Most melodic lead ever! It grabs you like no ther.
oh, just listen to the riff on their "Live" album at Donnington in your car, and have it blasting! best ac/dc riff ever besides thunderstruck! - PCamron90

Good, but the bass riff was better. - zxm
no doubt, its one of the best riffs I've ever heard - ronluna
Dutch band, song came out in 1973 and was recorded live! Unbelievable!
The opening 10 seconds of the song say it all.
It's not a hard-rock riff, but it's got to be the sweetest, most melodic riff that anybody has mentioned so far. Squire is the modern-day guitar hero!
So many guitar riffs in one song; Rolling Stone said it has a whole album's worth of guitar riffs in one song!
You might not know the name of the song, but this is truly an iconic riff. So fun to play :D
