Darrell Lance Abbott, also known as "Diamond Darrell" and "Dimebag Darrell", was the guitarist of the greatest groove metal band ever, Pantera. In 2003, Pantera went to hiatus. He and his brother formed Damageplan. On December 8, 2004; he was shot by Nathan Galen on-stage while performing with Damageplan.

What are his best guitar solos?
The Top Ten
1 Floods

It doesn't even deserve to be in top 5. Dime has better solos than this. This solo is mediocre. Its not my opinion, its actually very bad. Weird licks. Four tapping notes, no timing for proper bending, weird vibratos. The outro was great. But it wasn't any solo.

Sounds like zxm had a problem pulling this one off. Keep chugging buddy, you'll get it. Unorthodox style is what makes Dimebag a legend.

This is indescribable, so dense feelings, but I rather prefer Hard lines And Sunken Cheeks And this second, I only wanted this place to telling about Hard lines solo

2 Cemetery Gates

Beautiful guitar Solo with some really really tasteful shredding

It was awesome!

3 Domination

A pure masterpiece. Hell his fingers were practically on fire after that blistering solo, one of my favorite Dimebag solos

This solo isn't human.

4 The Sleep

This easily deserves either number 1 or 2 behind only maybe Floods or Sunken Cheeks. Actually shameful it's only number 4. This is peak Dimebag greatness on display, so much soul in those screeching bends and then builds up into a monster shredding finish. Top tier in my opinion.

It combines elements and techniques of many different scopes, all of which Dimebag dominated. Insanely good, perfect for the song's chord progression. Chilling. R.I.P, Dimebag, thank you for your legacy.

This is just such a good solo, you think it's over with the short clean breakdown, and then the screeches come back in, just so much emotion and technique and passion

5 Walk

Pure musical genius

6 Cowboys from Hell

This should be way higher!

7 10's

Such a emotional solo. I love how it starts off all sad ang gloomy, but it brightens up more as the solo goes on. That mixed with all the tasty licks put in there, this has to be one of dime's best solos. (R.I.P Dimebag)

One of my favourite solos. Other notable mentions: Mouth For War, The Sleep (which is already 2nd place - I don't need to vote for that), Domination...

8 Revolution Is My Name
9 We'll Meet Again

Number 1 no dispute

10 Message in Blood
The Contenders
11 This Love
12 Psycho Holiday

This list is missing the greatest solos! Psycho Holiday and Rejection are by far the top 2 solos where Dimebag shows his unique an unmatched skills.

13 Drag the Waters
14 The Great Southern Trendkill

Why isn't this higher. It's a kickass solo with all the bends and squels to make your thighs wet.

This should be in the top 10 at least. Its got the all tasty blues licks you could ever want. along with some unexpected slide work by dime. Overall an amazing solo. Needs to be higher.

15 A New Level
16 Throes of Rejection

Throes of Rejection is just a very underrated song in general. But the solo makes it even more underrated. Like, how could you not like that song after that solo. Its got some crazy fast licks in there, but they aren't to much either. Amazing solo.

VERY underrated solo, one of Dime's hardest solos to pull and has very cool bends and legato runs.

Very difficult solo and really cool.

17 Hard Lines And Sunken Cheeks
18 Mouth for War
19 I'm Broken
20 5 Minutes Alone
21 Avoid the Light
22 All Over Tonight

From their second album, Projects in the Jungle, the first track. He kills it here.

23 D*G*T*T*M
24 Inside Out
25 In Over My Head

Very good solo
