Following the break, Howard played clips of the list's guitar solos from number 30 to number one. As Howard was playing Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing," which was number 18, Fred said he believed all of Jimi's solos should've been on the list. Fred then recalled he'd read years ago that Eric Clapton once saw Jimi perform live, and spent his car ride home crying because he knew he'd never be as good as Jimi was.
Howard later noted that Chuck Berry, whose "Johnny B. Goode" came in at number 12, "invented everything," while Fred admitted he wouldn't have put Slash's solo on "November Rain" as high as it was on the list, which was number six. During a clip of Jimi Hendrix's solo on "All Along the Watchtower," which was number four, Artie joked he knew a fact about Jimi that no one else knew – he was "a leftie."
After going through the list, Howard took calls from listeners who added their own nominees to it. Howard then pointed out he would've included Leslie West's solo on "The Beetle Juice Song" before playing it, and also took a call from Yucko the Clown, who wanted to know if The Who made the list. When Howard responded the group didn't make the top 30, Yucko noted, "Who gives a f'?" and blew his horn twice.
