Really hard to pick just three, but for me these three stand out in a whole list of great ones.

Rush - La Villa Strangiato
Thin Lizzy - Roisin Dubh
Dream Theater - Lines in the Sand

Vince Gill is a very great picker!

Can't believe nobody has mentioned Clapton's great finger workout on CROSSROADS!

I think that the guitarists on that live version of Sweet Jane (from the Lou Reed album, "Rock and Roll Animal") are Steve Hunter (who is credited with writing the solo), accompanied by Dick Wagner. Both are mostly known for playing with Alice Cooper.

That version is awesome, although I also like the far shorter/simpler Velvet Underground studio version a lot. Even without a guitar solo, the riff is awesome on its own....

Clapton's playing on "Crossroads" is great, although Jack Bruce might have played his bass even faster in some parts!

Another Clapton favorite of mine is "Keep On Growing", from the Layla album. There are actually three guitar parts overlaid on the track. I had long assumed that one of them was Duane Allman, who played on a number of songs on the Layla album. And the song has a bit of an Alllman Brothers feel to it. But it is usually accepted that Clapton overdubbed all three parts, and that Allman didn't appear on this song. (That said, some still speculate that Allman IS on the track, despite not being credited....)

Steve also played long term with Peter Gabriel. Steve has had some major health issues the last few years and is going blind. Last I heard he was working on what he expected to be his last solo album to cover medical expense.

I will go with...

Mr. Scary from George Lynch
Push Comes to Shove - Van Halen
For The Love of God - Steve Vai


So many I love, but those 3 influenced my own playing quite a bit.

I have been noticing a number of short articles by Steve (Hunter) in recent issues of Guitar Player magazine. Basically reminiscing on the recording sessions for various well-known albums that he played on. I don't know this, but I suspect that the editors of GP magazine have been giving him some writing jobs, possibly to help him a bit with medical expenses. Now that you mention it, there have maybe been a few hints about a medical condition in some of the articles. (But only hints.)

His articles are very interesting, BTW. He's very thoughtful about laying out his solos, and trying to make sure they are a good fit for the overall song, etc. Which is probably why he has worked and recorded for a wide variety of bands and artists.

He has written for GP for some time, but it does look like it picked up some. He is very open on his Facebook page about what is going on. I knew his name, but only a few years ago realized how much of his work I actually knew.
