This is not subject best guitarist overall , but just riffs. So who has the best riffs? In my opinion it is Ritchie Blackmore. Please, not overall (mine overall is Page) but just riffs

I consider jimmy page a riff machine, so i guess thats almost the same thing as the master, heh. If he isn't the "best", he's damn good at it.

I agree with those who said (and will say) Jimmy Page and JPJ.

Jimmy page is the best riff maker ever but one of my favorite riffs has got to be "Sunshine of your Love" So I'll give Jack Bruce some credit. I freaking love that song.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

you used the right form of "their!" i commend you sir!

I'm going to have to go with the Jimmy Page/John Paul Jones combo along with the Billy Gibbons/Dusty Hill combo. I'm not really sure who the main riff writer is with the last set, so if anyone knows better, feel free to enlighten me.
#17
Tony Iommi and Ritchie Blackmore are the ultimate riffmakers. It seems like they can just churn them out on every song they write.

I'll agree with everyone who said Tony Iommi. He IS THE RIFFMASTER.

Riffmaster? I can not name any one person. I must name several of my favorites instead: Tony Iommi, Malcolm Young, Joe Perry, and Randy Rhoads.

^^Yeah, you're right, but from what I've noticed, most of us have agreed that Page is the riffmaster (in our opinions, of course ).

I think the reason he's so heavily regarded as "The Riff King" is because almost every Zep song revolves around a main riff played over and over again. Even with how much the same riff is repeated in a song, it always sounds good and never gets old.
#29
I'm not really saying anything that hasnt been said already but deffinately Blackmore in both Deep Purple and Rainbow, Smoke on the Water is one of the most memorable riffs ever and he did plenty more than that, most of it is over looked.
Gates of Babylon
Man on the Silver Mountain
Mistreated
Stargazer
Ariel
Perfect Strangers
Battle Rages on
Blood Sucker
Eyes of Fire
Black Masquerade
Dead or Alive
and everything else really

Tony Iommi came up with some great riffs like Iron Man another memorable riff. And Page is also great but I wouldnt say his riffs were as catchy as the other guys.

is that a joke?
Rainbow in the Dark is by the band Dio, nothing to do with Ritchie. Good song though
I could have gone on forever with Blackmore riffs
I would like to say Slash as well but he's not CR

^Yeah dude. I do believe that riff belongs to Vivian Campbell. Correct me if I am wrong though. It's one of Dio's old guitarists......


But Ritchie still pwns anyway

Dude, you guys are forgetting about Pink Floyd, man. Not only David Gilmour and Roger Waters riffs, but Syd Barrett also had some cool riffs, he was a great rhythm player.
#38
^Someone else mentioned Floyd but I wouldnt say they were 'the best' riff masters or anything. Don't get me wrong I love them to pieces but they seem more sort of melodic tunes rather than riffs. Learning to Fly is awsome though, now thats a riff. Thats just my opinion with the tunes I like by them.

I also forgot Randy Rhoads.

^No, you didn't forget him. Forgetting him would be to not mention him at all, but you just mentioned him
