Bass riffs

Many songs are built on a bass riff that is repeated through the whole song. Here are a few examples.

Eric Clapton (The Yardbirds): I wish you would

One single bass riff carries the entire song.

I Wish You Would

Another Eric Clapton riff (well, the rhythm guitar in Yardbirds was not played by Eric Clapton, so it it probably not correct to call it an Eric Clapton riff ...) is Got To Hurry
