Top 11 Heavy Metal Guitar Riffs

I’m playing Crazy Train (Ozzy Osbourne), The Number of the Beast (Iron Maiden), Cowboys from Hell (Pantera), Electric Eye (Judas Priest), Angry Again (Megadeth), Still of the Night (Whitesnake), Running with the Devil (Van Halen), Enter Sandman (Metallica), Ace of Spades (Motörhead), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), Rock you like a Hurricane (Scorpions), plus Sweet Child o’ Mine (Guns N’ Roses)…. Hope you like it. Update April 24, 2012…. Thank you everyone for watching my video. I also appreciate the comments and questions people are posting, and sorry that I haven’t been responding to any… so here’s a few responses. I picked the top eleven guitar riffs largely based on what guitar backing tracks I can find on the internet and as well the music that I’m familiar with. I started playing guitar in the era of Classic Rock and back in those days, a lot of these songs could be considered ‘heavy metal’, although nowadays I don’t know what’s what with so much different types. (I may not call Sweet Child o’ Mine heavy metal either, but I threw it in at the end as an outro while the credits roll.) I am playing an Ibanez RG350DX through a Pod GX device which records straight to computer. The guitar track is then overlaid to the backing track and the mixdown is dubbed into the video. Yes, I made this video in a hotel room — I had to go for a couple of weeks of business in Asia and I took my guitar to do this in my spare time. I didn’t disturb anyone because it was all done using

    he isnt asian read the description “Many people remarked on the fact that I’m Asian, which is kinda amusing, but I’m into this kind of music because I grew up and live in Canada (Toronto).”
