In 1979, two years after the death of Elvis Presley, a gold vinyl appeared in record stores across America. The album was titled 'Reborn' and featured a masked man bedecked in an Elvis-style jumpsuit and trademark pompadour. His name was Orion - and his singing voice was eerily similar to the king of rock and roll.

Anyone who claims they've never dreamed of being a rock star is either a philistine or a liar. They are the closest thing to living gods we have: especially in the heady, hairy '70s era.

This is where the 100 Riffs video series comes in: it explains how to play no less than 100 classic guitar riffs - from Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water to ACDC's TNT. Best of all, there are options for one finger, open chord, power chord and barre chord players, which means novices and advanced players are equally well catered for.
