    Default Riffs riffs riffs, i love me some riffs

    Ok, these are not blues, but hey, rock evolved from blues, so I'm hoping some of you will enjoy them as much as I did playing them these last couple weeks.

    First some classics from CCR.

    I was reading something about Robben Ford recently.
    Someone asked him, "How do you come up with new riffs?"
    He said something like, "I don't play riffs...I play MUSIC."
    It comes off as snobby, but it's something to think about.
    There's wisdom there.
    As for CCR...maybe "hooks" is a better term.
    Fogerty is one of my heroes and one of the kings of the amazing hook.
    When the guitar hook is so critical to the song that you sing it like it's a lyric...THAT'S a song!
    Like when "Satisfaction" comes on the radio, the first thing you sing is the guitar hook.

    I agree totally, i guess we all just generalize when we say riffs
