Wednesday Question: Most Complex Guitar Riff Ever
If there's one thing to get a guitarist tingling, it's a tasty riff. But tasty can mean quite a few different things.

On one hand, there are riffs stunningly simple, yet incredibly tasty. But on the other, the proper mixture of technique and guitar mastery can result in riffs stunningly complex, yet once again incredibly tasty. So as the title reads, we're focusing on the latter group, making this week's Wednesday Question:

What is the most complex guitar riff ever?

'Tis your time to shine, prog lovers. Name that single riff that just takes you on a journey with its staggering intricateness. Or that riff you've been struggling with for years now. There can only be one No. 1 of course, and you get to choose it.

Same rules as always apply - only one suggestion per comment, vote up the ideas you support and vote down the ones you dislike. We'll sum up your votes by Friday and bring you another traditional UG Top 10. Let the complexity battle begin!
