    The most skillful I ever heard was from the Extreme 2 Album (Get The Funk Out and More Than Words were on it but I can't remember the title). I THINK the guys name was Nuno Beckencourt, and he did a guitar solo of Beethoven's Flight of the Bumble Bee. Has to be heard to be believed- I estimate the guys fingers must have had to pass through themselves at least 6 times to pull it off.

    Yep, that's great !

    BTW: isn't the Flight of the BumbleBee a Rimskij-Korsakov's composition ?

    Check out Nuno's Midnight Express and Hip Today from Waiting for the Punchline

    Well I&#39;m not gonna argue cos it&#39;s opinion but the only reason I said that is because, Slash&#39;s was nearly twice as long, faster cleaner phrasing using scales rather than tapping
    No disrespect to Eddie at all, cos he is a god And Eruption was amazing, but Eddie did utilise his 2 hand tapping and delay fx for that tune to make it sound faster than is really is, Very clever none the less B)

    No&#33; That&#39;s my point&#33;
    Slash rarly used tapping, he played individual note phrases, each note is clean

    Don&#39;t get me wrong there&#39;s nothing wrong with tapping and fx....I use them myself frequently, but out of the two, Paradise city is harder to play, cos I can play Eruption (pretty much) but I have to improvise on PC cos I&#39;m just not that quick
