Top Dream Theater Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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
24 The Ministry of Lost Souls

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

25 On the Backs of Angels

This is my favorite solo OF ALL TIME! Every single note is perfect and I love the epic build up

26 The Root of All Evil

How can you say no to this one?!

27 A Nightmare To Remember

Come on guys dis 1 should be ahead col guitar I really was scared when I first heard it

28 Endless Sacrifice
29 This Dying Soul
30 The Count of Tuscany

How is this gem not higher up?! I always tear up when that last solo starts up! My favourite indeed.

31 A New Beginning
32 Illumination Theory

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.

33 Pull Me Under
34 Wither V 1 Comment
