The sax line from LeRoi Moore on the Ants Marching by DMB outro will always be my favorite piece of music

Two that come to mind, off-hand, are both from Santana.
1) She's not there, with the classic psyched out guitar solo at the end ("end", its almost 1/2 the song!).
2) Changes. That entire song stands on the shoulders of Carlos's two guitar solos and he never sounded better.

Surprised this one isn't already on here.


The last (for me) recorded Steely Dan notes...a fitting end.

I don’t think these have been mentioned.

Sign in Stranger - Steely Dan, great guitar, epic outro:


Green Earrings - Steely Dan, more amazing guitar outro:


I’m Your Captain - Grand Funk, another epic outro:

I love the ending of Out on the Tiles. It's just a swirling, bounding, cacophony. It's the perfect lead in to Gallows Pole and the softer half of the album.

I always loved the ending of Shapes of Things by The Yardbirds. It ends with mostly the guitar but some of everyone playing a kind of faux echo of fading eighth notes.
Not to veer from the outro premise but this song has amazing changes like from the heavy quarter note downbeat verses to the release of the open backbeat chorus and the sixteenth notes behind the guitar solo. Not to mention the little high hat flourish pick-ups out of the breaks!
These guys deserved more credit than they garnered!

Always loved how the ending of Shine on You Crazy Diamond just fades away, as if into the mists of time.
A master stroke by the band at their height...
