I was listening to Anthrax's Sound of White Noise album and it struck me how many awesome riffs just use 1 note, or one chord !

Take Potter's Field, for example. Riffing starts at 0:58



What powerful riffs can you think of that use just 1 note or one chord ?

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.
