Best Avenged Sevenfold Guitar Solos
The Top Ten
CRAZIEST SOLO EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE
YET SO BEAUTIFULLY MANAGED
GREAT TIMING, GREAT SKILLS, GREAT SPEED AND GREAT CO-ORDINATION BETWEEN BOTH THE GUITARISTS MAKE THIS SOLO AWESOME
BEST OF THE BEST
That's THE REASON he's THE BEST GUITARIST (SYN)
NO WAY! I personally think its kinda sloppy compared to others that SYN has done. Just fast picking really. A solo isn't all about speed, it has to have a good balance of "bad ass" and structure. Buried alive is one of the best in my opinion.
k that song has sick(and I mean totally wickedly awesome)solos and I am a synner(what I call synyster gates fans) and I love his high singing voice! holy ravioli cherrybiscuits fizzledizzle! A7X foREVERENDever! I have a twin.
Awesome solo by syn gates... He's the only guitarist in the world who can be the next slash or Jimi Hendrix.. Awesome prickling and sweep and coordination and timing20 Comments
Waking the Fallen is still to this date in my opinion one of the best albums in the world. Give it a real shot! Get the Lyrics on screen n' Listen to their old stuff with an open mind <3 unless you hate metal I see no reason why anybody would not hear the beauty in their art like I do
Better than afterlife's solo
Amazing solo should be number one but all the newbies don't listen to their older stuff and recognize this solo and album outshines them all - stone5206
Wow afterlife is dominating this one... But I guess they haven't heard the second heartbeat solo, truly fantastic with its sweep pick shredding speed, just beautiful to listen to. Syn is fantastic.14 Comments
can't pic one solo guys.. cz Syn giving everything he can to every solos.. he is the best youngest guitarist ever... definitely he will be the greatest guitarist ever... he got the talent...!
talking about Seize the day solo, one of the best touching songs I've ever heard and the solo is touching too... really nice... - skt
soulfull and really nice. shows that he has ability to shred and create chill solos as well. It was hard between this, Afterlife and Beast and the Harlot though
Simply awesome can't put it any other way.
The guitar solo in Seize the day is ridiculous, Also how the hell did Hail to the king not make this list?7 Comments
This song is amazing, over 8 minutes long, great intro, great mid-song solo, great acoustic outro solo, and great subject. This song honestly sound like a seize the day and bat country combined because of great riffs and its almost somewhat of a power ballad. - danimey
There's no doubt that any of these solos could be the best but I think MIA is the best because of it's perfect mixture of notes and the fact that you can listen to the solo over and over again never getting tired of it and MIA is an amazing song in general. That's why I think it's the best
Amazing. Every Avenged Sevenfold Song is amazing but the solo in this inspires me to keep writing. Especially the acoustic solo at the end!
M.I. A is such a badass song, more people should definitely know about this song... From beginning to end one of the best songs they ever wrote.13 Comments
One of the best solo's by syn gates I have ever herd! He is one of the best lead guitarist ever I haven't heard a guitarist who is better or hotter then SYN GATES!
Don't Know why Second Hearbeat's solo is ahead of this. The raw wailing and the incredible part where everything else silences...
I can die happy knowing this solo was written, and this song.
A well constructed solo that doesn't rely on just speed. Fits the song very well and incorporates some nice bends and vibratos, the small sections of sweep picking and fast chromatic runs separated by the slaytanic and creepy licks makes this solo by far their most unique.
Great song with a great solo, one of the best A7X songs by far!4 Comments
What? This is actually avenged sevenfold's best solo, it is the hardest to play, the one with most different techniques.
Guys, if you haven't heard about this solo please go hear it and be amazed by its hugeness and amazingness.
The overall of this song is amazing to be honest, and yes, the solo deserves top 10.
The sweep picking sounds so clean I'm surprised it's not number 1
All solos on this list deserve to be here, but wicked end has a tune that matches the end, and mostly people hum the guitar riffs rather than sing the vocals, great guitaring even without the solo3 Comments
This solo blew my mind when I heard it. I didn't think it was humanly possible. Just the build up gives it so much anticipation. This solo definitely stands out among any of Synyster's work. In my opinion #1!
It's very fast and although not the longest it's definitely very awesome, Wicked End's solo should be first!
Blew me away. Became my favourite after hearing it for the first time after I had listened to all their previous stuff
This song's solo is so good, why isn't it first, it's definitely the best solo I have ever heard2 Comments
lovely and strong... that's how you define it! ;) - lookmyeyes
It's a perfect solo, really awesome.
