Most Beautiful Guitar Solos

The Top Ten
1 Comfortably Numb (2nd solo) - Pink Floyd

Simply beautiful, not just super fast strings of notes (eruption), repeated licks (freebird) or empty playing. This solo is filled with such emotion translated beautifully by one of the best guitarists in my opinion.

Maybe the best guitar solo ever. Everything is perfect. Sound, timing and pure emotion. This one will never get old.

My absolute favourite of all time. I saw this in concert and it just blew me away!

A comepletely amazing solo, probably the best ever. Actually, I just remembered free bird...

2 Give In to Me - Michael Jackson
3 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses
4 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Far better than all other songs on this list (Comfortably Numb being #2). 3rd greatest next to Eruption and November Rain

This song takes you to heaven.

5 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
6 Don't Cry - Guns N' Roses

Sad song especially slash's solo. The intro is the best too. One of the best guitar solo of rock and metal.. Should be in top 3

7 Beyond The Realms Of Death - Judas Priest
8 Ordinary World - Duran Duran

I guess the most underrated guitar solo ever... It actually makes the song better each time you hear it... I guess many of us who know the song hear this song just for the guitar solo

A great solo by one of the most underrated rock band. I agree that this guitar solos is way too underrated and I bet it gives the essence two this song.. Yes truely a great guitar solo

A great song by a not so famous band... I remember this song back then and I used 2 listen to it all day long

The solo is make me cry

9 One - Metallica

The solos in the middle of the song are great!

10 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
The Contenders
11 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
12 Highway Star - Deep Purple
13 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Most awesome solo, if not, the best metal solo of all time that has ever been created. Marty Friedman put all his talent into this one solo... Rate it high.

Marty Is a WIZARD and peoples don't know what does mean solo how the hell nothing else matters more than Tornado of Souls, everyone is poser nowadays

14 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Epic solo, and a great song.

15 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Jimmy page in this music plays like a real boss, and the song is insanly beatiful.

16 Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits

I love the guitar playing in this!

17 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
18 Sleeping Sun - Nightwish

Most beautiful song.

19 Floods - Pantera

All the other songs at the top are just up there due to them being mainstream. Although Pantera can be considered mainstream as well, this song isn't. The solo and outro are incredibly moving. One of the most powerful solos I have ever heard.

Don't get me wrong. But the was nothing beautiful. It was poorly made because of rapid pitch increases-decreases. But yes, the outro was beautiful. I even have a looped version of it. But the outro WAS NOT a solo. It was more likely a riff.

One and only solo to make my tears flow as movingly as the string bends, May You Rest In Peace Darrell Abbott, Forever In My Heart And Memories With You Will Always Be Loved, See You Again Brother! M/

How is this not on this list? The outro solo is one of the most beautiful, most underrated solos I've ever heard.

20 The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana
21 Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow
22 Civil War - Guns N' Roses
23 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

This should be much much higher. At leat in the top 5. That solo of brian may just before the rockn'roll begins is something you'll never forget. And the end solo is great too.

Best song ever!

24 These are the Days of Our Lives - Queen
25 Entwined by Vengeance - Vital Remains
