Hardest Songs to Play on Guitar

The Contenders: Page 3

41 La Villa Strangiato - Rush

Even Rush had difficulty playing this live and they wrote the song.

42 Fury of the Storm - DragonForce

One of the fastest and most difficult. Not as hard as Through the Fire and Flames by the same band

Can't Beat it on Expert.P. S How does GuitarHeroPhenom do it
He is CRAZY!
I can do it on Everything except for expert. Only song I can't beat. I can't beat it
WAY TOO HARD!

43 Gray Pianos Flying - Shawn Lane
44 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

There's a lot of really fast picking, and if you don't palm mute it right, it sounds like garbage. - Fiend

45 Fuzz Universe - Paul Gilbert

Oh my word? I cannot believe this song is not mentioned! To anyone voting. PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS SONG BEFORE YOU VOTE. ANYONE WHO HAS RESPECT FOR GREAT GUITAR WILL AGREE THIS SHOULD AT LEAST IN THE TOP 5 IF NOT THE BEST!

This killed my brains.
P. S dream theater is so underrated on this list it hurts... AND I don't MEAN PULL ME UNDER!
I can play half the songs in the top ten -. -'

46 Hell's Kitchen - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)

You've gotta be kidding me, there's many in the top 15 that don't even come close to this

47 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

The first time I heard this I went insane. harder that most metal songs

48 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

This was legit the second song I learned on guitar.

The solo is considered as one of the easiest solos of all time. The riff isn't also very hard. - zxm

Whoever thinks they're good playing this should just be like Kurt and kill themselves

This song is extremely easy I learnt it when I was 7 yers of age
And kurt cobain hated this song

49 Diary of a Madman - Ozzy Osbourne

I can't even figure out the first 20 seconds of this! Hardest thing I've ever tried to play! (and I can play some hard things)

The time signatures in it. It's crazy - Edgelord

50 Painkiller - Judas Priest

I think this is #1 on the top tens. An 11 year old played Eruption on Stage of a Steel Panther concert. Never seen an 11 year old play Painkiller before.

I have it all down except for that darn solo. - Fiend

Guitar solo SICK AND HARD

51 Close to the Edge - Yes
52 Gemini - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)
53 Riff Raff - AC/DC

NO! What? Why is this even on this list?

54 Cult of Personality - Living Colour
55 Ulazak U Harem - Smak

Just look it up...

56 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen

This one is more difficult than Eruption in my opinion.

What kind of list is this without Hot For Teacher!?

I'm Learning To Play This And I'm 10 It's Really Hard - BeatlesFan1964

57 Star Spangled Banner - Jimi Hendrix

Go and listen to this. This is the hardest song. It is basically just Jimi showing us how amazing his skills are - VaticanCameos

58 Smooth - Santana
59 Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold

Solo is hard, just try the opening riff. - zxm

60 Perpetual Burn - Jason Becker

Why is this song not only not in the top 3 but it is not even on the list?
