Top 10 Greatest Guitar Shredding MasterpiecesHere is a collection of what in my experience is the best guitar shredding I've heard.
The Top Ten
This is really some of the best guitar shredding I've ever heard - it has an insane neo-classical guitar riff by Jeff Loomis, one of the best if not THE greatest modern guitarist!
When somebody can create such a truly masterful guitar solo it makes you wonder how Jeff Loomis is so underappreciated in the overall music world. One of the most skillful guitarists I have ever heard.
Nice interplay between the guitar and keyboards I.E. between Malmsteen and Jens Johansson, 2 of the greatest pioneers ever of their respective instruments
Oh, yeah! Definitely number 1 or 2.
The killer riff at the beginning of this song is backed up by a high-speed, highly skilled solo by Paul Gilbert, he really gives it all in this song.
The intro consists of a really catchy guitar riff, followed by great soloing throughout!
As good as they say Dave Mustaine is, in my opinion Marty Friedman is just a step above in technical proficiency; this is demonstrated in this fast highly skilled solo, one of the best guitar solos of all time!
An extremly epic solo! From the awesome and former lead guitarist of megadeth marty friedman. This solo will never be beat by any other megadeth guitarist (maybe dave)
A masterful achievement in guitar playing which starts of slowly then gradually builds up to the climax in the middle of the song
One of Steve Vai's epic!
This was the first shredding song that actually gave me the chills, I could actually understand and feel each note, it was not playing fast just for the sake of playing fast. I can still remember listening it for the first time, it just took me to another level of consciousness and it still does every time.
Best instrumental ever... Much better than commercial songs of joe satriani and steve vai such as surfing with aliens and for the love of god
Hard to believe he was just 19 at that time! Altitudes is considered as one of the best songs with sweep picking.
Jason becker is my favorite guitarist of all time
More insane guitar shredding from Loomis, it just shows that he's just as capable if not more so outside Nevermore.
This has to be my favourite Buckethead track.
Buckethead is the best...he must on the top of the list...
This is the guy that really changed me into a guitar lovin soloist, easily the perfect guitarist
This is a hard rock guitar classic - very solid and groovy guitar riffing & soloing by Satch - this is really what started [or at least expanded] the genre of instrumental rock.
I disagree with visitor's comment that this song started shredding. Neither Eddie Van Halen invented tapping nor he invented shredding. Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix were also using some fast techniques which inspired shredding. Even Ritchie Blackmore later used shredding. And about tapping, Italian guitarist Vittorio Camardese used tapping on his acoustic guitar. Which he did it in 1965. more than 10 years before him.
This got em all started!
Awesome technical guitar shredding in the intro and also in the instrumental section at the end of the song by Petrucci
When I saw at the tabs. Oh my God! What is this! If I had 10 finger more still I wouldn't be able to play the solo. This fret to that fret, that fret to that fret. Its not only the chords, even the strumming is also very fast. Especially after the bending.
Brutal guitar-playing in not just one but TWO solos by Romeo at his best!
This song's solos have,
- Fast hammer ons and pull offs
- Fast alternate picking
- Sweep Picking
- String Skipping
I am not considering bending and vibratos. But it has everything a shredding solo needs.
Underrated and overshadowed somewhat by Mr Crowley and Crazy Train, in my opinion this is Rhoad's most inventive and memorable solo, bringing out his distinctive neo-classical style.
Best guitar solo
Have you heard the solo yet!? That chromatic shred 😍 pure magic at 2.37!
