Best Beatles Guitar Solos


The Top Ten

1 The End

Paul started it off, followed by George, followed by John to make the perfect solo ever!

2 While My Guitar Gently Weeps
3 Let it Be
4 Something

Emotive, melodious, complicated, yet at the same time laid back and almost like a conversation. Perfect. - lavillaof2112

5 Taxman
6 Good Morning Good Morning
7 Helter Skelter
8 Nowhere Man

1 - The solo itself is an amazing melody, and is by far the most outstanding part of the song

2 - The fact that two guitars were played in harmony brought something new and innovative to rock/pop music, and still sounds awesome.

3 - The solo is merely 15 seconds long, but creates a memorable melody and brings this full-sounding vibe to the song.

4 - The guitar tone is phenominal, it is echoey and reminiscent of guitar tones used in the ‘Help! ’ album, but has an acoustic-sounding flare with extra bass, it almost sounds like a double bass, but obviously much farther up in pitch. It sounds ragged and choir-like and is perfect for the song.

9 Tommorow Never Knows

Fun Fact: This solo was actually the solo from the song "Taxman, " off of the same album "Revolver, " in reverse. -

10 I Want You (She's So Heavy)

Love this song. - nicholasf
