Hard to rank a 'best' guitar team in the history of metal, so what's your favorite? I listed all the classic twin axe attacks I could think of at the moment, but I'm sure I'm forgetting something...

Adrian Smith and Dave Murray for me

Adrian Smith and Dave Murray of course.
I was thinking about the Judas team as well. But they never came close to the twin harmonies on the classic Maiden records.

The Lizzy option as it is seems a little silly, as it was Gorham/Robertson for the longest period of time, as you know of course. Regardless that was still a compelling choice, as are Downing/Tipton and Sherman/Denner but I went with Smith/Murray.

Maiden is my favorite band and those harmonies will always be with me.

Yeah, but there are simply too many amazing harmonies and riffs in the post-Robertson albums that the work Gorham did with Moore/White/Sykes can't be ignored in any discussion of guitar orgasms Cool

Iron Maiden but Simon and Garfunkel are very close second.

Of course there are. "Black Rose" and "Thunder and Lightning" are probably my #1 and 2 Lizzy albums; I suppose I just don't think of the other pairs as duos as much as the work solidified on Nightlife through J. The Fox/Bad Rep.

Gotta go with Tipton and KK, simply for the unbelievable music they created in the 70's and even the early 80's.

Smith and Murray of corpse. Honorable mention to Ramsey and Tippins.

Quite a hard decision.
Went for Tipton/Downing because they probably are the longest running duo on the poll with the most consistent output over the years. Sure they have had a few dud's but they also have crafted a lot more classics than most of the other duo's.
Smith and Murray are up there, as well as Hanneman and King.
But no one can truly compare to the strong twin guitar attack Priest had for their first 20 odd years.
