100 Famous Guitar Riffs

In case you missed this, in a promotional video for the Chicago Music Exchange, Alex Chadwick plays 100 famous guitar riffs in one take, a chronological history of rock ‘n’ roll.  The amazing part is that he recorded this in one take, seamlessly transitioning from one song to the next with an incredible amount of agility and grace.  After listening a few times you might believe that this could be one twelve minute song and not 100 riffs. Try not looking at the video while it plays and see how many riffs you can name. 

There’s more information on his equipment and a full list of the songs at And if you’re dying to hear the full version of the songs, here’s a Spotify playlist that has all of them.
