The Mystery at No.1

This months Guitarist Magazine polled the best guitar solos ever. Which is impossible to get right, it's always dangerous to ask a bunch of guitarists what the best solo is. However they did it as properly as possible and once they took the top twenty and put them up to another vote to get the final chart.

You'll know most of the list, we know all of them, except for the solo track at no.1.

The Top 20 Best Guitar Solos Ever Are:

1. Blackbird - Alter Bridge (Mark Tremonti & Myles Kennedy)
2. Eruption - Van Halen (Eddie Van Halen)
3. Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses (Slash)
4. November Rain - Guns N' Roses (Slash)
5. Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd (Pulse: Live) (David Gilmour)
6. Hollow Years - Dream Theater (Live at Budokan) (John Petrucci)
7. Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater (John Petrucci)
8. Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page)
9. Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd (Gary Rossington & Allen Collins)
10. Tornado of Souls - Megadeth (Marty Friedman)
11. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix
12. For the Love of God - Steve Vai
13. All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
14. Hotel California - Eagles (Joe Walsh & Don Felder)
15. Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits (Mark Knopfler)
16. Since I've Been Loving You So Long - Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page)
17. Still Got the Blues For You - Gary Moore
18. Beat It - Michael Jackson (Eddie Van Halen)
19. Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers (James Dean Bradfield)
20. Aqualung - Jethro Tull (Martin Barre)

So here is the band in at the no.1 spot. Make of it what you will but officially it's the most important piece of solo guitar playing ever as far as Guitarist Magazine readers are concerned. I only wish I could agree.
