2 Sweet Child 'O Mine

Combine Slash, a les paul, soul, and a pedal.
You've got a masterpiece

I love metal and hardly ever listen to GNR but slash is my favorite guitarists and I believe this riff is the best

This solo is melodious, fast, soulful, rhythmic, classic... man.. just too good m/

"Even though Slash personally hates this song, I absolutely believe that his guitar solo is among the greatest guitar solos ever played. He recorded this guitar solo in one take and it couldn't have been any better had he played a thousand more times."

3 Estranged

Best solo by any man alive. Better than Vaughan or Santana or even Ol' Bieber.

An awesome piece of music with 4 sweet solos from SLASH

The most feeling he ever felt in 30 seconds of electric liquid silk cycling away into the universe man

The last solo is very heavily underrated. It's beautiful. - benhos

6 Godfather Theme Solo

One of the best solos by slash

Not the most famous but damn this solo is so awesome! Just hear to the made in stoke version it's the best solo ever!

Lets face it, this is the best solo by slash

This is way better than sweet child o mine. He uses more techniques than any other solo

7 Paradise City

One of the greatest all time songs ever
plus an wicked ending solo

8 Knockin' On Heaven's Door

Best song ever. I get goosebumps every time I hear the song!

Awesome heart put into this sing and two great solos.

How the hell could this be No.9? It's so awesome!

This is just perfect

Pd: i’d vote to nightrain but the solo was played by izzy stradlin, huns, if you don't konw about it don't comment it!

9 Anastasia

One of his best songs. I'd put it up there with slither, sweet child, don't cry, fall to pieces and November rain. The live 2013 version on yt will blow your mind.


10 Welcome to the Jungle

Only 9? come on guys

An awesome song With one of the catchiest riffs of all time
plus a cool slide solo

Oh my god is this on number 7 this should be on 1! - max10001

With this song I fell in love of Guns N' Roses

The Contenders

11 Rocket Queen

Probably the most under appreciated solo in all of rock and roll. Not just technically proficient, but beautiful.

best slash's outro. should be no.1 this song is the best from axl rose with slash solo. this song is very underrated its same as november rain

Awesome riff and in the top 20 best outros of all time

Best slash solo in my opinion

This is the best solo mayhem ever played. Strong, emotional, oustanding performance by Slash and Izzi Stradlin.

14 Civil War

Best song I've ever heard, will always be my favorite song and slash plays like a god in this song!

Great two solos with real lyrics
