cant see the top 100 guitar solos

I disagree with this chart. I read in some magazine long time ago, a list of the greatest guitarrist of all times.

1. Eddy Van Halen
2. Jimmy Hendrix
3. Carlos Santana
4. Randy Rhodes(ozzy osbourne)
5. Ted Nugget

So i guess their songs should be at least in the top10 of your list.

Van Halen is a terrible guitarist.

Top solo songs, selected from Mainstream rock... the best solo's are by bands like In Flames, Children of Bodom, and maybe some Peter Frampton

are you an idiot? in flames? haha childern of bodom? have you lost your mind? and just cos one person says there top guitarests of all time you have to agree with it.. i think its a reasonable list fade to black and stairway to heaven are my favourites and stairway to heaven should top any list to be honest

Well, the list has some seriously amazing music in it. But I am shocked to find Master of Puppets at #61! And how on God's green earth is ACDC's Thunderstruck missing from the list?? Now that is certainly a crime!

Perhaps you people missed the point: this is an album, which aims not to ranks the solos, but simply list them. It is not the opinion of the author of the post, and it does not claim that 1) is greater or better the 100).

Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and rock guitar player GW Williams new - California Rock N Blues song, plus John Mayers song Gravity at the crossroads concert should all be at the top 5 positions on this list...geee whiz dude?

Anonymous said...

oh...ok your list is from 2006...sorry, I guess GW Williams new hit song , Californa Rock N Blues from May 2011 and John Mayers Gravity from 2007 won't be on this list yet....but Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix, should place all in the top 5

I like the List ! it is a Great list and lists can be changed , There are some songs that are missiing I my opinion, thats just it, its Mine. What about Allman Bros --Just Aint My cross to Bear or Kenny Wayne's-True Lies or Night Rangers Don't Tell Me you Love Me or, and the List just goes on , and that is THE POINT of a List
