Best Kirk Hammett Solosrocker1796
The Top Ten
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?V 5 Comments
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
Best solo of kirk hammettV 3 Comments
Killer riff by Hetfield for Hammett to build off of, and then the full step up modulation increases the intensity before entering what I call the “electrocution” part of the solo. Masterful, beautiful, timeless.
Easily his best solo by far
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 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.
This should be number 1. Solo is absolutely brilliant.
Brilliant solo, should be nr.1

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
Also needs to be higher. - Userguy44
When the power chords come back at the end and he can shred one last time! why isn't this in the top 10?
Why isn't it in the top ten? He mixes it up so well! It goes well with the riff..UListen to Sample
