The Contenders: Page 6

101 Sloe Gin - Joe Bonamassa

Such an emotional song and guitar solo. Deserves to be higher. - BrianScott01

102 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

103 Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix

This and the Instrumental version, are one of the most emotional pieces of beautiness ever

104 Rainbow In the Dark- Vivian Campbell
105 Money - Pink Floyd

I can't believe this isn't on the list! The guitar solo in Money is crazy iconic. What Pink Floyd fan doesn't know every note by heart?

111 Tender Surrender - Steve Vai

Sure, it sounds like its played over a cheesy backing track, but hey man, it's Steve Vai! His impeccable timing and good phrasing creates an interesting and complicated combination of sounds.

112 Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson

First song that comes to mind when I think of guitar solos.

113 Nottingham Lace - Buckethead

If you want a true definition of a solo you will listen to this one. If you want an eargasm solo you will listen to this solo live. - JXJ

114 Stargazer - Ritchie Blackmore

Blackmore is amazing...n it's the best 1

115 Down by the River - Neil Young
116 Limelight - Alex Lifeson

Alex incorporated so much emotion into this song, giving the solo a lonely and isolated sound. It fits so well with the lyrics. It also shows you don't have to shred like crap to make an amazingly beautiful solo.

117 Let It Be - Beatles
118 Welcome to the Jungle - Slash

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE WON'T YOU BRING IT TO YOUR KNEES? I love the guitar solo it goes perfectly with the tone of the rest of the song.

119 Knockin on Heaven's Door - Slash
120 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent V 1 Comment
