Most Underrated Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Breadfan - Tony Bourge (Budgie)
102Atom Heart Mother Suite - David Gilmour (Pink Floyd)
103Wet Sand - John Frusciante

How was this not even in the list?
By far the best solo by frusciante. the solo at the end just touches your soul. when the first time I heard the song I was speechless for a minute. I don't know why I felt like crying. so powerful is the guitar solo

104Heirate Mich - Richard Z. Kruspe (Rammstein)
105Blood Brothers - Janick Gers
106Queen - We Will Rock You
107The Bitter End - Dave Baksh (Sum 41)
108Bulls on Parade - Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine)
109Have a Nice Day - Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi)
110The Killing Road - Marty Friedman & Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)
111Starrider - Mick Jones (Foreigner)

I didn't appreciate Mick as a great guitarist until I heard this solo... Just blew me away, especially the live versions. - bighercules

112Hands - Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal

Despite all the hate around new G'N'R members, most people never tap into his solo stuff, and the hands solo is just an example how underrated is Bumblefoot.

113Hitch A Ride - Tom Scholz

This solo may not be the fastest or the longest, but the way Tom shows off the sound that nobody had heard before that point is incredible. The fact that he played every instrument on the first album except for drums makes it even more awesome!

114Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour (Pink Floyd)

This list would never be complete without the great David Gilmour from Pink Floyd. He had shown us for many years that he can and could pull off a very nerve chilling solo, and Comfortably Numb is the target. The solo is a continuous three minutes of suspense and depressing notes from a psychedelic mind-flowing 'lunatic' who refuses to hide his inner talent, and placed the song to a comfortable number one spot for more than fifteen years. Since then his solo gradually became one of the top solos in the world. If no one agrees for this solo, then there will be a major consequence

115No More Hell to Pay - Michael Sweet (Stryper)
116Master Exploder - Jack Black (Tenacious D)
117Rock Bottom - Michael Schenker

Most people probably won't vote for this simply because they haven't heard it. To them I say : it is on YouTube. Go listen to the greatest guitar solo of all time

118My Back Pages - Roger McGuinn
119Muffin Man - Frank ZappaV1 Comment
120Brighton Rock - Brian May
