Top 10 Songs with the Best Kirk Hammett Solos
The Top Ten
Great one, together with the guitars on the back. So emotional
A classic solo. Kirk may not be the most technical guitarist, but he is the best at playing with emotion
It's beautiful and it's a long solo. Totally great. My second favorite is "One".
Easily his most emotional solo, but why isn't Jump in the Fire in here?
the solo I was referring to was the one in the middle. It emphasizes the soul of the song.
I love fade to black but this is the solo that made me take up guitar and is my personal favorite so it gets my vote.
This solo is the greatest example of what the job a lead guitarist is...Kirk leads the band through to the end
It's the most perfect solo in the history of guitar solos
Easily his best solo by far
Epic solo. This is better than One and Fade to Black I swear.
Best guitar solo in rock history in my opinion.
Kirk Hammett at his very best!
This is probably the most unexpected solo you'll ever hear from a band. Not to mention a thrash metal band. Seriously - it goes from fret masturbation to nice and slow.
My fingers hurt after this solo.
The best thing about this solo is that it is placed son well in the song. definitely my favorite
This should be number 1. Solo is absolutely brilliant.
Brilliant solo, should be nr.1
Brilliant solo. Should be nr.1
Should be nr.1 brilliant solo
Great solo, fast, aggressive but melodic at the end just to become the intro of one of the greatest bridges of metal history.
This may not be his fastest or most technical solo, because that is the solo in dyers eve. But it is his best written out solo which is why it ranks above it in my opinion.
This is that one solo. The solo I always look forward to listening. This is clearly Kirk's best work. James was at the pinnacle of his vocals in the song. Needs to be at 1.
Great solo, after some fighting and struggling with Bob Rock
While it may not be his most technical solo, it carries a lot of emotion, and therefore needs to be higher
His most emotional solo
It’s pretty sloppy though.
This is pure shred!
Yeahh! This is just brilliant.
Fade to black solo is awesome too.
I also love the solos in all the unforgivens, unforgiven 3 being the best.
How has this masterpiece been missed?
Needs to be higher.
The solo itself was pure madness! - TheDarkOne_221b
Should be #1. He uses almost every fret and goes from slow to insane
Actually the lead guitarist is dave mustain not kirk
Nope. Dave only wrote for it. Kirk played it. Get your facts right. - Userguy44
Nothing more to say.
I could indeed use this solo to summon Cthulhu
Awesome solo, tons of wah action and some whammy bar at the end.
So fast in parts and just mental sounding...fits the subject matter so well.
Why isn't it in the top ten? He mixes it up so well! It goes well with the riff..
Also needs to be higher.
When the power chords come back at the end and he can shred one last time! why isn't this in the top 10?
