The solo in Hotel California is better but I think overall While My Guitar Gently Weeps is the better song.

I prefer the way Jeff Healey played the guitar solo in his version of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.

Jeff Healey isn't in the poll and he wasn't in the Eagles in 1976 or The Beatles in 1968. No need to insert anybody else in this two option poll.

I know it's cool to bash Hotel California.  There's even a thread around here about never playing it again.  It's a great song.  The vibe on the solos is very similar.  And I am not one of the people who are in awe of Clapton.  But WMGGW is the better song. So I'm giving it the nod.

Well we're not talking about the song here, it's purely about the guitar solo. Vote as you will though.

The solos are very, very similar in terms of their feel.  So I voted Clapton because it's a part of a better whole.

To compromise, can someone take the 'Hotel California' guitar solo and layer it onto 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'?

That way everything is great.
