When I think of The Great Rock & Roll Riffs™ many come to mind: James Gang’s Funk #49Ted Nugent’s Stranglehold.  The openings of Can’t You Hear Me Knocking and The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair by The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, respectively. Obviously we have to include Walk This Way by Aerosmith. I think a strong case can also be made for Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy.

Even though it’s a publicly accessible site this blog is much more for me, personally, than for you, Dear Reader. Making these public is just a way for me to try to force myself to stay on track and keep this project up and running as long as I can.

But I will say, if you read this site and get nothing else out of it but the following, I will feel as though this project has been a success: The [what I think is] violin riff on Willie the Pimp deserves to be on that list as much as any of the ones I listed above.
