Top Ten Greatest Guitar RiffsDeathToMayo
The Contenders: Page 3
. If I had a guitar I'd play this first. I really love this riff - BigBadBeast
First riff I ever learned and one of the best in history
Priest has some of the best and heaviest guitar riffs of all time and they can't get even one song in the top 10?!
My favorite Riff of all time - christangrant
58? People are idiots
37? Really? Wow people, I don't even know what to say, this is one of the most amazkng riffs ever :(
These assessments are ridiculous and often just for promotional purposes. However intentionally provocative I will say that there is a lot of good music here. Though indistinguishable as to what is the best, if one can quantify that. I guess my biggest problem is who adjudicates over such a silly category. Often those with limited perspective, so we wallow in their design. Throw their judgments away. They have no voice of authority to do so. I'm an old man (64) and grew up with the greats, worked at the Fillmore East and will say that my view has no more merit than the idiots who propose such a silly idea. No Beck, Green, Lee etc etc... Haha, come on...
The best guitar rift of all time. He plays it straight, then slide, then wah wah, then back to straight. Not one other mentioned guitar rift has this variety or explosive energy. This should be Number One!
I would have liked to have been at the recording studio to hear this one being put down in history. I have listened to this song hundreds of times and I'm sure I will listen many hundreds more..
Are you F*** Kidding me...
Jimi Hendrix at 51? He practically invented Guitar Riffs
Rolling stones name him the Number 1 Guitarist of all time. Especially all along the watch tower. Its famous even in third world countries. A true International Hit. Used in Forrest Gump and other countless productions!. Number 51? Seriously I will not be visiting this website anytime soon
Probably Rage Against The Machine's most memerable and widely played song. Tom Morello dose a great job of making musical volcanic eruptions. So simple, so powerful. And then comes... WAH WAH CHIKA WAH WAH CHIKA CHIKA CHIKA...
Then that epic solo that sounds like a turntable!
why is this not on the list?
the best intro of all time - richie4life
Completely underrated riff, solo, lyrics, and song. - VonHaggles
Hallowed Be Thy Name is one of the greatest song in history. And riff is amazing!
Love it, best song on 'Number if the Beast' and I'm an old rocker so I should know!
How can it be on no.97
It should be at least in top 30
one of the best songs of a great band - ronluna
The starting is just ridiculously good
Surprisingly low for one of the most catchy riffs out there.
Muse's music is completely amazing, and out of the box. Plug In Baby was voted the Best Riff of the century. Many of their songs deserve to be right up there. Matthew Bellamy is the best guitarist in the world.
Incredible riff, fabulous song! - 23delusions
Brilliant riff should be at the top ten
Tiene un increible comienzo con la tecnica armonica habitual de Matt,
que te the a pensar que escucharas a Slayer o Pantera(comienzo muy pesado), pero cada ves va ganando melodia, llegando a un legendario coro, siguiendo heavy, y con pausas muy precisas
Sin duda uno de los mejores riffs de Matt y de la historia
The riff is great and all, but the cowbell is the best part.
This is a pretty scary, but good song. It's based on Romeo and Juliet, and the guitar is amazing.
Really? This is great riff, no a heavenly one. Surprised it's not higher on the list. Come one, people.
