  1. Every note is hard for me to play on guitar 🙁

  2. The sails of charon is missing. Kirk Hammet can´t play it 🙂

  3. It's taking so long to buffer

  4. Are you kidding IMAO: Such guitars never get close to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xegzMWulhbo

  5. Why is there a Slash intro? He's not a very technical player.

  6. The only ones that look and sound difficult are through fire and flames, dance of eternity and eruption

  7. Yep holy wars……the bloody fingers is not hard at all lol……

  8. Here's a list revised coming from a guitarist:
    10: This Charming Man
    9: Sultans of Swing
    8: Master of Puppets
    7: Eruption
    6: Scene Seven I: The Dance of Eternity
    5: Steve Vai – Tender Surrender
    4: Megadeth – Tornado of Souls
    3: Cliffs of Dover
    2: Through the Fire and Flames
    1: CAFO

  9. Dire straits hardest than Metallica, Animals as Leaders and Dragonforce? Wow I can't beleive it

  10. Lol i thought it was Rock songs, not heavy metal and so on, (Trash list)

  11. I played this Charming man when I was ten. This song is everything but hard to play

  12. Where's Wyld Stallins?

  13. Lol even my bass player can play eruption😂

  14. I tried playing all of these on my air guitar, none of these were very hard.

  15. Through the fire and flames-dragonforce

  16. I THOUGHT IT WAS AN ACTUAL LIST EVEN M SIS CAN PLAY MASTER OF PUPETS THE OOOONLY ACTUAL HRD SONG IS SNOW

  17. I think this is a bad choice of topic for this simplistic "top-10" format. If you want to argue something is hard, you should also show exactly why it's hard. For example, I know there's plenty of people who will say they can play Master of Puppets but It's pretty rare to hear someone who can make it sound right (usually they take shortcuts). So, if you want to claim something that many will disagree with, they won't believe you unless you prove it!

  18. Should have known better than to expect a good list from watchmojo

  19. Eruption is hard??? Snow -_- sultans of swing??? this charming man omg…. honorable mentions for steve vai??? :l

  20. i thought michael angelo would be on here

  21. FUCK VAN HALEN FUCK HIM IN IS BIG WIDE POMPOUS ASS

  22. If you think through fire and flames is hard on guitar you should try and play it on guitar hero three on expert.

  23. Okay through fire and flames is too hard for me. Especially since I don’t have a whammy lol

  24. These are advanced songs according to Ultimate Guitar probably, but these are not the most difficult lol

  25. So I guess I’m the best guitarist Im the world.

  26. Most of Dragonforce’s songs are harder than through the fire and flames.

  27. One by Metallica is hard the solo

  28. Ever heard of Megadeth? Honestly Stevie T did a better analysis. Go watch that.

  29. Very impressive but can you play the mythical, impossible, impressive……

    SLOW RIDE?!
