Most Beautiful Guitar Solos

The Top Ten Most Beautiful Guitar Solos

1 Comfortably Numb (2nd solo) - Pink Floyd

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

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.

2 Give In to Me - Michael Jackson

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.

Fly hig I'm a free bird! Yeah!

5 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
6 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

7 Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas Priest

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

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

The solo is make me cry

9 One - Metallica

The solos in the middle of the song are great!


10 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.

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.

The Contenders

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

The outro will make you cry

First solo is like the greatest solo ever

14 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Epic solo, and a great song.

15 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
16 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits

The best

17 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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

18 Sleeping Sun - Nightwish

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.

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

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/

20 Fade to Black - Metallica
21 The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana
22 Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow
23 High Hopes - Pink Floyd
24 Civil War - Guns N' Roses
25 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish

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

26 My Apocalypse - Escape The Fate
27 For the Love of God - Steve Vai

This song has a sort of smooth floweyness to it. Really nice and emotional

28 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

This should be much much higher. At leat in the top 5. That solo of brian may just before the rockn'roll begins is something you'll never forget. And the end solo is great too.

29 Canon Rock - JerryC

So low? It's a complete masterpiece and a genius design of canon turned rock. nothing tops it. Jerry C is a genius... Love this solo

30 The Best of Times - Dream Theater

One of the best melodic solos that was ever written in my opinion. The solo on the last part summarizes the essence of the whole song and by the way, this song was written by Mike Portnoy in memory of his father.

Octavarium dream theater

31 Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls

This is the best build up to a solo you will ever hear.

32 Apples and Oranges - Pink Floyd
33 Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2 - Pink Floyd
34 Space Oddity - David Bowie
35 A Light in the Black - Rainbow

Awesome, the best solo from Ritchie Blackmore - fast, long, intense and crazy (go to 4:00).

36 Stranger In a Strange Land - Iron Maiden

Another great piece from Iron Maiden! Adrian Smith did great work! Easily one of the best Iron Maiden solos. My Personal favorite is Alexander the Great solo though. :D

The most beautiful guitar solo of all time is the one in powerslave

37 Altitudes - Jason Becker

So sad that he can't play the guitar anymore


38 Acid Rain - Avenged Sevenfold
39 Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold

The most beatiful guitar solo don't @me

40 Whispering a Prayer - Steve Vai

Just listen to it. The amount of feeling he puts into this song is incredible!

41 Lines in the Sand - Dream Theater

Come on, all this list is wrong.. Where is Metallica's Fade to Black, or anything from Carlos Santana?
Listen to Lines in the sand solo, that is a beautiful emotional solo by John Petrucci

42 Danger Line - Avenged Sevenfold
43 Something - The Beatles
44 A Letter to Elise - The Cure
45 Time - Pink Floyd

The pretty one! That's all!

46 Stranger In This Town - Richie Sambora
47 Kayleigh - Marillion

Epic, beautiful solo. It starts from low notes, then go to high, and in the end it returns to low. And its very melodic.

48 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles
49 Funkadelic - Maggot Brain

Best ever!

50 Can't Stop Lovin' You - Van Halen
