100 Greatest Guitar Solos Quiz - By TredWel - Sporcle

I suppose that, then, is what should come to mind first when looking at the 100 greatest guitar solos. Even if you’re not a fan of the song… is it undeniably great? I may not be the biggest Van Halen fan ever, but even I can recognize that Eddie Van Halen’s “Explosion” belongs on the list. As do probably half a dozen other solols he churned out over the years.

Is there anything more difficult than figuring out the 100 greatest guitar solos of all time? The guitar has been the definitive instrument of rock and roll for more than 50 years, with virtuosos of different eras, differrent styles and different countries all leaving their mark on the guitar landscape.

Personally, I thought "Maggot Brain" should have been much higher up on the list. There a number of tunes above it that I've never even heard of! I will humbly admit that I thought the late George Clinton had done the solo on that and not Eddit Hazel, but either way, when I was growing up, it was one of the tunes that all guitar players strived to learn along with Eruption.

While there are certainly many tunes on that list that I do agree with...there a few there that while I will admist that I like, I'm not sure classify as "top 100" (i.e. Aqualung....extrordinary tune, but not sure if it's really one of the best guitar solos of all time). With that said, one that didn't seem to make it onto the list was Manfred Mann's version "Blinded By The Light" (off Roaring Silence). While I'm not sure who did the solo, to me it has always been simply one of the best composed solos of all time and absolutly mind blowing! NOt because it has 127,857 notes per measure, but simply because it was so well composed and performed and contained soooo much feeling...very intense indeed!

Bright Blessings,
Jim
