There is no comments. Just try to play it.
This should be in the top 10 and not at #187. - Metal_Treasure
Just listen to it. My God.
This song is friggen Impossible! I would not put it in the top 5 but definitely in the top 10V 2 Comments
Absolutely ridiculous intro, definitely the hardest bit of the song right there... But that's still MORE than enough to merit it being the hardest song! Incredible start to a brilliant album!
To be fair, you need to at least listen to ALL of these songs before voting. This is hands down the most difficult, check their YouTube clip.
This could be one the easiest songs ever written. It's just keyboard and power chords
It many chords hard one word on one chords
Have 8 minutes to play use many power chords
466 chords all the way lol
Not that hard. Just try some downpicking and move your fingers from one fret to another. - zxm
Holy Diver... Mr. Crowley may be the hardest song of all time (other than something by buckethead)... I am actually trying to learn this right now, and I can guarantee its's harder than Eruption. Eruption is like playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on piano compared to THIS!
How is this not already on the list, it is way harder than Crazy Train and has 3 solos, 2 of which are ridiculous and show the true talent of the legend Randy Rhodes, this song is a better representation of Rhodes as a guitarist than Crazy Train.
That first solo is as complicated as Eruption
That is one hell of a song for fingers! - rocknrolldude
ARE YOU KIDDING? WHY IS Justin ON THIS LIST?! YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL MENTALLY INSANE! No, really. I can play better than this song. And I can't play any instrument. Except a little drums. And Brian May is the best ever. QUEEN IS THE BEST!
Even Chuck Norris has a hard time playing this on guitar and having it not sound like crap.
If you think this song is hard whatsoever you need a brain enema. This is easier than Brain Stew. I can't comprehend why someone would think that this song is hard. GROW A BRAIN PEOPLE
Right as I saw this I nearly died. Seriously who puts a song with no guitars on a list about songs with guitars? Autism is becoming an epidemic.V 15 Comments
Not their hardest, but should have been higher
The speed and accuracy of the guitar playing in this piece are mind-boggling. Easily one of the hardest, if not the hardest piece to play on guitar
Those sweeps man...the accuracy required is incredible! The song whole is a combination of different guitar techniques played very fast. The melodic part and bendings again are difficult too. No tricks to play it...just play A LOT. And the melody is amazing!
Not only does it require incredible speed, it requires you to move up and down the fretboard constantly
I don't expect this to be high up on the list, but still, I think it should be somewhere on the list. It may not be a tough guitar solo to screw off on, but to truly nail every note like Jimmy does? Well that can certainly get a little frustrating.
One of the fastest shredders of all time, this song should be the 1rst
The Champion Guitarist Herman and Sam Totman Perform this song and the guitar solo in this song is 3.74m long and they play with 103.4 Note per second.
Of all the songs of Dragonforce, this is THE hardest song. Speed, accuracy, technique, you need EVERYTHING to play this.
It is challenging if you can't get the thumb slap simultaneously with the forefinger down stroke. Many examples of people thinking they are playing this correctly, but are really missing some of the passing notes on the downstroke that are hard to hit accurately when thumb slapping at the same time. Another example of how good this guy is on guitar. It is nowhere near as difficult to play as his Neon, but the technique definitely takes time to learn and master.
This thing is 90? Haha. HAHAAHA. MUWAHAHAAHA. This is the hardest song on the whole list. The average speed of this thing is higher than anything else. It has the most insane alternate picking, weird rhytmic passages, insane legato lines (you know how there are big stretches and there are BIG stretch es? t his has 6-7 fret stretches, while playing 4 notes per string, legato, at like 160 bpm. I have never seen anyone, Batio included, do that.)
This thing features arpeggios played faster than any weekend warrior and any popular band (Metallica? Gu ns? a re you guys joking?) can strum, fully swept, going on forever.
This thing is so messed up that it even features parts of crosspicking (around 5:55 into the song) after parts of scale runs that would challenge even Batio.
All of this with a very wide vibrato.
Playing through with enough delay to make every mistake into a deafening avalanche.
And here you guys are talking about Green Day. Hah.
Funny very funny that this is no 85! It should be of course in first 5, its very difficult. I can play solo ONe from Metallica, but cannot play this. Its just one stage higher...V 1 Comment
Good luck with this masterpiece.
Nuts. She never seems to play it the same way twice either. First time I got a finger blister in years. Day 3 and I'm only 2 bars in...
The acoustic/classical intro is INSANE! I've had the hardest time getting the hang of it! the riff itself isn't very hard...but that intro...PHEW!
