Greatest Rock Guitar Solos of the 21st Centurypetrucci75hammet
The Top Ten
This song deserves to be here.
.. Synyster is undoubtedly the greatest guitarist of 21st century
My Favorite band Avenged Sevenfold!
They're the real music
Absolutely fantastic solo! MYLES KENNEDY AND MARK TREMONTI DESERVE MUCH MORE CREDIT FOR THIS MASTERPIECE!
Amazing solo, where it builds up into an insane heavy section - not to mention this is one of the greatest modern epics in rock music, certainly Alter Bridge's magnum opus! - petrucci75hammet
Utter genius. Enough said.
One of the best songs in the 21st century and with the best solo guitarist in the decade and top 20 of all time. People all those who says that avenger sevenfold or linkin park is better band than alter bridge are wrong all because of their fans and fame doesn't mean that they are better be realistic listen to the songs and albums they had. Don' t be silly People just listen their vocalist and solo guitarist are unbelieveable trust me I won't let you down5 Comments
Tallica is timeless... Gates being first is a joke I mean he's good but...
awesome melody with a kick-ass solo and pro lyrics is what makes this song great.
Two amazing solos - fast and technical. - Metal_Treasure
A very creative and epic solo from Jørn Viggo Lofstad, the extremely talented guitarist from an equally talented and underrated band! - petrucci75hammet
Really a heart touching solo...
Simple, but gorgeous and timeless.
This is without question the greatest guitar solo in the entire genre of Melodic Death Metal, a genre known for its combination of melodic and technical guitar work. The fact that it blows every other song out of the water is a testament to the masterpiece that is Winter Madness.
I really don't get why synyster gates is at the top of every list. His solos may sound cool to someone who doesn't really play guitar, but they're really nothing special. Jari Maenpa on the other hand is a guitar wizard...
It's the fastest solo I've ever heard!
Great stuff, sounding arhythmic the first time, ofttimes revolting against the simple four-four time almost all bands subdue themselves to - however, that's just an additional indicator for its unconventional beauty. definitely something different!
Awesome twin lead guitars, harmonies. Fast, long and melodic solo. - Metal_Treasure
All I can say is, GROOVY! - petrucci75hammet
3 solos: 2 short ones in the intro and one regular later (3 solos is pretty unusual and unique). Overall, amazing guitar work - Jeff Waters never disappoints. - Metal_Treasure
Really fast, technical and melodic solo. How fast? - imagine your plane is taking off!
The solo is also brilliantly paired with the drums for a maximum effect. This drummer is such a gem - his musicality and skills are stunning (Randy Black). - Metal_Treasure
This should be under a7x dream theater is super underrated because their long songs this song has a long amazing solo
Tom Morello Solo, enough Said
Unbelievable! The solo is the best guitar piece I've heard in recent years. I think slash's new material is quite unknown and underrated, it is easily equal in greatness to Guns n' Roses and every classic/hard rock fan should give a listen. For the song anastasia, just give the song 1 minute, and if you're a guitarist yourself I can guarantee you'll want to learn it after one minute of the song! Iii: )'
In this song slash have good solo
Pretty fast, long and absulutely gorgeous solo by a new speed metal band, formed in 2006. - Metal_Treasure
How is this not top ten? It's INCREDIBLE. Full of energy, this is one of the classic Muse songs that just feature one of the best arpeggiated guitar solos EVER, just simply fantastic, could listen to this forever
It has the best riff
Yeah, if you like tasteless garbage
Intro solo is so awesome.
It's fast, technical and moody.
Best Megadeth solo since "Tornado Of Souls".
I think that is best guitar solo in 21 st century.
But in my opinion Disturbed's "Stricken" is also Great.
Best band I've heard in a long time
In this song, you can hear brad's solo is the best
This should be the best
