163 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.

167 Stargazer - Ritchie Blackmore

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

168 Hysteria - Steve Clark, Phil Collen

This entire record is full of amazing solos. Animal, Love And Affection, etc...

169 Drive Home - Guthrie Govan
170 Midnight Blues - Gary Moore

I love this solo, but have you ever heard The Loner & Empty Rooms from Live in Stockholm? I have never heard such talent from both these solos. They are each 15 minutes long. They are played with such passion and I can't believe this man is not mentioned as one of the best guitar players of all time. I have heard many he is better than most of the ones listed here. I only wish I had had the extreme fortune of hearing him in person. He is a living legend. DeDe

Better than most guitar players on or off this list. Check him out. You will be amazed.

One of may top solos from the most underated player ever! 10 out of 10!

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.

Life son gets short-changed... this solo is beautiful.

Really?... only 167... this should be in top 20 at the very least. john petrucci has unquestionable skill in terms of every level of skill on the guitar and this whole song shows that

178 The End - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison

Three legends exchanging guitar solos in this awesome final Beatles song. I love the musical chemistry in this band.
