I'd go for some of Richard Thompson's solos - there are pretty good ones on 'Can't win' and 'Hard on me' on record, but when he does them live they are just jaw-droppingly brilliant. He doesn't rely on sheer speed, although he can play fast if he wants to, but he is so inventive - sometimes, you wonder where on earth he's going with the solo, but it always comes back to the song.
I'm always torn between wondering why he isn't one of the biggest stars around and being glad that I can still see him in reasonable sized venues when he tours.
