Greatest Guitar Solos of Rock and Metal

The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Geek 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.

142Bat out of Hell - Todd Rundgren

The song has 2 solos both great 1st around 30 seconds and 2nd around 7 minutes

143No Boundaries - Michael Angelo Batio

Oh come on you can't be serious...
No Boudaries 139? That is probably one of the most difficult guitar songs ever written...

144Wet Sand - John Frusciante

The solo in this is better than the one in scar tissue and dani California.
How come this is not even on the list?
It deserves to be at least in the top 20! Sad to see that so few people have heard this song

This is the best guitar solo ever because a guitar solo isn't just bout speed it's bout rhythum and that's what john does and it should be in the top 5 if you want to listen to a good solo then wets and is the one and by the greatest guitarist ever go on frusciante

145Money For Nothing - Mark Knopfler
146Badfish - Bradley Knowell
147Muffin Man - Frank Zappa

this is so sick the first 2 minutes he's just talking about a muffin man then he just balls out shreds like a freaking mad man

148Walk This Way - Joe Perry

how could this possibly not be on the list?!?

149Burn - Ritchie Blackmore
150Every Rose Has It's Thorn - CC Deville
151Hellraiser - Zakk Wylde
152Seven Nation Army - Jack White
153Don't Keep Me Wonderin' - Duane Allman
154Strange Ways - Ace Frehley

love that solo ace all about heart and soul street sound uses atleast 4 effects great sound

155Kissing The Shadows - Alexi Laiho

Probably the best CoB song with one of the most technical solos Alexi has ever done.

156Into the Sunset - Vinnie Moore

What an amazing song - All his solo albums a amazing and his contribution to the world of guitar is legendary. Love the UFO stuff his does as well - A great band member
