Greatest Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 18

341 Hail to the King - Synyster Gates

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

342 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.

343 Respect the Wind - Eddie Van Halen

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

344 Asturias (Leyenda) - Isaac Albeniz

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

345 Scar Tissue - John Frusciante
346 Fight for Your Right - Beastie Boys

Awesome song, 1 of my faves

347 Rock You Like a Hurricane - Michael Schenker
348 Come On Feel the Noise - Randy Rhoads
349 Hound Dog - Scotty Moore

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

350 Return to Serenity - Testament
351 Fury of the Storm - Herman Li
352 Heroes of Our Time - Herman Li
353 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.

354 Set to Fail - Lamb of God
355 The Unforgiven III - Metallica
356 Alive - Pearl Jam

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

357 The God that Failed - Metallica
358 Tom Sawyer - Rush

Great guitar and great drums! ! ! !

359 Bron-Yr-Aur - Led Zeppelin
360 Third Eye - Tool
