Iconic riffs from the 60's

Post by MisterLutherMan » August 6th, 2018, 10:23 am

Hi there,

This guy shows 3 'iconic' riffs from the 60's; Daytripper, Foxy, and Pretty Woman.

I'm wondering, what other riffs from the 60's do you guys think are great? This could be a good source for digging up some great tunes.

What more do you want?

The Day Tripper riff is godly! I love it so much. I love Satisfaction a lot too.

The simplest riff in the world to play: House of the Rising Sun, by Eric Burdon and the Animals.

Paint It Black, by the Rolling Stones.
I Got A Line On You by Spirit (I'm biased, as Spirit is one of my favorite bands of that era).
Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry (and the Beach Boys many take offs on this).

I can list more...
Duke Ellington said it best: "If it sounds good, it IS good!"
