This is a real touchy subject, man. It's just going to start a flame war.
I personally don't think any solo is the best.
I plays guitars.

Depends. For me it switches around alot but right now the last 2 minutes of Selkies by Between the Buried and Me is pretty freaking amazing.

Rolling Stone compiled their own opinionated list, so use that for starters?

Pssh... A mainstream magazine can never be right in the eyes of a predominantly metal community.....

Search bar solo?

But seriously there is no 'best guitar solo' you can't judge all solo's and be like oh yeah that one's the best cos of so and so. Every 'great' solo is awesome for different reasons. And you have to consider styles. Metal, shred, blues, jazz or more Vai and Satch stuff like..so many.

Some could be considered better in terms of theory and use of scales incorpertated(sp?) into the solo and have incredible technical skill where as some just make you want to cry through feel and emotion etc or even both. Maybe those can be ranked as some of the best solo's but even then you can't say X solo will always be better than Y solo.

Some of my favourtie solo's come from Rhoads, Vai, Adam Jones etc. All special to me for different reasons.
Gear:
Epiphone SG
H&K 100watt Stack
Ibanez Practice Amp
Takamine Acoustic.


TOOL

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

I love the no more tears solo, it's not that hard but it sounds so amazing on the album
Quote by GeneralGrim
So we had a music battle, copying what each other did and upping the ante and whatnot. After awhile of going nowhere, I said to the pianist "let's see you do this, asshole" played a single note... and bent it up a step. And left.
