Greatest Guitar Solos of Rock and Metal

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Mask of Sanity - Alexi Laiho

This solo is one of the craziest I've ever heard although the second part is on keyboard

202 Calm Envy - Uruha & Aoi
203 Voodoo Child - Stevie Ray Vaughan

Took a great rocker and injected blues and jazz into it. An incredible reworking that does not take away from the original. -

204 Hjärteblod - Pär Hulkoff (Raubtier)

Quite an unknown band, but if you listen to this song you are going to get a real boner.. intro solo is so freaking amazing - freezerman75

205 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Slash
206 Jewel - Jason Becker and Marty Friedman

This is the most emotional melodical solo, its just awesome, I don't see why ''Raining Blood'' is here, its just a total disaster m nothing emotional on it - Wahmmett

207 The Musical Box - Steve Hackett (Genesis)

Another very emotional solo that is is cohesive, wide ranging melodic, operatic and soulful - at the time of its recording there was almost nothing like this.

Powerful, melodic, furious, magic, timeless and ahead of its time (Van Halen copied Steve Hackett, says it all) - AlphaX

208 Zero - Billy Corgan

Listen to the last solo on this song... It is incredible. Whenever I listen to it, I think "woah, I wanna be like Billy Corgan when I grow up. " - ananikangel

209 Sky Overture - Uli Jon Roth

Uli shows why he is an undisputed guitar god in the epic piece. - ybothermatt

210 I Wanna Be Your Man - Michael Grant
211 Whats My Name - Miyavi
212 White Lightning - Phil Collen
213 What Begins Ends - Cesar Rodriguez
214 Alone - Matt Tuck

Idiots duffers talking of solos and no Bullet For my Valentine and Lamb Of God... Nothing to say.. Just listen

This is no position a solo like alone should be at! Both matt and padge are awesome and underrated guitarists.. If speed is not the only parameter that decides quality of a solo then where the hell are solos of 'walk with me hell' and 'in your face (cob)' in the list?

215 Almost Easy - Synyster Gates
216 Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - Steve Morse
217 Crucify the Dead - Slash
218 Promise - Slash
219 Double Guitar Solo - Michael Angelo Batio
220 Goodbye to Romance - Randy Rhoads

It's Rhoads' best solo on Blizzard of Ozz hands down, better than Crazy Train. Just listen to it once and you'll be convinced. The passion from the solo is unlike anything I've ever heard before.
