Most Underrated Guitar Solos


The Top Ten

1 Runaway - Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi)

Richie Sambora is the Greatest Guitarist... Everybody knows that and there's no Second thought's about it...

But how on Earth could you believe that this Great Solo was in there very 1st Album: Bon Jovi in 1983!
Friends, this was his very 1st Guitar Solo! - Nirmal1991USA

2 Achilles Last Stand - Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)

One of the best guitar solos. Probably one of the best zeppelin songs.

The song should be more well known even though it does last 10:19 - Greenday

3 Godfather Theme - Slash V 1 Comment
4 Bat Country - Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold)

Not after life but really good more underrated the after life both are legendary

The solo's AWESOME. Not as good as other A7X, but still, it's good. - A7X_Synyster_

5 Nosferatu - Coroner (Tommy Baron)
6 Whole Lotta Rosie - Angus Young (AC/DC)

I always Angus was a little overated until I heard this solo! - rock2metal

If you don't think this song is great, then you are absolutely crazy.

7 A Light In the Black - Ritchie Blackmore
8 Gemini - Brian Kahanek

Known him for years... The world deserves to see and hear a lot more of him. He is not only a very special player but a great friend and overall human being as well.

The worlds most underrated guitar player as well... Its only a matter of time until he gets the recognition he deserves.

The Contenders

11 Serpent Moves - Coroner (Tommy Baron)
12 Let It Be - George Harrison (The Beatles)

Harrison's solo on the single version is just okay, but the solo on the album is killer, and it's a shame that the single version is the one that gets the most airplay.

The original recorded version, not the butchered NAKED version. That is one the best solos hardly anyone talks about. Simple and clean.

True. It was his best solo for me. But this solo doesn't get much appreciations. - zxm

13 Under a Glass Moon - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)

Petrucci lets all these other solos be "good".
On the first day God created John Petrucci and said "this is effin awesome!" - fireinside96

John Petrucci is the most advanced guitarist of this age to say the least - DreamTheater

Not only is it beautiful but it showcases a lot of technical skills

14 Rising Force - Yngwie Malmsteen
15 Altitudes - Jason Becker

If eruption could be a solo then why the hell this can't be a solo. - zxm

16 Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom (Alexi Laiho)
17 Soothsayer - Buckethead

Time Just Flies When You Listen To This Song, It Doesn't Even Feel Like Nine Minutes. - Neosantana

He played this at his concert I went to... Its like the greatest! - ch153

18 Shake a Leg - Angus Young (AC/DC)

great song, one of my favorites

19 Kill the King - Rainbow (Ritchie Blackmore)
20 Alison Hell - Annihilator (Jeff Waters)
