Don't think this has been done before. So like the title says, what are some of your favorite verse riffs? Mine are:

Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
Iron Maiden - Wrathchild
Metallica - Master of Puppets
RHCP - Under the Bridge (not exactly a riff but whatever)
#2
Alter Bridge - Find The Real
New To Town With A Made Up Name

In The Angel's City

Lately I've found that the verse riff the Killswitch Engage's "My Curse" really fun to play. But if I had to choose the best of all time I'd go with "Ironman" by Black Sabbath. Classic.

I'm quite fond of the various riffs in Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin.

Isnt that just straight D's? Or very similar at least, I'm pretty sure it only uses one note.

That's because the verse riff is boring and it's mostly keyboard anyway.

Another one bites the dust - Queen
Come together - The Beatles
Black Dog - Led Zeppelin
The Trooper - Iron Maiden

You cant really say what is best, but those rock.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
