Ryan, I was browsing Guitar Player mag the other day, the 3/06 issue. And I may even be wrong about the magazine, (may have been a very similar pub.), but there was "10 most monsterous licks of all time" as a leading piece.
Now these aren't absolutely my favs, but I thumbed through, looking at the tabs and playing them in my head. The tabs stirred my memory, more accurately. But I was amazed to see that out of the top ten, about 6 or 7, at least, were McLaughlin licks, and not new ones either. Man, there musta been 4 from "Birds of Fire", and a couple from other old sources.
And when I looked at the tab for them, which I had never seen, not having listened to the albums for some yrs, I could see why they were A#1 monsters.
I know, that's not the same thing as your post, "The best...." but thought ya might be interested if you see the publication around. Man those things were mean!, haha. And frankly I like his later Indian raga stuff.
