Fastest Guitar Solos of All TimeTheGodfatherOfCoolStuff
The Top Ten
Fastest guitar solos I've ever heard I'm in love with this song simply due to the skill required for the shredding.
Obviously the fastest. And shame for everyone who think they speeded it up in the studio... - somekindofaguy
Just like I thought. - zxm
THERE IS NO FASTER SOLO. - blackphoenix
Quite fast but shouldn't be on number 2. - zxm
Start of solo is stupidly fast
Look at the tapping part, it's faster than everything on this page, 16th notes triplets at 216 BPM it's a insane speed, 21 notes per second, seriously...
So difficult to play it‘s so fast
Deserves a bit higher position
It is Dave Mustaine
Maybe not the most difficult solo but its definitely the fastest I've ever heard. (and also one of the most unique and memorable, usually fast solos are meh). And I listened to malmsteen, MAB, gilbert and others. Those 2 ascending runs with triplets are INSANELY fast. Especially live version he plays even faster than on album and its very clear.
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
Faster than One, Free Bird or Taxman. - zxm
This fast? LOL. This is a very weird understanding of "fast". - Metal_Treasure
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
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
Listen to the guitar solo and go back here to vote
The Whole song is pretty much the fastest solo ever.
