Hardest Songs to Play on Guitar

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Torn Between Scylla And Charybdis - Trivium
62 Freak Show Excess - Steve Vai
63 Electric Eye - Judas Priest
64 Nottingham Lace - Buckethead

Great composition.. Full of emotion.. Fast and fantastic.. Buckethead is just amazing.. He's the best guitarist but is clearly underrated.

65 Hatebreeder - Children of Bodom

One of the most underrated songs out there. Lots of speed picking and sweeps and the whole song is generally extremely hard to play.

66 Inside the Fire - Disturbed
67 Hangar 18 - Megadeth
68 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

The solo isn't hard, its advanced but not the way over the top

Incredibly easy to play song in my opinion. Still badass song, and people think you're actually good if you play it.

This solo was hard for its time. Still its not very easy to play. Especially few licks of this song requires a lot of practice. (the non-plagiarized part). The rip off part is quite easy. - zxm

This song isn't as hard as it sounds.
The first few chords are a little stretchy, but it's easy to get. The first two acoustic parts can be a little hard to get, then a power chord, and easy major/ minor chords, then a solo, not the hardest song, the first song I learned on acoustic. - Plonderss

69 The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin
70 Para Mexer - Animals as Leaders
71 Smooth - Santana
72 A Late Summer's Rain/schizophrenia - John Petrucci

The most shredtastic song on the planet. Just listen to the whole thing. Starts out soft and builds up to an extremely intense shred!

73 Bodhisattva - Steely Dan
74 Perpetual Burn - Jason Becker

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

75 Stash - Phish
76 Tetragrammaton - The Mars Volta
77 Burn It Down - Avenged Sevenfold
78 Cry for Eternity - Dragonforce

So many guitar solos, pretty much impossible to play the whole thing without messing up

79 Never Going Back Again - Fleetwood Mac

Unless you have more than 4 arms, you'll be having a hard time picking this song.

80 Plug in Baby - Muse
