Greatest Rock Guitar Solos of the 21st Century


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Blood Brothers - Iron Maiden
22Riding The Eagle - Primal Fear

Really fast, technical and melodic solo. How fast? - imagine your plane is taking off!
The solo is also brilliantly paired with the drums for a maximum effect. This drummer is such a gem - his musicality and skills are stunning (Randy Black). - Metal_Treasure

23Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave

Tom Morello Solo, enough Said

24Invincible - Muse
25Tear Away - Drowning Pool
26Dracula - Iced Earth
27Frontiers - Omnium Gatherum
28Anastasia - Slash

Unbelievable! The solo is the best guitar piece I've heard in recent years. I think slash's new material is quite unknown and underrated, it is easily equal in greatness to Guns n' Roses and every classic/hard rock fan should give a listen. For the song anastasia, just give the song 1 minute, and if you're a guitarist yourself I can guarantee you'll want to learn it after one minute of the song! Iii: )'

In this song slash have good solo

29The Great Pandemonium - Kamelot
30Get Fisted - Skull Fist

Pretty fast, long and absulutely gorgeous solo by a new speed metal band, formed in 2006. - Metal_Treasure

31The Glass Prison - Dream Theater
32A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation - Trivium
33Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce

Yeah, if you like tasteless garbage

34Dethrone Tyranny - Gamma Ray
35Bitter Taste - Three Days Grace
36Sudden Death - Megadeth

Intro solo is so awesome.
It's fast, technical and moody.
Best Megadeth solo since "Tornado Of Souls".
I think that is best guitar solo in 21 st century.
But in my opinion Disturbed's "Stricken" is also Great.

37Awakenings - Symphony X
38Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom

Best band I've heard in a long time

39Supernova - Dragonland
4044 Minutes - Megadeth
