Im sure that im not alone who agrees to the fact that the most memorable part of many rock songs is the riff. In many cases these riffs are fairly easy to play. Bands like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones all use riffs in some of their most recognizable songs.

A Riff is nothing but a repeating musical theme that forms a song's framework.Though they are most often
found in rock music, Latin, funk and jazz, classical music is also sometimes based on a simple riff. Riffs can be as simple as a tenor saxophone honking a simple, catchy rhythmic figure, or as complex as the riff-based variations in the head arrangements played by an Orchestra.

 building blocks of rock 'n' roll -- and there are many best lists' compiled by various musicial faternity groups ,
