That list has some Hammett, some Dime, some Rhoads, and some Eric Johnson in the top 20. So I'm not sure it's fair to say that metal or shredding are unrepresented. After that it also has Vai and Satriani. #36 is by Malmsteen. And so on. Metal and shred, considering their place in the overall context of music, are pretty fairly represented.

I'm really sick of seeing this every time somebody puts out a list of great guitarists. Metal guitarists aren't going to be on there in force. Why? Because they're not by and large the best guitarists in the world, and even more because they're not the best known.

What I am surprised to see is so little Gilmour.

I didn't mean the ones they included, which are all so obvious I didn't have to check the list to know they were there. But his solos on, say, 'Dogs' are better than many of the ones on that list, and more structurally integral to the song (Waters even gave him a writing credit on the song, which is not standard practice for Waters, because he though they leadwork was so clutch). That is a test of a great lead and a great lead player, for me, and one to which not many lead players can actually measure up.

some unmentioned so far:

Death - Story to Tell
Edge of Sanity - Aftermath (the little solo that kicks off the song)
Cynic - How Could I (the last 2 minutes of the song are mind-numbing awesome)

edit: Infinity already mentioned Cynic.

The list itself is best solos, not best known solos.
although many songs on this do belong there, its not a question on who or who doesnt know the song, its the talent or technique put into it.

But i am sorry that i didnt see rhoads or vai on the list, that was my overlook. never-the-less, admit that not only most of the bands on it shouldnt be there, and the fact that there are far more supremly pulled off solos.

and just to put it out there, anyone here the solo in the powerrangers theme song? thats wicked.

A well-known solo is sometime well-known for a reason. Pure talent doesn't mean shit if the context is wrong. This is a fact well-hidden from modern metalheads and fans of virtuosity in any era, but it's still a fact. Saying that there's a 'better pulled-off solo' out there doesn't mean it's a better one, it just means that you're more impressed by it. But an impressive solo for its own sake is just so much masturbation.
