    Favorite guitarists and their riffs

    So who is everyones top 3 guitarists and what riffs or pieces of theirs are your favorite?

    My top 3
    Tom Morello
    Adam Jones
    Jimi Hendrix

    I think for Tom Morello my favorite riff would be Sleep Now In The Fire. Simple but fun as hell to play

    For Adam Jones my favorite guitar part for him would be the live version of Push It off the Salival album. It's just extremely intimate and soulful.

    Hendrix, gotta be All Along The Watchtower. His cover is epic and I really think that was his best work.

    Honorable mention goes to Mike Akerfeldt of Opeth he is a hell of a guitarist.

    So what's everyone else's picks

    I think Black Dog may be one of the coolest riffs ever. That's the song that got me into Zepplin. It was a tough choice between Hendrix's Voodoo Chile or All Along The Watch Tower for me.
    What are your thoughts on Clapton doing cell phone commercials? You think he sold out?

    John Frusciante - So many to pick from... right now I'd say Quixoticelixer (both halves, but especially the last minute or two), but depending on the day I could say Venice Queen, Turn It Again, or Don't Forget Me.

    Mike Einzinger - last half of Earth to Bella Part 2, but special mention to Sick Sad Little World and to Pendulous Threads.

    Tom Morello - so many great riffs. My favorite is probably Show Me How to Live.

    Frusciante does have alot to pick from. Wish he was still with the band. I think Under The Bridge is his greatest. Been my all time favorite song since I was 5
