Beatles Songs With Great Guitar Riffs

Beatles Songs With Great Guitar Riffs by Jackson Weinheimer

While many of the other classic rock legends of the 1960s like The Who (Pete Townshend), The Rolling Stones (Keith Richards), Cream (Eric Clapton), Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page), & Jimi Hendrix are well known for their riff based rock songs, The Beatles are usually considered a guitar riff based band.

And there's a good reason for that, The Beatles wrote all kinds of different songs with all kinds of different arrangements. But they did sometimes write songs with some really awesome guitar riffs too. And what follows are some of the best of those songs.

"Day Tripper" - What a legendary guitar riff! It's one of those riffs where you instantly know what it is as soon as you hear it.

"Paperback Writer" - Here's a tip: Listen closely to the harmony vocals. You may be surprised to realize what they are singing.

"I Feel Fine" - One of The Beatles best early singles. And that's saying quite a lot. The riff in this song is almost as instantly recognizable as the one in "Day Tripper."

"In My Life" - This isn't a "rock n roll" song and not the type of song people usually think of when they're talking about riffing on the guitar but I think the riff in this song is really beautiful and totally timeless.

"Birthday" - This is a song that gets it's share of "hate" from some Beatles fans but it does have some pretty cool guitar riffs in it.

"And Your Bird Can Sing" - This song features some really cool guitar parts as well as some delicious lyrics and great vocals. The Beatles were pretty darn good.
