Most Difficult Guitar Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Clap - Yes

If you can play this whole song then your a expert - Sabbath

122 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

Throw this to the last place!
It's for beginners!

123 Frame by Frame - King Crimson
124 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

125 The Crusade - Trivium
126 Bad Horsie - Steve Vai
127 Magic and Mayhem - Yngwie Malmsteen
128 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.

Laugh out loud I hope you kidding with this one

129 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.

130 Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC

It use E7(9+) chords

131 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.

132 Jambi - Tool

The rhythm is too hard.

133 Preaching Blues - Robert Johnson

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

134 Capillarian Crest - Mastodon

A very difficult song to play cleanly

135 Full Tank - Blues Saraceno

Poor me killed m fingers trying to learn this one give it a try and you fingers will die

136 Riff Raff - AC/DC

Try to play this whole song!

137 Make Total Destroy - Periphery

The rhythms are absolutely insane - syncopated to the max. You use all 24 frets and its got slapping and tapping in it. It makes all the other songs here look oh so easy. Its prog metal, they can really play. Resemblence of meshuggah, Dream Theater, Veil of Maya and Sikth :) its real music.

The only song I think is harder than this is Zyglrox. I don't know what was in the head of Misha when he compossed this

138 Pulse of the Maggots - Slipknot

Good song. Strange rhythm. And the solos will make you grind your teeth in frustration if you try to play them

139 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles feat. Eric Clapton

AMAZING SOLO very emotional.

Found this hard at first

140 Mouth for War - Pantera
