Most Difficult Guitar Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Hotel California - Eagles

One of the favorite

Ok you have a point the beginning is a bit difficult to master I'll give you that

Best song

82 Bleed - Meshuggah

This list is dumb lol bleed should be higher

Should be number 1

Really #85? try playing it for 8 mins straight your arms will fall off

83 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

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.

The first solo is about as complicated as Eruption, and the second solo has parts in it that are 4 notes per beat. It's so complex that tab websites don't even know the right notes for it.

That first solo is as complicated as Eruption

84 Thrasher - Evile
85 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

Too good. May not be popular, but should be on the' MUST LISTEN 'list

Everything about this song is great. Especially the solo

86 Raining Blood - Slayer

Loads of legato picks, and some tremolo, with power chords. Nearly impossible to play without a whammy bar, and finally a Drop D Tuning. There, you have Slayer's hit from their album Reign in Blood, titled "Raining Blood"

87 Fermented Offal Discharge - Necrophagist
88 Paradigm Shift - Liquid Tension Experiment

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.

89 Fade to Black - Metallica

Not their hardest, but should have been higher

90 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

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

91 Altitudes - Jason Becker

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

92 I'm the One - Van Halen
93 Spanish Caravan - The Doors

That is one hell of a song for fingers! - rocknrolldude

94 Heroes of Our Time - Dragonforce

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.

95 Street Spirit - Radiohead
96 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

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.

97 Nottingham Lace - Buckethead

One of the fastest shredders of all time, this song should be the 1rst

98 Symbiotic in Theory - Necrophagist
99 Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ridiculous difficult song, the transitions from chords is almost impossible for people who have only been playing the guitar for only a year. The flow to it is the main thing needed to learn. - L-Lads
