Guitar Solos With the Most Feeling

Which guitarist created a solo that has so much emotion and feeling in their playing?

The Top Ten

1 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

I agree 100% that this song should be #1. David Gilmoure is just awesome. His guitar playing oozes soul. His solo projects are also fantastic if you want some good guitar playing.

Amazing solo! I'm trying to play this solo... Virtually it's not difficult, but the technics David employs is the difference...

Absolutely amazing, gives me chills every time. Reminds me of good times and always brings me tears.

It is so damn good. Every string plucked is a step closer to heaven. It's beautiful. and it's Pink Floyd how can you not love it.

2 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Made me cry. So sensational. This is one of the best solos that I had ever heard. The best thin about this solo is that it touch you deep inside, it makes you feel like never before.

This is a ridiculous solo, if you haven't heard it you definitely need to. This is definitely my favorite solo of all time, regardless of what others say.

This song and solo should be number 1... When slash get out of the church it is just so amazing

When you here this solo... You get a sad feeling... Rly great.. A solo which is a song in itself.. Superb. Feeling

3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

It is a thing of beauty and no matter how biased you are you have to agree that this is the greatest and most emotionally inclined solo of all time.

Cause its jimmy page!

Oooh, it makes me wonder.

4 Stranger In This Town - Richie Sambora Stranger In This Town - Richie Sambora Cover Art
5 Hotel California - The Eagles Hotel California - The Eagles Cover Art
6 One - Metallica

This is perhaps the greatest guitar solos ever written. I stars with Mr. Hetfield's rhythm and then Mr. Hammett's solo. The beautiful solo starts with some serious feelings(however not as much as in Welcome Home) and then continues with beautiful imaginations. And suddenly around 1:25 mood of the song swings and suddenly it is full of happy feelings. That part was just mind blowing. I felt like I was flying in the air. Definitely heart touching solo.

7 Time - Pink Floyd Time - Pink Floyd Cover Art

Goosebumps every time.

8 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest Cover Art

This song should be at least in the Top 5 of this List..!

Esp. the 1st solo - its last notes give me goosebumps

Such pure emotions...

Has always bin my all time favourite guitar solo. Hell of a Band 🤘🏻

9 Story of the Blues - Gary Moore Story of the Blues - Gary Moore Cover Art
10 Fade to Black - Metallica

This should be second to only Stairway to Heaven and how the heck did eruption make this list?!

I heard it and for me it is very emotional. This along with hotel California

Thank god Kirk made a memorable solo.
