Greatest Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Down by the River - Neil Young
122 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.

123 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.

124 Knockin on Heaven's Door - Slash
125 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent V 1 Comment
126 Europa - Carlos Santana
127 Let It Be - Beatles
128 Road to Nowhere - Zakk Wylde
129 Immigrant Song - Jimmy Page V 3 Comments
130 Moonage Daydream - Mick Ronson

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

131 All for Nothing - Brad Delson

If this is the guy from Linkin Park he deserves a lower position.

132 Come Clarity - Björn Gelotte
133 Hand of Doom - Karl Logan
134 Whiskey In The Jar - Eric Bell
135 Nothing Else Matters - James Hetfield

This solo is the definition of what Metallica along side fade to black. eruption is not bad but its not good either

98 what?! This solo (albeit short) is so full of emotion and feeling I just have to stop what I'm doing and just experience it every time. Can I call it a SOULo? I'm calling it a soulo. Top 20 at least.

136 Hotel California - Eagles

Guys stop repeating these this is the third repeat from the top 10.

137 Montana - Frank Zappa
138 Xanadu - Rush
139 Mr Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

This song is already on the list - ACDC-

140 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.
