Ok I personally would take a crazy riff any day, but a crazy solo could prove far more difficult.

Post up your faveorite crazy riffs VS your faveorite crazy solos.

Mine would be;

Riff- Bloodmeat, Protest the hero.

Solo- The butcher, Rusty Cooley
I'm Just a Box in a Cage
I'm Just a Box in a Cage
I'm Just a Box in a Cage

Riff = Money for Nothing by Dire Straits (I Guess...)
Solo = pfffff... Nothingham Lace Buckethead or Freebird Lynard Skynyrd
#3
Hmmm craziest riff would probably be Insert Coin by Mattias "IA" Eklundh. Craziest solo would be In the Name of God by Dream Theater.
#4
Frantic Disembowelment- Cannibal Corpse has the most ridiculous riffs I've ever seen.

Not sure about craziest solo, too many to list. Probably something by Nevermore.

Riff - Little Wing
Solo - Time

What I wouldn't give to hear Gilmour solo over Little Wing...

YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG

Riff - Scarified - Racer X
Solo - Cowboys From Hell - Pantera (I haven't bothered to learn too many full solos)

Little Wing doesn't even have something you could call a riff anyway.

I call shenanigans. Little Wing has dozens of little riffs that weave their way through the song in an orgasmic harmony.

If the lack of a single, repetative, hooky, headbanging shred-tastic million-note-a-second-heavy-as-hell-gain-to-10 'riff' puts you off Little Wing...well...then I don't really care what you think.

Gods, arguing on the internet is soul-destorying.

Riff - The interlude from "Octavarium" by Dream Theater (Guitar/Keyboard duet, just before the fourth section).
Solo - Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater (of course...)
Quote by metal4all
Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

I call shenanigans on close minded generalizations, look in my profile for a cover of Little Wing.

I call shenanigans on using American spellings with 'z' instead of 's'.

i think he's right though. i wouldnt say there are any actual "riff"s in little wing. id call it "melody" instead. id call a riff something more that repeats through out the song. kind of a theme. none of the little wing melody really repeats itself rather it just kind of goes on though the song.

although id say there are LICKS that weave their way through the song in an orgasmic harmony. also i did a cover of little wing....yes self promotion.
