There may not be the greatest choice of guitar solo's in the Muse catalogue, but I'm sure everyone has a favourite. And I'm not talking about riffs.

If this thread gets enough interest I'll add a poll :happy:

Explain why and feel free to argu- *cough* debate :shifty:

 

My favourite is the Thoughts of a Dying Atheist solo.

It's really the only solo that stands out for me and compared to this solo, all the others seem boring (as solo's, not as whole songs). I can't really see anyone hearing the Guiding Light solo and thinking "Wow! That's amazing! I'm gonna take up guitar just to learn that!".

And besides that, this is the only solo I can think of that doesn't resemble what Matt sings (e.g. Invincible, Guiding Light), and basically just sounds brilliant.

 

THERE IS NO SOLO IN KNIGHTS OF CYDONIA.

The Citizen Erased one.

Indeed. CE, Showbiz or Darkshines(live).

Emotional and very intense, at least the first two.

For me, the best solo was KoC live around the 2007 BH&R period, i was so sad when i heard that matt had changed it for The Resistance tour :(

When we were listening to it, my dad said 'When Im older I wanna do that, just like Matt' as a joke, but I was so proud!

I've realised I'm not actually sure what constitutes a solo as opposed to just normal guitar playing.
