This is a wonderful attempt of Jimmy's to play a blues song and he really pulled it off. Due to the fact that this song is mostly based on improvisation, it makes a great live performance.
What? This is the one of the most emotional solos I've ever heard. Deserves a better position!
Jimmy Page's Solo in this song is better than in Stairway to Heaven. - malamJONES
This is one of my favorite songs yet alone one of my favorite solos of all time, deserves to be higher
I can't believe this solo isn't even on the list yet. Rhoads was a genius and this was his masterpiece
A track where Hendrix shows his full guitar potential and it's not in the top 10. - RandomGuy456
Should be #1! Malcolm and Angus Young=Best guitar duo EVER!
Angus young back in black he wasn't crazy or rushing the solo
He just did it in perfect timing with fast fingers
Bad ass solo in the middle & mind blowing solo at the end of the song
"THAT IS ART"
BACK IN BLACK:
FROM THE BEST BAND - shatti
One of the most underrated solos of all time. At least give it a try. - zxm
Better than eruption (eruption 2nd) - gemcloben
Should be higher. - zxm
Great solo. One of the finest guitarist but also one of the most underrated.
I agree Gary Moore had some very metal sounding pieces and an overall predisposition to metal. To me 'Out in the fields' is a great power metal song. Everything speaks metal: pretty fast and non-bluesy song, the riff is a stand-alone melody, the solo is a metal solo, lyrical theme is dark, and so on. One of the greatest songs I've ever heard. No wonder at least 10 metal bands did covers.
Hard to believe Moore was not already on the list. Picked this song as it features one of his classic solo's. Metal Heads should check out his G Force album which has Van Halenesque solos
