Greatest Guitar Solos of Rock and Metal

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Hjärteblod - Pär Hulkoff (Raubtier)

Quite an unknown band, but if you listen to this song you are going to get a real boner.. intro solo is so freaking amazing - freezerman75

202 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Slash
203 Jewel - Jason Becker and Marty Friedman

This is the most emotional melodical solo, its just awesome, I don't see why ''Raining Blood'' is here, its just a total disaster m nothing emotional on it - Wahmmett

204 The Musical Box - Steve Hackett (Genesis)

Another very emotional solo that is is cohesive, wide ranging melodic, operatic and soulful - at the time of its recording there was almost nothing like this.

Powerful, melodic, furious, magic, timeless and ahead of its time (Van Halen copied Steve Hackett, says it all) - AlphaX

205 Zero - Billy Corgan

Listen to the last solo on this song... It is incredible. Whenever I listen to it, I think "woah, I wanna be like Billy Corgan when I grow up. " - ananikangel

206 Sky Overture - Uli Jon Roth

Uli shows why he is an undisputed guitar god in the epic piece. - ybothermatt

207 I Wanna Be Your Man - Michael Grant
208 Beyond the Realms of Death - Glenn Tipton
209 Whats My Name - Miyavi
210 White Lightning - Phil Collen
211 What Begins Ends - Cesar Rodriguez
212 Alone - Matt Tuck

Idiots duffers talking of solos and no Bullet For my Valentine and Lamb Of God... Nothing to say.. Just listen

This is no position a solo like alone should be at! Both matt and padge are awesome and underrated guitarists.. If speed is not the only parameter that decides quality of a solo then where the hell are solos of 'walk with me hell' and 'in your face (cob)' in the list?

213 Almost Easy - Synyster Gates
214 Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - Steve Morse
215 Crucify the Dead - Slash
216 Promise - Slash
217 Double Guitar Solo - Michael Angelo Batio
218 Goodbye to Romance - Randy Rhoads

It's Rhoads' best solo on Blizzard of Ozz hands down, better than Crazy Train. Just listen to it once and you'll be convinced. The passion from the solo is unlike anything I've ever heard before.

219 Switch 625 - Steve Clark

Great guitar work on this. Steve was a very good guitarist.

220 Dr. Feelgood - Mick Mars

Mick Mars is GOD! The song is flat out EPIC!
