So what are some tight riffs?
Preferably some stuff that isn't amazingly hard (I don't have the attention span to work on a riff for more than 20 minutes unless its just the ****) but that sounds pretty tight.
It just kind of dawned on me a while ago that I really don't have many impressive riffs to bust out so yeah.

Jimmy Page really did write some amazing riffs. Purple Haze is pretty easy too. Hendrix, another godly riff writer. Something more modern...Wolfmother maybe? I don't know any heavier riffs, so ask a metalhead about that.

Hook up the wah-wah and bend alot and play jazz chords. I remember when I first got my wah, it always sounded like a porno was coming from the basment.

Jazz uses a lot of extended chord voicings, the easiest "jazz" chords to start with are just regular 7th chords, then maybe on to add9 chords and such. Something I've found to be quite entertaining, but not neccesarily jazzy sounding is to just make up a really simple and standard chord progression, whether its open chords or powerchords it doesnt much matter. Then substitute the chords with more advanced ones. A fun way to start is if you have a chord book to just sub in the chords you don't ever use. However, doing this you also have to be careful with the added chord tones that you are including in the progression. If you give it time and a little effort often you'll come out with some pretty cool sounding stuff.

^^ you could also check out tabs of George Benson, he used very cool chord progressions, usually with 8th's added.

8ths?,,,,those are just octaves,,,in regards to the threadstarters question for some sexy riffs, I really dig Lamb of God's riffs,,,they aren't all that difficult or anything most of the time, but they always sound crushing,,,especially Ashes of the Wake,,,,that song has a lot of really sweet riffs, and a really cool atonal riff that kick ass.

The two heavy metal riff writers are Tony Iommi and Dave Mustaine. Seriously.
