Who writes the best riffs in your opinion? What makes a good riff good? I'm trying to learn how to write good riffs myself, but I don't know who to emulate or how to go about it.

larry lalonde writes the best riffs. they're usually nothing flashy, but they get the job done.
a good riff is 20% skill, and 80% knowing when to hold back

good riffs tend to be simplistic, not so difficult to learn or play, and repetitive. thats what makes the popular and catchy
