Fastest Guitar Solos of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Through The Fire And Flames - Herman Li and Sam Totman

Obviously the fastest. And shame for everyone who think they speeded it up in the studio... - somekindofaguy

Just like I thought. - zxm

2 One - Kirk Hammett

Quite fast but shouldn't be on number 2. - zxm

3 Raining Blood - Kerry King, Gary Holt, and Jeff Hannerman
4 The Number Of The Beast - Janick Gers, Dave Murray, and Adrian Smith
5 Killing In The Name - Tom Morello
6 Free Bird - Hughie Thomasson
7 Afterlife- Synyster Gates
8 Don't Know What I Got - Tom Keifer
9 Heroes Of Our Time - Herman Li and Sam Totman
10 Revolution Is My Name - Dimebag Darrell

The Contenders

11 Sweet Child O' Mine - Slash
12 Far Beyond the Sun - Yngwie Malmsteen

Faster than One, Free Bird or Taxman. - zxm

13 Taxman - Paul McCartney

This fast? LOL. This is a very weird understanding of "fast". - Metal_Treasure

14 Eruption - Eddie Van Halen
15 Peace Sells - Dave Mustaine
16 Stargazer - Ritchie Blackmore

It's good to see Ritchie Blackmore here because he is usually very underrated.
However, he has several solos that are faster than Stargazer. Off the top of my head:
Rainbow - A Light In the Black, Kill the King, Death Alley Driver;
Deep Purple - Child in time, Highway Star
I fact, Stargazer solo isn't fast compared to his other solos. - Metal_Treasure

17 Paranoid Android - Radiohead
18 Boshe Achi (New) - Warfaze

I know most people won't listen this solo. But if you have curiosity then you could try it. Even his band mates can't play this solo. The starting licks are very very fast. - zxm

19 No Boundaries - Michael Angelo Batio

There are (or maybe) faster solo of his than this song. But this song has very fast solo. I added this cause its his most popular song. - zxm
