Fun riifs to play

What's Hot
There’s something insanely fun about playing a cool riff, things like back in black, enter sandman, daytripper have a way of catching your ear. 
What riffs do you guys like to play?  doesn’t have to be technically demanding, just fun!

    Really depends on what I tend to be listening to around the time. Nowadays it's Iron Maiden so things like The Trooper, and trying to get the intro of Wasted Years down.

  • ABBA - "Does Your Mother Know" is really fun to play.

    Also heard a song I'd not heard in years other day..........Kansas "Fight Fire With Fire". That's real easy, but very fun and energetic song with a clever changes.
    Is this a vision of normality I see before my eyes?

    It is technically demanding (ish) but I LOVE playing the intro to Green Tinted Sixties Mind.

    Humans will swim in the sea even though there are many corpses in it.  They will not swim in a pool with a corpse in it. 
    Therefore all humans have a water / corpse ratio that is acceptable to them.

    But it's a bit of a bastard.

    Whenever I happen to have my guitar at work for a quick shot at it during my tea break I take great joy at quickly slipping into the most recogniseable single-string riff from Duelling Banjos whenever one of the half-wits from the warehouse or one of the brain-donor drivers walks in to ask me another stupid question.  Perhaps by this time next year it might have dawned on some of them that I am riduculing them.

    Wishing Well. 

    The best bassline ever too!

    Donald Trump has spoken movingly about 7-Eleven. It reminded him, he said, of the way Americans came together in 1941 after Pearl Necklace.
