Cool and unique riffs/licks
 
Sometimes you hear songs that seem boring, and then, out of nowhere comes a riff or lick so cool that it finds it's way straight into your heart and just stays there. Has that ever happened to you? Share it!

At about 1:14...


Please tell me if there's alredy a thread for this, I might have overlooked some of the search results.

:laughing: I feel old just mentioning Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple. It has to be one of the all time rock/guitar riffs.

This is better though:


Notice the similarity? :)

I could listen to this song every day for the rest of my life, especially this performance:

8:06 til the end of the song. It's been stuck in my head for weeks. Fantastic.

That was epic. I'm interested to hear more from this group. Please post more.

Chris Squire
 


The accenting saxophone and keys are nice.

Isbjørn 05-18-2013 10:45 AM

I hope you're not sick of all my Queen talk by now. There's more to come.

0:55

That riff just always gets stuck in my head.

Isbjørn 05-23-2013 01:02 PM



Even though the rest song is boring (no chorus?), the opening riff is great, yet simple. I love it.

Plankton 05-23-2013 01:30 PM

Starting at 3:05. What a groove man.

Dark Horse 05-23-2013 02:34 PM



At 0:58. It feels like you're being thrown around in the middle of a storm

OldManWinter 05-26-2013 11:31 AM

Not sure if any of y'all have heard of Vildhjarta or Northlane but they have some of the most unique riffs and rhythmic patterns I've ever heard.

jackhammer 05-27-2013 06:56 PM


Every single riff from 2:20 onwards. Not bad for nearly 25 years old.

jackhammer 05-27-2013 07:06 PM


2:42 onwards. Outside of Dave Lombardo, probably the finest example of drumming and riffs in the extreme Metal genre.

Stephen 05-27-2013 10:46 PM

Opening of this song is pretty awesome.




Although I guess it's not Rock & Metal? :o:

ThatBlueFluffyDude 05-28-2013 01:31 PM

This song was brilliant when I first heard it, still awesome!


Isbjørn 05-28-2013 02:03 PM

The Hives are pretty good. They're bringing raw rock 'n' roll back into the music world, and they're doing their job well.



I don't care if everyone on this forum has heard it already, the main riff is how a rock riff should sound.

I feel like The Hives are very Under rated, they're absolutely brilliant live and their songs are a breathe of catchy fresh air compared to many things being played around at the moment

LOLPOCALYPSE 05-28-2013 08:41 PM

I've always really liked the opening riff in this song

Isbjørn 06-11-2013 12:34 PM



Go to 1:20

Plankton 06-11-2013 12:46 PM

I grabbed my bass the other night and played along with this. I cannot, for the life of me, get this riff outa my head now:
