The Best Guitar Riffs

Great stuff there! :thumbs:

I also think that the following are brilliant, if you love guitar:

Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Are You Gonna Go My Way - Lenny Kravitz
Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits
Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard
Parisienne Walkways - Gary Moore
Americana - The Offspring (the intro is brilliant, while the rest of the song goes rather downhill)
Hammer To Fall - Queen
Time - Pink Floyd (amongst numerous others! But I think you all know by now that I'm a fan! Big Grin )

I'll probably think of more as the night progresses! :p

I am so glad you mentioned Gary Moore as I was slightly peeved that he wasn't in their list :mad:

That got me thinking to what a "riff" is so I decided to look it up and am now more confused...

Oxford - A short repeated phrase in jazz etc.

Miriam Webster - an ostinato phrase (as in jazz) typically supporting a solo improvisation; also : a piece based on such a phrase

So is it a unique solo like in Gary Moore's "Parisienne Walkways" or short repetitive repeated piece like in most songs ?

Any muso's or fans out there that can tell me which it is ? :confused:
