Most Beautiful Guitar Solos


The Top Ten

1 Comfortably Numb (2nd solo) - Pink Floyd

A comepletely amazing solo, probably the best ever. Actually, I just remembered free bird... - nic1997ps3

Maybe the best guitar solo ever. Everything is perfect. Sound, timing and pure emotion. This one will never get old.

My absolute favourite of all time. I saw this in concert and it just blew me away!

Simply beautiful, not just super fast strings of notes (eruption), repeated licks (freebird) or empty playing. This solo is filled with such emotion translated beautifully by one of the best guitarists in my opinion.

Slash does an awesome job on this solo -

3 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses

The Most beutiful Solo I know -

4 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Far better than all other songs on this list (Comfortably Numb being #2). 3rd greatest next to Eruption and November Rain

Simply Awesome, 10 minutes of awesomeness

This song takes you to heaven.

5 Don't Cry - Guns N' Roses

Sad song especially slash's solo. The intro is the best too. One of the best guitar solo of rock and metal.. Should be in top 3

6 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
7 One - Metallica

The solos in the middle of the song are great! - rock2metal


8 Ordinary World - Duran Duran

I guess the most underrated guitar solo ever... It actually makes the song better each time you hear it... I guess many of us who know the song hear this song just for the guitar solo

A great solo by one of the most underrated rock band. I agree that this guitar solos is way too underrated and I bet it gives the essence two this song.. Yes truely a great guitar solo

A great song by a not so famous band... I remember this song back then and I used 2 listen to it all day long - amitcornelius1

The solo is make me cry

9 Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas Priest

The 1st solo gives me chills, especially its last notes. - Metal_Treasure

10 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Epic solo, and a great song. - dragon13304

The Contenders

11 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
12 Highway Star - Deep Purple
13 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

The outro will make you cry

First solo is like the greatest solo ever

14 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Most awesome solo, if not, the best metal solo of all time that has ever been created. Marty Friedman put all his talent into this one solo... Rate it high. - alexitahmid

Marty Is a WIZARD and peoples don't know what does mean solo how the hell nothing else matters more than Tornado of Souls, everyone is poser nowadays

15 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
16 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Jimmy page in this music plays like a real boss, and the song is insanly beatiful.

17 Sleeping Sun - Nightwish

Most beautiful song.

18 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
19 Floods - Pantera

All the other songs at the top are just up there due to them being mainstream. Although Pantera can be considered mainstream as well, this song isn't. The solo and outro are incredibly moving. One of the most powerful solos I have ever heard.

Don't get me wrong. But the was nothing beautiful. It was poorly made because of rapid pitch increases-decreases. But yes, the outro was beautiful. I even have a looped version of it. But the outro WAS NOT a solo. It was more likely a riff. - zxm

How is this not on this list? The outro solo is one of the most beautiful, most underrated solos I've ever heard.

Awesome. RIP Dimebag
