Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Child has 'best guitar riff'

Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Child has been named the greatest guitar riff of all time, 41 years after it was recorded, in a poll by website Music Radar. It beat Guns N' Roses song Sweet Child O' Mine, which came second in the poll. Music Radar's editor, Mike Goldsmith, called Hendrix the "undisputed heavyweight champion of rock guitar". Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love, Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water and Layla by Derek and the Dominos also featured in the top five. Riffs from older songs seem to be more popular, as only two from the past decade made it into the top 20
