Top Ten Hardest Avenged Sevenfold Songs to Play On the GuitarJAE29 Just what I think through my own experiences. I'm sure they'll level out a little after people vote.
The Top Ten
Its not hard... Well until you get to the solo that's gave me blisters and didn't even finish it
Fastest solo ever
Pure shredding - GuitarMann
If you play lead, good luck. The WHOLE SONG has one giant and complex Synyster Gates lead over it.
This song really isn’t that hard. It’s pretty bare bones for sevenfold. It’s by no means a bad song though.
Don't get me wrong, Afterlife is my favorite song by these guys, and is really tough to play, but the chord sequence in which you have to play the solo in, nonetheless the intro, are insanely fast and hard to pull off, but that is why the guitar solo of this song is one of the best of all time. - RazorBaby
This one is probably the hardest in my opinion, just take a hear to speed & aim
I'm sorry, but why is this so high up on this list. I mean like there are no blisteringly fast solos or insanely hard riffs. anyone with at least 4 years of guitar under their belt could learn this in a matter of hours.
If I recall correctly, I hated learning this because there were parts of the song where I would have mute one of the strings instead of skipping that specific string. However, I couldn't palm mute. I voted this because most of these songs aren't that hard or complex, it's just the solos that make them difficult. However, they (solos) are just fast and all you need to do is play them slowly to figure out the patterns, then work up from there. If you brute force your way through, then of course you will suck. Anyway, do you guys know any hard riffs in Avenged Sevenfold. I can only think of Unholy Confessions, Blinded in Chains, and Save Me. However, none of those are hard like Holy Wars from Megadeth. So where are the hard riffs. Tell where they are!
Way harder than Afterlife.
Hardest, fastest, and the most complex a7x guitar solo,and it's enjoyable.
This is easily the most dreadful song to play on the guitar. The amount of sweep picking is incredibly insane. Playing it without getting a finger cramp is nearly impossible.
The intro this song is nuts. I have the most trouble playing it when it intensifies. At least the solos aren't so God Damn long.
Has anyone ever tried to play the outro acoustic solo?!
Gates even said himself that this one was crazy hard because of the solo. He was worried about being able to play it live.
This song should be close to the top... Its much harder than unholy confessions.
Are you kidding? This solo goes ALL OVER THE PLACE, with hardly any pausing and at a VERY fast tempo. Don't even get me on that part with all those slides in only 2 seconds.
Afterlife shouldn't be in first, it's not that hard to play. You just need to know how to sweep pick. This song requires a lot more technique, not to mention there's a lot of accidental notes that don't fit the key.
The tapping intro is very hard and the sweeping near the end is also insane.
The drumming on this is beyond words.
This solo is killer and amazing and can be very hard in most parts
Just wanted to get this on the list; still, it is hard. - GuitarMann
The lead in the Chorus is insane and the solo never stops going fast. Lots to learn in this song and should be high on the list.
Why did nobody mention this?
