Surfing with the Alien - Joe Satriani

It's not a real riff but great fun to solo along with. Helps me bring out my creative juices.

Stairway to Heaven. That break down type thing before the solo. Lots of fun for soloing. A-G-F-G [forgot what chord(s) (are) minor and can't be arsed to think].

Red House

Rude Mood

Or pretty much any blues standard.

Too bad there isn't such thing as a Metal standard.

The Allman Brothers Band and The Grateful Dead are also very good bands to solo over.


^that

Pretty much, any band that goes into a 2- or 3-chord vamp for several minutes at a time is great for jamming to.
