I know I 'missed' a lot of awesome songs and probably agree with the song you are about to mention but let me clearify a little bit on how this video came to be: I came across some oldish really fun riffs, and wanted to make a video about that. I noticed a lot of em were played in the key of A, or E with powerchords, the I-iii-IV or the I-IV-V chords, and some other similarities. The list grew and grew, and I finally transformed it into just badass riffs, because I didn't really know a better name :) But sure, keep the suggestions coming!

Is it just me, or do the riffs get lamer and less less interesting as we get to the 90s and beyond? Great playing Paul.

Awesome playing Paul. Love your guitar (and colour finish) but never heard of the maker. I’ve been wanting a tele and not good enough player to worry about what model, so it’s pretty much down to looks / what is yours? It is super cool
Alex Rogers
Big Eyed Beans from Venus is the most badass riff there is.
