Life In The Fast Lane can boast one of the greatest riffs of the 70's era.
The song was written by Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Don Henley and featured on the 1976 album Hotel California.
The riff is pure Joe Walsh, raw, casual, and totally bad ass.
I have been teaching this to my students for years now. Not only is it a great riff but the technique used to execute the riff is superb and a clear benefit for all guitarists.
