Best James Hetfield Solosrock2metal Although Kirk Hammett was the lead guitarist in Metallica, James Herfield did some guitar solos.
The Top Ten
Probably the best solo in the world. Just so smooth and beautiful. It fits very good with the song when it kind of dies right there and this amazing solo starts. It's bringing the song back to life again. I just love it.
I watched a video of Master of Puppets live 2004 Sydney, and the crowd was singing along to the first solo. It sent chills down my spine! gr8 song
No doubt about this one. 2nd to this solo should be To Live Is To Die. Then One.
The best solo ever! M/V 3 Comments
Where others say "Stairway to Heaven" is best solo ever, this is it for me. Pure feel, blues, emotion - it's on spot. Made my fingers bleed on lots of occasions...
Slow, simple, melodic, full of emotions. Perfect solo for this amazing song

It is not only very fast, but there is a beautiful transition between james' solo and kirk's solo. So much better than the Master of puppet solo
Hetfield's solos aren't about speed. They're about emotion, clarity, and pure skill. I don'y know anyone else that has the same type of solos as James, and Suicide & Redemption sums it all up.
It's a masterpiece and is literally the funnest thing to play on guitar.V 1 Comment
Sweet solo man! You rock the house my man. I love you so much, you're my idol yo. I wanna be like you when I become big yo. But kirk kicks your ass man yo peace yo
The final solo is a double solo of James and Kirk - rock2metal
Are you serious? Master & Nothing Else Matters are good but THIS is THE BEST Metallica solo. Yes friends, not Kirk, James. It is so melancholic and beautiful that it makes me tear up every time, and paired with one of Kirk's best solos and the excellent melodies of the whole tune makes this top tier when it comes to Metallica music and metal in general.
It's a double solo from James and Kirk - rock2metal
Yeah, it's from Load, but it's still an awesome song, WITH a Talkbox solo courtesy of Papa Het!
