    Default The 20 Best Guitar Solos of the Decade

    Spoiler Alert - Big River at number 11 (although the list fails to have a number 9 slot. Lol. )


    We asked you for your favorite guitar solos from the past decade and you replied, in your thousands. Democracy is the only way we could sift through ten years of guitar playing to identify those moments that resonated.

    Is this a vintage decade for the guitar solo? Arguably, yes. This list has a number of the usual suspects, shred veterans and rock icons whose influence on how we play guitar and how we see the instrument is immeasurable.

    But it also has a bunch of players who have made their bones in this decade, who have put their own stamp on the instrument, developing new techniques, taking the established practices of old and augmenting them, reimagining them anew, finding new tones. From any era, that’s all you can ask for.

    1. Alter Bridge – Cry of Achilles
    2. Steven Wilson – Drive Home
    3. Slash – Anastasia
    4. Tedeschi Trucks Band – Midnight in Harlem
    5. Dream Theater – S2N
    6. John Mayer – I Guess I Just Feel Like
    7. Big Wreck – Ghosts
    8. Megadeth – Dystopia
    10. Polyphia ft. Jason Richardson – Aviator
    11. Van Halen – Big River.
    12. Rush – The Garden
    13. Steve Vai – Gravity Storm
    14. Zakk Wylde – Darkest Hour
    15. Mark Knopfler – Broken Bones
    16. Plini – Handmade Cities
    17. Muse – Madness
    18. Eric Gales – Change in Me (The Rebirth)
    19. Joe Satriani – Thunder High on the Mountain
    20. Metallica – Atlas, Rise!

    You can find the full article here (just a heads up, there are way too many ads on GW.com making it a beat down trying to look at the page):

    Yeah I like the Blood and Fire solo the best off ADKOT.

    Haven't heard that Joe Satriani song, but the title made me think of Nugent's Thunder Thighs! All of Uncle Ted's solos are top 10.
