Howdy,

Just came across this thread somewhere this morning. Wanted to know the opinion of fellow ranchers on what they think are the greatest riffs.

Here a few great riffs that I can think of off the top of my head:

1) Back in Black- Ac/Dc
2) Enter Sandman - Metallica
3) Eruption - Eddie Van Halen
4) Iron Man - Black Sabbath
5) Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple
6) Cocaine - Eric Clapton
7) Kashmir - Jimmy Page
8) Crazy Train - Ozzy Osborne
9) Sweet Chile o' mine- Slash

I'll probably add on a few more later..

Cheers

From what I've read/heard, the guitar riff on "Sweet Child O' Mine" came from Slash practicing a finger exercise. The whole band originally though it was a joke.

What about "Satisfaction"? Too obvious? You've somehow left off Jimi Hendrix too.
