Amazing song with an amazing solo

130 Pieces - Ken Kitamura
131 Crossroads - Eric Clapton

The mighty Eric Clapton never ceases to amaze with his sheer power and precision, but a formidable contender for his absolute best guitar work, especially his best solo, is the semi-cover of a Robert Johnson song that he did with Cream, Crossroads. The solo is great technically, but the best part is definitely how it feels like a direct extrension of the natural rhythm of the song as well as the devil myths described by the song's lyrics.

132 Stay Away - Ken Kitamura
133 Let It Be - George Harrison

While the single version and a few other updates to the classic Beatles song Let It Be experimented with different guitar solos that were good but not great, the original album version's solo is one of the most emotive instances of guitar playing in history. The lead up is incredible, sure, but without a doubt the most amazing thing about this solo is the way that George Harrison's stinging, wailing, beautiful guitar playing seems to perfectly complement Paul McCartney's vocals with the two almost seeming to fuse into one entity of sound. Few solos, or parts of a song in general, have ever made me feel as strongly emotional as I do when I hear the solo in Let It Be.

What a cool guitar solo by George Harrison Who uses blues slides and single note picking to create an awesome sounding solo which really fits in with the song And a cool ending for one if the worlds greatest Bands

It is the perfect solo there are hardly any other songs like this that are able to use the guitar like George did in this song the guitar is so effective and sound so good a lot of other song just have a simple riff that leads into a solo but this song has an efecctive emotional solo that hits you with awesomeness

My personal favorite solo is from the music video, but I love all versions.

135 Let It Rock - Richie Sambora

from the best bon jovi album slippery when wet that has really rocked - richie4life

136 25 or 6 to 4 - Terry Kath

97 no no no no! Please listen if you are a REAL guitar fan! If you are you know that TERRY KATH belongs in the top ten. For example free from guitar. And Jimmy Hendrix is a fan!

The best guitar solo, no exercises induced licks, just plain expression and virtuoso playing, cannot read notes guitar player, My hero

Best guitar solo of all time - because it is technically amazing but also integrates with the piece perfectly

This is like one of the top 7 guitar solos ever there is no way it should be at 122

137 Achilles Last Stand - Jimmy Page Achilles Last Stand - Jimmy Page

Strange one, but geat. Is an epic style solo, wich normally are really boring or repetitive, but in this case is really fresh. I think this started a new type of solo. He normally doesn't do this type of solos
