I've decided to change my iPhone ringtone from the "Old Phone" sound I've been using and thought, "What would be better than a great guitar riff or solo as a ringtone?". iTunes and Garageband make it pretty easy to create a ringtone from songs in your iTunes library.

I'm looking for loud, distinctive, and attention grabbing.

I've thought of a few:

Joe Walsh, "Life's Been Good to Me So Far"
Eric Clapton, "Layla"
Jimi Hendrix, "Purple Haze"
Led Zeppelin, "Whole Lotta Love"

Right now, I'm leaning towards Joe Walsh or Zeppelin...

Anybody else have any ideas?

I like White Room... not sure about as a ringtone...

I'm a long-time Walsh fan... He's got lots of material that would be good for this use:

Walk Away
Funk #49
All Night Long

Deep Purple, "Smoke On The Water" - one of the most famous riffs, absolute classic
Black Sabbath, "Iron Man" - also very famous riff
Metallica, "Enter Sandman" - from the Black Album, which needs no introduction, I think :)

Why don't you record yourself playing a riff and use that as a ringtone? That's what I did. It often starts a fun conversation when my phone rings around others.

right now mine is the intro lick to Layla. Which reminds me. I've had this lick for a while and need to record a new one.
