Top 10 Bands with Best Twin (Dual) Lead Guitars

Bands that use harmonized twin leads and dueling guitar solos. This is when two different lead guitarists harmonize melodies together and not when one guitarist uses double tracking. Also, there are bands with 2 or 3 guitarists but they don't harmonize their lines and shouldn't be on this list.

Pioneers of twin guitars were: Fleetwood Mac, Allman Brothers Band, Thin Lizzy, Wishbone Ash, Home, Quicksilver Messenger Service (and maybe some other less known bands).

They released their self titled EP in 1984, but didn’t gain notoriety until the release of their critically acclaimed album Operation: Mindcrime in 1988. As of now, they more.

Seriously, this wasn't added in til now?

Anyways, Queensryche took Maiden's twin lead and took it to the next level, just like Maiden did with Thin Lizzy's and Wishbone Ash's.

Of course, they had classic twin riffs, but, as I said they took it to another level, Wilton and DeGarmo would write a normal solo and play it in twin style. Of course not every song had that twin solo, they'd often have back to back solos, or just one solo per song or sometimes no solos even.

Take a listen to NM156 and you'll see what I'm talking about.
