Music-News.com 20 Greatest Guitar Solos

Recommended Posts


Personally I can't stand that song (most of you know that), so I don't care about its placement, although I'm sure most of you here will bitch about it, but the most egregious thing on this list is the song that came in at #1. Blackbird, not by The Beatles but by Alter Bridge, who were essentially Creed cast-offs. I don't know how the hell they got voted higher than David Gilmour, Joe Walsh, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler or Jimmy Page, but I'm sure it's a funny story.

The final list (18 of 20 are by veteran artists):

1.Blackbird - Alter Bridge (Mark Tremonti & Myles Kennedy)

2.Eruption - Van Halen (Eddie Van Halen)

3.Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses (Slash)

4.November Rain - Guns N' Roses (Slash)

5.Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd (Pulse: Live) (David Gilmour)

6.Hollow Years - Dream Theater (Live at Budokan) (John Petrucci)

7.Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater (John Petrucci)

8.Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page)

9.Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd (Gary Rossington & Allen Collins)

10.Tornado of Souls - Megadeth (Marty Friedman)

11.Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix

12.For the Love of God - Steve Vai

13.All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix

14.Hotel California - Eagles (Joe Walsh & Don Felder)

15.Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits (Mark Knopfler)

16.Since I've Been Loving You So Long - Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page)

17.Still Got the Blues For You - Gary Moore

18.Beat It - Michael Jackson (Eddie Van Halen)

19.Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers (James Dean Bradfield)

20.Aqualung - Jethro Tull (Martin Barre)
