What riffs that you can play, make you look like you're playing a really hard riff when really it actually easy as hell.

Off the top of my head I'd say:

As The Palaces Burn by LoG verse riff (its not super easy, but when you see someone play it looks pretty hard)

Downfall by CoB intro riff
ONE BADASS SIGNATURE
#3
The Power Rangers Theme song. It is really easy, very basic tapping, but sounds cool, and looks hard to people who don't play guitar.
#4
black dog, cowboys from hell. Theyre both easy but look hard.
VENUSIAN
FB SC BC TW
Patterns In The Ivy present ethnicity on an intriguing and dedicated level. ~Ambient Exotica
A mesmeric melange of yearning voice, delicate piano and carefully chosen samples. ~Lost Voices

Plug-in baby by Muse.

If you're a talented guitarist you just need to practice it a bit and you'll get pretty damn good at it.

I played it in front of my friends at twice the speed Matt Bellamy does on the CD and they thought it was awesome. Ha.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Black Dog is easy. I can't play Cowboys from hell as fast as it's s'posed to be...

Ok whilst it's not as hard as people say it is, that's a ****ing difficult song. The man asked for easy riffs.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

The first solo in master of puppets is pretty easy
Quote by I'm_Guitarded
yea, but perhaps this was meant to be...
there could be a handful of stoners somewhere in Jersey that are on the verge of creating a new metal...a new thrash metal...

Look at all the people posting "ZOMG I CANT BELIEVE THAT YOU THINK MASTER OF PUPPETS IS HARD!!1!!!"

The guy asked for very easy riffs.

I personally like the bit in A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation with the bends in it.
#34
Crazy Train. Also, that riff from Stockholm Syndrome by Muse sounds tough, but it's easy shit.
I'm a person.
#35
I would say "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Play that once in a while and it'll turn some heads.

Or of course "Raining Blood" by Slayer.

Bleh, for me it was the opposite. I never thought it was the least bit hard till I tried to play it.

No it's not. The only hard thing about it is the main solo. The rest is just downpicked easiness.

I have to agree with that. After about a year of playing, you should be able to play the main solo pretty well too I would think. That's about when I learned it.
