in some of the songs. The world is full of great solo turns, of course, but these are just a few of those that have caught my ear as they emanate from the in-house system:

The Knack – My Sharona

Richie Valens – La Bamba

Michael Jackson – Beat It (Eddie Van Halen)

Bryan Adams – Cuts Like A Knife (Keith Scott)

Eagles – Hotel California (the ending dual guitar battle, of course):

  1. Great stuff Aaron! I’d personally add Dani California, Comfortably Numb and *some* kinda Maiden to the mix \m/

  2. You might have to teach me this trick, might come in handy!

    • Sure, I’ll put it here so everyone can see:

      Just copy the url of the youtube video for the song you want, and paste it into your post like you always do. Then click on it and choose the wee pencil to go to Edit. On the url, you have to add a start and a stop time for the chunk of video you want, so you need to figure out where in the video your start and stop is. Then you need to convert that time into seconds.

      Example:

      If your chunk of song goes from 1:34 to 2:10 in the song, that’d be 94 to 130 (in seconds). Cool?

      Then all you gotta do is add this to the very end of the url:

      [url]?start=94&end=130

      You have to put the question mark attached to the end of the url, no space, and you have to use the word start, the = and the & as you see them in that example, no spaces. You don’t need to put anything at the end, after the stop time.

      Done!

  7. Aye, that Van Halen solo is quite something and, as much as I hate yon Eagles, the solos on there (Joe!) are exceptional.

    • Hate is a strong word, dude! Hate the Eagles? Like, they did nothing that spoke to you, and in fact drew your ire? Damn. That’s a lot! 😉

      • Hate is a strong word, but I’m certain that’s how I feel about them. Only Eagles stuff I like are the Joe Walsh contributions. I even revisited the Hotel California again recently and it just doesn’t move me. Very accomplished, aye, but they bore me.

        • Fair enough! If it don’t move you, it ain’t gettin’ played! Even though this is apples and oranges, I’m actually in the same boat with Kendrick Lamar right now. I was saying to Stuffandsuch that he may be the artist line where I am now too old to understand the new music the kids like.

          • Aye, I’m much the same with Lamar. I quite like the odd tune, but I just don’t love anything. I was actually chatting along the same lines with a pal about Post Malone…

            • Haven’t heard a Post Malone track in my life, maybe I won’t haha. I dunno, I get that they have important things to say, and they’re reflecting the life they know/knew, but when it comes down to is it something I am actually gonna put on and listen to it for enjoyment? So far, not really. I’ll keep trying though.
