    Isn't it related to the Portuguese "jeito" which means ability, skills...?

    Thanks everyone for such useful definitions! I really feel I'm getting to know my yeites.

    Salvadorm I can't see the links either.
    But surely, while there are differences between a yeite and a riff, if you're a guitarist they're both just opportunities to throw that coiff around and gyrate the pelvis, no?

    Can you think of any particular songs that might help me to distinguish between the two?
    I imagine Jimi Hendrix has riffs while Bo Diddley invented some yeites... or is it the other way round?



    So many questions!

    Aunque es claro que Yeite es netamente lunfardo, me parece que su etimología puede estar relacionada con el vocablo Jeito, del portugués, que significa "modo", "manera" de hacer algo y entiendo Yeito mucho en esa forma, como el modo o manera de hacer algo bien y desde luego, lunfardo, con el sentido añadido de secreto, truco, clave...
