Your favourite guitar riffs

This took me quite the time to think about since I love guitar so much and have so many favourites but in the end im pretty happy with my choices

-Slayer-Angel Of Death-The famous mosh riff
-Black Sabbath-Any riff by Iommi but right now Supernauts main riff is stuck in my head
-Rush-YYZ-The main riff
-Iron Maiden-Powerslaves main riff
-Kiss-God Of Thunder-Main riff
-Rage Against The Machine-Sleep Know In The Fire- Main riff
-Metallica-Master Of Puppets-Pretty much evry riff in this song is fucking awesome
-Led Zeppelin-Kashmir-I love the songs main riff it sounds so epic and heavy.
-Van Halen-Aint Talkin Bout Love-The intro riff
-Cream-Sunshine Of Your Love-One of the most famous riffs in rock n roll and for good reason
-Megadeth-Rust In Peace-Intro riff by Marty and Dave is metal at its greatest
-Sepultra-Beneath The Remains-Those four bars before the chorus
-Pantera-The Great Southern Trendkill-That riff were the song slows down with all those harmonics is just
-Ozzy Osbourne-I Dont Know-The main riff
-Cannibal Corpse-Hammer Smashed Face-Not a huge fan of the band but cant deny that the riff after the intro riff is fucking awesome

Iron Maiden: Hallowed Be Thy Name - final guitar harmony riff
Slayer: Angel of Death - mosh riff
Megadeth: Bad Omen - both funky-ass main riffs
Ozzy: Diary of a Madman - the completely badass riff that comes in between the long chant-y bridge and Randy's eerie solo
Ozzy: Believer - main riff
Mastodon: Seabeast - final riff
Opeth: Deliverance - final riff
Hendrix: Purple Haze - main riff

That's just the prominent metal riffs that come to mind. I'm not gonna take the time to delve into all my favorite non-metal riffs just now.

Damn near every riff written by either Iommi or Tim Sult.

That middle, mini-solo part of "Spirit Crusher" by Death. You know what I'm talking about.

Ted Nugent - Great White Buffalo



I think it's by Ted ... I know it's called Great White Buffalo and Ted is the only person who comes up with a song named that in a search.

If I was gonna call an all-time fave, I'd say the riff behind the solo in "Powerslave." That or the main riff to "Bonded By Blood."
