Top Dream Theater Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Octavarium Octavarium

This divine solo, ending this masterpiece... After 20 mins of the true Dream Theater, John Petrucci pulls this wonderful guitar solo that, for me, is better than "The Best of Times". Such a feeling. This gives me chills. It really does.

This is easily their best song and solo

Oh come on the ending had a amazing solo but I do aggree under a glass moon is the best solo

22 A Rite of Passage
23 Surrounded Surrounded

The outro solo that goes from 12:50 to end... in my opinion the best solo of DT!

The guitar solo at the end. How could you guys miss this out? Yes it's short but it oozes with emotion, amplified more with the string orchestra for the background, feels like listening to "Made in Heaven" music.
