Day Tripper was the first "sophisticated" guitar riff I ever learned so I'm very partial to that riff. But I'm also of the opinion that it's derivative of Pretty Woman. I Feel Fine is also a great riff, but comes from someone else's work. Ticket To Ride and Paperback may be their most influential riffs, meaning I have heard them re-purposed most often over the years. Some of their greatest riffs are their most subtle. Devil in Her Heart, Dear Prudence, Lucy in The Sky, Mother Nature's Son, In My Life, Here Comes the Son. All absolutely signature. Frankly, I could go on all day. But I'm gonna cast my vote for "other" based on seeing McCartney's recent tributes to George. After opening Something w his ukulele and little vaudevillian style rendition, the lights come up and the band joins him w that monster riff and it's absolutely chill bumps inducing. Talk about beauty in simplicity.
