Best Rock Guitar Duos and Combos

vic

The Top TenXW

1Adrian Smith, Eddie Murray and Janick Gers (Iron Maiden)

There is no contest. You just can't match what all they have done. No one comes close, not even Hammett and Hetfield. A7X is so overrated they should not be on the list.

The best guitar combo ever... a true classic.
Samples: Fear of the dark, Number of the beast, Hallowed bu thy name. - vic

Defiantly, Iron Maiden Rules, although its not Eddie Murray its Dave Murray.
Up the Irons

2Downing & Tipton (Judas Priest)

Thi sguys needs no introduction. Great players.. - vic

3Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield (Metallica)

The most recognizable guitar duet. They complement each other greatly. Since the 80's till now if you have a metal band after you can play Metallica tunes you are ready to go.
Samples: One, Master of puppets, Call of Ktulu - vic

really? hetfield and hammett are the greatest guitar duo al all heavy metal bands... what they compose... what they fell they are a great music unit that seriously rocks

4Marty Friedman and Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)

Definitely the best guitar duo of the 90's, Marty and Dave did some of the greatest riffs ever (Holy wars) and some of the greatest solos (Tornado of Souls, Hangar 18). Honestly these two are probably better than James and Kirk, considering both Marty and Dave do incredible solos together.

The moist technicahl duo ever, too bad they are not longer together.
Samples: Hangar 18, She wolf, Tornado of souls. - vic

Screw avenged sevenfold. Bunch of nu metal crap. Go true metal. Go megadeth.

5Synister Gates and Zachy Venegance (Avenged Sevenfold)

The new kids in town have arrived. The cross between Metallica and Iron Maiden. Truly talented, could be No 1 if they keep improving. They complement each other perfectly.
Samples: Bat Coutntry, Sidewinder, Nightmare - vic

Syn is an awesome and in about 5 years time, he will be the greatest lead guitarist ever. And Zacky, well, he isn't the best rhythm guitarist, but when combined with synyster gates, they are just too awesome. Listen to Bat Country, Beast and the harlot, Save Me, Eternal rest, I won't see you tonight part 2, Nightmare, Sidewinder, Carry On.
And it's SYNYSTER and ZACKY

7Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen (G3 2003)

An amazing trio. But don't think they lived up to the hype.

8Laiho & Kuoppala (Children of Bodom)

The best Death bands players ever. Laiho is a master. Too bad they are not longer together.

9Angus Young & Malcolm Young (AC/DC)

People say needs to be higher when it doesn't really deserve to be higher but THIS deserves to be higher! - ParasN2000

The most brutal combo ever. This guys have a unique sound, no one writes heavier riffs and creaming solos like thes guys.
Samples: Angel of Death, Season in the abyss, Skeletons of society. - vic

The Contenders

11Slash and Izzy Stradlin (Guns and Roses)

The late 80 early 90's version of the Rolling stones. Izzy provided the simple cool riffs and Slash the most classics solos ever... not flashy just pure soul.

12Munky and Head (Korn)

The creators of Nu-metal and 7 string heavy riff playing. Too bad thery are not longer together.
