The Top TenXW

1For the Love of God - Steve Vai

This song is so many emotions at the same time. So powerful, so enlightening. I never get tired of hearing it. - LizardKing99

So much emotion and technical difficulty at the same time. Only steve can do that.

2Surfing With the Alien - Joe Satriani
3Eruption - Van Halen
4Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen
5Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci
6Soothsayer - Buckethead
7Tender Surrender - Steve Vai
8Guitars Suck - Bumblefoot

People who can play this song, do let me know... Waiting! - ameentheguitarist23

9Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson
10Technical Difficulties - Paul Gilbert

The Contenders

11Misirlou - Dick Dale & His Del-Tones

It is the best of its kind... There is a voice of yelling... Other than that, it is fully instrumental and it should be at least in top 5 instead of 12...

Better known as the theme from Pulp Fiction

12The Godfather Theme - Slash
13The Extremist - Joe Satriani
14Apache - The Shadows
15Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix

This song does have vocals, therefore, it is not an instrumental song. - ameentheguitarist23

16Classical Gas - Mason Williams

Acoustic guitar no less!

17Leyenda - Andres Segovia

Better than Hendrix, better than Clapton, and both of them would quickly agree; this guy essentially invented guitar virtuosity.

18Pipeline - The Ventures

So expressive, you can almost feel the ocean waves breaking over your head.

19Walk Don't Run - The Ventures
20Always With Me, Always With You - Joe Satriani
