    I'm not, as a rule, a fan of guitar solos; but Adrian Belew's on Bowie's Boys Keeep Swinging, and Talking Heads' The Great Curve are works of feckin genius.

    I tend to agree regarding a lot of solos, hence my inclusion of Geordie Walker, an amazing guitar sound and not a solo in sight

    We could add Chuck Berry, but we'd have to forgive him for My ding-a-ling first..

    Amazing sound, no solos... in an attempt to tie threads together, this could be the place to mention John McKay.

    All fab guys but I really enjoy listening to Willie Nelson playing that charity shop sounding thing.

    Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, Joan and Joni and a bit of solo work, as for Denny Diaz - I have no idea!

    Another in the "What couldn't he play?" category : Ry Cooder. So much more than a slide guitarist.

    Yup, but it worked as did his noodling, it fitted the vibe, and that is what counts.

    I tend to think the same overall re. solos but Jan Akkerman and Capt Sensible deserve a mention as being melodic without being too erm, indulgent (apologies if they have been mentioned).
