Would it be the opening chord to Hard Day's Night? I'm not sure of the name of the group - they were sort of obscure one-hit wonders, if I remember correctly................

Here's a quicky that, sadly, sounds nothing like the original song - it's like a fish out of water (not a clue, by the way).

Not a band, a solo performer with some very fast fingers

Eric Johnson's awesome "Lonely in the Night" is the only tune I can think of based on the clues, but I'm not hearing the riff there ... :(

For most of his career, this guitarist played a slightly modded '59 LP, which he got from a member of Fleetwood Mac

The song is from the band's youthful debut album ... don't let one cross your path.
