Most Difficult Guitar Songs


The Contenders: Page 7XW

121While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles feat. Eric Clapton

AMAZING SOLO very emotional.

Found this hard at first

122Poison Was the Cure - Megadeth

The riff is so shred crazy, even slowed down it is hard

"Megadeth riffs are like other bands' solos"

123Mouth for War - Pantera
124Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

I played this song and the timing on this song is possibly the most weird, thing I've seen it took me years to figure it out.

It changes Time multiple times (no pun intended) throughout the RIFF. Oh, and also the solo

The riff isn't hard, but the thing the kills me is the solo

Awesome, difficult turn around

125Black Widow of la Porte - John 5

Just an impossible song. Why is this so far back?

126Paranoid Android - Radiohead

Try it. I dare you.

127Metropolis Pt. 1 - Dream Theater

It is CRAZY hard! The synchronized guitar and keyboard parts are so fast and hard!

128Bleed - MeshuggahV1 Comment
129Caprici Di Diablo - Yngwie Malmsteen

There is no comments. Just try to play it.

This should be in the top 10 and not at #187. - Metal_Treasure

130Eugene's Trick Bag - Steve Vai

Eugenes trick bag is one of the most technically difficult Eugenes trick bag is one of the hardest songs I have ever come across, its pretty much two minutes of straight shredding and complex arpeggios, it took hours on a metronome to even get close to finishing it

131Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

Maybe not the most difficult, but I like it

132For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica
133Transcend - Polyphia

The song is just insane. If you can play it, then congrats!

134When the Water Breaks - Liquid Tension Experiment

Holy crap a song that actually belongs on this list.

135Girl Afraid - The Smiths

Literally Impossible, not merely a matter of technique like a lot of the metal songs on this list. Totally original and nowhere near the same as anything you've ever tried to play or will try to play again.

136Larks Tongues In Aspic (Part 1) - King Crimson
137The Dark Eternal Night - Dream Theater
138Panic Attack - Dream Theater
139Damage, Inc. - Metallica
140Speed of Light - Stratovarius
