Top 10 Songs with the Saddest Guitar Solos
The Top Ten
This song is about ebing alone and being drugged. The solo has a desperate and lonley feel to it. High Hopes on the other hand to me is very happy
Almost same explanation as high hopes
The 1st solo (Glenn Tipton) - especially the last several notes of this solo break my heart and twist my soul. The song is about suicide.
This solo is soulful... The best...
By far #1 Must Listen to!
Well jeff beck is underrated and so his works
One of the saddest songs,and so is it's solo
It's a blues song,and usually blues songs are sad
The backing riff might sound joyful but the solo is very very sad
Whenever I listen this solo I feel like I am in a lonely place
This is an instrumental but it has 2 distinct solos that are very sad. The entire piece is very sad and I feel the existential loneliness all the time.
The whole song makes you feel sad
Well some might not agree with me about this song.but I though this solo needs more attention.it feels like sad.well not like comfortably numb or high hopes but pretty sad to me
Closest songs to soldier of fortune
The second solo may not be sad as first one that's why I wrote 1st solo with the song.
About Portnoy's father's death
Definitely number 1.
How is this not #1? How?
I mostly cry and headbang at the sametime when the final solo comes and especially when james sings the final chorus
Who wouldn't want a ghost playing that solo on your coffin as you descend into your eternal slumber.
Ever heard a guitar weep? Cry out all the pain of a lost band member?
This is the most emotional instrumental solo I've ever heard!
Whole song is quite sad really.
It's not sad as other songs in the list.that's why I added it in last
Ah, no. The solo was creepy and boring. The outro was saddening. Which wasn't a solo.
I like this one, it's deep and played with skill. RIP Dimebag Darrell
Absolutely an awesome solo by McGuinn and his 12-string, proving that solos don't have to be about speed and shredding. More than sad; its plaintive, sweet, and nostalgic. A classic for the ages.

I'm younger than that now"
