What’s your favorite solo by J on any of his
studio albums? I especially like these:
Over your shoulder, without a sound
Thumb, Green Mind
Start Choppin, Where you been
As far as concert solos go, that’s a different story. "What else is new" is always a killer solo when you see it live.

Every solo that is mercifully brief, like the one in Freakscene. Gosh, what a strange question.

it’s a tie… Between Where You Been’s Get Me and Drawerings.

I agree with ‘Start Choppin’ (1st solo), ‘Get Me’, ‘Drawerings’.
What about the one in ‘Nothin’s Goin On’?
It gives me the creeps every time I listen to it…

Drawerings and Get me are definetely right up there. And I totally second Nothin’s Goin’On. It’s just plain genius. The Wagon is also one of my favourites, gets me every time. And I mustn’t forget Just Like Heaven. It’s one of the best covers of all time. And the guitar is, as you guessed, heaven.

My favorites are ones that are really lyrical and melodic
Just Like Heaven
I live for that look

Gotta agree with you on Thumb, Green Mind, Get Me and I Live for that Look…kills me every time I listen to them. My current fave is Ammaring, beautiful song with amazing guitar…wow!!

<FONT>Alone. One of the best on the albums and amazing live.
Maggot Brain on Mike Watt’s ‘Ball-Hog or Tugboat’. Wow!</FONT>

Intro to Keeblin’.
The man’s a genius

not really a studio album track though.
Dagnammit read the questions, boy!
OK – maybe Over Your Shoulder, Ammaring, Thumb or I live for that look.

I think the solos I most enjoy are these:
"At the end, I went to jail & got executed just because I didn’t cried at my mother’s funeral."
