Top Ten Greatest Guitar RiffsDeathToMayo
The Contenders: Page 6
Great but the Switch 625 - definitely Leppard from their 1981 album " High 'n' Dry " one of the best riffs ever.
One of the best riffs to ever begin a live show... And one of my favourite rock songs. Brian May has a few great ones to choose from; Queen didn't do a lot in that regard, so the few they did use were smokin.
Best damn riff ever. Can't believe this is the only queen song here. People should start listening to good music
Maybe not number one riff but waaay higher than 103
Hows this not higher on the list?! The riff is amazing and its throughout the whole song.
Yes it's amazing, but it should be credited to Bowie, given he's the original artist. - CharlieM
Super sexy guitar riff!
One of the best opening guitar riffs along with "pictures of matchstick men" by status quo & "baby blue" by badfinger
Killer riffs from mark morton.
Okay, I know everybody's just here to see the top ten, but DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND LISTEN TO AT LEAST THE FIRST MINUTE OF THIS SONG, it's beautiful and thrilling and in my opinion is the best riff of all time. Pink Floyd is the master of walkdowns.V 1 Comment
Sorry, but that ain't no riff. You may say there are some repeated notes. But those are licks, not riffs. - zxm
It's a catchy song not my fave song forever and the riff is easy to remember and is in tune with the song I played this whole song by just making a few changes to the riff and it was like you couldn't even tell the diffrence
I can't help falling in love with this acoustic guitar's sound!
The classic sound by a classic guitar just sounds awesome! - Green_Day
This is a good song but it's not really a riff - Sabbath
