Top 10 Songs with the Best Dueling Guitar SoloMetal_Treasure A dueling guitar solo is when two or more guitarists play one solo one after another. Solos by different players that aren't consecutive, aren't dueling. For example, if there is a verse or chorus between the solos, they aren't dueling.
Basically, dueling guitar solos happen in bands with two or more LEAD guitarists, or when there's guest lead guitarist.
I tried to rank the solos and not the songs.
The Top Ten
There are between 4 and 13 solos, depending on how you count them, and some of them are dueling - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
These guys did a great job, really impressive. Primal Fear are heavily influenced by Judas Priest, including the idea of using twin guitars, so no surprise. - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
That song is awesome! - PhoenixAura81UListen to Sample
Duels between Jeff Waters (Annihilator) and Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom) as a guest musician. Crazy fast and technical stuff. - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
An incredible solo of 2012. It's 1 minute long, it's fast as hell yet with melodic harmonies. - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
The 2nd solo (outro solo) is better and also longer so you can hear more of the duels. Thin Lizzy were one of the pioneers and they certainly influenced Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
I LOVE THIS ONE! The solo is pretty awesome, but I didn't know it was a dueling one. - PhoenixAura81UListen to Sample
Eric Clapton [God] is dueling Duane Allman [Skydog] at the same time. Classic.UListen to Sample
