Sorry, but no.

Oh, and just because nobody has mentioned it (c'mon...)

I'll say "Slippermen" middle part solo.
It's just so funky.

Everybody's got it all wrong...intro AND outro to "Eleventh Earl Of Mar"..unarguably..without question..don't even discuss it with me...and then there's everything throughout "One For The Vine"... and that should be the final word on this topic.

This was the first Genesis track I heard (singles apart), the Seconds Out version.  It remains my favourite Genesis track to this day.  Banks' solo is wonderfully melodic, powerful and full of emotion.


It is absolutely fantastic, although it is somewhat ironical that Banks continually cites SEBTP as one of his least favourite studio albums with the band, owing to his poor performance (his quote). Isn't life strangeConfused


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Firth of Fifth (intro) - it's just beautiful. Otherwise Cinema Show. As somebody else said, there's some fantastic stuff on SEBTP
It's not that I can't find worth in anything, it's just that I can't find worth in enough.

Always stays in my head for days after listening to it.  The opening to 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' I cant get it out of my head now you made me think of it.

Bankshad so many great moments as this thread illustrated. His solos are often highly memorable because they are carefully composed and have great tunes.
 
As well as most of the ones mentioned, I love his Mellotron work on Seven Stones. The chords on that are just fantastic.

I love the intro piano on Firth to Fifth but also the Synth solo in the middle with Phil Collins synchopaiting it nicely withs som tasty drum fills and rolls.

the piano intro to Time Table (my favorite Genesis song for the moment), and Mellotron intro in Watcher of the skye and the synth riff on Abacab is pure class

I think when Hackett uses tapping on Hogweed. For those of you who do not know, he provides the higher harmony.

And that's Tony Banks' best keyboard moment?

It's an amazing moment you snowy dog.

If you use the board's own search button and you let it look for Genesis threads for the last six months and older, you get 13 pages of Genesis threads. You can always revive an old thread that you're interested in or make your own thread Wink
