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

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

No techniques, no speed, just feeling and mildness

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.

The guitar literally speaks to your soul.

2 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

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.

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.

when slash went out from the church and play guitar! it's so cool!

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

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!

The best!

4 Stranger In This Town - Richie Sambora



5 Hotel California - The Eagles
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

Goosebumps every time. - Userguy44

8 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

Such pure emotions...

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

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

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