Greatest Guitar Solosrockman
The Top Ten
In one of the most psychedelic, calming rock songs ever composed, David Gilmour plays what is almost certainly the most otherworldly guitar solo ever created. Each notes seems to find its way into your head, invading your thoughts and leaving a deep, complex mental mark. This is reason why Pink Floyd is really the greatest space rock band that ever existed.
Its not psychedelic. after of meddle they stop making that kind of music
Pink Floyd, I feel, is the most intelligent music ever crated in our time. The poetry, the composition. There desire to truly help us understand what is important in life... Nobody can bent a note like Mr Gilmore, his well never runs dry playing guitar fast may have its respectabilities, I agree, but to play slower with a high degree of creativeness is what I find to be very respectful David is the man and roger is the other man too!
It's a long shot saying, someone in the future might top this solo. Unlike most solos, this one has a story to it. The first solo is a bright and happy one, which contrasts the second one. The song's transitions from dark and gritty to bright and happy truly stands out.
The dark melody goes perfectly with the bright undertone.
It seems almost impossible to create a greater tone than Gilmour, let alone a do an entire solo. I've always been a fan of Gilmour's tone in songs such as, "Hey you", "Time", "Another brick in the wall - part 2".etc,...
The careful selection of notes and the right time for it is ineffable. With Rogers' lyrics and songwriting along with Gilmour's songwriting and lead, makes this song a true gem, ahead of its time. And the solo, an out-of-place experience.
Considering the fact that this was made almost 50 years ago, and it still is being talked about is a remarkable feat only few bands achieve.
Pink Floyd's music breaks the ...more
David m-fing Gilmour. Very glad to see this on place one, makes me happy for some odd reason. I am aware that there are the Vais and Satrianis out there and I enjoy their music too but no one comes near Mr Gilmour and his incredible talent to express emotions through his music. Guitar GOAT!V 217 Comments
This is without even a shadow of doubt the greatest solo ever played, in my opinion. Everything about it is incredible; the arrangement is melodic and beautiful, the tone is impeccable, and the lead up to and the fazing out (if it can even be called as such) of this solo are both epic beyond compare. This solo is the main reason why Jimmy Page is one of the most legendary guitarists and Led Zeppelin one of the most legendary bands in all of rock history. Oh, did I mention that Pagey improvised it? Not much else needs to be said.
Eruption, is difficult not great, Eddie didn't put any emotion into it, Stairway to Heaven is proof that fast paced playing doesn't make a solo great (although it can, Jump in the Fire)it is emotional intensity.
When one hears the studio version of this solo, from the moment that bend just comes in with a bang but giving that anticipation for the rest of the solo, right until Plant ends it with the unbelievable extrose... One just thinks "oh man, if only I could hear this for the first time again...", well, Jimmy is just too good to produce just one great solo, and this invention of his is just too much to be contained in one minute: for that, Jimmy has improvised and IMPROVED the solo to a billion times of the heavenly feel it already has, in the live versions of this song: especially the madison square garden live in 1973... So yes, you get to listen to it for the first time over and over again!
This is the best guitar solo because so much happening in short time.V 88 Comments
A Totally wicked amazing guitar solo ever. One of the best guitar riffs ever written So powerful Amazing and fast really shows Eddies true talent as tapping was one of the techniques he is best known for
This solo may not be the best solo ever, there are many very underrated guitarists out there, sure Eddie is pretty overrated in the guitarist world... But I still believe his is one of the best guitar players to ever pick up a guitar. Stairway to heaven is a beautifully crafted song, but is highly overrated. It is fairly simple, and if you sit in any guitar shop you will hear someone playing it... Not eruption which takes way more skill.
Eddie is absolutely the best guitar player in my generation if not ever. He's proven this many times over. He is also a total musical freak! I am sure he holds more patents that any other guitar player. But it still comes down to which band and musical style you prefer. Jimmy Page playing " Stairway to Heaven " is beautiful, but not the best solo ever.
Eddie makes his guitar do things that no one else can do. The song is short, but it's a giant and thrashing and wonderful guitar solo. Go Eddie! - galaxyfoxV 39 Comments
Greatest solo ever. Must be at least at 3rd place. Sweet solo. Among the best solos that I had ever listened. Classic solo by slash. This song takes me to heaven...!
