25 or 6 to 4 by chicago, my uncles a bassist and he just happened to be over the day I bought my guitar so I learned a bass line for my first riff, lol.

That was during my first "guitar lesson". Which was basically watching my friend shred all over his sweet Fender Stratocaster.

intro to "one" by metallica.

That was my first too, I was hooked after that.
Hmmm....I believe it was either the main bass riff in Accept's Balls To The Wall or the intro to Paranoid.
It's actually a really unique one for me. Possum Kingdom by the Toadies. I stand out.

good, however give yourself a pat on the back for starting a thread that contains a picture of Optimus Prime!

This thread sucks and is now about slot cars.
The first riff i could play well was Nothing Else Matters Intro. Not even have to use my fretting hand.
Smoke On The Water or the Crossroads intro.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

"there is no spoone" - The Matricks
Ode to Joy-Beethoven was first beginner song.

Man Who Sold The World-Nirvana (orig. by David Bowie) was probably my first whole song learned within a day.

Smells Like Teen Spirit-Nirvana was probably the 2nd one. Can't remember. Until I got my Artcore and AD15VT I was a Nirvana junkie. I have played just about every one of their songs. Can't say I've memorized all of them though.
First riff would be the intro to Dead Skin Mask.
It's just such an easy riff that takes little to no practice almost
mine was the intro to Electric Funeral by Black Sabbath
