Most Beautiful Guitar Solos

The Top Ten

1 Comfortably Numb (2nd solo) - Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb (2nd solo) - Pink Floyd Cover Art

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.

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

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

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

2 Give In to Me - Michael Jackson Give In to Me - Michael Jackson Cover Art

Slash does an awesome job on this solo

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

The Most beutiful Solo I know

4 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Cover Art

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.

Fly hig I'm a free bird! Yeah!

5 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Cover Art
6 Don't Cry - Guns N' Roses Don't Cry - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

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

7 Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas Priest Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas Priest Cover Art

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

8 Ordinary World - Duran Duran Ordinary World - Duran Duran Cover Art

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

The solo is make me cry

9 One - Metallica One - Metallica Cover Art

The solos in the middle of the song are great!

Love

10 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

The Contenders

11 Highway Star - Deep Purple Highway Star - Deep Purple Cover Art
12 November Rain - Guns N' Roses November Rain - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

First solo is like the greatest solo ever

The outro will make you cry

13 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth Tornado of Souls - Megadeth Cover Art

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.

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

Because Nothing Else Matters is a more suitable solo for this list. Tornado of Souls is a better solo, but Nothing Else Matters suits the list more, I think anyway.

14 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica Nothing Else Matters - Metallica Cover Art

Epic solo, and a great song.

15 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

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

16 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits Cover Art

I love the guitar playing in this!

The best

17 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Cover Art
18 Sleeping Sun - Nightwish Sleeping Sun - Nightwish Cover Art

Most beautiful song.

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.

One and only solo to make my tears flow as movingly as the string bends, May You Rest In Peace Darrell Abbott, Forever In My Heart And Memories With You Will Always Be Loved, See You Again Brother! M/

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

20 The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana Cover Art
21 Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow Cover Art
22 Civil War - Guns N' Roses Civil War - Guns N' Roses Cover Art
23 These are the Days of Our Lives - Queen These are the Days of Our Lives - Queen Cover Art

Hands down, best guitar solo ever. Dr. May was a virtuoso

24 Entwined by Vengeance - Vital Remains
25 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish Ghost Love Score - Nightwish Cover Art

while I agree that sleeping sun has an awesome solo, this one I just better. while Emppu isn't the best guitarist ever, damn that guy can write some sick solos :S
