Jimi is my favorite guitarist of all-time, so here you go... Yes, I know, how unique of me.

I don't know that this qualifies as a riff as we like to think of it, but I just wanted to put it up here because it's one of my favorite songs of all-time:

Lenny is one of my favorite musicians of all-time as well. Even though his stuff is relatively simple in technique, as a multi-instrumentalist he brings it altogether like no other:


(i actually can't remember if the intro was from slash on this one, but i think it was)

And I may be alone on this, but MAN, this is right up there in my favorite songs of all-time list as well. Foo Fighters are awesome...

I know zero guitar riffs by Collective Soul and you should be banned from the thread lol..


I just said it's recognizable. I'm sure you know it if you hear it.

Like STP- not a big fan, but Sex Type Thing might make this list.

One I just thought of and definitely should be here: Johnny B Good by Chuck Berry

Has anyone said U2 yet? One of the most distinctive guitar sounds of any band yet not necessarily standout riffs.
