161 Don't Fear The Reaper - Donald Buck Dharma Roeser

While in my opinion not the best guitar solo that Buck has ever done, it does capture how melodic and beautiful his work is. For other examples (and there are many) of this great guitarist work, try to check out Dominance and Submission, Astronomy, The Vigil and Bucks Boogie just to name a few on top of my head.

162 Born to Lose - Michael Schenker

Slow beautiful Song, Schenker adds another perfect solo. -

163 Bat Country - Synyster Gates

I prefer many other solos but this is really underrated

This should not be as low as it is. Syn is awesome

Why so low? Just because they aren't old doesn't mean A7X can't compare or easily beat most old bands. come on, people! Grow some ears and listen to bat country! You won't regret it.

Amazing solo! - Jado1234

164 Purple Rain - Prince

Greatest guitarist of all time

Incredible solo! Gut wrenching

165 Rock Bottom - Michael Schenker

Go listen to the Strangers In The Night version if you don't like the Phenomenon version (for some stupid reason)

Greatest pure guitar solo with no gimmicks - ever. From Strangers in the Night. Should be in the top 10 at least.

Undeservingly obscure

This solo. Wow.

WHY IS THIS SOLO NOT IN THE TOP 10?

175 Soothsayer - Buckethead

Didn't see this and added it again. Oops. Anyways, this song and frozen brains tell no tales are my favorite bh songs. - Funybox

Awesome song. Probably the best song by Buckethead. He speaks through use of his instrument, and he conveys emotion in this manner exceptionally well.
