Greatest Guitar Songs (Rock)

It's simple. Greatest guitar songs ever. Title, band, guitarist.

The Top Ten

1 Alison Hell (Annihilator, Jeff Waters)
2 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page)

if anyone can beat that dramatic solo, I would stop listening to music - fpsscarecrow

3 Highway Star (Deep Purple, Ritchie Blackmore)

The riff is pretty easy, but the both organ and guitar solos are highest quality. This is example of solo that Page couldn't play properly if you ask me. I mean, no offense to Jimmy, but he's overrated as hell.

4 Sweet Child O' Mind (Guns N' Roses, Slash)

anyone with that insane sense of fashion must be able to guitar insanely - fpsscarecrow
