5 best riffs for Lars Frederiksen

Kiss – Parasite
“Probably one of the first riffs I heard that had a huge impact on me was Kiss’s Parasite. I was born in the 71st, and for the first time I heard Kiss somewhere in the 75th. I remember how powerful this riff and the whole song was. It was very rude and that was probably why when I got older I started making such music. This opening riff opened my ears to music. And he first comes to mind when it comes to guitar influences.

This song was written by Ace Freilly and I wanted to be like him. I liked his solo, songs, voice. I liked the way he played the guitar. Perhaps that’s why I played Les Paul for so long. Subconsciously, it has always been with me. Of course, when you are young and open to everything, the guys who go on stage with flashes of fire, make-up, are simply stunning. ”

AC / DC – “Gone Shootin’ ”
“Another riff that has had a huge impact on me and still remains one of my favorites. This riff is almost like a rhythm progression. I always considered myself a rhythm guitar player, and in my leading riffs I try to do something similar to him. Powerage is pretty much the perfect record. There are a lot of great songs. Ramones did a few, KISS did too, but AC / DC has a lot more. Nevertheless, Powerage is my favorite. I swallowed this record as a child. This is a little unfair in terms of choice because AC / DC is the most riff band that has ever existed. ”

G.B.H. – “Give Me Fire”
“Despite the fact that this is just a simple progression of three chords, this song very much influenced me as a guitarist. Jock Blit’s style, tonality, distortion and everything in this song influenced me. I was about 10 or 11 years old when this track came out. And to hear all this from the speakers was crazy for me. He just pinches these open chords, while the drums and bass come to the fore – I don’t know if this is considered a riff, but this is the guitar music that definitely opened my eyes. ”

The Last Resort – “Freedom”
“While I heard The Last Resort, I already heard Black Sabbath and it wasn’t quite for me, because then I was already sitting on punk and Oi. But “Freedom” begins in a very melancholy and intimidating and somewhat similar way to Sabbath song. This creepy minor, which is pretty cool for such music. They were a kind of Black Sabbath skinhead – the only way I can describe it. And their style definitely influenced my game. ”

Motörhead – “I’ll Be Your Sister”
“I have to pay tribute to Eddie Clark and Phil Campbell. For me Motörhead is definitely a riff band. Most people would call Sabbath, but for me it’s Motörhead. “I’ll Be Your Sister” has always been one of my favorite riffs. Almost everything you can do as a guitarist is in this riff – and it is done with taste. To this day, I try to do the same by playing the guitar. Eddie Clark has always been the one I wanted to emulate. It seems to me that you can understand him as a person, through his game. It was the best rock and roll, the best heavy metal and the best punk all rolled into one. He was a fucking God. ”
