When thinking of some of the most covered songs in rock history, there are many that come to mind. Songs like Stairway To Heaven, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Dream On, Hotel California, the list just goes on and on.

But there is one song in particular that comes to mind a lot more than most, and that song is Sunshine Of Your Love. Considered by many to be ‘the riff song’, Sunshine Of Your Love will go down as one of the most covered songs in all of rock music.

The song is truly universal in every way possible. The song is played phenomenally by many great musicians, but the one who plays it the best is its creator.
