One of the best Death Metal solos ever, this should be higher up on the list.

68 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
69 Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci

Has someone heard this one? Because this should be number1... The entire song is "that perfect solo" only a virtuoso guitarist like Petrucci can play... The last part is so good... Every time I listen to it gives me goosebumps...
