Top 10 Saddest Guitar Solos
The Top Ten
Almost same explanation as high hopes - zxm
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
By far #1 Must Listen to!
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. - Metal_Treasure
This solo is soulful... The best...
Well jeff beck is underrated and so his works - zxm
One of the saddest songs,and so is it's solo - zxm
It's a blues song,and usually blues songs are sad - zxm
The backing riff might sound joyful but the solo is very very sad - zxm
Whenever I listen this solo I feel like I am in a lonely place - zxm
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. - Metal_Treasure
The whole song makes you feel sad - zxm
Yas and jezz
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 - zxm
Closest songs to soldier of fortune - zxm
The second solo may not be sad as first one that's why I wrote 1st solo with the song. - zxm
About Portnoy's father's death
I mostly cry and headbang at the sametime when the final solo comes and especially when james sings the final chorus
How is this not #1? How?
Definitely number 1.
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.
I like this one, it's deep and played with skill. RIP Dimebag Darrell
Ah, no. The solo was creepy and boring. The outro was saddening. Which wasn't a solo. - zxm
It's not sad as other songs in the list.that's why I added it in last - zxm
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.
