Most Underrated Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Unforgiven III - Kirk Hammet (Metallica)

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

22 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 most underrated? LOL. NOT underrated at all.
Do you know the meaning of underrated? If not, go and give a listen to Nosferatu by Coroner. Oh, you never heard of this band and their guitarist Tommy Baron? Exactly. This is my point. Now, THIS solo is underrated. - Metal_Treasure

23 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 :(

24 Stranger in this Town - Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi)
25 The Best of Times - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)
26 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

27 Bohemian Rhapsody - Brian May

Most underrated musician ever - gemcloben

Underrated? More like overrated.

28 Brothers in Arms - Mark Knopfler

YouTube Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits ft. Eric Clapton (Live in Nelson Mandela B'day celebration Concert 1988) & Give a Listen to Mark's Ending Solo! - Nirmal1991USA

29 Killers - Dave Murray (Iron Maiden) V 1 Comment
30 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Eric Clapton V 1 Comment
31 Live Forever - Noel Gallagher (Oasis)

Best guitar solo of all time

32 Burn - Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple)

The Solo is incredible, powerful and brilliant. Deserve way more credit and attention

It is a fantastic solo for all that loves guitar. A gem!

33 A Light In the Black - Rainbow
34 Sappy - Kurt Cobain (Nirvana)

Hardly anyone has heard of this. - saketmohan06

35 Children of the Damned - Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden)

An underrated tapping solo from Iron Maiden. Played by Adrian Smith. - zxm

36 Love Phantom - Tak Matsumoto (B'z)
37 Fly to the Rainbow - Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions)

Very confusing solo whether there is a solo or not. But he used different notes. Actually because of his dive bombs the notes got hidden. - zxm

38 Citizen Erased - Matt Bellamy (Muse)
39 The Four Horsemen - Kirk Hammett (Metallica)
40 Ball and Biscuit - Jack White (The White Stripes)

Almost wet my pants first time I heard it
