Greatest Guitar Songs (Rock)

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

The Top TenXW

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

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

3Highway 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.

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

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