The History of Rock and Roll by Riff

9 Comments

I found this remarkable video of the history of rock and roll by guitar riff (in one take!):

He is missing a few of my favorites though. I offer up:

Jumping Jack Flash, The Rolling Stones:

China Grove, The Doobie Brothers:

and
American Woman,  The Guess Who

I am going to be rocking out today…..

  1. I am sorry to say but American Woman was by a Canadian band Guess Who not Jimi Hendrix
    Great riff all the same

  2. Well, since this discussion has run its course, I have replaced the offending video with one from The Guess Who. We’ll let the “Hendrix” version continue to be a mystery……
