Top Guitar Shredding Masterpeices

Here is a collection of what in my experience is the best guitar shredding I've heard.

The Top Ten

1 Miles of Machines - Jeff Loomis Miles of Machines - Jeff Loomis

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! - petrucci75hammet

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.

2 Rising Force - Yngwie J. Malmsteen

Nice interplay between the guitar and keyboards I.E. between Malmsteen and Jens Johansson, 2 of the greatest pioneers ever of their respective instruments - petrucci75hammet

3 Snakebite - Racer X

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. - petrucci75hammet

4 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

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! - petrucci75hammet

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) - dragon13304

5 Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci

The intro consists of a really catchy guitar riff, followed by great soloing throughout! - petrucci75hammet

6 Escape Velocity - Jeff Loomis Escape Velocity - Jeff Loomis

More insane guitar shredding from Loomis, it just shows that he's just as capable if not more so outside Nevermore. - petrucci75hammet

7 For the Love of God - Steve Vai For the Love of God - Steve Vai

A masterful achievement in guitar playing which starts of slowly then gradually builds up to the climax in the middle of the song - petrucci75hammet

8 Altitudes - Jason Becker Altitudes - Jason Becker

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

Jason becker is my favorite guitarist of all time

We are talking about Masterpieces, this is it.

9 Surfing with the Alien - Joe Satriani Surfing with the Alien - Joe Satriani

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. - petrucci75hammet

10 Eruption - Van Halen Eruption - Van Halen V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 The Glass Prison - Dream Theater The Glass Prison - Dream Theater

Awesome technical guitar shredding in the intro and also in the instrumental section at the end of the song by Petrucci - petrucci75hammet

12 Children of a Faceless God - Symphony X Children of a Faceless God - Symphony X

Brutal guitar-playing in not just one but TWO solos by Romeo at his best! - petrucci75hammet

13 Flying High Again - Ozzy Osbourne Flying High Again - Ozzy Osbourne

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. - petrucci75hammet
