Best Ever Guitar Riffs


Recommended Posts

I think there should be a thread on this, I'll start with:

 

SMOKE ON THE WATER by Deep Purple

 

0--3--5----0--3--6-5----0--3--5--3--0

 

or power chords

 

A 2--5--7----2--5--8-7----2--5--7--5--2

E 0--3--5----0--3--6-5----0--3--5--3--0

 

I know everyone knows it but oh well.

 

Ppl can continue the list.[/b]

I used to work in a music store, and if people came in and played any of the songs you just listed I just used to roll my eyes and try not to say anything rude. :lol:

 

Same goes for "Stairway to Heaven," obviously (see: Wayne's World).

 

What do you mean try? :sneaky:

Stairway to Heaven has the best guitar in a song ever written.

I was in the guitar center the other day and this guy started playing Stairway to Heaven so badly. He was asked to stop as people were starting to leave. lol

But anyway why would someone go into a music store and just start playing a guitar?

 

I don't get it. A lot of people I know enjoy going to guitar shops just to play the guitars and show off, with no intention of buying them, but I hate it.

 

Don't get me wrong, I love playing guitar as much as many other people, perhaps even more. But I just can't sit in a guitar shop and play a guitar for more than 10 minutes unless I'm there to buy it. It doesn't matter if I'm playing a Telecaster through a Fender Twin or something, I just get bored of it all very quickly. Might as well stay at home - at least there I won't get the piss taken out of me by the shop staff.

 

 

anyway, rant over, now here are some super-duper cool riffs:

 

The Beatles - I Want To Tell You

The Beatles - I Feel Fine

The Beatles - Come Together

The Beatles - Day Tripper

The Beatles - Paperback Writer

Radiohead - Paranoid Android

Radiohead - I Might Be Wrong

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Six Barrel Shotgun

The Stone Roses - Fool's Gold

The Stone Roses - Sally Cinnamon

Jeff Buckley - What Will You Say?

Beck - Loser

Beck - Devil's Haircut

 

I could go on all day listing Beatles riffs
