Who do you think is the riff master ?

For me it's Angus Young and Keith Richards.

in my opinion, the top 5 metal riff masters would be :

1- james hetfield ( metallica)
2- dave mustaine ( megadeth,metallica)
3- dimebag darrel ( pantera,damage plan)
4- max cavalera ( sepultura,nailbomb,soulfly )
5- chuck schuldiner ( death )

Tony Iommi and Eddie Cochran. It seems like everything is based on what they did..............

Hendrix, of course. He changed EVERYTHING. He may not have been an Earthling.

Buddy Guy. Is there anything this cat CAN'T play? He's 'been there, and done that'. Hendrix used to cop HIS licks.

the Three Kings: BB, Freddie and Albert.

When I think "Human Riff" I always think Keith Richards.

I'll second Jimmy Page, and of course Tony Iommi. Hendrix wrote a good one or two. :smile: Agreed on the Young Brothers, too.

I was a big Joe Perry fan back in my school days - he wrote a whack of 70's classics. Mark Farner came up with some great ones. The original Alice Cooper band's Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton wrote a bunch of my favourites and Paul Kossoff deserves to be included for "All Right Now" alone.

Tony Iommi, Zakk Wylde, Dime, EVH (like, pre-1984... though that album is OK) and Randy Rhoads!

I rarely listen to anything that doesn't have them jammin' on it, lol. Little Zeppelin, Metallica (anything before The Black Album), Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Stump, Paul Gilbert and that's about it, lol.
