RE: What's your favourite guitar riff or solo?

solo: 

Rush/Hemispheres/La Villa Strangiato: basically the whole song. For me it shows that Alex Lifeson is one of rock's most underappreciated guitar players.

 

rif:

 

OSI/Blood/Stockholm: starting at 4:50. best riff ever heard.

RE: What's your favourite guitar riff or solo?

I don't like Franz Ferdinand. They're just a mediocre modern rock/pop band but this one song of theirs has a really catchy guitar riff in the middle which is great. Listen to the bit from 0.46 - 1.13

I'm amazed that nobody has mentioned Hendrix, Cream or Peter Green - perhaps it's a generational thing?

Clapton and Hendrix have been mentioned I believe.

RE: What's your favourite guitar riff or solo?

I missed the Hendrix reference then.  I saw a reference to Layla, which is a great tune, but hard to see how this would come close to the top in the Clapton canon.

Chris

PS  "Guitar heroes at the BBC" is on BBC4 from time to time and is really worth watching.

RE: What's your favourite guitar riff or solo?

In terms of tracks/riffs:

Hendrix - All along the watchtower

Cream (Clapton) - Spoonful from Wheels of Fire live album

Green - Black Magic Woman from whatever Fleetwood Mac collection you may have.

Chris

PS To name-drop, I met Green and Clapton in 196x when my best friend's dad was redecorating John Mayall's house.  Sadly I didn't know who they were at the time!

Maybe, but then  no one has mentioned Vivaldi yet, so guess you could be right

Good call. Thunderstruck is one of my all time favourite songs.

Another good call. 'All Along the Watchtower' is a classic.

I also like 'Voodoo Child', 'Purple Haze' and 'Foxey Lady' by Hendrix too.

Jimmy Page - Dazed And Confused Seattle 75. A mere 45 minutes long. Genius. Otherwise, Since I've Been Loving You.

Richie Blackmore - Catch The Rainbow, Nagoya 1978. Otherwise, Child In Time.

Dave Gilmore - Money 9th May 1977 Oakland.  Otherwise, Comfortably Numb.

Tony Iommi - Heaven And Hell Sao Paulo 2009. But for riffs, all of them!!!

Brian Tatler - Am I Evil. Actually that's 5 solos.
