Vivian Campbell uses the first three notes of the Cm scale and their respective 5th notes to create one of the best utilizations of power chords in metal history. A truly great song. - Edgelord
A different kind of riff by Johnny Ramone. - zxm
Hold on. You are telling me that Smoke on the Water is better than this riff?! Hell no! - GGiant1921
Well I just really enjoy and play this awesome riff. Jake E Lee at his finest!
If you can, watch the Cheap Trick DVD "Silver, " where Rick and Slash are trading furious riffs in one of Cheapt Trick's greatest rockers.
The whole song is a guitar masterpiece! - richie4life
Really amazing riff listen to it now - ballaboi17
Haha! Not one you'd expect to be here but it totally deserves it! Total master work!
Raise your hands, as first song in concert : everyone obeys Jonny ^^V 1 Comment
This should be number one. Matt is a revolutionary guitarist and an amazing song writer. I understand some people do not like Muse's style or how Matt uses his voice (I think he is amazing), but even they have to admit this riff is amazing. Forever a Muser.
This is the best Total Guitar voted of the past decade! :)
He should be in an higher rank! :)
It is also really good to play, and all the song is great ;)
When I go in Guitar shops I see everyone play this its so good. - GlonnAtronnAdonnAdict
