Hardest Songs to Play on Guitar

The Contenders: Page 3

41 La Villa Strangiato - Rush La Villa Strangiato - Rush

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

42 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

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

43 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana 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

44 Painkiller - Judas Priest 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

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

49 Cult of Personality - Living Colour Cult of Personality - Living Colour
50 Ulazak U Harem - Smak Ulazak U Harem - Smak

Just look it up...

51 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen 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

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

53 Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold Second Heartbeat - Avenged Sevenfold

54 Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix
55 That Was Just Your Life - Metallica That Was Just Your Life - Metallica
56 Forty Six and Two - Tool

It sounds easy, it looks easy, but it is a LIVING NIGHTMARE FROM HELL. I can play Technical Difficulties, Holy Wars, Hangar 18, AND Tornado of Souls (and for the noobs out there, one and eruption). But this song is the dumbest thing in the world. See, it may not have solos, but the structure is bizarre and there's too many variations on one riff. It's like the Holy Wars intro on steroids. Seriously, if you don't belive me, go try to learn it. Don't take any short cuts, just learn it riff by riff. You will die.

57 Diary of a Madman - Ozzy Osbourne 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)

58 Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix

How am I the first one to add this? Jesus christ - BrianScott01

59 Soothsayer - Buckethead Soothsayer - Buckethead

It's hard to play because of all the times when he uses his unique killswitch during the song to make soothsayer... soothsayer

60 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
