What are his best guitar solos?

The Top Ten

1 Floods

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


The end, oh God! - EliHbk

2 The Sleep

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

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

Agreed darrels screeching guitars kicks ass

3 Cemetery Gates

Beautiful guitar Solo with some really really tasteful shredding

It was awesome! - EliHbk

Helo - Spiritualsavedboy

4 Domination

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

This solo must be number 2

6 Revolution Is My Name
7 10's

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

8 Walk
9 Mouth for War
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 This Love
12 Cowboys from Hell

This should be way higher!

13 Message in Blood
14 Drag the Waters
15 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.

16 Avoid the Light

This solo so exite

17 A New Level
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 D*G*T*T*M
21 Inside Out - Anthrax

Dimebag Played Lead On This Song - christangrant

22 All Over Tonight

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