So I was cruising around the web and found this link:

Greatest Guitar Riffs

I agree with alot of them, however I must indeed include a couple of others.

1) Jimi Hendrix (My guitar hero, plus it doesn't hurt that he was stationed in Ft. Campbell) L'il Wing. I've never heard ANYONE match this amazing riff.

2) Oh come on! How can they not mention Hotel California by the Eagles? That is one of those riffs that you wish would never stop.

3) Jimi Hendrix again. 12 string acoustic Hear My Train A'comin. It's so amazing it's sick! I can play a mean version of it on my 12 string, but I aint no Jimi.

4) Joe Walsh - The Confessor

Oh by the way did I mention Jimi? Dead 30 years and people are still trying to copy him.

I'd love to hear your votes!

Buckethead

&

Frank Zappa

would be two that get my vote there so under-rated as artists it's unbelieveable especially when you listen to the raw talents in their works.

Good to see Chuck Berry finally getting recognition for his work though.
