Jon Herington has played lead guitar in Steely Dan for 15 years and is a devoted student of the band’s original recordings. He recently revealed to Digital Trends a personal favorite lead break from the original Dan albums:

(H)ands down, my favorite solo on any Steely Dan record is Larry Carlton’s Third World Man. It’s one of the greatest pop guitar solos ever recorded. It has a great shape, the whole way it moves and climaxes.
