    Nice list!

    I'd say the intro to Van Halen - Aint Talkin Bout Love is a pretty easy riff that sounds awesome too.

    For sure! It's one of those riffs (and guitar players) that is instantly recognizable within a couple of notes!

    Most Van Halen and 80s metal riffs would go into this category tbh

    Simple, yet awesome

    Yeah it's a skill all of it's own! Something like Still of the Night by Whitesnake is a great example of a simple yet awesome 80s riff.

    Your tag about attenuators made me laugh lol.
