The perfect solo is the same for any genre. Whatever serves the song. The first example of this that comes to mind is Alice In Chains, Man in a Box. Not difficult to play and not technical but absolutely nails the vibe and adds to the song.

This song contains two minimalist solos (which is an understatement) that fit the song perfectly.

Gary Moore did the original solo that Brian Robertson plays.
Robertson and Gorham nailed the solos on Live and Dangerous.
Hadn’t heard of Tony Peluso before this. One of my favourite Solos of all time.

I like the song, the tone of the guitar, and the short, tasty solo (~i:50) is one of my favorites. I also like the chords and the outro...
