A really groovy riff that I like a lot is "Have A Cigar" by Pink Floyd 8)

Has any one mentionned Metallica yet?

Just about anything from them counts especially from the early albums.
I'll pick the 4 Horseman this time but you could easy have Creeping Death or master of Puppets or .....

Thin Lizzy have also come up with some great riffs, for example:

"Got To Give It Up"
"Cowboy Song"
"Suicide"
etc.
etc.

For the sake of making a different selection I'll go with UNCHAINED by the mighty VH.

EVH was a riff machine. SO many to choose from - You Really Got Me, Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love, Jump, Beautiful Girls, Panama, Loss of Control......

But when it comes to VH riffs you're hard pushed to beat the opening minute of Hot For Teacher, and that riff's by a drummer ffs...... 8)

EVH was a bit special in that 78-84 era.....one riff that hasn't been mentioned so far in this thread......Hang Em High. Check it out.....that frankenstrat sound was never really bettered in his later years

How could you expect me to live without you? One cannot become accustomed to the loss of happiness.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away

masters of the universe- hawkwind sort of death metal 10 years to early and it has to be the original record release which is spooky

rock and roll-led zep classic simple why did i not think of that, where sotr is very clever and pure alex at his best and when alex is at his best hes the best guitarist in the world..............i love alex....... all hail alex