When I heard this solo, I was just blown away. Now I have heard many more solos and many more great guitarists but this one remains my favourite for years and slash my favourite along with jimmy page, dimebag darrel and dave mustaine.
My favorite guitar solo of all time. I bet anyone who plays a guitar want to solo this song. not the toughest but great one. wanna play this everyday.
All the guitar riffs are also sweet. never mis it
Sure, greatest solo of all time... for people that only knows this solo!V 60 Comments
it's a great song and finishes with a great long solo! - rock2metal
The greatest solo of all time!
JUST BEST SOLO EVER
A really emotional solo. It is the oerfect guitar solo.V 36 Comments
Sorry, Collins/Rossington, but your ranking of the Free Bird solo, as being the best even, is hands-down proof that you don't understand anything about music other than your own gut feelings, which is to say that you don't understand anything about music. I enjoy Free Bird also but the solo is very redundant. For somebody with musical training who knows how to truly pay attention to what's being played, the actual solo-lines in the Free-Bird ending get boring very quickly, which is why I prefer to not hear Free Bird any more than about once per year, because, that way, I can enjoy it without being bothered too much by the mindless-repetition. Compare, for one of many possible contrasting examples, Clapton's solo in Sunshine of Your Love. I'm not saying that repetition is always a bad thing but there are good ways of doing repetition and bad ways. If you want an example of a good way, listen to Stephen Stills' solo in the extended-jam of the 4-Way-Street version of Carry On. If you ...more
Worst list ever! Free bird is the best solo ever! Heres the real one!
1. Free bird-Lynyrd Skynyrd
2. Master of puppets-Metallica
4. Sweet child o mine-Guns N' Roses
5. Cliffs of Dover-Eric Johnson
6. The day that never comes-Metallica
7. Hotel California-Eagles
8. Whole lotta love-Led Zeppelin
9. Stairway to heaven-Led Zeppelin
10. God is dead? -Black Sabbath
You can't put three Metallica solos in the top ten, it's just impossible, and there are way better solos by Black Sabbath than the one in God Is Dead? - Rocker00
This solo is amazing! You can find a whole lotta different sounds and techniques in this single epic 5 minute solo - fidelcanojr
Free bird and hallowed be thy name will forever be the greatest solos for meV 29 Comments
One of the last great slow-burning solos in my opinion, the first guitar solo, and to a lesser but still large extent the second solo, in the Guns N' Roses masterpiece November Rain is absolutely beautiful. Passion and energy seem to flow out of the strings with each extended, stabbing note, and the wailing nature of those notes really help to convey the sad emotions presented in the lyrics and Axl Rose's beautiful vocal performance.
Best three solos I ever heard. I become spellbound while listening this song. Those three solos are SOLOS OF THE MILLENIUM. Can't be matched by any other though comfortably numb solo is quite great but not as november rain
Why is this not even in the top ten? This is the best friggin solo ever! Bon jovi doesnt even get close to the awesomeness of the solo in this! - Barlek
It's the greatest guitar solos of all time it should be in top 1V 40 Comments
What a way to top of our list then with Bohemian rhapsody by Queen. The guitar solo for this songs is just out of this world and The way Brian Plays it Is just Spine tingling. He nails it with so much motion that you can feel the motion of the song and how awesome it was put together. Brian is well known for having awesome guitar solos (crazy little thing called love (hammer to fall (These are the days of our lives etc Queen rules and so does Brian
Brian May deserves to be higher than this. I love this solo, perfect solo for the best song of all times. I mean, it's playing over and over in my head right now.
An excellent guitar solo for and excellent song!
Easily one of the greatest solos of all time - right above pantera's domination, which should be higherV 19 Comments
Hands down, the greatest solo ever! It has melody, it has speed, it has talent, and it has classical tunes! Definitely guitar playing at its peak. People don't realise the power of this, listen to a slower version of the solo and you will realise how every note is astonishing.
Whats up with this list? Definitely to best guitar solo in music history by phenomenal Randy Rhoads only at 55th place?
