Led Zeppelin has topped the Q Magazine list of Greatest Guitar Tracks of All Time. Of all 20 songs listed, two of the rock band's hits "Black Dog" and "Dazed and Confused" are placed at no 1 and 2 respectively.

The list was chosen by the rock experts: Ron Wood of The Rolling Stones, The Police's Andy Summers, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Zeppelin's very own guitarist Jimmy Page.

"This 20 greatest list is, we feel, the definitive one, since it's not been determined by a bunch of musically-challenged hacks, but by more than able guitarists, people of the standing of Jimmy Page and Ronnie Wood . If they don't know what they're talking about, no one does," said Q editor Paul Rees.

The Top Ten Greatest Guitar Songs in Music History:

  1. Black Dog - Led Zeppelin
  2. Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin
