The Greatest Riffs.....ever

This list is of the most famous riffs in Rock/Blues History - ones that people from every corner of the world will know and recognise and put some of these artists on the map!
1Muddy Waters
Mannish Boy

Everybody has heard this riff, whether they have heard of Muddy Waters or not - it is the quintessential blues riff and covered to the max.
2Elvis
Heart Break Hotel

If you dont know this riff you must be the most sheltered person in the world!
3Deep Purple
Smoke on the water

This is such a simple riff, and one that every budding guitarist learns to play almost immediately!
4Free
Alright Now

Another simple one, but the raw simpleness makes it stick in the mind
5Black Sabbath
Paranoid

Not the best Sabbath song by any means, but this riff packs a punch and what a punch!
6Cream
Sunshine of Your Love

Jack Bruce discovered the riff playing an old double bass, immediately picked up his bass and played it on there. When Clapton heard it he decided he need not write anything and just replicated Bruce from there Sunshine of your love was born - amazingly simple!
7Motorhead
Ace of Spades

Like Black Sabbath its raw power gets you hooked from the first line
8The Knack
My Sharona

Awful band, but this riff is another world famous hit (and i had to include something else from the 80s to balance the list abit)
9Nirvana
Smells Like Teen Spirit

Lets face it, the song defined a generation, brought a shift in rock music and made Nirvana the biggest band in the world. All from a slightly altered Boston riff!
10AC/DC
Highway to Hell

Well can you name me another riff that is more well known and not listed above cos i was running out of ideas...