The second solo in this song is the greatest ever, my top 3 would be this hotel California and tunnel of love - wolphert
Randy or Zakk, best solo all timeV 21 Comments
This is the worst list I've ever seen... It actually sickens me that people are simply voting for their favourite song instead of the solos, you have solos like FTB, Comfortably Numb and Freebird outside of the top 5. This is such an intricate solo and quite emotional for metal. The only reason I would buy a Bon Jovi album was if I ran out of toilet paper
This is Kirk Hammett's best solo. Unlike all of his other shred solos like master of puppets (the first, more tasteful solo is James's) and One, which get quite repetitive, it seems like Kirk actually put a lot of time and effort into this one. It still manages to add shredding elements while incorporating aspects of solos like comfortably numb. Its easily his magnum opus and deserves to be higher on this list.
44th place. 44th firetrucking place. Way to go people, you just brought my confidence in you down. And Master of Puppets is in 9th. I love that song, but the solo is just about playing as many notes as possible, then using the whammy as though your life depended on it.
There's no way this should be outside the top 10. - truckturnerV 17 Comments
Come on!? How is this not at least in the top 3? Anyone who plays guitar knows that this song is awesome and hard to recreate. Hendrix was one of the most original guitarists of all time. Seriously?
Amazing phrasing, but I think the solos in Machine Gun are more nuanced and of course without overdubs, either way Jimi's work should rate #1, no one has ever combined soul, artistry, and technical wizardry to the same level since.
It sounds like there are ten guitars in that solos. But no! It's just one guitar in the Rock Nirvana. The entire song is a guitar solo. And it's awesome.
Man. I just can't describe it with words. You HAVE TO listen to it. Do it. You will be convinced.

Technical guitar master Ritchie Blackmore is most well known for his incredibly recognizable riff in Smoke on the Water, but his solos in Highway Star, particularly the second one, are perhaps just as strong achievements. The second solo seems a bit like the musical version of being shot out of a cannon at ultra-relativistic speeds. The arrangement has a classical touch to it, resulting in what probably would happen if Mozart got extremely drunk and then decided to pick up an electric guitar and wail away.
Actually the first solo is a keyboard solo. I used to think too that it was a guitar solo because of the distortion used. - RalphSaad
Every 'Top 10 Solos' List is lame without this solo in the Top 3!
METALHEADS, where are you? Without this piece - no speed metal and even thrash (thrash is speed metal mixed with hardcore punk).
This solo is just breathtaking and was so ahead of its time - way later speed and thrash metal guitarists started play such fast, technical and thundering solos.
Based on Bach-like chord sequences, this solo and the song in general were the best prototypes of metal music. - Metal_Treasure
This definitely belongs in the top 10, not only for its technical perfection, but because of its sheer energy level. There are lots of fast solos out there, but few get my attention like this one.
WHAT A GREAT SOLO!V 6 Comments
Regarding creativity and originality, Joe Satriani said this about Hendrix; "I can very easily figure out what he did; but I have NO idea how he thought of it."
Total shock that Stairway to Heaven is number 1. #sarcasm
A guitar solo from another dimension, performed by an immortal guitar virtuoso born on another planet.
The acoustic guitar "counterpoint" by Dave Mason also deserves appreciation on this record.V 13 Comments
I strongly believe that Dave Gilmour is the greatest and best-rounded guitarist in all of rock. And this song is his magnum opus. 4 minutes of pure guitar nostalgia, perfect top to bottom. No solo is better crafted, structured or executed than High Hopes. Yet, people overlook it.
When it comes to guitar solo in this song, David Gilmour nailed it! This is the best solo I heard in my life...
How is this not in top 5. By far the best solos I have ever heard
Whoa, I was honestly suprised top see this so high. My favorite Glimour soloV 11 Comments
In my opinion, better than Master of Puppets. This song is just all around good. The gloomy beginning solos and the crafted lyrics. Although the guitar playing gets crazy at the end, it still feels clean and well constructed. It doesn't stray too far from the core of the song. Solos like Eruption and almost any Hendrix song have you clawing and grasping for notes but they are flying out too fast. One still has that intense element but is bottled nicely and can almost be compared to Stairway, in a song structure sense.
