If I were ask you right now what the most iconic guitar riff of all time is, my guess is that you and a slew of rock fans will immediately say Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple. Not many fans will argue that the riff to Smoke On The Water is one of the (if not THE) most iconic riffs in all of music, literally.
Since it’s dawning, the riff has become arguably the most overplayed guitar riff in history…Advertisement
Typically, when someone decides that they want to learn how to play guitar, Smoke On The Water ends up being the first riff that they learn. Nevertheless, it is a great riff, and for that matter, a great song which most people don’t care to recognize. It’s iconic, pure and simple.
There’s a phenomenal street performer by the name of Marcello Calabrese who one day set up his guitar and amp to perform in front of a crowd of spectators and shredded an incredible solo over this iconic song. Once he did, people immediately broke out the cameras and started filming! Watch for yourself!
