What are his best guitar solos?

The Top Ten

1 Floods Floods

This is indescribable, so dense feelings, but I rather prefer Hard lines And Sunken Cheeks And this second, I only wanted this place to telling about Hard lines 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.

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. - zxm

Its just about technicalities it's about soul and floods has it and then some best solo in my opinion

2 The Sleep The Sleep

This is just such a good solo, you think it’s over with the short clean breakdown, and then the screeches come back in, just so much emotion and technique and passion

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

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

Agreed darrels screeching guitars kicks ass

3 Cemetery Gates

Exelent song

Beautiful guitar Solo with some really really tasteful shredding

It was awesome! - EliHbk

Helo - Spiritualsavedboy

4 Domination

You can't get a better soon than this

This solo isn’t human. - Userguy44

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

Easily number 1 with floods

5 We'll Meet Again

Number 1 no dispute

This solo must be number 2

6 10's

My favourite DIMEBAG solo ever

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... - Gasmaskboi19371945

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 🤘🏻🎸

7 Revolution Is My Name
8 Mouth for War
9 Walk

Pure musical genius

10 Psycho Holiday

This list is missing the greatest solos! Psycho Holiday and Rejection are by far the top 2 solos where Dimebag shows his unique an unmatched skills.

Electrifying and groovy. Dimebag's mastery shows here

The Contenders

11 Cowboys from Hell

Perhaps the best solo he's ever made

This should be way higher!

12 This Love
13 Message in Blood
14 A New Level

Short but intense :D

15 Drag the Waters
16 The Great Southern Trendkill

Why isn't this higher. It's a kickass solo with all the bends and squels to make your thighs wet.

17 Avoid the Light

This solo so exite

18 Throes of Rejection

VERY underrated solo, one of Dime's hardest solos to pull and has very cool bends and legato runs.

Very difficult solo and really cool.

19 5 Minutes Alone
20 I'm Broken
21 D*G*T*T*M
22 Inside Out

Dimebag Played Lead On This Song - christangrant

23 All Over Tonight

From their second album, Projects in the Jungle, the first track. He kills it here.

24 In Over My Head

Very good solo

25 Hard Lines And Sunken Cheeks

This is so beautiful And sentimental
