100 Riffs by Chicago Music Exchange

Posted by    |    July 10th, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Playing a 1958 Fender Stratocaster, Alex Chadwick created a video of 100 guitar riffs in one take showcasing a chronological history of rock n’ roll.  The Chicago Music Exchange lists out the music we presume was selected by Chadwick.  Each song is a great one, and we particularly enjoyed rediscovering songs such as Pictures of Matchstick Men by Camper van Beethoven which can be found at the 7:10 mark.  According to the Hufffington Post, Chadwick admitted to MSNBC that he did not complete the 100 riffs in one take.  While the concept is not a new one, we tip our hat to Chadwick for creating this fine work and for the music selection.  Buddy Holly  played a 1958 Fender Stratocaster hours before the 1959 plane crash that took his life.  This article is also well written on the topic.
