Favorite Guitar Solos

Ranked by song title, one per artist.
1Rush
Signals


"The Analog Kid" by Alex Lifeson

You could argue that any Alex Lifeson solo is better and make a convincing argument, but whenever I think of Lifeson's playing, my brain immediately goes to "The Analog Kid"
2Immolation
Here in After


"Christ's Cage" by Robert Vigna

For as vicious as Immolation can get, the solo to "Christ Cage" sounds almost scared. Impressively encapsulates the emotional elements of the band without saying a word.
3Death
Human


"Cosmic Sea" by Paul Masvidal and Chuck Schuldiner

Two of the greatest metal guitarists trying to out-shred each other, what more could you ask for?
4Molly Hatchet
Flirtin' With Disaster


"Flirtin' With Disaster" by Dave Hlubek

Takes me back to Rock Band 1. How could you not move your body during the outro?
5Rollins Band
Weight


"Fool" by Chris Haskett

This song is just Haskett having the time of his life and it absolutely rips.
6Lynyrd Skynyrd
Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd


"Free Bird" by Allen Collins

The infamous
7Pantera
The Great Southern Trendkill


"The Great Southern Trendkill" by Dimebag Darrell

This song is like 1/2 guitar solo and it rules. Hell of a showcase for Dimebag's skills.
8Helmet
Meantime


"He Feels Bad" by Page Hamilton

Hamilton might be my favorite guitar soloist, and this might be my favorite guitar solo of all time. There's just something so alien about his guitar solos that just makes your spine tingle.
9King Crimson
Discipline


"Indiscipline" by Adrian Belew and Robert Fripp

Specifically this 1982 performance. Excellent showcase of both guitarist's skills. Fripp's solo being more calculated, while Belew is more interested in making his guitar sound nothing like a guitar.

10Dream Theater
Awake


"Lie" by John Petrucci

DT's most straightforward banger. How did this not land on every rock station in 1994?
11Primus
Pork Soda


"Mr. Krinkle" by Larry LaLonde

This is second only to "He Feels Bad", hell on some days it might be my favorite solo. LaLonde's solos are so expressive while still being incredibly atonal.
12Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast


"The Number of the Beast" by Dave Murray and Adrian Smith

Solos worthy of satan themself.
13Steely Dan
Aja


"Peg" by Jay Graydon

So perfect it feels spontaneous.
14Tears for Fears
Songs from the Big Chair


"Shout" by Roland Orzabal

Just when you thought this song couldn't sound any bigger, Orzabal's solo comes in to make it soar.
15Soundgarden
Badmotorfinger


"Slaves and Bulldozers" by Kim Thayil

Shout out to Soundgarden and Primus for bringing dissonant, heavy music to the mainstream. I definitely think this type of atonal playing is what helped me get into extreme metal bands.
16Alice in Chains
Alice in Chains


"Sludge Factory" by Jerry Cantrell

Cantrell playing blues over Layne Staley's incoherent rambling. Of all the solos on here, I find this one to be the most unnerving.
17Tool
Ænima


"Third Eye" by Adam Jones

It's not often when Jones comes in with a guitar solo, but when he does it's an absolute monster. The added delay on the guitar makes this his most Fripp-ian performance.
18Botch
We Are the Romans


"Transitions from Persona to Object" by Dave Knudson
