Riff's

In response to shutter's "whats your favorite" post that largely aimed at solo's and lead breaks. What would be your favorite riff (the "tune" that usually but not always opens a number and is continued throughout the music)
Probably one of the most recognisable and well known is Richie Valens "La Bamba" (which is actually played on two guitars)
But there must be hundreds of others.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Fleetwood Mac - The Chain
Guess its not a great surprise coming from me!
I'm hoping that it gets resurrected for Formula 1 GP coverage now that BBC have the rights again.
