Top 10 Songs with the Best Eddie Van Halen Guitar Solos
The Top Ten
Eddie rewrote guitar playing in 1 minute and 42 seconds as rock journalists have opined. I agree! The only one that is comparable is Hendrix Star Spangled Banner!. CASE CLOSED!.
One of the best solos ever... It Opens The Door to a complete new world of hard rock music and guitar, all thanks to Eddie, best guitarist ever behind Jimi.
with no doubt, his best solo ever!
from the intro to the outro, this tapping masterpiece is a proof that he is one of the best guitarist in rock history! - rock2metal
Although it is 1:42 seconds, it is truly eddie van halen's greatest solo ever!
This is certainly not the best Van Halen solo ever... but its undeniably an amazing treat to the ears! Just because this song appears in a pop album, rockers tend to dismiss it... In my opinion, from purely musical point of view, this Van Halen- Michael Jackson collaboration is nothing less than fabulous! One of the best pop-rock songs ever composed... a timeless classic! Van Halen's solo adds the electrifying feel to the song, and Jackson's sheer genius sparkles all along... Long Live Eddie... kudos to Michael Jackson!
Beautiful shredding solo, that fits in with an artist like Michael Jackson. Two of the most talented musical artists in their own right!
Best thing about the song - Ajkloth
Maybe not the best but maybe the only person to cram 29 notes in a measure evenly... hehehe

Take away David lee Roth on Vocals and Eddie sucks!
Shredding all the way through, utilizes all of his famous techniques.
It took a lot of skill to make a solo that good
The solo was completely crazy
Best Solo Using A Acoustic Guitar
It the bess..
From the opening solo in which Eddie was emulating the popular 70s funk bass slapping technique, to the extreme string bending of the main solo, Eddie is demonstrating that he is not limited to his trademark finger tapping solos, and that he can do things with a guitar never before imagined by mere mortals. Amazing!
Eddie Van Halen's solo on Mean Street is very unique...I personally love it. - Element119
No Doubt one of the wildest Eddie solos I've heard besides Eruption - OzzyVanHalen
Dat Intro Do! - SharkDestroyer
Extremely difficult to play and a testament to eddies amazing talent
Love the reverb and the vibrato. I just sounds, and is, Amazing!
Not the best solo, but it goes amazing with the song
Awesome song and solo! - Alpha101
What not van halen - Gh_player
It's definitely not the hardest solo Eddie Van Halen has done (Eruption comes to mind). But it really flows, and doesn't get the credit it deserves.
