46. As a guitarist, I totally disagree that Freebird or Stairway are overrated.

I can play both songs, and the guitar solos are well constructed and clever, and they are not the simplest solos in the world to play, either.

Guitar World ranks the solo in Freebird as #3 all time, the solo in Stairway #1 all time.

If you think I might be "claiming" about being able to play the solos on those songs, here is a sample of some of my guitar work on a new original tune. The first solo starts at about 2:50, the 2nd solo at 4:50.



Tastes in music are matters of opinion, but come on now, there's a whole lot of truly musically lame songs out there that are waaaay more overrated than Freebird or Stairway.
