Most Difficult Guitar Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Discipline - King Crimson

Two lead guitars one playing in 14/16 and the other in 15/16, then every sixteen bars they change to a different progression of notes

102 Entre Dos Aguas - Paco de Lucia Entre Dos Aguas - Paco de Lucia

Seriously, no one ever heard this song? Flamenco at its best...
No John McLaughlin in the top 100 And Yngwie Malmsteen nowhere even within the top 50s?
And how many has actually mastered the solo of "A moment of Clarity" by Chuck Schuldiner?

103 Killing Floor - Jimi Hendrix Killing Floor - Jimi Hendrix

Good luck with this masterpiece.

104 Hotel California - Eagles Hotel California - Eagles

One of the favorite

105 Holy Angel - Midnight Messiah Holy Angel - Midnight Messiah
106 Frame by Frame - King Crimson Frame by Frame - King Crimson
107 Erotomania - Dream Theatre Erotomania - Dream Theatre

Master of puppet's is in the top ten and this isn't even on the list?

First 30s of the song and you got 3 bars of 5/4 and 1 bar of 9/8, that's enough

108 The Crusade - Trivium The Crusade - Trivium
109 Scream - Avenged Sevenfold Scream - Avenged Sevenfold

Even Synyster Gates himself said that this is Scream has the hardest solo to play.

110 Bad Horsie - Steve Vai Bad Horsie - Steve Vai
111 Magic and Mayhem - Yngwie Malmsteen
112 Swing Life Away - Rise Against Swing Life Away - Rise Against

Not that hard to replicate the sound and play. Still an awesome song though from one of my favorite. Bands.

114 Take No Prisoners - Megadeth Take No Prisoners - Megadeth

This song makes even an advanced guitarist stop to play for not getting a tendonitis. Not that hard to manage in my eyes, but shows you, you are not trained enough. By the songs listed in front of this it seems like here are mostly guitarists voting for the song they are playing right now. And not everybody ever get to the level to try out this song.

115 B.R.O. - Paul Gilbert B.R.O. - Paul Gilbert

That song's guitar solo is extreme and is nothing I could play in my thirty-two years in playing guitar. To be honest, that solo is not harmonic. All I see in that solo is just making noise, I do not even know if that song is in G Major, A Minor or E Minor. Harmonic solos just sound so much more elegant. I have no clue on what is even going on in that song!

116 Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC

It use E7(9+) chords

117 Scorched - Spawn of Possession Scorched - Spawn of Possession

The song itself is more complex than A lot of solos but there isn't anything over and above. Basically it's just the sheer amount of notes in the song that become A problem not the actual difficulty of any part of it really (although only the better players will be able to play it.. let alone actually play it cleanly. )

Don't bother listening to it, you're not going to understand much.

118 Preaching Blues - Robert Johnson Preaching Blues - Robert Johnson

Your probably going to Hell if you learn this, just saying. Pretty hard too.

119 Capillarian Crest - Mastodon Capillarian Crest - Mastodon

A very difficult song to play cleanly

120 Full Tank - Blues Saraceno Full Tank - Blues Saraceno

Poor me killed m fingers trying to learn this one give it a try and you fingers will die
