    Thanks, Foro, for hosting this mammoth of a tournament. It's interesting to see how the ranking turned out.

    I never thought Dennis Stratton would make the top 20.

    Thanks to everyone who made this possible!

    Thanks for all your efforts, Foro and NP!
    That's not how I would have ranked the solos, but I had a lot of fun participating.

    Awesome awesome awesome, Foro! Good work NP also! :ok:

    Overall, I'm pretty disappointed with the results though. Five Adrian Smith solos in the top seven is just too much.

    That was a great tournament. Huge props to Forostar for managing all the data. I'm happy with the winner, but I need time to take a look at the rest of the results.

    I'm looking forward to TBoS mini-game! Are we going to do this? It should be fun - the amount of material to cover is not that overwhelming.

    Agreed. 1 and 2 should have been the back to back Davey solos on Prodigal Son.

    Yes, certainly! That would be a nice little epilogue to the game.

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    My favorite Maiden solo won the game, the Top 6 is identical to my own Top 6. I'm a bit pissed about Adrian's Paschendale solo not making the Top 10, but can't complain.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Great stuff guys.
    And we even get a nice little Olympic touch with gold, silver and bronze fonts.

    I've never ranked my top solos before, but I can tell you these are contenders:
    Murray: Powerslave, Final Frontier
    Gers: Alchemist, Como Estais, Here to Eternity
    Smith: Sea of Madness, Stranger, Different World

    Off the top of my head the best is Different World, but I'm sure I've overlooked a few that might be top 10.
