The new songs are an abomination

Fuzzface

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 .....

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
