In my opinion they did.

Here are three classic examples.







Others will disagree. So what would be your choice / choices ?

Love "Gimme Shelter," but all time would be Stevie Ray Vaughn "Pride and Joy," and/or Z.Z. Top "La Grange." "Lot a nice girls there..."

Born and bred Texas girl here! lol

I don't think there's a right answer.

There are so many awesome guitar intros to choose from.

Smoke on water
Thunder kiss 65
I like Metallica's intros on Lightning and Puppets
Iron man
Welcome to the jungle

Just too many.

Yeah they're brilliant can't deny that, another is Joe Bonamassa (hay baby) is good, especially with decent ear/headphones.

Not a big stones fan, but i hear you. these are very rememberable intros. I got a Rare stones album bootleg called "necrophilia" which has a alternate version of Street fighting man on it. It's different and pretty cool i might add.

It is track #10 "Pay Your Dues" Starts @ 23:50 in video below.

The Stones are only enjoyable with Vietnam war era movies as a soundtrack. I think Boston is the band who mastered intros, with guitar or any other instrument.

JJF was good, more like the early Stones but more in tune
as a guitar intro it was actually a couple of acoustics with different tunings and probably a little enduced overdrive soundwise. Bill Wyman says he produced the guitar riff on the piano.

I did like their version of, "I wanna be your man" released just a short while before The Beatles, shades of JJF in the intro there soundwise, and Wymans frantic bass and sound...( I had to learn that bass at the time for a cover playing out), which turned out intuitive really, but very effective. I won't sit on best guitar opening riffs though, there are so many.

Not likely. Being a fan of longevity, I have the give the title of guitar hero to Ron Wood with Kieth getting the honorable mention.
50+ years and still going, they have mastered the blues riffs.

Great early Sabbath with Ozzy for sure.
I am partial to this one with Ronnie James Dio.
And Dio and Tony Iommi wrote it the very first time they sat down for a jam session.

If we're crowning "Guitar Hero'. . . . I'd have to go with Carlos Santana
