I`ve been playing the violin about 8 years and I also play the guitar and piano. I really like rock music and have been learning lots of violin solos and riffs by ear from bands like Green Day, Red Hot Chilli Peppers etc. So I was wondering if anyone can think of any songs with kick ass violin riffs?!

"When Your`e Around" by The Richies sounds like it would be something you`re looking for.

Dunno if it would be what your looking for but have you looked into folk? The fiddle plays an integral part in the music, if you are interseted I suggest Fairport Convention they fall into a kind of folk/rock category, hope it helps :-)

Evanescence has a song called WHISPER, which had a REALLY intence violin/orchestra interlude, as well as a really powerful choral and orchestra ending. Unfurtunately, the riff isnt included in the sheet music, but if you would like the notation, just email me! I found out the notes by listening to the song by my piano, and just figuring them out 1 by 1. lemme know!!

If the song has any melodic complexity, it`s a candidate for violin.... Think Beatles, Eagles, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Zepplin,
