Greatest Guitar Solos of Rock and Metal

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Under a Glass Moon - John Petrucci

Anyone who actually takes the time to listen to it will realize it's better than the other 48 entries. It's just obvious.

122 Don't Cry - Slash
123 Paradise City - Slash
124 XXX For You - Ichirou Cipher Takigawa (D'erlanger)
125 A Gunshot To The Head Of Trepidation- Corey Beaulieu/Matt Heafy

Aww come on. No one likes Trivium around here. Listen to it, its epic.

! Come on that is the best solos ever I've never seen because it's like a dream.

126 Everytime I Die - Alexi Laiho

107? Seriously?!?! Even if the solo isn't as difficult as afterlife, but the tone of this solo suits the song thoroughly! The feeling, the bends, the tremolo work is just too awesome in the entire song! Should be in the top 10 at least

127 Surfing With The Alien - Joe Satriani
128 Three Days - Dave Navarro

Stairway to heaven of the 90's... Without the overplay or recognition

Dave Navarro is the guitarist, but the band is Jane's Addiction, dumbass.

129 Third Eye - Adam Jones

I have never heard anybody play guitar like Adam does in this song...the entire song is a guitar solo with other instruments aranged around it.

130 Blue Sky - Duane Allman/Dicky Betts
131 Hour I - Matthias Jabs

Very nice solo that maybe soumds nusual. But i think it's great!

132 Purple Rain - Prince

True perfection, nonetheless incredibly underarrated solo.
You have to vote for this one if you think EMOTION comes first when raking solos.

Listen to it again, and trully vote for the solos that gives you

133 Pieces - Ken Kitamura
134 Road To Nowhere - Zakk Wylde

You really should listen to this one.. very emotional and technical solo, from the ozzy's 1991 'No more tears' album

135 Star Spangled Banner - Jimi Hendrix

Never gets any better. This solo deserves #1 on the list and almost all can agree to that, even those who voted Eruption by Eddie Van Halen. Totally Awesome.

So awesome it doesn't need a backing track - gemcloben

No, no, no
you people are all doing wrong, this solo deserves number 1,2,3,4 and maybe 5

136 Hells Bells - Angus Young
137 The Spirit Carries On - John Petrucci

John petrucci does a great job in this solo, it is magnificent, it sticks very well with the song and the feeling that leads this, one of the best of Petrucci in my opinion.

138 Know Your Enemy - Tom Morello
139 Them Bones - Jerry Cantrell

If more people listen to this solo, then it would definitely be at least top 50
