Top 10 Guitar Solos with the Most Feeling

Which guitarist created a solo that has so much emotion and feeling in their playing?
The Top Ten
1 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

I agree 100% that this song should be #1. David Gilmour is just awesome. His guitar playing oozes soul. His solo projects are also fantastic if you want some good guitar playing.

Amazing solo! I'm trying to play this solo. Virtually, it's not difficult, but the techniques David employs make the difference...

Absolutely amazing. Gives me chills every time. Reminds me of good times and always brings me tears.

2 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Made me cry. So sensational. This is one of the best solos that I had ever heard.

The best thing about this solo is that it touches you deep inside. It makes you feel like never before.

This is a ridiculous solo. If you haven't heard it, you definitely need to. This is definitely my favorite solo of all time, regardless of what others say.

This song and solo should be number 1. When Slash gets out of the church, it is just so amazing.

3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

It is a thing of beauty, and no matter how biased you are, you have to agree that this is the greatest and most emotionally inclined solo of all time.

4 Hotel California - The Eagles
5 Stranger In This Town - Richie Sambora
6 One - Metallica

This is perhaps the greatest guitar solo ever written. It starts with Mr. Hetfield's rhythm and then Mr. Hammett's solo. The beautiful solo begins with some serious feelings (however, not as much as in Welcome Home) and then continues with beautiful imaginations.

Suddenly, around 1:25, the mood of the song swings and it is full of happy feelings. That part was just mind-blowing. I felt like I was flying in the air. Definitely a heart-touching solo.

7 Time - Pink Floyd
8 Story of the Blues - Gary Moore

The King of the strings, in my opinion. Gary could play any style on guitar. His playing was so emotional on songs like Still Got The Blues and Empty Rooms, especially his live versions.

Gary should be number one as he is still very underrated. 1952 - 2011, RIP.

9 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

This song should be at least in the Top 5 of this list..!

10 Fade to Black - Metallica

This should be second to only Stairway to Heaven. How the heck did Eruption make this list?!

I heard it, and for me, it is very emotional. This along with Hotel California.

Thank god Kirk made a memorable solo.

The Contenders
11 High Hopes - Pink Floyd

At #39?! Are you kidding me?! This is Pink Floyd's second-best guitar solo. So much feeling and nostalgia.

12 Child In Time - Deep Purple
13 Europa - Santana
14 Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow

Not even close to Ritchie's best, but it's so smooth and relaxing.

15 Dry County - Bon Jovi

Richie Sambora's longest guitar solo!

Friends, there are four guitar solos in this 10-minute masterpiece. You have to give this epic a listen! You can always thank me later after you've become ecstatic with what I'll call an eargasm.

16 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

Exceptional song, fantastic solo.

17 Glasgow Kiss - John Petrucci
18 Padmasana - Buckethead
19 Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi
20 Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - Deep Purple
21 Hey You - Pink Floyd
22 Always With Me, Always With You - Joe Satriani
23 Serenade - Versailles
24 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N Roses

Slash has done a great masterpiece. It's a solo full of feeling!

25 White Summer / Black Mountain Side - Led Zeppelin
