Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash had a long interview with Spanish VOS’ Diego Tabachnik and revealed his all-time favorite riffs.

Slash said that there are many riffs that he can count but he didn’t want to choose any of his.

Diego Tabachnik:

“I confess that when I was 12 years old and I first heard the intro of Sweet Child O’Mine, the guitar intro blew my mind. What is your favorite riff, both yours and others?”

Slash:

“I would not be able to choose any of mine, it’s not possible. But others riff … (thinks), there are many! I remember the Stones’ Gimme Shelter that had a big effect on me when I was very small, Whole lotta love was another one, from Zeppelin, Foxy Lady and Purple Haze from Hendrix.

And over the years there were always riffs that I think are amazing fuckin ‘. Back in the saddle and Walk This Way from Aerosmith, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath from Black Sabbath has that little section in the middle that I always thought was one of the coolest things there was … there’s another Jack White riff that came out some years and I think it’s great, although I do not remember the name. I could name you guitar riffs for days!
