181 Hey You - David Gilmour V 2 Comments
182 Echoes - David Gilmour

Most underrated solo and song of all time

This is the best song I have ever heard with the best solo I have ever heard. The solo sends chills down my spine just from the very first note and it continues althoughout. It's a 23 minute journey you will never forget. - wubbalubbadubdub

183 Midnight Blues - Gary Moore

I love this solo, but have you ever heard The Loner & Empty Rooms from Live in Stockholm? I have never heard such talent from both these solos. They are each 15 minutes long. They are played with such passion and I can't believe this man is not mentioned as one of the best guitar players of all time. I have heard many he is better than most of the ones listed here. I only wish I had had the extreme fortune of hearing him in person. He is a living legend. DeDe

Better than most guitar players on or off this list. Check him out. You will be amazed.

One of may top solos from the most underated player ever! 10 out of 10!

This guitar solo really soars, not many other solos give you the sensation of flight like this one does.

189 The Count of Tuscany - Dream Theater

Really?... only 167... this should be in top 20 at the very least. john petrucci has unquestionable skill in terms of every level of skill on the guitar and this whole song shows that

190 Under a Glass Moon - John Petrucci

The fact that this is at #204 should be punishable

191 The Final Countdown - John Norum

This song is basically considered a "One Hit Wonder" to many people, so when songs are past there generation people tend to forget a song like The Final Countdown. Even though it is "forgotten by many", it has one of the greatest and coolest guitar solo's I have ever heard!

192 Cemetery Gates - Dimebag Darrell

Come on get this higher

In this solo dime shows that he can really make a emotional solo and then move into a great headbanging solo


193 The End - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison

Three legends exchanging guitar solos in this awesome final Beatles song. I love the musical chemistry in this band.

This should be number one!

194 Anastasia - Slash
195 Pennyroyal Tea - Kurt Cobain

How is this not on the list this is easily the greatest solo from metallica

197 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - David Gilmour
198 Misirlou - Dick Dale

Undoubtly the best phrasing I've ever heard in metal. Dime sounds like David Gilmour here - pure ecstasy. Criminally underrated song. - SilverBane
