The gang (or person) over at Blend Guitar has compiled a new video list—”The Top 10 Guitar Harmonies of All Time”—and we think it’s worth a look.

Perhaps its best feature is its refreshing inclusion of a few offbeat choices, including tunes by Kiss, Racer X and Megadeth. The clip has earned more than 180,000 views in just a few days.

Synchronized guitar work—which requires skillful harmonization—can take the multi-guitar lineup to its full potential—that is, make all lead parts sound bigger and badder. For more on the topic, be sure to check out our own list of “The Top 10 Guitar Harmonies of All Time” and “How to Build Classic Three-Part Metal Guitar Harmonies,” a popular lesson (with tab and video) by Metal Mike Chlasciak. Enjoy!

    Clearly written by a metal head with a token nod to a couple of earlier progenitors of the form… and typical picks. Including “Hotel California” seemed to be an obligatory inclusion (but it is a fantastic example and worthy of the list).

    Let us add three to this…

    Wishbone Ash: The Warrior; The Pilgrimage
    Allman Bros: In Memory of Elizabeth Reed (far superior to Jessica)

    Kiss’ twin harmony effort isn’t worthy of a top ten inclusion here… and neither are a few others. Free Bird… eh… okay.

    But, hey, as with any list, one can agree or disagree with the lineup.
