    Amazing how 80s pop cr@p and its offspring does creep up on everything - even on a thread about guitar intros after a couple of pages.

    Here's one from the Hair Farmer days...

    I always loved the acoustic intro to this song by Warrant. And I consider this the best song in their catalog - miles beyond their 'hits' like 'Cherry Pie.' Solid guitar work throughout.

    Only one other mention that I saw, but...

    Brown Sugar is by far my favorite...

    A bit maybe. But it was mainly Nena and some of the later Van Halen stuff that stroke me against the grain. Already sorry for that.

    Pretty simple guitar part but it gets my foot tapping when it comes on the radio.

    Yeah, sorry about Nena, that was my fault. Almost didn't do it. But jeez that beat always get me moving. It's one of the few 80s-pop-crap that I like :lol:

    I tried to counterbalance, pairing it with China Cat Sunflower. That's gotta count for something...

    I know Hagar era Van Halen doesn’t get much love around here, but the guitar intros on these two tunes sure made me want to play guitar back in the day (and still sound cool to my ears).
