NeilTest™ Vol. 9 – Simmering Solos

by Peter Wendel
We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

The ninth installment of the NeilTest™ collection takes a look at some of the guitarist's most memorable solos. For this test, we focus primarily on Neil's guitar wizardry, but we've also sprinkled a couple haunting harmonica solos in there for good measure.

To get a passing grade, you'll need to be familiar with Neil's studio work as well as his famously raucous live sound. He's the Godfather of Grunge, after all!
