Top 10 Best Metallica Solos Not by Kirk Hammettgemcloben Kirk is the best soloist, by far, but sometimes, bass, rhythm guitar and even drums need their time. Not only guitar solos, including bass and drums.
The Top Ten
A very melodic solo, you can see James is not only the best thrash riffer, but one of the best ballad solo writers. - gemcloben
A very distorted and heavy solo, this is one Kirk or James might not be able to beat. a true shredding piece by the greatest bassist of all time. - gemcloben
I thought this was a guitar solo when I first heard it. it has everything: emotion, heaviness, speed, feel, unique features and all of these perfectly blended into the ultimate instrumental. - gemcloben
Some may say Cliff' best, but I think there are better ones. James and Lars did a great job getting this on the album, they knew they had to. if only the greatest bassist had more solos... - gemcloben
More feeling and emotion than Kirk's solo. - Userguy44
Another solo proving how melodic James can be. - gemcloben
Since they both play this one together, this one can count. - gemcloben
It has not got a distinctive drum solo like other hard rock/metal songs (hot for teacher, painkiller, etc.), but it has many short solos. this song is one of the best songs without Cliff and the drums are a very big part of this. - gemcloben
Not very fitting for Metallica, as this is a major funk solo, but Rob made it work. A very underrated talent. - gemcloben
There is a very short bass solo by Cliff, and even with James and Kirk, this very quiet solo still stands out. 'Cause it's Cliff. RIP Cliff! - gemcloben
It's mind-blowing fast! An underrated solo by Dave Mustaine!
I'm still mindblown by what James can do at his 40's.
