Top 10 Bands with Best Twin (Dual) Lead GuitarsMetal_Treasure 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).

Yes, zxm is right - their guitars aren't twin guitars. I guess people didn't read my list description /explanation. - Metal_Treasure
They shouldn't be on the list. It says "twin lead guitar", A7X consists of lead and rhythm guitarists. Not dual lead guitarists. - zxm
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.
