66 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Eric Clapton

By the time the Beatles recorded this song there relationships had deteriorated. The solo for this song by Eric clapton remains as one of the best solos ever written and for good reason really suits this song best Beatles solo ever.

67 War Pigs - Tony Iommi
68 Surfing With the Alien - Joe Satriani

An awesome solo. I have noticed this solo has many techniques. Tapping, string bending, vibrato, whammy bar, hammer on, pull off etc. - zxm

69 Transylvania - Dave Murray

The composition itself was great. Solos were amazing.

70 Highway to Hell - Angus Young

This is one of the greatest ever! What its doing down here I don't know?!? - KKKKieran

71 Nothing Else Matters - James Hetfield

The only guitar solo that's ever made me cry when I heard it.

72 Loan Me a Dime - Duane Allman

Another great one in his long line of masterpieces! - mdp1970

Absolutely one of the very best songs, ever!

73 Child In Time - Deep Purple

It should've been in the first place

74 Pigs (Three Different Ones) - David Gilmour
75 Crossroads - Eric Clapton

The mighty Eric Clapton never ceases to amaze with his sheer power and precision, but a formidable contender for his absolute best guitar work, especially his best solo, is the semi-cover of a Robert Johnson song that he did with Cream, Crossroads. The solo is great technically, but the best part is definitely how it feels like a direct extrension of the natural rhythm of the song as well as the devil myths described by the song's lyrics.

Best Solo, Best Guitarist, Best Song.

This is easily the best live solo ever performed. And arguably the best solo ever played. Clapton's improvisation skills are off the charts. - guyritchi

Crossroads number 1 easily

77 Seasons in the Abyss - King/Hanneman
78 Beat It - Eddie Van Halen

Simply an awesome amazing guitar solo by the man himself Eddie van Halen. When Eddie comes in with that solo you just know that it's gonna be a kickass solo and when it ends you want more.

Michael Jackson was a genius to bring eddie because that dude can shred.
