Best Jimmy Page Solos

As the lead guitarist of one of the greatest rock bands ever, Jimmy Page did some great solos! What of them are the best?

The Top Ten

1 Stairway to Heaven

Is hard to pick just one... Page is the best! - juanjaramillom

Achilles Last Stand have the hardest solo but the best is this one.

I don't get how Jimmy Page said he have better solos than this... may not be the hardest, but is the most wonderful and the best for sure. One of the best of all time.
(what that pic? Stairway is from LP IV not Four Sticks) - juanjaramillom

maybe the best solo ever with that feeling he gave to it! - rock2metal

My favorite player ever!

2 Since I've Been Loving You


The Song Remains the Same live intro of this song is one of the most blistering yet melodic guitar solos I've ever heard. Simply incredible

Incredibly full of emotion and impossible to replicate by other guitarists

Hypnotic solo(s)... quiet gut-renching emotion building to a searing climax, perfectly complementing Plant's vocals. Studio version had me completely riveted the first time I heard it, so inventive. Stairway is the best single solo, but the combined impact of the solos here is devastating.

3 Heartbreaker

This solo shows to the world why Jimmy Page is a Guitar God

I learned to play the Stairway to Heaven solo about a year into playing guitar. 30+ years later, and I still can't come close to pulling off Heartbreaker. I wonder if the people who voted for Stairway even play guitar.

Just because it's harder doesn't mean it's better. I love the heartbreaker solo to death but just because it's technically more complex doesn't mean it's better. - Schno_p

Hands (jimmy page’s) down.
2 mins in. It’s just him. Led Zep is hard to top because of deep talent at every position. Combine those talents for some truly dynamic sounds.
But when you’re solo is in fact SOLO, you’re just a freak.

4 Dazed and Confused

For me, it's just about tied with "Since I've been Loving You." The solo in that one is definitely more emotional, but I think I favor this one because of the live versions, how they just keep jamming away for so long. I'm really in to those lengthily improvisations. Still, I have to give credit to "Since I've been Loving You" because of its deep emotions. - Led_Rush_Floyd

This should be in 3rd place.. Stairway to heaven is 1st, then Since I've been loving you is 2nd and Dazed and Confused 3rd.. Listening to it now, every solo he plays is amazing.. Best riffs in music EVER..

5 Achilles Last Stand

Not as popular of an album, but, in my opinion, by far Page's best solo. Page really owned every guitarist ever with this one!

6 Whole Lotta Love

I was going to vote for stairway to heaven, but this is only at 6, and it's a little disappointing.

7 In My Time of Dying

Some of his best work - LizardKing99

8 White Summer / Black Mountain Side

This song is filled with sweetness!

9 Ten Years Gone

All of his solos are wonderful, this one is really beautiful

10 Good Times Bad Times

The Newcomers

? Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman)

The Contenders

11 The Ocean
12 No Quarter

This solo sound so psychadelic and right after john paul jones keyboard solo, it made it sound even better. My favorite solo of all time maybe but is definitely up there with all along the watchtower, johnny b goode, another brick on the wall, we used to know, fade to black. But no quarter probably take the cake.

Tsrts is the best solo of all time

13 Immigrant Song

The live version has a sick solo - DaBoi

I'm not sure this song belongs on this list of best Jimmy Page solos. It's a great riff but no real solo.

14 Black Dog

The ending solo is so sexy it will never fail to bring that wicked smile on your lips whenever you hum it

15 Nobody's Fault But Mine
16 The Rover

so melodic

Should be in top ten.

17 Communication Breakdown
18 Rock And Roll
19 I'm Gonna Crawl
20 Take Me for a Little While

When two legends get together you can't go wrong! And Jimmy Page totally nailed it... Awesome intro and incredible solo!

What A Awesome Song... David Coverdale On Vocal And Jimmy Page On Guitars...
This is pure awesomeness!

21 The Lemon Song

This solo is so crazy, I think it needs more recognition though

22 Tangerine

Just check the solo. - zxm

23 Hurdy Gurdy Man

Yup, that's him on lead!

24 Happenings Ten Years Time Ago
25 You Shook Me
26 How Many More Times
27 The Rain Song
28 The Wanton Song
29 In the Evening

Not even on the list?! WHAT! This solo gives me the CHILLS man. Extraordinary. I'm shocked

30 Over the Hills and Far Away
31 When the Levee Breaks
32 Down by the Seaside
33 What Is And What Should Never Be
34 Ramble On
35 Misty Mountain Hop
36 The Song Remains The Same
37 Sick Again
38 Fool In The Rain
39 For Your Life
40 D'yer Mak'er

One of the more easy solos but I really like it
