Greatest Guitar Songs (Rock)

It's simple. Greatest guitar songs ever. Title, band, guitarist.

The Top Ten

1 Alison Hell (Annihilator, Jeff Waters)
2 Highway Star (Deep Purple, Ritchie Blackmore)

The riff is pretty easy, but the both organ and guitar solos are highest quality. This is example of solo that Page couldn't play properly if you ask me. I mean, no offense to Jimmy, but he's overrated as hell.

3 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page)

if anyone can beat that dramatic solo, I would stop listening to music - fpsscarecrow

4 Sweet Child O' Mind (Guns N' Roses, Slash)

anyone with that insane sense of fashion must be able to guitar insanely - fpsscarecrow

5 Rising Force (Yngwie Malmsteen)

This is one of the Top 3 guitar shredding masterpeices of all time! - Metal_Treasure

has better guitar than any song ever written and anyone who doesn't think so can burn in hell

keeps you on the edge of your seat for the next riff - fpsscarecrow
