Hardest Songs to Play on Guitar

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Hell's Kitchen - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)

You've gotta be kidding me, there's many in the top 15 that don't even come close to this

42Riff Raff - AC/DC

NO! What? Why is this even on this list?

43Cult of Personality - Living Colour
44Ulazak U Harem - Smak

Just look it up...

45Hot for Teacher - Van Halen

This one is more difficult than Eruption in my opinion.

What kind of list is this without Hot For Teacher!?

I'm Learning To Play This And I'm 10 It's Really Hard - BeatlesFan1964

46Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold
47Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix
48La Villa Strangiato - Rush

Even Rush had difficulty playing this live and they wrote the song.

49Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

The first time I heard this I went insane. harder that most metal songs

50That Was Just Your Life - Metallica
51Forty Six and Two - Tool

It sounds easy, it looks easy, but it is a LIVING NIGHTMARE FROM HELL. I can play Technical Difficulties, Holy Wars, Hangar 18, AND Tornado of Souls (and for the noobs out there, one and eruption). But this song is the dumbest thing in the world. See, it may not have solos, but the structure is bizarre and there's too many variations on one riff. It's like the Holy Wars intro on steroids. Seriously, if you don't belive me, go try to learn it. Don't take any short cuts, just learn it riff by riff. You will die.

52Diary of a Madman - Ozzy Osbourne

I can't even figure out the first 20 seconds of this! Hardest thing I've ever tried to play! (and I can play some hard things)

53Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
54Painkiller - Judas Priest

I think this is #1 on the top tens. An 11 year old played Eruption on Stage of a Steel Panther concert. Never seen an 11 year old play Painkiller before.

I have it all down except for that darn solo. - Fiend

56Torn Between Scylla And Charybdis - Trivium
57Freak Show Excess - Steve Vai
58Gemini - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)
59Electric Eye - Judas Priest
60Nottingham Lace - Buckethead

Great composition.. Full of emotion.. Fast and fantastic.. Buckethead is just amazing.. He's the best guitarist but is clearly underrated.
