Our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "PARISIENNE WALKWAYS" by the legendary guitarist Mr. GARY MOORE. "Parisienne Walkways" is a song by Gary Moore that reached number 8 in the UK Singles Chart in May 1979. The song is featured on Moore's album Back on the Streets and features a vocal from Thin Lizzy frontman, Phil Lynott, who co-wrote the song with Moore. Lynott also played bass guitar on the track, alongside Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey. The melody of "Parisienne Walkways" is based on the jazz standard "Blue Bossa" by Kenny Dorham. It was Gary Moore's signature song. Gary Moore continued to play the song as an encore at concerts throughout his career. The Shadows covered it on their 1979 album String of Hits. Brian May and Kerry Ellis covered the song on their 2017 Album Golden Days.
"Parisienne Walkways" showcased Gary Moore's virtuoso guitar work and quickly became his signature song. "Parisienne Walkways" is one of the greatest guitar solos of all time, maybe even the best ever. To me this is of course amazing song, the emotions that Gary Moore put into it each time he played it, it's mind blowing. The song is played in the key of A minor. Gary Moore uses a multitude of guitar techniques to play this melody in an effort to alter the dynamics or phrasing of the melody. Bending, slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs. Gary Moore is in full force with this one playing in his trademark soaring slow blues style. It is a gorgeous melody that follows the underlying chord progression beautifully. It is one of those melodies where, as soon as you hear it for the first time you will never forget it.
