Most Underrated Lifeson Solo
Posted 14 May 2007 - 10:20 PM
Especially enjoy the harmonics in "The Big Money". I looked up a tab for it and found that it is tuned a full step up! No wonder the harmonics are so badass eh? Nobody thinks of going up, just down nowdays. Shows you how good Alex really is eh?

I agree with you that the solo in "Big Money" is great, thanks mostly to all those harmonics.
"Afterimage" and "Kid Gloves" are good. But my favorite Lifeson solo of all time is... "No One at the Bridge." It's not the most technically challenging solo to play, but it's the most emotive of all Lifeson solos... so passionate, so full of feeling! It's great.

Alex really flexes his skills in that one - the fact he is a combo lead/rhythm guitarist for the band. I'm pretty sure that solo has some CHORDS in it that most rhythm guitarists didn't even know existed.

Perhaps not the most technically sophiscated, but still great .

Pretty much every Bravado extension.
And though it's literally only 9 seconds long...it is intense shredding action that everyone completely disregards. It proves Alex can shred with the best: Red Tide.

Nobody ever mentions the solo in Tom Sawyer.
