Jimmy Page also had so many great riffs, it's hard to pick just one, I always thought the riff in " All Right Now " by "Free" was the quintessential rock riff.

I'm not a big Rolling Stones fan - I always preferred the Who in that rivalry - but I do think the riff that opens "Start Me Up" is about perfect.

Adrian, since classical music was mentioned, that's all the encouragement that I need to point out one of my favorite guitar CDs with the wild-and-crazy John Williams, although I suspect that this isn't what you had in mind by "riffs". Note the beginning of the Asturias sample Amazon gives.

Yes, you're right John, I was selfishly thinking along "rock" based riffs, but every genre's welcome. I'm glad you added the John Williams link as I'd not have heard of him otherwise...I just checked him out, he's clearly very talented. \:\)

My favourite? So many... Clapton, White Room, various from Steve How from any of the 3rd 4th or 5th Yes albums, Any from a number of Pink Floyd albums, anything from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd... Led Zeppelin albums (his playing on the first is my favourite), Niel Young Out of the Blue, Bruce Cocburn Barrel House Rock, various stuff by Jerry garcia (damn he was versitile), Hendrix Voodoo Child. Geez I could go on.

Edit: Oooh! There's that guy that Randy Bachman talks about all the time. He did all sorts of amazing stuff including classical on an electric guitar. Dang, whats his name?!

Help on the Way Slipknot - Blues for Alah is a great example of Garcia's ability. He did everything from Bluegrass to country to rock and he did it all really well.

Awesome album art too. I'm still pissed my brother got rid of this one!

The guitar riff that starts Iron Maiden's Wasted Years has always stuck with me. It's not difficult or very "guitar wanky" but it's always stuck in my head.
