Top 10 Songs with the Best Dueling Guitar SoloA 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 Songs with the Best Dueling Guitar Solo
There are between 4 and 13 solos, depending on how you count them, and some of them are dueling - Metal_Treasure
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_Treasure
That song is awesome! - PhoenixAura81
Duels between Jeff Waters (Annihilator) and Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom) as a guest musician. Crazy fast and technical stuff. - Metal_Treasure
An incredible solo of 2012. It's 1 minute long, it's fast as hell yet with melodic harmonies. - Metal_Treasure
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_Treasure
I LOVE THIS ONE! The solo is pretty awesome, but I didn't know it was a dueling one. - PhoenixAura81
Eric Clapton [God] is dueling Duane Allman [Skydog] at the same time. Classic.
Hendrix on lead dueling Dave Mason on acoustic. Dave Mason said later that Hendrix really was "that good".
