8. Buckethead “Soothsayer (Dedicated to Aunt Suzie)”
Appearing on the guitarist’s eighteenth studio album, Crime Slunk Scene, the track has become one of his most popular. It is frequently played live and has become available as part of a downloadable track pack for the game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.
7. Yngwie Malmsteen “Black Star”
A track off the virtuoso guitarist’s debut album Rising Force, it is still one of his most popular songs and has become a staple of his live set list. It is considered neo-classical metal at its peak – Malmsteen’s technical abilities would help to pave the way for the neo-classical metal explosion in the 80s.
