Ok im new to the site and i just got a guitar about 8 days ago and i know some riffs from:
paint it black
raining blood (part after long notes)
Soothsayer by Buckethead (intro)
Metal Heavy Lady
Beast And the harlot (intro)
Down with the sickness (intro)
Crazy Train (lol intro)
Smoke on the water
Enter Sandman
(a couple others i cannot think of...)

So what are some good riffs for beginners I can check out besides these?
try some beatles.
