One of the greatest solo - no one before put such an amazing solo in a songV1 Comment
One of Ritchies best and nonstop guitar performances, this song is punishing from start to finish.V1 Comment
Great solo. You can hear Mustaine's influence on it, combined with Kirk Hammeth's play. Every person who likes metal genre must hear it.
It's writes by Dave Mustaine not Hammett
Any way it's best Metallica solo
In my opinion, the best solo of metalica. Is fast and awersome. Epic guitar of Kirk Hammett. The best
Guys you really underrate judas priest but there so good and have the best metal solos I've ever heard go on youtube and type in judas priest guitar solos and you'll find a lot of great solos here is a list of some of there best painkiller, all guns blazing, ram it down, beyond the realms of death, one shot at glory, touch of evil those are just a few that you really need to check out
Wow... Obviously no one has heard this song. I don't know how you can listen to any music without listening to this. Every single instrument on this song is perfect. The drum intro the incredible guitar solo, and the vocals... Should be in the top ten.
This song is on the list twice. Just explains how wicked the solo is.
This the most emotional solo he has ever written and its almost 7 minutes long even though people only count the shredding as the solo I count the entire thing and it is a masterpiece of art and shows his true dedication to the guitar and the way that he plays it with more feel than probably anyone else on the planet. LONG LIVE BIG B.
Buckethead is a genius with a guitar. I don't see how this isn't higher on the list. For those of you who haven't heard it. Please do. It is a true emotional masterpiece.
You can find everything in this solo the amazing riffs, the speed and the emotions.. It's without a doubt a masterpiece.. But an underrated one
This guy plays emotion! Enough said!V2 Comments
Best Avenged Sevenfold solo
Vote for this, can't see this down at 61
Satriani speaks, or rather, plays for himself in this one. - ybothermatt
Jimmy truly makes his Les Paul sing and cry during this somewhat lengthy solo. The beating of the drums in the background express anger and desperation which harmonize very well with this solo.
How in the world is "Bad Medicine" at number 6? Richie Sambora is not a very good guitarist. However, Jimmy Page can play in any style, any day. That is why at least ONE of Jimmy's solos should be number 1.
It's the emotion in the notes and the phrasing in chords
That make this solo
amazing solo why has no one heard of this?
This solo does have some fast playing like many other metal solos but it contains an emotional feel that many of the other solos do not have.
Truly spectacular, it's so hard to find a guitar solo with exceptional skill, creativity, and emotion all at the same time. The outro is the second half.
This is my favourite solo, ever. I don't understand how this is only in the 50's, at the very least it should up in the 20's, it is simply amazing.
Its simply breathtaking!V8 Comments
Come on people! Have any of you even listened to this?!?! This solo is why the guitar was invented...jezz!
Best damb guitar solo ever. It is the best sequence of one of the best albums of all "time"!V2 Comments
It's an amazing song and the solo is awesome.
Love Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre cool, Mike dirnt and Jason White
This is a wonderful attempt of Jimmy's to play a blues song and he really pulled it off. Due to the fact that this song is mostly based on improvisation, it makes a great live performance.
What? This is the one of the most emotional solos I've ever heard. Deserves a better position!
Jimmy Page's Solo in this song is better than in Stairway to Heaven. - malamJONES
Great solo. One of the finest guitarist but also one of the most underrated.
I agree Gary Moore had some very metal sounding pieces and an overall predisposition to metal. To me 'Out in the fields' is a great power metal song. Everything speaks metal: pretty fast and non-bluesy song, the riff is a stand-alone melody, the solo is a metal solo, lyrical theme is dark, and so on. One of the greatest songs I've ever heard. No wonder at least 10 metal bands did covers.
Hard to believe Moore was not already on the list. Picked this song as it features one of his classic solo's. Metal Heads should check out his G Force album which has Van Halenesque solos
