Most Beautiful Guitar Solos


The Top TenXW

1Give In to Me - Michael Jackson

Slash does an awesome job on this solo -

2Comfortably Numb (2nd solo) - Pink Floyd

A comepletely amazing solo, probably the best ever. Actually, I just remembered free bird... - nic1997ps3

My absolute favourite of all time. I saw this in concert and it just blew me away!

Simply beautiful, not just super fast strings of notes (eruption), repeated licks (freebird) or empty playing. This solo is filled with such emotion translated beautifully by one of the best guitarists in my opinion.

Did great David Gilmour, the master

3Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses

The Most beutiful Solo I know -

4Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Far better than all other songs on this list (Comfortably Numb being #2). 3rd greatest next to Eruption and November Rain

5Don't Cry - Guns N' Roses

Sad song especially slash's solo. The intro is the best too. One of the best guitar solo of rock and metal.. Should be in top 3

6Ordinary World - Duran Duran

I guess the most underrated guitar solo ever... It actually makes the song better each time you hear it... I guess many of us who know the song hear this song just for the guitar solo

A great solo by one of the most underrated rock band. I agree that this guitar solos is way too underrated and I bet it gives the essence two this song.. Yes truely a great guitar solo

A great song by a not so famous band... I remember this song back then and I used 2 listen to it all day long - amitcornelius1

10Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas PriestV1 Comment

The Contenders

11Highway Star - Deep Purple
12Blackbird - Alter Bridge
13November Rain - Guns N Roses

The outro will make you cry

First solo is like the greatest solo ever

14Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Most awesome solo, if not, the best metal solo of all time that has ever been created. Marty Friedman put all his talent into this one solo... Rate it high. - alexitahmid

15Sleeping Sun - NightwishV1 Comment
16Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
17Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Jimmy page in this music plays like a real boss, and the song is insanly beatiful.

18Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
19Floods - Pantera

All the other songs at the top are just up there due to them being mainstream. Although Pantera can be considered mainstream as well, this song isn't. The solo and outro are incredibly moving. One of the most powerful solos I have ever heard.

How is this not on this list? The outro solo is one of the most beautiful, most underrated solos I've ever heard.

One and only solo to make my tears flow as movingly as the string bends, May You Rest In Peace Darrell Abbott, Forever In My Heart And Memories With You Will Always Be Loved, See You Again Brother! M/
