Listen to the Music: The Top Five Doobie Brothers Guitar Moments
From "Black Water" to "China Grove," our guide to the Doobies' top five guitar moments.
"Long Train Runnin'"
From The Captain and Me (1973)
Once again, behold one of the most recognizable funky guitar riffs — ever.
This is one of those "muscle memory" riffs I — like thousands of other guitarists — whip out when checking out a new guitar. Nine times out of 10, it makes the guitar sound great. The riff, with its clever double hammer-on from a full barre chord, is perfect for guitar students and anyone who just wants to sound cool.
Honorable mention goes out to the fine bass part, especially during the outro, courtesy of bassist Tiran Porter. It's yet another example of "simple but effective."
