Greatest Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Light My Fire - Robby Krieger
102 Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix

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

103 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?

What he said.

104 Watermelon In Easter Hay - Frank Zappa
105 Whispering A Prayer - Steve Vai
106 Painkiller - Glenn Tipton

Should be waaay higher!

107 Since I’ve Been Loving You - Jimmy Page

Should be on the TOP TEN

Top 10 for me! Page = guitar God!


108 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.

109 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

This is Top Ten class. Unbelievable to see this at 70.

You it's good when it's the B

NO COnfusion at all
Played by Greatest guitarist BUCKETHEAD
GReat melody and just breath taking... //.. /,

111 Stargazer - Ritchie Blackmore

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

112 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.

113 Knockin on Heaven's Door - Slash
114 Down by the River - Neil Young
115 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent V 1 Comment
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 Road to Nowhere - Zakk Wylde
119 Immigrant Song - Jimmy Page V 3 Comments
120 Moonage Daydream - Mick Ronson

Don't know if this is the best but it is my favourite.
