No offense, but most of those are pretty standard.

Edit: Plus theres already a favorite guitar solo topic, right on the front page right now.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.


Click me, or I'll die.

Comfortably Numb should be number 1 and raining blood shouldn't be on there, its just whammy abuse.
Edit: Its Jimi not Jimmy.
GOODBYE BLUE SKY

Fail.Wet Sand by RHCP isn't on it.

Well thats because it isn't THAT good. I'm a huge chili's fan (favourite band), but wet sand does not deserve to be on the top 20 solos of all time.

Comfortable numb - pink floyd
Astronomy - Blue oyster cult

What a lame list... what did you copy this out of Rolling Stone? Freebird... honestly? That solo sucks in comparison to the greats.


EDIT: lol not even Rolling Stone, just Guitar Hero.

1. Raining Blood has a solo?
2. Bulls On Parade? Wtf? He's just messing around with the strings and killswitching.
3. There are better Allman Brothers solos than Jessica.
4. No Steve Vai? No Dream Theater?
5. Why is A7X on the list?
6. Free Bird has a really awesome solo but it's not the greatest
7. Eruption = Wankage

How could you not add Through The Fire and Flames?! Herman is the greatest guitarist of all time, that's that!

2. Bulls On Parade? Wtf? He's just messing around with the strings and killswitching.


well it's considered a great solo because it's highly original and Tom Morello has been accused of having a sample of a turntable while pretending it's a guitar in a video
#24
How in the world is bulls on parade on there?
I love RATM, but that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. It doesn't fit at all and it sounds retarded. If you were going to pick a Rage solo, do know your enemy.

Greatest solo? Does it even matter? Look at all the great music that's out there, from Hendrix to BB king to Metallica...Why can't we just listen and say; man, that's good.

Rage doesn't have any guitars. just a big pedal board


you obviously haven't listened to know your enemy, freedom, or take the power back, next time you diss a band make sure you listen to most of their songs before making assumptions about a band's guitar playing ability
