132 A Kind Of Magic - Brian May
133 Mr Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

134 To Live is to Die - Kirk Hammet

Melodically locked in, the dual guitar combo between James and Kirk is an instant classic

135 Working Man - Alex Lifeson

Amazing song with an amazing solo

Yes la villa strangiato should be in this list alex lifeson is an amazing underrated guitar player

La villa should be on here, and probably at least top 20

Alex... WAAAY underrated. Working Man is an early one for him... there are so many more just as good in the Rush epic universe.

137 Pieces - Ken Kitamura
138 Stay Away - Ken Kitamura
139 Let It Be - George Harrison

While the single version and a few other updates to the classic Beatles song Let It Be experimented with different guitar solos that were good but not great, the original album version's solo is one of the most emotive instances of guitar playing in history. The lead up is incredible, sure, but without a doubt the most amazing thing about this solo is the way that George Harrison's stinging, wailing, beautiful guitar playing seems to perfectly complement Paul McCartney's vocals with the two almost seeming to fuse into one entity of sound. Few solos, or parts of a song in general, have ever made me feel as strongly emotional as I do when I hear the solo in Let It Be.

What a cool guitar solo by George Harrison Who uses blues slides and single note picking to create an awesome sounding solo which really fits in with the song And a cool ending for one if the worlds greatest Bands

It is the perfect solo there are hardly any other songs like this that are able to use the guitar like George did in this song the guitar is so effective and sound so good a lot of other song just have a simple riff that leads into a solo but this song has an efecctive emotional solo that hits you with awesomeness

My personal favorite solo is from the music video, but I love all versions.
