What's your favorite classic guitar Riff? Mine would have to be a tie between "Crossroads" by Eric Clapton and "Bark at The Moon" by Ozzy Osbourne. Two of the best riff's and solo's ever created. "Crossroads" has a bluesy rock sound while "Bark at The Moon" has a metal sound that will blow you out of the water. "Crossroads" and "Bark at The Moon" have two of the best guitar solo's ever created. "Crossroads" has two solo's while "Bark at The Moon" has only one, but "Crossraods" guitar is very well done and Eric Clapton really gets into it while "Bark at The Moon" has a solo that is absolutely fantastic and crazy. I recommend listening to both songs, they're fantastic!

Riff? Hmm. There's lots, so I'll just pick one: "Cocaine". Both J.J. Cale's, and the multitude of Clapton versions. It can be hard and funky and just does a lot with two chords.


Same with the solo, but one that I love is on Dream I'll Never See by the Allman Brothers. Duane just does a great job with that solo.

I like the train whistle sound and the rhythm riff from "Train Kept a' Rollin'." Beck is lord.

Personally I like the Riff out of Money because it's pretty original (being 7/4 timing) and cool cause I can play it.

favourite solo obviously Comfortably Numb ... enough said.
