• Wikipedia - In music, a riff
is an ostinato; a repeated
chord progression,
pattern, or melody, often
played by rhythmic
instruments. The riff is the
base of the musical
composition. They are
most common in rock
music, funk, and jazz.

practice where musicians
take a good idea from the
past and make it their own
