Easy Guitar Riffs.

The title says it all,easy guitar riffs are are just that.

Easy to listen too and must feel great to those musicians who find the the licks and rythes to go with the killer back beat. Thier are many examples and everyone will have thier particular favorite.

I'm open to suggestions for easy guitar riffs for inclusion in this Hub. Pop them in the comments section below. Thanks Malc.

Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple (1972)

Layla - Derek and the Dominoes (1970)

Aqualung - Jethro Tull (1971)

Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin (1969) ... oow yes like that.

Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin (1969)

Iron Man - Black Sabbath (1970)... reminds me of camping out listening to a crappy cassette player in the dark,in the rain and the wind not helping by trying to reposition our tent in the river near by.

Paranoid - Black Sabbath (1970) .. great stuff

Sweet Emotion - Aerosmith (1975)

All Right Now - Free (1970)..sing along everyone.

Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix (1967)

Day Tripper - Beatles (1965)

Would seem some great stuff was been played by in 1960's and 70's

Your own favorite easy guitar riffs?

The ones above are obviousley just a tiny fraction of the guitar riffs in the whole world of music. You will no doubt have your particular favorite and there are many to chose from.

Another excellent band that comes to mind was T.Rex. Just a thought in passing.

For those interersted in taking things a little further and have a go, see the link below...

    Learning a guitar chord is all very fine but once you know the chord you really should practice and practice. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect.

Err.. Rainbow - Riche Blackmore? I think it goes..

I'm a wheel, I'm a wheel I can roll, I can feel And you can't stop me turning 'Cause I'm the sun, I'm the sun I can move, I can run But you'll never stop me burning * Come down with fire Lift my spirit higher Someone's screaming my name Come and make me holy again I'm the man on the silver mountain I'm the man on the silver mountain I'm the day, I'm the day I can show you the way And look I'm right beside you I'm the night, I'm the night I'm the dark and the light With eyes that see inside you

* x 2 Just look at me and listen I'm the man, the man, give you my hand Come down with fire Lift my spirit higher I'm the man on the silver mountain I'm the man on the silver mountain I'm the night the light The black and the white The man on the silver mountain.

Ok, I looked it up. Malc.
