Greatest Guitar Solos of Rock and Metal

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Iron Man - Tony Iommi
82 Mr Crowley - Randy Rhoads

This is one of my favorite songs yet alone one of my favorite solos of all time, deserves to be higher

I can't believe this solo isn't even on the list yet. Rhoads was a genius and this was his masterpiece

83 Starship Trooper - Yes
84 Rest in Peace - Nuno Bettencourt
85 Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix

A track where Hendrix shows his full guitar potential and it's not in the top 10. - RandomGuy456

86 To All That Are Dead - Ben Savage
87 Bouree - Yngwie Malmsteen
88 Angel of Death - Kerry King/Jeff Hanneman
89 Back In Black - Angus Young

Should be #1! Malcolm and Angus Young=Best guitar duo EVER!

Angus young back in black he wasn't crazy or rushing the solo
He just did it in perfect timing with fast fingers
Bad ass solo in the middle & mind blowing solo at the end of the song



90 Beat It - Eddie Van Halen

Better than eruption (eruption 2nd) - gemcloben

91 High Hopes - David Gilmour

One of the most underrated solos of all time. At least give it a try. - zxm

92 To End the Rapture - Synyster Gates
93 The Best of Times - John Petrucci
94 Mama I'm Coming Home - Zakk Wylde
95 Still Got the Blues - Gary Moore Still Got the Blues - Gary Moore

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

96 The Fletcher Memorial Home - David Gilmour
97 In Pieces - Brad Delson
98 The End - Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon
99 The Number of The Beast - Adrian Smith/Dave Murray

You ALL are crazy!
There was never a smoother player than Dave Murray & innovative as Adrian Smith

100 Infidel - Tony Lazaro