I may like other Metallica songs more overall, but One is the greatest piece on guitar. The guitar is not simply there to supplement the sound and hit a few catchy riffs; the guitar sets the mood so much in this song. It begins with some eerie, gloomy riffs, which are perfectly complimentary to the lyrics of a traumatized soldier. After two verses, it goes into a great solo that most people would consider enough for a song. But instead, the song is only halfway over, and it kicks into a much harder sound. The heavy riffs again control the tone of the sound, where now the lyrics are of the soldier losing his mind. It then finishes with two minutes of pure thrash and the greatest guitar solo in history.
this is probably one of kirk's best solos that he has done. It is one of the best! - willhiltonmitch
This should be higher, and at least should be in the top 5. Kirk and James have tantalizing solos, and the riff is beyond incredible. The slow speed to intense solos are probably the best thing about the song.V 13 Comments
This solo deserves to be in the top ten man, I don't get how can such a majestic composition be way down in here with this other load of garbage
In my humble opinion, this is not just the best metal solo ever composed, but THE best guitar solo I have ever heard. Only Comfortably Numb can come close to the sheer epicness, intensity, soul and complexity of this one. It has got a little bit of everything and the buildup to the solo is just perfection. It says a lot about Marty Friedman's talent that many great guitarists still fail to capture the essence of this solo while playing and the fact that nobody dares improvising much on this one cause it just won't work. This one deserves to be way higher on this sad mainstream popularity contest list.
Best solo ever period. Ticks ALL the boxes.
1. Feeling: No one can much Marty on his vibrato, bending and melody.
2. Shredding: Insane runs and amazing arpeggios.
3. Character: Builds up nicely, fully memorable and you can sing along.
4. Unmatchable: Amazing guitarists tried to replicate it live ever since in Megadeth line up. More or less, they ALL failed to catch the vibe and fluidity.
5. Epitome: NOT one of the HUGE lead guitarists ever tried to changed it even slightly.
6. Approved: By Metal GOD and FOUNDER of Thrash himself. Reportedly he shook Marty's hand after the recording speechless. 'enough said...
It takes way more technical skill and is still more beautiful than most of the solos in the top ten.V 34 Comments
This solo speaks to me... of course it's one of the best ever. So sad people often vote for crap. This solo deserves to be in the top 10 and I put it on my personal list - this will move the solo up (higher than #42) but not enough to get it to the top 10. - Metal_Treasure
I've been listening to Heavy Metal Since I Was Teenager But never tried to listen to Judas Priest ever not sure why...
A talentless guitar solos like Sweet child of mine November rain Afterlife Takes first spots and beyond the realm of death doesn't get 10?
Those solos you've mentioned are very good, but none of them is as good as this one. - ShahryRKnoT
Undoubtedly the best guitar solo which has ever been composed. I guess it is the only piece of music that makes me feel something so profound every single time I listen to it.
And I am never going to be tired of it.
Sorry A7X fans, but Gates will never write a solo 1/500 as good as Beyond the Realms of Death.V 4 Comments
Never heard a solo with that much emotion. - Clyx
The Studio-Version is good, but the Solo on Live At Budokan is the greatest solo ever played in history.
Anybody who doesn't vote this up seriously needs to listen to it - the Live at Budokan version.
Its AMAZING. It's the only solo I've ever heard that successfully combines kickass virtuoso shredding with Gilmour-level emotion.
I hope this is referring to the love at Budokan edition.V 1 Comment
hanger 18 has an awesome sol. mustaine and friedman are amazing as a team, shame friedmans gone now. one sucks. its overrated cause of guitar hero - lezakattack
Number 13? You gotta be kidding, this song has 12 solos and they're all incredibly creative and fast, this list is mostly voted on popularity, although I still love led zeppelin
Must be higher. And where's tornado of souls? - vishaljagannath
There's at least 11 or 12 solos in this song, wow. - MetarockV 4 Comments
An emotional roller coaster of a series of solos Live from the Fillmore West. The solos fit very well with the emotions and desperations of the song.
