Best Iron Maiden Guitar Soloswolphert
The Top Ten
This song has two solos, which were designed of an amazing form, they represent Adrian and Murray's virtuosity. The first one it introduces us to a condition of peaceful, the beauty of this one only captures the attention of the person who is listening. The second solo shows a perfect balance between melody and the speed. Both are impressive, demonstrating one of the most beautiful compositions in the golden age of Iron Maiden.
This song actually has 3. All three of them kick major ass. Adrian's can often be forgotten because it's smack dab in the middle of the song between two of the greatest solos of Dave Murray's career. Think of it as the glue between two separate moods.
Two great consecutive solos that are both very different from each other, yet bridged together perfectly. The first five seconds of Adrian Smith's solo alone is enough to give one goosebumps.
Stumbled upon this page after googling what everyone thought the greatest Maiden solos were, and I must say I have to agree with everyone! Dave and Adrian kick arse in this song, and it's definitely my favorite maiden solos and never get sick of listening to them. Just a shame that the rest of the song isn't anywhere near as good as the solos!V 4 Comments
I'm c ing them 2nite. Can't wait. I hope they play this. - InsertNameHere
Love the classic album. Dickinson Madien is still great. But Dano,s where its at
Haven't heard too many maiden songs, but I've heard many songs in general to know that this song should be higher! Sickest guitar solo I've heard anyways
Until the time came to reunite us both my spirit!
This deserves to be higher. 3 solos and all are great.
Please put Alexander the Great in the Top 10!V 2 Comments
This guitar solo is legendary! Whenever I hear this song, I can't help but to want to listen to the solo over and over again. It's solos like this one that makes Iron Maiden so incredible.
My all-time favorite of Maiden! Great effort and a joy to watch live indeed
Oh this guitar solo is epic! It beats powerslave by miles that one is far too long this one rocks! Come on you irons! - cameronbrown
This is probaly the best song of iron maiden. I could hear it every day and not get tired of it. This song really rocks my world! Up the Irons!
Best Iron Maiden solo! Fear of the Dark and Wasting Love are good solos too... but they are more emotional than speed!
I think this song has awesome solo.Awesome guitar riffsV 2 Comments
Best solo ever. I actually get myself into the posture without my knowledge and imitate adrain :P
Starts slow, melodic, fitting perfectly with the atmosphere the song tries to bring you, and then it starts to speed up to end with a climax. Adrian Smith at his best.
On no other song have I heard such a perfect ratio of soloing to musical sense. This really adds something to the music, instead of being a flurry of notes there simply to show off the musician's prowess.
Not only a fantastic solo, but it fits the song seamlessly, the solo is like a spectacular dogfight! It's a yes from me!V 1 Comment
The solos are amazing in this piece. gives me the shivers EVERY time I hear it. I have every Maiden album and this song by far has the most compelling and virtuosity of solos than most Maiden songs...though the others on this list are extremely good. Adrian and Steve are amazing..as Gers as well.
One of the more underrated Iron Maiden songs and solos. This is definitely in my top 5 Maiden songs.
While I think Powerslave IS their best. This is 2nd place for Mr and voted for it because it should be at least top 5. It makes you feel so powerful when you listen to it. Not to mention it's like 3 minutes long.
Such a long and feeling solo. By far their best. - Songsta41
WO YAY, LOVE IRON MAIDEN, IRON MAIDEN 4 ever I LOVE YOU IRON MAIDEN, WO ok ill stop, this is one of their greatest Iron maiden solos ever, how can't you love iron maiden? Laugh out loud, peace!V 1 Comment
Mainly due to punching in solo for a while when singing Bruce...
It just fits the whole feel of the song so perfectly.
My absolute favorite maiden solo
How can you not love this whole songs guitar performance
14, really? Iron maiden is the palm of my hand. Solos on the song powerslave, Alexander the great, Rime of... ,stranger.. ,wasted years, flight of... and many many more... Doesn't match up to this song. Mind blowing Solos from both Dave and Adrian, they have thrown every guitar trick in your face and slapped you hard with it. Awesome solo. Hear again and vote friends.
What!?!? This should definitely be higher its one of the most epic solos the world has ever heard.
The whole song's great but for me the solo's better than powerslave's...for me
These 2 back to back solos combine into the greatest solo section maiden have done and it defenetly should be among the first 3V 3 Comments
No doubt best guitar solo. Maybe not the most technical solo, but definitely sound. One of the first bits I learned to play on my guitar. I can't understand why it is ranked so low.
Dave shows why he's the best at what he does in this song aloneV 3 Comments
Dave, Janick and especially Adrian sounds are great in this song!
Yep, this one! The Sign of The Cross. Who doesn't like this one. Maybe it isn't the longest solo. Maybe a couple of seconds long. But this is just an awesome solo. Love the guitars and vocals. (it is blaze bayley so what!? )
Anyway I like bruce dickinson more but this is just awesome
The best solo for me. Great bass in the background. So this song has for me the best solo of all. Also like the Dance of Death solo but this is just the best solo of all! UP THE IRONS!
Very, very awesome solo. I remember that I used to hate this album, but I still loved this solo. (now, I think this album is awesome)V 2 Comments
How is this not on the list, the part leading up to this is so epic! And the solo itself... GODLIKE, enough saidV 1 Comment
How was this not on the list. It has a fantastic solo that really emphasises the songs mood. - IronSabbathPriest
