I’ve pondered this topic a while and looked at some other lists of awesome guitar riffs and guitar licks. Our favorites may not be yours, nor yours ours, so we’ll have to agree to just form a list together. If you’re new at this and wondering which guitar riffs and guitar licks should you learn, we’d say learn them all.
Here’s the deal, within all great guitar riff and guitar licks is knowledge and experience. There’s always a take away; eat the meat and spit out the bones sort of thing.
But, you’ll for sure find something you like about each of these classic guitar riffs and guitar licks. That is unless you’re so young and / or arrogant that you can’t be taught. Hopefully that’s not the case.
