Greatest Guitar Solos

161Walk All Over You - Angus YoungV2 Comments
162Midnight Blues - Gary Moore

I love this solo, but have you ever heard The Loner & Empty Rooms from Live in Stockholm? I have never heard such talent from both these solos. They are each 15 minutes long. They are played with such passion and I can't believe this man is not mentioned as one of the best guitar players of all time. I have heard many he is better than most of the ones listed here. I only wish I had had the extreme fortune of hearing him in person. He is a living legend. DeDe

Better than most guitar players on or off this list. Check him out. You will be amazed.

One of may top solos from the most underated player ever! 10 out of 10!
