1 November Rain - Guns N Roses

Slash is not qualified to carry Hendrix, Clapton, Beck, Page, or Allman's luggage.

Listen to that guitar outro... it's insane. EPIC - EvilAngel

The Contenders

11 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
12 Hangar 18 - Megadeth
13 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple
14 Layla - Derek and the Dominos

Duane Allman and Eric Clapton drawn together by random chance and pure fate. Instantly brothers from the same musical dimension, and far above mere humans.

15 All Along the Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

The original studio recording had the great Jimi Hendrix on lead, with Dave Mason on acoustic counterpoint; absolutely superb.
Even the song's writer Bob Dylan acknowledged this was the definitive version of his own song.

16 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden
17 Blackbird - Alter Bridge
18 Happenings Ten Years Time Ago - The Yardbirds

Jeff Back and Jimmy Page as rivals in the same band, trying to outdo each other, resulting in never before heard guitar-based music.

Jeff BECK that is.

20 Coma White - Marilyn Manson
21 Meaning of Life - Disturbed
22 There Was a Time - Guns N' Roses
23 Burden - Opeth
24 No Leaf Clover - Metallica
25 Hellraiser - Ozzy Osbourne
26 Cemetery Gates - Pantera
27 Cruelty Without Beauty - Arch Enemy

Most of their songs have amazing guitar playing, it's epic. Probably one of the most underrated bands.
