Greatest Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 17

321 Hail to the King - Synyster Gates

For a great song, it seems pretty low on the list

322 Fat Old Sun - David Gilmour

I think this is Gilmour's second Magnum Opus after, or maybe along with, Comfortably Numb, and for that matter, Sheep. Fat Old Sun soars and this solo is as intricate, emotive, and crisp as any Commander Gilmour ever did after 1970, the year Atom Heart Mother came out.

323 Respect the Wind - Eddie Van Halen

Just cause it was made for a movie doesn't mean ITS not great!

324 Asturias (Leyenda) - Isaac Albeniz

It's sad that no one here appreciates the skill required for classical guitar.

325 Scar Tissue - John Frusciante
326 Fight for Your Right - Beastie Boys

Awesome song, 1 of my faves

327 Rock You Like a Hurricane - Michael Schenker
328 Come On Feel the Noise - Randy Rhoads
329 Hound Dog - Scotty Moore

Just rocking. In the most classic way possible. - higgsboson2142

330 Return to Serenity - Testament
331 Fury of the Storm - Herman Li
332 Heroes of Our Time - Herman Li
333 Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Dave Mustaine

I know a lot of this solo is pentatonics played really fast, but hell, isn't that what most of metal soloing is? Dave's final solo is the best pentatonic wanking I've heard and the speed is absolutely mind-blowing.

334 Alive - Pearl Jam

Alive is a great solo but Wishlist is one of the best of all times!

335 Buried alive - Avenged Sevenfold

I love this guitar solo, I wish it were higher

Most complete guitar song ever!

336 Far Beyond the Sun - Yngwie Malmsteen
337 Walk Away - Jake Pitts
338 My Sweet Lord - George Harrison
339 Money - David Gilmour V 1 Comment
340 Angry Again - Marty Friedman
