Los 100 mejores solos de guitarra por Guitar World

Los 100 mejores solos de guitarra por Guitar World

A todo el mundo le gusta un solo de guitarra, ya sea un riff, una exhibición de dominio técnico o un pasaje instrumental que resuma la vida. Los mejores solos de guitarra a menudo completan una canción y, la mayoría de las veces, trascienden la canción por completo.

El problema es que hay muchos para elegir…

En el año 2006, la revista Guitar World realizó una encuesta para que sus lectores opinaran qué solos de guitarra consideraban los mejores de todos los tiempos. Los resultados seguramente reflejan la demografía de la revista (sin solos de guitarra de jazz, por ejemplo).
