a guitar/bass riff is a line that is repeated many times and kind of drives the song, while a solo is a crazy bit of playing that is often very different from the rest of the song and is not repeated(you can have multiple solos).

What exactly are you laughing at? Not the question I hope, because that would make you a useless battie man who attempts to make himself feel better by laughing at others who happen to know less than yourself.

but we all know thats not the case :rolleyes:
