Top Ten Synyster Gates Guitar SolosStix1643
The Top Ten
Epic solo and one of the greatest solos of all time... The solo is very difficult to play... Wicked end solo is also great..
Afterlife solo is one of the greatest solos in history and its so epic because its super melodic and I think no one could do that kind of solo. Syn is the best!
Afterlife is my favorite a7x song and synyster gates tore this song up!
I love him he is going down in history! He is being compared to Clapton and Jimmy page!
The best solo I have ever heard so much skill needed to play this and he make's it look like pissV 7 Comments
I don't have a favorite solo by him I like to end the rapture burn it down scream afterlife welcome to the family god hates us almost easy sidewinder beast in the harlot critical acclaim so far away bat country every solo there all good
It's like Syns left hand has eight fingers or something in this solo. Full of passion and sweep!
The best of the best! Awesome and cool solo.V 1 Comment
Quite unorthodox but sounds great, a unique solo.
Made an amazing experience godlyV 2 Comments
This solo is excellent!
Synister I'm coming for you.
I'm fan of yours. I'm coming to battle U.
I love Syn playing the solo on the coffin. ^-^
I feel like this is the fast solo by Syn... Much faster than AfterlifeV 2 Comments
The whole song is great and overlooked by many, it's one of those songs that really grows on you the more you listen to it. At first I usually skipped straight to the acoustic solo at the end but now having grown on me I listen to the song regularly from start to finish.
The acoustic solo was actually his father's solo but very greatV 1 Comment
Goes real smooth with Syn Gates on the guitar shredding it up.
Even Syn admitted he didn't know how he would play this live, since the entire solo is picked, and actually not sweeped at all.V 2 Comments
Most people didn't listen to Avenged in their Waking the Fallen days so this solo is easy to miss, despite it being one of his best solos, maybe not #1 but maybe in the top #5 and DEFINITELY in the top #10
I love the end solo! Kinda reminds me of the end solo of november rain by Guns N' Roses!
@wesome creative solo by Syn & some parts by Zacky...
Probably the best of all Avenged Sevenfold solos just because of how much the entire song means to them. That final solo was the best way to round the song off and make it the ultimate tribute to The Rev. R.I. P
This is probably his best solo on City of Evil, better than MIA in my opinion. Fits the song really well and is fast yet melodic.
Wow how is this solo rated so lowly?! It's by far one of his best solos! Definitely the best solo on City of Evil! So melodic.
Just wow, Gates has done some incredible solos but this one really takes the cake.
Listen to it then you will understand.
Every chorus, there is a short solo and the main solo is awesomeV 3 Comments
What!?... The solo deserves to be on the top 10 list
How is this not in the top ten?! It's so underrated and fast!
Come on! The entire song is an epic guitar soloV 3 Comments
WHAT?!?! Why isn't this at the top? As far as feeling goes, this is the most emotional solo he has ever written. I really don't know why it isn't up at the top.V 1 Comment
This solo is so melodic and all over the place it's almost goofy. One of his best by far.
Placed at the start of the song which I think is a good move, really hits you in the face and has a nice rhythm to it. Probably not as well 'thought out' as his more recent solos but still good sounding nevertheless.
Hail to the king has a difficult solo but is amazingV 1 Comment
