Best Kirk Hammett Solos


The Top Ten

1 Fade to Black

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?

Fade to black is a song that blows of your mind in the last 2 minutes, one of the greatest solos of metal history

One of the best metal solos ever written...this defines what Kirk is capable of...a true master

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

Fade to black solo blows everyonr away but this ONE... It is a sin to compare it... It is the ultimate solo of Metallica

3 Master of Puppets

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.

5 Wherever I May Roam
6 The Judas Kiss

This should be number 1. Solo is absolutely brilliant.
