Top 10 Songs with the Best Alexi Laiho Solos

Metal_Treasure
Alexi Laiho is Children of Bodom's guitarist and vocalist. Besides Children of Bodom, he also played solos for other bands as a guest musician, and these solos count, too.

His solos are very fast, melodic and technical. I love his neo-classical style and I don't remember a solo by him that I didn't like. But like some solos more than others.

Neo-classical guitar style is very demanding and by default guitarists who play neo-classical style have skills that are much above the ones of your average guitarist.
