Most Underrated Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Crossroads - Eric Clapton

Should be recognised for its' influence on rock and blues music that came after. This is the best solo the world has to offer by far.

Easily the best solo of all time but unfortunately, only a handful of people of heard Clapton's solo on Crossroads that he recorded with his band, Cream in 1968 live at The Winterland Ballroom. - guyritchi

42 Computer God - Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath)

Actually there are many underrated Iommi solos I'd like to mention, but this was the one that came to my head 1st -

This solo is one of the best ever I think its amazing Tony has plety more as well

43 Maggot Brain - Eddie Hazel

The Maggot Brain solo is just one huge head-exploding beast of a guitar solo. The effects are so revelutionary, not as noisy as Hendrix and equally as mind bending. It's so underrated.

44 XXX For You - Ichirou Cipher Takigawa (D'erlanger)
45 Stream of Consciousness - John Petrucci (Dream Theater)

The Most Difficult Solo Ever

46 Sadistic Desire - HIDE
47 Vengeance - Yngwie Malmsteen

Extremely hard solo nearly impossible on guitar just look at the tabs for the solo

48 Whispers In the Dark - Ken Steorts (Skillet)
49 Stay Away - Ken Kitamura (L'Arc~en~Ciel)
50 Soldiers of the Wasteland - Herman Li (DragonForce)
51 In Bloom - Kurt Cobain (Nirvana)
52 Time - David Gilmour
53 Firth of Fifth - Steve Hackett (Genesis)

This is a real solo played by a real guitarist. If you have a little knowledge in music you instantly understand what Steve Hackett tried and achieved to do with perfection. And first of all, this solo is a real highway of emotions. It is sad it's so underrated because this is a true masterpiece. Listen to it and you will understand what music truly means.

54 Shoot Out the Lights - Richard Thompson
55 Heaven's Drive - Ken Kitamura (L'Arc~en~Ciel)
56 Eternal Rest - Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold)

It's opening solo's the best, hyped up beginning of all time!

57 No More Tears - Zakk Wylde

This is one of my favorite guitar solos actually. Glad to see it on the list. Wylde is a bad dude..
