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 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.

5 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_

7 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

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.

9 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

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

great song, one of my favorites

The Contenders

11 The Unforgiven III - Kirk Hammet (Metallica)

Among all of his solos I like this one. And this is underrated. - zxm

12 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

13 Since I've Been Loving You - Jimmy Page

Definitely one of the best solos among Zep fans, and the song itself is the perfect mix of clean blues and heavy rock.

Moves from high to low with a heavy rock swagger and blues mindfulness featuring complex techniues like double step bends this is a must hear gem from Led Zep III

14 Bohemian Rhapsody - Brian May

Underrated? More like overrated.

Most underrated musician ever - gemcloben

15 Eruption - Eddie Van Halen

Ha ha, underrated! This solo is usually is on top 5 of every best guitar solos ranking lists. Plus people overpraise this solo as being first tapping/shredding. - zxm

More like most overrated solo no passion and isn't that technical by today's standards

Let's just face it: eruption

16 The Best of Times - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)
17 Killers - Dave Murray (Iron Maiden) V 1 Comment
18 Stranger in this Town - Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi)
19 Lonely Day - Daron Malakian (System of a Down)

This solo is so awesome! Daron Malakian shows that he has technical prowess as well as other guitar skills with this song, making the already awesome solo even better!

An amazing solo with so much emotion in it. It makes me cry every time I listen to it. Unfortunately underrated :(
