This is a true one-note solo.

Hmm, I like the idea of that one-note mix tape, but surely the first one is more than one string, and the second one has pitch-bending going into semi-tone range. Will keep listening though.

four years pass...

Beiss Mich [Bite Me] by Fraulien Wunder. This and Cinnamon Girl are the best, I think. Len Bright is pretty cool too.

There's a solid chapter about this subject in Ben Ratliff's book "Every Song Ever."

Agreed with those who said it above: Neil Young is the master at one-noters although my favorite is Phil Manzanera's on Eno's "The True Wheel," possibly my favorite Eno song.

that "absolutely the worst solo" is pretty great, come on now

Seen them live a couple of times. They didn't have a sax player but they are certainly musos.

Cake's "I Will Survive" has a pretty great solo, which is one note until almost the end
