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

you'll feel like your soul is coming out of your body while listening to this masterpiece solo

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.

Best solo ever. PERIOD.

WHERE IS TO LIVE IS TO DIE - awesomedp900

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.

The best!

3 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 is the perfect solo

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.

46 Hold the Line - Toto

Such an awesome solo! FEELING!

47 Angel of Mercy - Black Label Society
48 The Forgotten - Green Day

It reminds me of someone I love

49 Master of Puppets - Metallica

The first solo, The Hetfield one. Gets a tear in my eye 90% of the time. - CuSemek