Slide guitar licks and driven southern rock takes it home
I mean, like, master comes out of the part where james shouts master! Master! Where's those dreams that I've been after! And it comes to a building that finishes with kirk's solo, simply amazing, he said that when he really got a kick out of it, he destroy one of the guitar strings, AWESOME
This solo deserve 1st position... Best solo I ever heard... All solos ok Metallica are best.. Solo of one, fade to black, creeping death... There should be a different list for metallica solos... They all are best... Put this solo at top...
1. Master of puppets
3. Fade to black
4. Whiskey in the jar
5. The unforgiven
6. Creeping death
7. The day that never comes
8. The unforgiven 3
9. The unforgiven 2
10. The Judas kiss...
This is perfect list..
And, most important, do you listen to something different than Metallica? - Rocker00
Kirk is killer. One is better. Neither deserves to be on this list. Who the hell makes these stupid lists? I can go no further with this stupidity since there has been not mention of Jimi, Stevie Ray, Les Paul, Robert Johnson (look it up you idiots), Robert Cray, Eric Clapton I could go on for hours And by the way, a special thanks to Ozzy for Tony, Randy, and Zakk. Three greats.
James' solo is betterV 15 Comments
No one else has ever had such amazing control of feedback and harmonics. Controlled chaos and raw emotion! All done with a minimum of fuss, live on stage. Also the gnarliest sound ever recorded from 8:56 - 8:58. Chills every time! #1
Emotion, intensity, original. there are other great guitar solos by Hendrix, but Machine gun for me stands out. Of course Voodoo and star spangled come a close second.
Couldn't agree with you more. #1 as far as I'm concerned. Great solos are about feel not technicals. Still gives me chills listening to ir.
This is fine but not 21. I would submit that "Let It Rain" on "Derek and the Dominos In Concert" ranks this high. And "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" has got to be higher than White Room.
Listen, I love the song, I loved Cream. My third album was History of Eric Clapton. Just being honest though.
That wah wah sounds so awesome. Also the rhythm guitar in this song could be my favorite of any song behind When the Levee Breaks
It's Clapton. Totally awesome.
Upper it should be, upper in this claptonless list of solos.V 1 Comment
He plays it so fast that you can barely hear it!!!
This should be WAY higher up. This is one of the best solos of all time. He improvised it as well.
Eruption stole from this solo look it up
An example of very early shredding. - zxmV 2 Comments
Wow, this is an incredible solo added to the song for the final version by Mr. Knopfler. There's no way it's not on the list. It should be top 5 easily. - jewunit69
Isn't something I'd typically vote for... But I'm confused. I don't get how this song is in the top twenty at least already
For those of you who said Mark Knopfler had no chops, speed, or flash, please listen do yourself a favor and give this a listen. And the best part is, HE DOES IT ALL IN CLEAN TONE.
fantasticV 17 Comments
May be missing the fast notes here, some tri note patterns, but that just means that Eddie doesn't need em. Pure funk and soul went into this piece. All it needs is just one introduction and Eddie tears the rest up. Eddie even harmonizes with himself, through effect pedals he is able to delay his guitar and soon gets an amazing sound that is just unattainable in songs where the music is going by so fast there is no time to appreciate how well the solo is being articulated. Truly the masterpiece that deserves to be in the top 10 at least.
How in the world is this not number one? I've listened to all the solos above it and Maggot Brain may not be the fastest, but it is raw emotion. This is a ten minute song with nobody singing, but it doesn't need any because Eddie Hazel makes the guitar sing. I love Stairway and all, but to say its guitar solo is better would be a lie.
I'm ashamed to be living in a world where 65 top solo posts and not one is maggot brain. This solo should be #1 with 99.9 of the votes. Livin on a prayer #1? Come on that's jokes - jewunit69
Deserves to be the firstV 10 Comments
Not many people, even on this list, can play for over 15 minutes non-stop with 13 gauge strings not to mention bends and vibrato on almost every second note
How is this so low?!
I had to vote for this one because it's too low on the list
This solo deserves a higher place here, it's one of the best blues solos I've ever heard
Love Duane Allman but you should give Clapton a lot of credit and solo should be at least top 10.
Are you kidding - Layla not in the top 20? And Eric Clapton had a part in the solo too...
All duane.. Simply the best.
Why is Clapton's magnum opus not in the top ten?
