Favorite Top Ten Rory Guitar Riffs

Postby capo » 19 Apr 2015, 02:54

Got this idea from a Youtube video I saw featuring the Top Fifty Ritchie Blackmore Riffs. I thought about narrowing it done to three, but Taste alone would cover that! Just to be clear, a riff is a chord progression or series of notes that is thematic and is the main musical idea of a song and is repeated throughout, as opposed to a lick, that is just some notes that pop up in a song. So lets see everybodys Top Ten Rory Riffs. In chronological order, mine are..
Same Old Story
Whats Going On
Walk On Hot Coals
Cradle Rock
Moonchild
Shadow Play
Last Of The Independants
Philby
Bad Penny
Seems To Me.
Its tough to just pick ten, but lets get some people who never post to contribute their picks, along with the usual suspects :mrgreen:

Well, so far only eight brave souls have put down their ten favorite Rory riffs. At this point, Whats Going On is the most popular agreed upon
in common,with 6 mentions. Followed by 5 mentions each for Bad Penny, Shadowplay, and Moonchild. Lets see more people show there hands. Lots of interesting one offs, like Tibbierocks The Watcher, full of great riffs. Keep them coming.
