The Contenders: Page 8

141 Burn - Ritchie Blackmore

This solo just gets better and better as it progresses and the climax is unbelievable.

Great solo!

142 Don't Stop Me Now - Brian May
143 A Kind Of Magic - Brian May
144 War Pigs - Black Sabbath
145 Mr Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

This song is already on the list - ACDC-

146 To Live is to Die - Kirk Hammet

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

147 Paradise City - Slash

The solo just blows me away every time, just watch him play it live and its insane. its sounds like a mess and it is but its amazing

148 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Prince

Prince's guitar solo is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Truly magnificent.

Everyone bow down. Greatest solo ever!

This is #1! Falling off the stage while worshiping Dhari Harrison - and never missed a beat - sorry Eric the world has never seen a great guitar solo and never will.

Amazing

149 Pieces - Ken Kitamura
150 Achilles Last Stand - Jimmy Page

Strange one, but geat. Is an epic style solo, wich normally are really boring or repetitive, but in this case is really fresh. I think this started a new type of solo. He normally doesn't do this type of solos

Better than Stairway, better than Since I've Been Loving You and better than Heartbreaker. The most underrated Page solo - BrianScott01

Best solo ever!

Best!

151 Tunnel of Love - Mark Knoplfer

A league of its own...

Subtle and emocional, one of the most beautiful solo I've ever heard.

Simplu beautiful and surprisingly underrated

152 Stay Away - Ken Kitamura
153 Alive - Mike McCready

This might not be the fastest, flashiest solo out there, but damn McCready plays this solo like a true master. This guy can seriously shred a guitar, but he stays calm and collected to bring a high energy and just all round amazing solo that fits perfectly with the song.

2 minutes of some of the best guitar lines ever played

One of the best solo's of all time

So epic!

154 Let It Rock - Richie Sambora

from the best bon jovi album slippery when wet that has really rocked - richie4life

155 25 or 6 to 4 - Terry Kath

97 no no no no! Please listen if you are a REAL guitar fan! If you are you know that TERRY KATH belongs in the top ten. For example free from guitar. And Jimmy Hendrix is a fan!

The best guitar solo, no exercises induced licks, just plain expression and virtuoso playing, cannot read notes guitar player, My hero

Best guitar solo of all time - because it is technically amazing but also integrates with the piece perfectly

This is like one of the top 7 guitar solos ever there is no way it should be at 122

156 Wet Sand - John Frusciante

There's no better solo that I've ever heard! He plays the guitar in this solo as though he's dying, and may never play again. John Frusciante=God

The emotions that Frusciante puts in that solo, it's just incredible. I wouldn't know why you shouldn't vote for a solo like this.

This is a really under rated song! I urge everyone to listen to it once!
You'll be stunned to see how someone can express so much emotions just through a guitar solo! I'm sure everyone will change their mind after listning to this song
Every time I listen this song it sends shivers down my spine!
Amazing solo

157 Dani California - John Frusciante

Impossible to play solo.

Epic

158 Open Your Eyes - Mark Tremonti
159 Bad Medicine - Richie Sambora
160 Brothers In Arms - Mark Knopfler

I've listened to all sorts of guitar music, and this should be ranked number one in my opinion. There is just so much heart, soul, and feeling put into the composition of the guitar solo. It's just so tasteful. But perhaps as someone said of Knopfler's playing on this song, calling it a "solo" demeans the quality of the guitar writing and playing, and it blends so subtly into the song.

For me this is the best guitar song ever (above 'Sultans of Swing' and 'Hotel California' - though the live acoustic version on the 'Hell Feezes Over' disc is beautifully played by Felder and Walsh).

Brings tears to my eyes every time

Really really great should be in the top ten

Really really great, should be in the top ten
