Hendrix's Voodoo Child is more commonly known as Voodoo Chile
Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Child has been named the greatest guitar riff of all time, 41 years after it was recorded, in a poll by website Music Radar.
It beat Guns N' Roses song Sweet Child O' Mine, which came second in the poll.
Music Radar's editor, Mike Goldsmith, called Hendrix the "undisputed heavyweight champion of rock guitar".
Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love, Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water and Layla by Derek and the Dominos also featured in the top five.
Riffs from older songs seem to be more popular, as only two from the past decade made it into the top 20.
TOP FIVE ROCK RIFFS
1. Voodoo Child - Jimi Hendrix
2. Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
3. Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
4. Smoke On The Water - Deep Purple
5. Layla - Derek and the Dominos
They were Muse's Plug In Baby, at 11, and The White Stripes' grimy Seven Nation Army at 15.
"No surprise given both Bellamy and White share - or have inherited - Hendrix's unique blend of experimental instincts and white-knuckle showmanship," said Mr Goldsmith.
"Above all though, our poll seems to indicate one thing - in 2009 classic rock still rules."
The bone-crunching AC/DC classic Back In Black landed at number six, followed by Metallica's Enter Sandman and the chiming riff of The Beatles' Day Tripper at eight.
At number nine was Nirvana's four chord wonder Smells Like Teen Spirit, while The Rolling Stones' (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction rounded off the top 10.
Voodoo Child was recorded in 1968, and was re-released as a single after Hendrix's death in 1970, when it reached number one.
More than 5,000 readers of the Music Radar website took part in the poll.
