Top 5 Guitar Riffs

Posted by Amy Park on March 26, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Ok, so a slight move away from just gig and album reviews.  I sit at my work and at home and run through song after song in my head and I have started to compile lists in my head.  So I thought I'd share them and ask for your opinion.

Top 5 Guitar riffs of all time

1. Back in Black - AC/DC

2. Whole lotta love - Led Zeppelin

3. Smoke on the water - Deep Purple

4. Enter Sandman - Metallica

5. Sweet child o' mine - Guns n Roses

Not necessarily in that order. Opinions people.  Enter your own top 5.  Mine are below.

1.Barracuda - Heart

2. Back in Black - AC/DC

3.Bodies - The Smashing Pumpkins

4. Smells like teen spirit - Nirvana

5. All day and all of the night - The Kinks

Limiting it to 5 is pretty difficult. Below are just a small selection of my favourite guitar riffs :) Pretty sure I could do a top 100, lol

5. Zebra - John Butler Trio
4. Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
3. Mississippi Queen - Mountain
2. Rock & Roll - Led Zeppelin
1. If You Want Blood (You've Got It) - ~AC/DC

Well Highstrummer, nice selction of Riffs there, good choice. Not as good as mine obviously. We could be here forever if we got into Top 100's but yea it is hard limiting it to 5, that's why it's fun.
