Best or favorite Fripp guitar solo. Live recordings donīt count. Iīll go for the excellent solo in "Sartori in Tangier", from the Beat album... What about you?

"St. Elmo's Fire" from Brian Eno's "Another Green World.
Not only his best solo, but one of the most amazing guitar solos ever.
 
If we're talking strictly KC, the accoustic guitar solo in "Cirkus" is my personal favorite.
Actually, theres a few of them in that song, and they're all very impressive.

Now that is different!

His solo in Starless is the superlative two note guitar solo.

But I must say overall his best guitar pieces lie in Fracture and its counterpart FraKctured. The complexities of those pieces is mind boggling and the level of playing to accomplish pieces like that is unlike anything I've ever heard.

I agree with you on Fracture and Starless. They are fantastic as well... The starless 'solo' is actually more than two notes. He sits on a single note to great effect before moving on to the next and then the next... It sounds like two notes because it utilizes two different strings to produce the same note.

Yup Sartori in Tangier, St Elmo's Fire,.....I can't make a choice, so much diverse and incredible works!
I will add his work with Bowie, listen to the solo on Scary Monsters and Super Creeps, just fabulous!

HI all,

I really love his solo at the end of God's Monkey on the live Damage album.
It's just tearing it's way through the mix - great!

The reason it sounds so good is that two strings are used and the tone of the note varies because of subtle bending of the second string. Using one note on one string is nowhere near as interesting.

No one has mentioned The Emperor In His War Room, which is a nice, liquid-y double-tracked excursion.

The solo at the end of the Lizard suite is also very amazing.
