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
Super sexy guitar riff!
One of the best opening guitar riffs along with "pictures of matchstick men" by status quo & "baby blue" by badfinger
How is this and Come As You Are so low?! And where's Soundgarden?
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
I'm 100% sure, no one would've listened to this song... I myself was shocked because the song is a bit dry but LINKIN PARK DELIVERED AN 80'S GUITAR RIFF here and its MESMERISING
Truly the greatest guitar riff ever made! If you haven't heard this song, you should definitely do it! Because you will be blown away!
Should definitely be higher, even if the riff itself isn't the best the song more than makes up for it
Great solo, great song, great band! Metallica for life! M/
Any Megadeth riff, dave mustaine was ranked number one rhythm metal guitarist in guitar one mag. i have no clue why there is no respect to him on this site, it's the overpowering metallica that makes megadeth get ignored when they are equals. Mechanix is the original four horsemen
the fastest riff I ever heard. fits about 100 chords in every second. the master - mustaine. megadeth ftw!
