My Sweet Lord- I didn't mention it?

My Sweet Lord is one of my favourites to play. Almost like therapy to execute that first bend, and hear it as well. 8)

Take care,

Casey

I've always been rather fond of the intro the Black Sabbath's The Writ (Sabotage). Not just the riff, but the whole intro.

Guess I can chime in with these:

Pride and Joy- SRV
Texas Flood-SRV
Mary Had a Little Lamb- SRV

Notice a pattern yet?

Walk This Way-Aerosmith
Fast as You-Dwight Yokam
Guitars Cadillacs- Dwight Yokam
You Shook Me All Night Long-ACDC

I could go on forever but those are enough for now.

As you my or may not know i've been around the forum for a good few weeks, playing for about 3 months ish, learning rythem more than anything first, doing ok i think, i've been trying my hand a bit at doing some intro's to get my fingers moving around, i've learnt Back in Black-ACDC and sweet child o mine-Guns n Roses, just wondered what all you guys tried for your first riffs and if you pulled it off, hints and tips welcome as usual. thanks 8)
My favourite intro riff has always been the start of Lay It Down by Ratt.

I've told myself that when I can do it well (I'm not even going to attempt it until I get some basics down first) I'm rewarding myself with a new guitar (yeah, I bought one of those "starter kits"). :D

I don't have a fav, but I like the Blitzkreig Bop riff

Too many to list, I've seen quite a few I really like here.

One that hasn't been mentioned (or at least I didn't see it) was Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin. Super easy, but one of the heaviest sounding riffs ever. I like a few Zep intros like Rock N' Roll, The Ocean and Dancing Days. Jimmy Page is the all-time master of the monster riff.

I too love Long Cool Woman by the Hollies, absolutely beautiful.

Sunshine of Your Love has been overplayed, but is still a great riff and difficult to really make it sound right.

I also liked Aqualung, and Cross-eyed Mary, Locomotive Breath on the same album.

The old You Really Got Me by the Kinks was an awesome riff.

I love Hey Bulldog by the Beatles. Man, that was a great riff nobody ever talks about. In fact, I'm gonna post a clip. :D

The Beatles could Rock as hard as anybody anytime they chose too.

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

Well, I have to throw my Rush 2-cents in...

Freewill - basically just the c-major scale - just relatively fast.

Also, Limelight is pretty cool and not too difficult.

My favorite would really have to be an outro, the one from Queen's We Will Rock You, which sort of functions as the intro to We Are The Champions.
