The Contenders: Page 11

201 Junk Story - hide
202 Eyes Love You - hide
203 Rainbow In the Dark - Dio
204 Mask of Sanity - Alexi Laiho

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

205 Calm Envy - Uruha & Aoi
206 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. -

207 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

208 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Slash
209 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

210 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

211 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

212 Sky Overture - Uli Jon Roth

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

213 Enter Sandman - Kirk Hammett
214 I Wanna Be Your Man - Michael Grant
215 Whats My Name - Miyavi
216 White Lightning - Phil Collen
217 What Begins Ends - Cesar Rodriguez
218 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?

219 Almost Easy - Synyster Gates
220 Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - Steve Morse
