The Contenders: Page 7

121 Paradise City - Slash
122 XXX For You - Ichirou Cipher Takigawa (D'erlanger)
123 A Gunshot To The Head Of Trepidation- Corey Beaulieu/Matt Heafy

Aww come on. No one likes Trivium around here. Listen to it, its epic.

! Come on that is the best solos ever I've never seen because it's like a dream.

124 Everytime I Die - Alexi Laiho

107? Seriously?!?! Even if the solo isn't as difficult as afterlife, but the tone of this solo suits the song thoroughly! The feeling, the bends, the tremolo work is just too awesome in the entire song! Should be in the top 10 at least

125 Surfing With The Alien - Joe Satriani
126 Three Days - Dave Navarro

Stairway to heaven of the 90's... Without the overplay or recognition

Dave Navarro is the guitarist, but the band is Jane's Addiction, dumbass.

127 Third Eye - Adam Jones

I have never heard anybody play guitar like Adam does in this song...the entire song is a guitar solo with other instruments aranged around it.

128 Blue Sky - Duane Allman/Dicky Betts
129 Hour I - Matthias Jabs

Very nice solo that maybe soumds nusual. But i think it's great!

130 Purple Rain - Prince

True perfection, nonetheless incredibly underarrated solo.
You have to vote for this one if you think EMOTION comes first when raking solos.

Listen to it again, and trully vote for the solos that gives you

131 Pieces - Ken Kitamura
132 Road To Nowhere - Zakk Wylde

You really should listen to this one.. very emotional and technical solo, from the ozzy's 1991 'No more tears' album

133 Bulls on Parade - Tom Morello
134 Hells Bells - Angus Young
135 Star Spangled Banner - Jimi Hendrix

Never gets any better. This solo deserves #1 on the list and almost all can agree to that, even those who voted Eruption by Eddie Van Halen. Totally Awesome.

136 Know Your Enemy - Tom Morello
137 Them Bones - Jerry Cantrell

If more people listen to this solo, then it would definitely be at least top 50

138 Jerry Was a Race Driver - Larry Ler Lalonde
139 Whipping Post - Duane Allman
140 Geek U.S.A. - Billy Corgan

Billy Corgan is a highly underrated guitar player and is very good at what he does. I am disapointed that this song is so far down the list. Just look on you tube at one of his solos before he made the Smashing Pumpkins when was younger. And another great thing about him is that he doesn't think that much of himself like Slash and Joe Sattiani.