This solo is so boring. IT. IS. JUST. FAST. Anyone could play triplets as fast as they can in the box and call it a solo (see Scream by Avenged Sevenfold) It's so straightforward. There's nothing creative about it. Good solos don't need to be just fast to grab someone's attention. One of the best solos of all time is Comfortably Numb, which is slow and psychedelic. That solo's not great because of its speed. It's great because of its creativity and melody.
Kick yourselves Everyone!..
Have you ever listened AFTERLIFE?.. By Avenged Sevenfold?..
Synyster Gates is just AWESOME.. His solo is great!.. And very fast!...
Speed doesn't define a good solo, a guitar solo may not be very fast, yet be awesome, such as stairway to heaven's, if speed was actually important free bird or through the fire and flames would be on first place
Why the hell on 6th position, this solo should be on the 1st position
Short but lightning fastV 41 Comments
Greatest ever come on people have no brain these days
Where's the Dance of Eternity? That whole song is basically a guitar/bass/drum solo song.
A masterpiece - speed, accuracy, melody! One of the best ever. Deserves to be way higher - this solo is mindblowing! - Metal_Treasure
WHO DOESN'T LIKE SHREDDING.
I don't know how this isn't in the top 5 every note leaves an emotional mark and adds to the epic sound of time. One of my favorite solos, but, stairway to heaven jimmy page is in it's right spot at number 1
Realistically, Comfortably Numb should be Number 1 or 2, Time should be 8, 9 or 10, and High Hopes should be around 13, 14. David Gilmour is, in my opinion, the greatest guitarist ever, and doesn't fill his solos with 100bpm arpeggios and sweep picking. He packs perfect notes and guitar techniques (vibrato and definitely his bends) along with his awesome, punchy tone, to create the best guitar solos ever.
Most Floyd fans will be voting - rightfully - for comfortably numb - however this is also right up there - an incredible solo that perfectly complements an undisputed masterpiece of music.
Time is the most emotional,beautiful and sad solo I know and Dark Side Of the Moon is the best album ever.I think it should be up all those metal solosV 11 Comments
God bless Larry Carlton! Awesome tonal mastery. Didn't like his "Fire Wire" album, though.
This song has not only one, but 5 INCREDIBLE guitar solos. Should be at least in the top 10.
Certainly belongs in the top 10. What's going on here?

While the single version and a few other updates to the classic Beatles song Let It Be experimented with different guitar solos that were good but not great, the original album version's solo is one of the most emotive instances of guitar playing in history. The lead up is incredible, sure, but without a doubt the most amazing thing about this solo is the way that George Harrison's stinging, wailing, beautiful guitar playing seems to perfectly complement Paul McCartney's vocals with the two almost seeming to fuse into one entity of sound. Few solos, or parts of a song in general, have ever made me feel as strongly emotional as I do when I hear the solo in Let It Be.
What a cool guitar solo by George Harrison Who uses blues slides and single note picking to create an awesome sounding solo which really fits in with the song And a cool ending for one if the worlds greatest Bands
It is the perfect solo there are hardly any other songs like this that are able to use the guitar like George did in this song the guitar is so effective and sound so good a lot of other song just have a simple riff that leads into a solo but this song has an efecctive emotional solo that hits you with awesomeness
My personal favorite solo is from the music video, but I love all versions.V 1 Comment
Not one Pantera song on this list? I'm changing that. Floods is not only the most underrated song by Pantera, but the solo by Dimebag is one of the most beautiful masterpieces I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. It boasts melody, and technique, and that backing bass track by Rex Brown only adds so much to that solo. The outro to this song, also done by Dimebag, is just as beautiful.
Should be number 1 at how great it is you have to listen to it and it will prove how great of a Guitarist Dimebag Darrell really was - christangrant
Listen to the other solos in the top ten. Then listen to this. You will realize this at least belongs in the top 5 of all time. RIP DIME

I hate stevieie ray and all the trash music he created during his brief 35 year life.
Now Angus is a man who likes to plug in a guitar to an amp play with no distortion and crank the volume up full and just rock. And Back in Black is an awesome example of blues playing and Angus just plays This solo with such speed and feeling its amazing it just had to be up here
