    kinda strange question. lol
    like asking "what is your favorite sentence" or "what is your favorite 6 letter word"
    here is a link to a video i love with tens of thousands of riffs in it that i love mostly equally.

    but seriously ,what is your favorite sentence?
    here is another video with ten thousand riffs i love fairly equally

    and another ten thousand riffs i love equally as the others

    To this day, the solos in Van Halen's Ain't Talkin' Bout Love makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up - As does the guitar in Floyd's Shine on you Crazy Diamond and Dogs.

    Incidentally, the Van Halen track also has a great riff....

    Once I heard that intro riff in the Pink Cream 69 song, I was hooked!
    Lay It Down also one of my favorite intro riffs.

    Mine would be Van Halen's - Eruption as most will say that one takes it. But as of recently Van Halen's - Best of both worlds has
    been up there lately.
    I also like the Larry Carlton and Steve Lukather - Room 335.
