Top 10 Songs Where the Guitar Sounds the Best


The Top Ten

1 Baba O'Riley - The Who
2 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
3 While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles

Throw in Clapton's technical skills to the chemistry of The Beatles when they were at their most volatile internally, and you quite naturally get genius.

4 Layla - Derek and the Dominos

No surprise here either, Eric Clapton and Duane Allman dueling it out.

5 Hotel California - The Eagles
6 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
7 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
8 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
9 We Will Rock You - Queen
10 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

The Contenders

11 That's Why You're Beautiful - Beyoncé
12 All Along the Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

The incomparable Hendrix on electric lead, dueling it out with the amazing Dave Mason on acoustic; sheer magic.

13 Beck's Bolero - The Jeff Beck Group

When Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page were in The Yardbirds together, they did not get along at all, their egos would not allow it.
Eventually Jeff Back quit, and formed his own band. That separation allowed the two guitar virtuosos to collaborate occasionally when time allowed, including on this phenomenal rock-flavored cover of a traditional classical music piece.

Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page spent several months trying to get along together in the Yardbirds, but their egos just would not allow it.
Beck finally left the group and formed his own band [with Rod Stewart as lead singer], which allowed both to relax enough, and Page sat in for the recording session of this remarkable cover of a well-known classical piece.
