Most Difficult Guitar Songs


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Frame by Frame - King Crimson
122 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

123 The Crusade - Trivium
124 Bad Horsie - Steve Vai
125 Magic and Mayhem - Yngwie Malmsteen
126 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

127 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.

128 Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC

It use E7(9+) chords

129 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.

130 Jambi - Tool

The rhythm is too hard.

131 Preaching Blues - Robert Johnson

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

132 Capillarian Crest - Mastodon

A very difficult song to play cleanly

133 Full Tank - Blues Saraceno

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

134 Riff Raff - AC/DC

Try to play this whole song!

135 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

136 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

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

AMAZING SOLO very emotional.

Found this hard at first

138 Mouth for War - Pantera
139 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

I played this song and the timing on this song is possibly the most weird, thing I've seen it took me years to figure it out.

It changes Time multiple times (no pun intended) throughout the RIFF. Oh, and also the solo

The riff isn't hard, but the thing the kills me is the solo

Awesome, difficult turn around

140 Metropolis, Pt. 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper - Dream Theater

It is CRAZY hard! The synchronized guitar and keyboard parts are so fast and hard!
