Top Ten Synyster Gates Guitar SolosStix1643
The Top Ten
In the documentary about the making of this album, the professional orchestra musicians who recorded the string parts said that they were there in the studio when Syn recorded this, and they all turned around and thought what, one of them even said they didn't know the guitar could be played like that. That right there says all you need to know about this solo.
Epic solo and one of the greatest solos of all time... The solo is very difficult to play... Wicked end solo is also great..
Just learned how to play this and it is pretty challenging with the sweeps. It sounds so epic and intense, I just love this solo. Scream and bat country are also great though, Syn is just a great guitar player in general.
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!10 Comments
Almost every a7x song his it's own unique guitar track and solo, but this song just takes the cake for me. I still get chills hearing the part when the drum and bass stop and give you a chance to absorb how great of a guitarist synyster gates is
Quite unorthodox but sounds great, a unique solo.
Made an amazing experience godly
It is awesome1 Comment
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.
Listen to it then you will understand.
Just wow, Gates has done some incredible solos but this one really takes the cake.
Such a powerful amazing solo, a perfect way to end a song.
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!
Come on bros. Second heartbeat 4th seriously?!2 Comments
If Synyster Gates isn't playing this solo on my coffin, I'm not dying.
I love syn playing solo on the coffin too. Just MAJESTIC
This solo is excellent!
Synister I'm coming for you.
I'm fan of yours. I'm coming to battle U.
I feel like this is the fast solo by Syn... Much faster than Afterlife
The solo is awesome... No doubt
This song is my favourite songs ever
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
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.
Listen to the acoustic ending to that song.
The acoustic solo was actually his father's solo but very great
Goes real smooth with Syn Gates on the guitar shredding it up.
It has crazy sweeps
Fits the song well
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.
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!
Surely the best Syn's solo ever!
Syn proved speed isn't everythimg and there is more to it
@wesome creative solo by Syn & some parts by Zacky...
What!?... The solo deserves to be on the top 10 list
The solo in the end of song is very georgeous. It should be top 5
Every chorus, there is a short solo and the main solo is awesome
The best solo ever
One of Syn's best solos!
Should be in the top 5!
Hail to the king has a difficult solo but is amazing
Simple but difficult to play. Kedewasaannya dalam solo guitar di tunjukkan di sini.
Hail to the king menjadi solo pavoritku setelah afterlife dan seize the day
How is this not in the top ten?! It's so underrated and fast!
Come on! The entire song is an epic guitar solo
I think it should at number 1
The best and larger solo1 Comment
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.
The second solo beats every other solo but its very short
The solo is incredible. How is this so low.
In my opinion it is in the top 10
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.
All solos in this song are incredible!
The guitar solo brings back memories from Call of Duty bo2
Great sol adds to the hellish felling to create atmosphere.
Coming home off the new album best gates solo
The best solo
Why is this not #1
SERIOUSLY PEOPLE LISTEN TO THIS
Such an underestimated and beautiful solo. Always touches deep into my heart
The guitar work in this song is mind-blowing.
Even though the whole song is a solo and not an official song, what he played at that guitar center on that day shall never be forgotten.
Only solo that reflects all the techniques that SYN knows. And it had a great melody too...
Its not an official A7X, but it's a must listen...YouTube it