This solo is really really fast
very emotional goes perfect with the brilliant song vote if you have heard it listen to it really should
this should be no. 2 really good solos arnt about the fastest
A whole new sound behind Syn's guitar, and it's just beautiful. The guitar literally cries as it's being played, and the emotion behind this solo is not found in any other A7x song.
No words. Just listen.
Yes! - Alpha101
WTF! blinded in Chains has no solo...
My favourite are 2nd Heartbeat and afterlife but I can't see this one in 10th place... I'ts better than gunslinger and lost
Not Syn's most popular solo for the simple fact that it's off their least popular album, but it's his greatest.
THIS DESERVES number 1 to be honest. Or at least top 10. Best solo ever, they should re-do this song.
You people need to listen to this! It is so good, as is the whole album! This must be heard!3 Comments
What the heck! have you listened to all of the A7x's solos? this song must be number 2 or higher. The solo is more amazing than bat country is.. - blackredcapolista
Amazing solo, last minute of the song is pure amazingness.
Yeah that solo is best, amazing, cool solo ever, and for last minutes is funny
This should be close to one, this solo makes you look back on old memories3 Comments
Hard to choose but this one really stands out as not only musical (not just a jumble of notes cluttered together) and you can hum it out. Upbeat and dare I say "fun"
y the hell ain't this up there it should be 4 or 5
This song shows the talents of Avenged Sevenfold throughout! The beat that the Rev gives is impecable, and gives me chills every time I hear him. The riffs on this are beautifully played and should be greatly credited!
I don't know HWF this isn't at-least top 51 Comment
Dual acoustic solo with syn's dad. Pretty damn awesome. On of those solos I aspire to learn one day.
That acoustic is the reason I live
' Awesome. That's all I need to say.
The acoustic man.. acoustic1 Comment
Save me is by far their best solo, but I just heard this for the first time and boy was I impressed, almost as good as save me
wtf? y is this # 10 it should be 2 or 3 honestly to end the rapture don't even got a solo bat country... uhh no... and wheres beast and the harlot wtf? - Mandingo
this song is awesome. And you can take almost every song from the new album for this list
One of the best, absolutely epic2 Comments
The song starts off good with some epic guitar but then the solo makes it be not just a good song but an amazing song. The first part of Syn's solo is fast and cool and then comes the harmonized solo with Zacky. Amazing.
The solo is the main reason I like this song - danimey
The entire song has a very different sound from most of a7x’s music And at first I didn’t like the song but it has grown on me and the solo goes perfectly with the song and is downright impressive
This solo is so fast and it goes along so perfectly with this song. It should AT LEAST be a top 102 Comments
I enjoy how the tension is built up by the leading in break after the chorus. Surrounded by the arpeggios and some playful bends are followed by the fast rolling on high E, then the tapping part is phenomenal. Absolute favorite.
Sometimes isn't always how fast you can play, but how well you can match great harmonies to the underlying tone of the song. Nothing takes you out of the mood of a song when the solo completely doesn't match the tone and pace of the song. "Coming Home" has the perfect solo to match the song, it isn't too short, it isn't too long, and it harmonizes with the rest of the song. It has fast moments, slower moments, and perfect harmonization between Zacky and Synyster. In my opinion, this should've been the closing track to "Hail to the King." Best Avenged Sevenfold solo, ever.
One of their best solos ever, the different paces make it such a great solo! Must listen to it on maximum volume... Or best, LIVE IN DECEMBER
This, truly should be number 1. The solo switches from syn to zacky, and then they both harmonize5 Comments
It's so emotional
Syn really shows his emotion in the solo's in this sing
Come on! 22nd! This song is pure emotion and that is clearly visable in their video. You can actually see the emotion of every band member, especially Syn when he plays that solo - Danielsun182
That solo make's me cry...
Hard to say whats the best Syn solo, but this one is great
I thought Afterlife was great, Until I heard this. Please People, vote for this song, it's such a meaningful solo.
So much soul and heart put into this solo. I salute Syn Gates for writing this masterpiece3 Comments
May not be the best, but there's so much emotion put into it, it should definitely be put on this list. Also, I think someone should put Natural Born Killer on here as well! There's some great solo's on the new album! - xSpartanXx
These SOLOS are absolutely amazing! The first solo is the most badass solo ever, and the second solo is more emotional and content. This song is amazing and this solo is a large part of why it's so great. This and buried alive should be numbers 1 and 2.
Seriously this one is a masterpiece, why the hell it's on 21?
Save me is a 10 min display of what their style is. It's solos are very well put together and surpass most of their other songs let alone the songs from other bands... This should be number 1!
THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1 it's definitely the best exsisting solo in the world it's so incredible, how the song is always increasing after the second chorus. And then this solo follows it's just perfect the change between the sweep pickings and the very fast licks just awesome. - GuitarOne
WHY IS THIS NUMBER 20 LET'S MAKE THIS NUMBER 1 SHSHHHSSHSSH.
The solo is just EPIC and it kinda diverse through the song. It's awesome, and not only the guitar, the song's just about all of their skills + emotion put in an 11 minute track. God put this in number 1 please.
Not only does this song have one of the top 5 best guitar solos for Avenged Sevenfold, but the song also has lyrics that can dig deep inside you. Definitely should be in the top 5 - WolfByShadow
The solo in this song is absolutely insane, I wake up head banging to it every morning. The twin guitars totally jamming in triplets, and then the incredible speed picking and shredding... Wow! Please give it a listen! - Minkzipper
The solo is so amazing that I play it over and over just to listen to the solo it's amazing song as a whole though
Really guys. This should at least be in the top 3. - foREVer-Z2 Comments
The best intro ever to a song. really scary solo
The most exciting Avenged Sevenfold solo. It is an extremely difficult solo, and it makes it look that is within your soul
Amazing! I absolutely love the solo / Syn and Zacky playing together
It is a cool song
The whole song is beautiful and the solo just add to it. This solo just other, no other way to put it.
This song is my favorite song among this band they mix many kind of instrument like houzien, classic, rock so that I do like this song
Best one by far of all these in my opinion
This is the best a7x solo along with seize the day, its not about speed its about the heart behind the solo
Noobs listen to it before underrating this heavenly solo
What the **** this one is pure skill and music knowledge I can play afterlife @ 8 months of playing but at 1year I can't play this
The first part with one handed tapping is flawless, and then Syn moves into the harmonic (or melodic, I'm not sure which, as I'm only an amateur guitarist) scale with its eerie yet major key Egyptian sound! It's all around wonderful!
When I heard this solo I was so happy. I was worried they were gonna screw up the entire album but when I heard it, I was relieved that I was wrong. This deserves top 10 in this list - Danielsun182
Come on this solo is really good! Should be on top 10
29? I thought for sure this would be number 1! I'm shocked2 Comments
An amazing solo both of them are just amazing and have super creative guitar playing by Syn.
I've listened to the guitar solo on this tune and it seems to bwethe best one I've heard.
HOW THIS ISN'T HIGHER? So underrated.
Why so low
best solo EVER
C'mon guys syns love this solo and he can play this in one hand... love every solo... Syn & Zacky rox... - skt
Tons of emotion is in this solo it should be at least within the #10
This solo is awesome! The sound is amazing and I think it is one of the best solo on the last album! - Olive855
the bridge in the begining is insane this should be up there -
Simply the best and most beautiful solo by A7X.
In my opinion still their best song, plenty of emotion pouring out of it, the only thing that lets down the song is it's drumming. The solos are awesome.
Absolutely insane song. Such a powerful solo that is easy to learn (thank God) yet it has the same feeling of accomplishment as learning the afterlife solo
This solo is touching way beyond any other solo
Come on guys if you have ever heard this song you should see the amazing level of skill of this solo. The harmonies are just beautiful and the structure of it is prrfect. The drums have the perfect timing and the rhythm guitar goes along so well. I can't pick my favorite solo because it would be like picking your favorite child bit this solo truly deserves at least top 5.
This solo is the most fun to listen to and to play! Afterlife is amazing but this solo has CLASS.
Best solo ever
This is a really good song and solo but in my opinion "nightmare" is the greatest song and solos ever. The beginning is the best intro to a song EVER
This is an amazing solo although short. You guys should really listen to it.
So Aggressive, So good
Syn literally got voted as one of the fastest guitarists because of this song, you know... And not only it's fast, it requires great skills to play this too.
All of their songs are amazing of course and have amazing guitar solos, but this guitar solo is obviously amazing, sorry, I suck at spelling, but you all understand, its gotta be higher than a 6, you all get me don't ya
Zombies theme song turn guitar solo? It has my vote. The song I think also has another great instrumental if you prefer that one - AutoFrost
This song is awesome, but I think this is more a riff than a solo... - Olive855
This is definitely one of the best songs by A7X... Surprised its not already on the list as I'm writing this. Great vocals, great lyrics, great build up, great riffs, great solo... Need I say more?
This the best band's song!
I knew Avenged through this one and am so glad I did
and it's still my number one!
welcome to the family
love you Avenges yeah!
NO NO NO O NON YOU don't UNDERSTAND THIS IS LITERALLY MY FAVE SOLO BY SYN AND HE SAID IT'S HIS FAVE TOO
