Top 10 Songs with the Most Beautiful Guitar Solos

The Top Ten
1 Comfortably Numb - 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 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.

9 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

10 One - Metallica

The solos in the middle of the song are great!

The Contenders
11 Highway Star - Deep Purple
12 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
13 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
14 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
15 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Epic solo, and a great song.

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.

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

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/

The outro solo rocks

20 The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana
21 Fade to Black - Metallica
22 Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow
23 High Hopes - Pink Floyd
24 Civil War - Guns N' Roses
25 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!
