I think that Buzz can play a solid lead, but has limited range. He treats solos more like a texture with dissonant string bends and many of them have similar approaches. Not metal, not blues. One of my favorites is Youth of America and I think Hund is good too! Both of those are a little different. Mark D gets credit for any actual shredding on a Melvins album. (Ex. Fick Fader)

A solo needs context imho. I don't hear Buzz as a guitarist who sings with his guitar, generally, but he can take a beat and add "texture" as you said. I dig "Graveyard" where I think he's intentionally making use of the space.

Mark's solos, though, whew! Some technical/showy, some lyrical, some bluesy, but always transformative.

I think his way to approach solos is awesome, I like to call them "anti-solos" because they don't sound like the conventional guitar solo you usually listen to... I'm still trying to figure out how he does it because I simply can't do it that way.

I think that Buzzo guitar solo on 'divorced' is pretty much the epitome of ultra train wreck playing of all time, hands down.

That's not Adam? I should check the credits again.

I also like some of the solos on the Jelvins records but I also think some may be Jones.

There are two small guitar solos, clearly the first one (08:45) is from Adam and the second solo (08:56) is from Buzz... In the same way, the drum solo duel features Dale on the left channel and Danny on the right channel.
