Hey guys,

Just looking for songs (well mainly riffs) that show off the main common effects found in rock electric guitar playing, to show someone learning guitar.

Mainly want reverb, delay, wah-wah, chorus, phaser and flanger.

The riffs I'm looking for are the most famous examples of the effect... for example, Voodoo Child for wah.

If not, some suggestions for research would help... I cant even find any hits on google!

Thanks all

Why not download the demo of Guitar Rig?

Even if you don't set it up to use your guitar with, it comes with tons of unprocessed guitar samples. All you have to do is load one into the player at the top, leave it on a loop and then you can mess around with all the different FX to hear their effect on the guitar.

check my profile for a jam i did with a mutron bi-phase(titled 'mutron bi-phase demo' appropriately enough). that is one demo you're not gonna run across much, it'll be hard to find any phaser that compares to it.

notice the super stereo phase goodness
