Default Rate the guitar solo!

Here's a little thing I want to start.

Basically someone posts a video (no links to downloads - takes too long) and also the time where the solo enters in the song and then the user(s) below rate it in these categories:

Clarity - how "clear" is the solo. Is it messy? Are the notes played easy to hear?

Complexity - how much skill is used the solo (Dragonforce solos are generally very complex)?

Execution - how well is the solo played? Did the player completely **** it up?

Emotion - how much "soul" is put into the solo? Very emotional solos tend to be the best - making the listener feel a variety of emotions when listening to it.

So basically, you rate it as follows:

Clarity: -/5
Complexity: -/5
Execution: -/5
Emotion: -/5


Okay, I'll start.








Starts at 1:44 until 2:00 and then restarts at 2:55

That sounded more like just a riff than a solo, but k.

Clarity: 4/5
Complexity: 2.5/5
Execution: 4.5/5
Emotion: 3.5/5
---
Solo @ 2:15. (Ends at 2:48) But if you're not going to listen to the whole song, I recommend that you start at at least 2:05 because it's a a great buildup to the solo. ((IMO one of the best cover songs. (The original is by Dio, I believe.)))

i've heard that one before, i recognize the video

clarity: 4/5
complexity: 3/5
execution: 4/4
emotion: 4/5

listen from 5:00 onwards (although most of the song is done on acoustic guitar, then it just changes and a rush of emotion hits you really hard, great song)

Execution: 5/5 (it's improv, so it's very good )
Emotion: 3/5

Clarity: 5/5
Complexity: 5/5 (spluh)
Execution: 5/5
Emotion: 1/5 (there's good reason for that rating, and not necessarily a negative thing. Eruption is a technical orgy of notes, but nothing more. And that's the purpose of the song.)






2:16 onwards. There are FOUR guitars soloing near the end.

Emotion: 3/5

Now, for a song that you simply cannot stop smiling to.







Starts at 1:08 - 1:52 and 2:37 - 3:54
