101 The Glass Prison - Dream Theater 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.

102 The Impossible - Mike Dawes 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!

103 Extreme Unction - Necrophagist 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!

104 It's Not Safe to Swim Today - Veil of Maya It's Not Safe to Swim Today - Veil of Maya
105 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

106 Entre Dos Aguas - Paco de Lucia 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?

107 Killing Floor - Jimi Hendrix Killing Floor - Jimi Hendrix

Good luck with this masterpiece.

108 Holy Angel - Midnight Messiah Holy Angel - Midnight Messiah
109 Frame by Frame - King Crimson Frame by Frame - King Crimson
110 Erotomania - Dream Theatre 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

111 The Crusade - Trivium The Crusade - Trivium
112 Bad Horsie - Steve Vai Bad Horsie - Steve Vai
113 Magic and Mayhem - Yngwie Malmsteen
114 Swing Life Away - Rise Against 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.

115 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold 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

116 Take No Prisoners - Megadeth Take No Prisoners - Megadeth

This song makes even an advanced guitarist stop to play for not getting a tendonitis. Not that hard to manage in my eyes, but shows you, you are not trained enough. By the songs listed in front of this it seems like here are mostly guitarists voting for the song they are playing right now. And not everybody ever get to the level to try out this song.

117 B.R.O. - Paul Gilbert 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!

118 Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC

It use E7(9+) chords

119 Scorched - Spawn of Possession Scorched - Spawn of Possession

The song itself is more complex than A lot of solos but there isn't anything over and above. Basically it's just the sheer amount of notes in the song that become A problem not the actual difficulty of any part of it really (although only the better players will be able to play it.. let alone actually play it cleanly. )

Don't bother listening to it, you're not going to understand much.

120 Preaching Blues - Robert Johnson Preaching Blues - Robert Johnson

Your probably going to Hell if you learn this, just saying. Pretty hard too.
