The Top Ten
Wanna hear the fastest guitar solos? Listen to Shawn Lane.
Damn kids need to stop playing guitar hero 3, and educate yourselves.
Definitely one of the fastest guitar solos I’ve ever heard. This is the most iconic solo from DragonForce and it overshadows solos from songs like their newer music like Fallen World, Ashes of the Dawn, and Once in a Lifetime.
Obviously the fastest. And shame for everyone who think they speeded it up in the studio...
Fastest guitar solos I've ever heard I'm in love with this song simply due to the skill required for the shredding.V 2 Comments
Start of solo is stupidly fast
Quite fast but shouldn't be on number 2. - zxm
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...
There is a point in the solo where the guitar sounds like it is about to die from being played so fast
One of my favorites to play... a quick way to impress your friends. thanks syn.
So difficult to play it‘s so fast
Faster than One, Free Bird or Taxman. - zxm
Fast and hard
Deserves a bit higher position
The fastest guitar solo ever played (or at least what seems like it) deserves a much higher position
It's faster than most of this list.
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.
Sorry not the fastest compared to the other solos on this list.
Listen to the guitar solo and go back here to vote
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
The Whole song is pretty much the fastest solo ever.
One of the most gifted musicians of the 20th century
No body in the world can replicate this solo.
2:12 in the song. Easily one of the fastest guitar solos I’ve heard
This is fast? LOL. That's 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
The last track of Metallica "...And Justice for All", this could the most intense, fastest, and hardest solo to play they Kirk played it. In case you haven't hear the solo, just listen to the last track.
This may not be the most intricate solo, but it's undoubtedly fast and some of Malakian's best work.
The whole song is very fast and the sweep picking part is tremendously epic.
