I might be attacked for this, but I thought Avenged Sevenfold's double guitar solo in Bat Country was pretty great.

Default nice.

good responses guys.

those solos (at least the ones i've heard) are amazing.

what would you say makes a solo really great?

i guess it'd really depend on the type of song...but personally it blows me away to hear shred guitar where its just insanely fast.


actually i'm really surprised noone has mentioned eruption by Van Halen.

i have the live version, and that is one nice solo.

speed, emotion ( like the solo in nothing else matters-metallica), technical difficulity, those are what makes a great solo for me.

I agree with the above: speed, emotion and technical difficulty. I'll also add the melody. If something isnt remotely catchy, I find it hard to listen to.

"Eruption" is easily the most overrated solo of all time.

Also the most influencial solo of all time, save Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner.

It was pretty f*cking groundbreaking at the time, 2 finger tapping in rock was unheard of, except maybe for Steve Hackett, and it inspired millions of kids to pick up guitar, influencing tons of metal guitarists in the process, including Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett, Dimebag Darrel, Kerry King, Randy Rhoads as well as players like Vernon Reid and Tom Morello...Which really should mean something.

And i would garantee you there would be no John Petrucci without Eddie Van Halen.

And people please, dont bash Eddie Van Halen, hes a great player, its not his fault.

Everyone knows how influential Van Halen was. But don't be naive in thinking that someone influential can't be overrated, especially when talking about a single piece.

Wait a second...you said also. I'm glad we're in agreement here - there's a first time for everything.

No i disagree with it being overrated, way too many people diss that solo.

I just like to begin many of my responses with "also" as a form of sarcasm.

Yeah, I was being sarcastic too.

No way, every stinking top guitar countdown has that piece of crap near the top, and I've never heard anyone say anything bad about it.
