What are his best guitar solos?
The Top Ten
1 Floods Floods Cover Art

It doesn't even deserve to be in top 5. Dime has better solos than this. This solo is mediocre. Its not my opinion, its actually very bad. Weird licks. Four tapping notes, no timing for proper bending, weird vibratos. The outro was great. But it wasn't any solo.

Sounds like zxm had a problem pulling this one off. Keep chugging buddy, you'll get it. Unorthodox style is what makes Dimebag a legend.


The end, oh God!

2 The Sleep The Sleep Cover Art

It combines elements and techniques of many different scopes, all of which Dimebag dominated. Insanely good, perfect for the song's chord progression. Chilling. R.I.P, Dimebag, thank you for your legacy.

I prefer it over Floods, don't ask me why, just I feel it so more

This is my favorite all-time solo, not just Dimebag.

Agreed darrels screeching guitars kicks ass

3 Domination Domination Cover Art

A pure masterpiece. Hell his fingers were practically on fire after that blistering solo, one of my favorite Dimebag solos

You can't get a better soon than this

Easily number 1 with floods

This solo isn’t human.

4 Cemetery Gates

Beautiful guitar Solo with some really really tasteful shredding

It was awesome!

Exelent song

5 We'll Meet Again

This solo must be number 2

Number 1 no dispute

6 10's 10's Cover Art

One of my favourite solos. Other notable mentions: Mouth For War, The Sleep (which is already 2nd place - I don't need to vote for that), Domination...

My favourite DIMEBAG solo ever

The first Pantera song I listened to, this has sparked my love of Pantera and alway will be a great song, we love you dime, and to choose between this, domination, cemetery gates, and floods, this one is the song I have to go with 🤘🏻🎸
