Paul McCartney was asked to name the best guitar solo he ever played. He praised a solo on a track from The Beatles’ Revolver as well as a song from one of his more recent albums. In addition, Paul discussed his favorite guitar.
During a 2020 interview with GQ, Paul was asked to name his best guitar solo. “What immediately comes to mind is the ‘Taxman’ solo,” he said. “I think that’s pretty good.”
That’s an incredible understatement! The solo from “Taxman” helps open up Revolver on an energetic note. It also makes “Taxman” one of The Beatles’ most fun album tracks. While Paul played the solo on “Taxman,” George Harrison is the only credited writer of the song.
Paul also praised one of his more recent songs. “And then I actually did something on my Egypt Station album, which was a whole track of me playing guitar and that was pretty good,” he said. Paul did not name the song in question from his album Egypt Station.
