I only liked this to make a point... This song is not hard at all! I've been playing a little over a year and yet I can play it, pretty much no problem, this should not be on this list!
This song is so amazing! The solo practically blew my ears off! The best solo ever!
The riff near the end is one of the first things I learnt, but the rest, is really hard
Played this in 5th grade perfectlyV3 Comments
This song is so challenging. The muting and weird picking make it crazy hard. I don't think. I've seen anyone play it right and the way John does except for John himself. Should be way higher on this list.
Well.. It is pretty hard already but JM takes it to the next level playing it live, on an acoustic guitar, and improvising sick solos on it. Worse part? He keeps doing the bass lines with the crazy thumb. I think you can master this song down to the note. But that will take you no where once you see some other random Show JM did in an obscure country you haven't heard before and you realise it is the best version of Neon ever, But you can't just ever keep up with it, and the million of variations JM introduces to this song. It is not probably the hardest to play but one pony trick that will get people impressed. It needs to be at least top 20.
One of the hardest songs to play I can't believe this is no where on the list how foolish, just reaching half the cords on this song is nearly impossible.
John Mayer sucks! He's an arrogant little copycat!V4 Comments
The solo for this song is crazy! Anything by Satch is pretty much impossible for the normal guitarist. Just try and learn it
This song is really hard, its solo, it's riffs. Just wonder how Joe Satriani plays it - razors15
Yeah, this song is pretty hard to play, not crazy, but a lot harder than songs in top.
Are you people stupid or something! I am not at all a fan of MAB's music. I would go as far as to say I don't like his music very much. But when it comes to technical ability, I can promise you you won't find any other person who can do this.
I'm not saying MAB is the best musical composer or anything, but when it comes to technicality and difficulty, he should be at the top of this list.
you would need 2 really good guitarists if your not MAB. - russianV1 Comment
Its on a damn acoustic guitar. Nowhere to hide. Its from 1979, and it might as well be from 2079. Difficult is being kind.
By the one and only King Of Surf Guitar. I wish he was in better health. He is currently touring in excruciating pain so that her can pay his medical bills.
Fast stuff.. But I don't play guitar, I play drums, but it still seems flipping fast to me!
Who guitarist, dead or alive can play like this? All technicks together. Bass, rhythm, melody and armony at the same time. He is an alien.V1 Comment
A solo like this can only come from Hizaki and Teru. - tenthsage
It difficult to play guitar play tab Intro Verse Pre Hook Hook and Solo
Just look at the tabs. one of the most difficult solos ever
Lol I'm 14 and can play this with ease. Don't get me wrong, I love My Chemical Romance, but this isn't that hard...
Solid took ages for my friend to masterV1 Comment
It's easy though! One of my first songs to play on guitar.
This should be higher, the solo isn't that easy to nail
The intro is easy, but the last solo is hard.
This isn't very hardV2 Comments
Knopfler's technique is hard to replicate, and hence so is the solo for this classic piece of rock&roll.
I can't believe this song is so far down the list. Just try to duplicate this, and he plays with his fingers not using a pick
Just try and play this one correctly, this one deserves to be in the top 10.
Fingers styleV5 Comments
I've been learning this song for months now, and I think it's the real hardest song ever. Not only is it super complex, it's also a test in precision, speed, intelligence, and stamina. It's 11 minutes of torturing your fingers, as well as your brain.
Unrelenting and fairly tuneless to boot. This will test your cross-picking abilities to the maximum if your hand doesn't cramp up before the end.
Why is this so far down? It took me about 5 minutes just to play the first bar! And that middle section? Christ!
Yes. It's hardest than everything else on this list.V2 Comments
Very fast easily a top 10 clearly not to many guitarists took part in this poll
I'm sorry, but I 100% fail to see how master of puppets or one are more difficult than the first thirty seconds of this song. And seriously, by about 35 seconds in Jeff has used most of the arpeggio shapes out there. If you want to learn arpeggios, finding a tab for this will do you more good than an actual lesson on arpeggios! And also, how many other songs do you find that utilise a seven-string arpeggio? - Nevermore
What?!? I've seen Justin Bieber, Queen Guns n' Roses and so forth on the list... Don't make me laugh! Just listen to this song to understand what does it mean the word "impossible"!
This song is a pretty hard task to accomplish. One should have a complete relaxed picking hand and alternate picking motion. Then try it.V2 Comments
This song is one of the most technically difficult songs in terms of tempo, speed and accuracy for hitting individual hammer-ons, string bends etc. It would take an absolutely godly player to every come close to replicating john's talent in this song
By far the hardest song to duplicate. No question this song done by John Butler is the greatest feat accomplished on a guitar. Check the studio version done in the year 2012
This is the toughest song I ever heard... IT just blows my mind away even if it is played in 11-string Acoustic Guitar... Please listen to this song! John Butler Rocks!V2 Comments
