Most Difficult Guitar Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 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

142 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!

143 Smooth - Santana
144 Shepherd of Fire - Avenged Sevenfold

You can solo this song. You must basic because the song is solo very fast. The economy picking, D minor scale sweeping very fast.

145 Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

Maybe not the most difficult, but I like it

146 Disposable Heroes - Metallica
147 Transcend - Polyphia

The song is just insane. If you can play it, then congrats!

148 When the Water Breaks - Liquid Tension Experiment

Holy crap a song that actually belongs on this list.

149 Girl Afraid - The Smiths

Literally Impossible, not merely a matter of technique like a lot of the metal songs on this list. Totally original and nowhere near the same as anything you've ever tried to play or will try to play again.

150 Still Got the Blues - Garry Moore V 1 Comment
151 Larks Tongues In Aspic (Part 1) - King Crimson
152 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Why is this song even on here? It took me 5 minutes to learn. Through the fire and flames is impossible

Why is this On Here?! This is Easy to learn. Most people learn this song really Fast! Take this off the list

Heart Shaped-Box is WAY harder

Pfffhthtthth this is why I don't take these lists seriously

153 One Time - Justin Bieber

ARE YOU KIDDING? WHY IS Justin ON THIS LIST?! YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL MENTALLY INSANE! No, really. I can play better than this song. And I can't play any instrument. Except a little drums. And Brian May is the best ever. QUEEN IS THE BEST!

Even Chuck Norris has a hard time playing this on guitar and having it not sound like crap.

If you think this song is hard whatsoever you need a brain enema. This is easier than Brain Stew. I can't comprehend why someone would think that this song is hard. GROW A BRAIN PEOPLE

So hard, took me forever to learn it. Painkiller and Holy Wars are cake compared to it. (sarcasm) - SoldierOfFortune
