Top 100 Guitar Solos Of All Time: Unbiased This Time?
About.com recently reported on a Guitar World Magazine readers poll. The poll was to determine the greatest guitar solos of all time, and they listed the top 100 solos. While it's bound to spawn some controversy, it certainly hits closer to the mark than most of the recently published "best guitarist" polls by various magazines and online publications. With a top 10 that includes "Eruption" (Eddie Van Halen), "Crazy Train" (Randy Rhoads), and "All Along The Watchtower" (Jimi Hendrix), it's obvious the poll has a rock music bias, but there is no disputing the impact that these artists have had on popular music. Jimi Herdix's songs listed three times in just a top 20. Having said this, a dispute over best guitarist of all time can be ended. What follows is the list of top 20 solos, listed with the guitarist who played the solo, the band who released the album, and a link to the tab. Top 100 Guitar Solos Of All Time List: 01. Stairway to Heaven by Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) (tab) 02. Eruption by Eddie Van Halen (Van Halen) (tab) 03. Freebird by Collins/Rossington (Lynyrd Skynyrd) (tab) 04. Comfortably Numb by David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) (tab) 05. All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix (tab) 06. November Rain by Slash (Guns N' Roses) (tab) 07. One by Kirk Hammett (Metallica) (tab) 08.
