Favorite guitar riff/lick?

Mine’s defo the “Voodoo Chile” riff and lick. To me it’s sounding like two people arguing kinda, a bit aggressive and responsive blues as I would call it. Since the majority of you have no idea what it is I recorded a short bit of voodoo chile in “my style” – http://vocaroo.com/i/s0MSHs9C5XGt

This riff is a Muddy Waters inspired lick from the song “Rollin’ Stone” which is an early 50’s rock influenced riff. Voodoo Chile is a Jimi Hendrix song from 1968, pretty much a more aggressive and “rockified” version. So yeah this riff is soon to be 70 years old, but I still think it’s great even today, and in another 70 years too.

Original Jimi Hendrix recording can be found here: https://open.spotify.com/track/0auKlivXpm76wR63mMJ3pR

So what’s your favorite riff n licks? Any genre of course.
