Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple

Smoke on the Water Sheet Music

This was one of my first guitar riffs (nostalgic tear runs down my cheek), and often it’s the first riff I give to my beginning guitar students as it combines maximum simplicity with maximum foot-stomping fun. Even if you are an intermediate or advanced player, Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple is a must-have for your repertoire as it is one of the most legendary rock guitar riffs of all time. So crank up your distortion, assume your power stance and get ready to rock out to this head-banging masterpiece.

I have tabbed it out in three progressively difficult forms which you can check out here.
