Best riff
This is probably a hard question and the thread has also probably been thought of before but, what is people's favourte guitar riff of all time? something really brutal, or soft, or catchy whatever, just something that sticks in your mind.

For me, the one that does it is the second riff (the one that starts at 0:25) of "Deliverance" by Opeth.

\m/ fuckin brutal

maybe the opening of One by Metallica or maybe Iron Man by Black Sabbath the main riff.

Solo it would be the 1st electirc solo on One by Metallica or an Elvenking solo on the song Disappearing Sands

I love many riffs but the best is the guitar solo of Sodom - My Atonement.
also the last riff of Kataklysm - Maelström.

i like the riffs from opeth's blackwater park, as well as the opening riff to deliverance. slayers raining blood is full of awesome riffs. i dont about a best riff, thats a toughie. give me a few weeks to think on it.

The 2nd Riff/outro to Chapter For Transforming Into A Snake by Nile. Fuckin' Brilliant.

Right now it would have to be the intro to Judas Priest's Electric Eye.

opeth-black water park (two of them in there)
gorguts-with their flesh, he'll create

I really like the acoustic parts of 'Unas Slayer of the Gods' By Nile.
The first 25 seconds of 'Serpent Headed Mask' By Nile has some cool riffs aswell.
'Sarcophagous' by who else, Nile, Has some awesome riffs in it. The main riff is the best.
And 'Execration Text' By NILE has the coolest little riff about 15 seconds in.
'Frantic Disembowelment' By Cannibal Corpse has some of the best riffs in it too.

I'm going through a NILE FUCKING KICKS ASS phase.

Seve420 2004-06-08 00:45

There are proabably too many great riffs to have a best and it was near impossible to narrow off a list of favourites but who gives a fuck?

Pig Destroyer - Naked Trees (all of them)
Pig Destroyer - Mapplethorpe Grey (0:34)
Carcass - Corporal Jigsore Quandary (4:02)
Opeth - Face Of Melinda (4:38)
Opeth - The Leper Affinity (pretty much all of them)
Opeth - Bleak (0:20)

I really don't like that album, but I will admit that that song's opening riff is bad ass.
