Hardest Songs to Play on GuitarNote, that these are not by any means the best solos, but are mostly speed picking. God forbid the Guitar Hero company of finding this list. These Songs are what gave me the hardest time.
Don't forget metal bands like Prototype, Brocas Helm... The list goes on and on. And to note also, these are over all hard guitar songs. Many hard solos exist out there, like in Extreme - Play With Me, one of my favorites.

As a guitarist I can testify that this song is far more difficult than some of the top 10s, such as eruption.
Most the songs here aren't actually that bad. Eruption is surprisingly easy. One was the first guitar solo I ever learned.
This song played with the same tone as Eric Johnson allows for absolutely no mistakes. This song deserves number 1.
Absolutely ridiculous as it utilizes intense shredding and very fast measuresV 1 Comment
Try to play the solo... and give up. - Metal_Treasure
Epic solo, riff isn't easy for rookies to play
I can not imagine almost any other musician being able to play such a complex and intricate song such as this one. John Butler plays with such precision, that is almost unmatchable by any other guitarist out there
Hardest song played on a 12 string ( how he plays it) and 6 string
Very hard and complicated song, LOVE IT!
Look this one up live, it's a guitar play song with great drumming too.
The one and only Brian May can be the only one to pull this off perfectly. Sorry, I sound like I'm repeating myself. Uh, just read it till you get it. I Freddie!
The first trash-metal song!
Written by Freddie.
Made by Metallica also.
This is the easiest song to ever play on guitar.
How is this on here? I learned how to play all of it at full speed in less than 5 minutes. Pride and Joy should be on here it is way harder.
Again, another troll item. This song is for beginners. Do you know why? Because it is very slow. A perfect song for beginners. I'd rather choose highway star harder to play than this. - zxm
The riff is easy but the song gets progressively harder... It's not as easy as you would think but it still shouldn't be on this listV 2 Comments
YESS. Don't even Stick To the solo, just improvise
Impossible to play on guitar... Because you can't play 30 seconds (If you managed to figure out where the hell are the guitars in this song (no explanation needed. There are no guitars) before your ears start bleeding
Guitar playing in this song is just orgasmic..V 1 Comment
Gave me a hand cramp the first time I tried it.
Hi I'm Cesar Rodriguez it's somewhere around 7 min it's solo is harder than one. The solo is really one, afterlife, raining blood and canon rock. I tried doing it live in my neighborhood and did not get a single note write. He are some facts BPM 89671 notes per second 1,647 this should be 2 this song is A.K. A BEST SONG EVER/HARDEST SONG EVER!
Holy cow, I don't believe it! No John Petrucci in the top tens! This one has to be in the top 3 at least, it's one of the most difficult songs to play ON ANY INSTRUMENT, EVER!
You guys are weak, if you can play this song perfectly you deserve a lifetime acheivment award and your hands should be placed in sealed oxygenized containers to be remembered for all time.V 1 Comment
This song is the toughest song I've ever played nothing can top it
Eric Clapton's solo on While My Guitar Gently Weeps, while not the hardest technically is an amazingly hard solo to perfect. Clapton's vibrato and string bending are like no one else's and guitarists who have been playing for decades have not been able to perfect it (you can see evidence of this by looking at tutorials for the solo.) In addition to his amazing vibrato and bending, the flames of passion that inspire Clapton's fiery solos burn deep within his soul and that is something that you simply cannot replicate or master. - guyritchi
Clapton's vibrato is literally impossible
This solo is lit
If you want to spend a year in your basement, you should try to learn this song. It's as easy as licking your own elbow.
Very hard to play... if you don't know this song listen it...
No votes come on people. Extremely hard solo; eruption is nothing compared to this one, Randy Rhoads inspired me to play guitar. I'm a Beatles lover but when I listened to this I changed slightly to Neo-classical metal. Great song! Oh and P.S. not to brag but I'm only 12 and can play eruption easy.
