Greatest Guitar Solos of Rock and Metal
The Contenders: Page 11
This solo is one of the craziest I've ever heard although the second part is on keyboard
Took a great rocker and injected blues and jazz into it. An incredible reworking that does not take away from the original. -
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
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
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
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
Uli shows why he is an undisputed guitar god in the epic piece. - ybothermatt
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?
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.
