Most Difficult Guitar Songs

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Fermented Offal Discharge - Necrophagist
102 Acid Rain - Liquid Tension Experiment

This had to be from Petrucci (Guitar) - MetalPatz

103 Operation Ground and Pound - Dragonforce

A great power metal song, that actually has good rhythms, good solos, and memorable lyrics. This great song still has its good share of frustrating moments of how many times messing up the solos that you spend hours working on.

104 Scream - Avenged Sevenfold

Haven't heard anyone play this without messing up a little bit except for Syn himself.

Even Synyster Gates himself said that this is Scream has the hardest solo to play.

105 The Glass Prison - Dream Theater

All I've got to say this that, this is hell of the guitar.
Woah. Through the Fire and Flames? Seriously? Most of DT song are zillion times difficult than Dragon song.
Eruption will be easy, If you can get its tapping. The arppegios, sweeps, Guitar Scales, 10x faster than Triplets, and its pretentious time signature. I can learn this song, like 2 years(If you only focus on this one).

One more idiotic placement. Of course this is very difficult and should be in top 10 if not first placement.

106 The Impossible - Mike Dawes

This song alone is an evolution to the guitar in my opinion. It is Poly-rhythmic to the t and it has an amazing array of various techniques to go along with it. This song is true art!

107 B.R.O. - Paul Gilbert

That song's guitar solo is extreme and is nothing I could play in my thirty-two years in playing guitar. To be honest, that solo is not harmonic. All I see in that solo is just making noise, I do not even know if that song is in G Major, A Minor or E Minor. Harmonic solos just sound so much more elegant. I have no clue on what is even going on in that song!

108 Extreme Unction - Necrophagist

This song specially because it sounds amazing, but any Necrophagist's songs are like hell to play, and it must sound clean! Doubt anyone here can do it!

109 It's Not Safe to Swim Today - Veil of Maya
110 Discipline - King Crimson

Two lead guitars one playing in 14/16 and the other in 15/16, then every sixteen bars they change to a different progression of notes

111 Entre Dos Aguas - Paco de Lucia

Seriously, no one ever heard this song? Flamenco at its best...
No John McLaughlin in the top 100 And Yngwie Malmsteen nowhere even within the top 50s?
And how many has actually mastered the solo of "A moment of Clarity" by Chuck Schuldiner?

112 Poison Was the Cure - Megadeth

The riff is so shred crazy, even slowed down it is hard

"Megadeth riffs are like other bands' solos"

113 Holy Angel - Midnight Messiah
114 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

Simple riff, but playing the studio version to a T is nearly impossible. Plus, the tone is killer.

115 Frame by Frame - King Crimson
116 Erotomania - Dream Theatre

Master of puppet's is in the top ten and this isn't even on the list?

First 30s of the song and you got 3 bars of 5/4 and 1 bar of 9/8, that's enough

117 The Crusade - Trivium
118 Bad Horsie - Steve Vai
119 Magic and Mayhem - Yngwie Malmsteen
120 Swing Life Away - Rise Against

Not that hard to replicate the sound and play. Still an awesome song though from one of my favorite. Bands.
