Okay my friends and i were listening to the strokes and i wrote this riff i think it sounds a little strokes-esque, critique would be appreciated because i know its not that good but id like to improve on it any help on it is welcome thanks guys :D

the tuning is standard

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------12-12----------------------|
G|------8-8-9-9-8-8---(x 2)--------9-9-----------9-9---(x 2)-------|
D|-9-9-----------------------11-11--------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|



e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------14-14----------------------------12-12------------------|
G|----------9-9----------9-9--(x 2)--------8-8-----------8-8--(x 2)----|
D|-11-11-----------------------------9-9-----------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

THERES your rhythm. its just the same thing that is played behind every song ever made. maybe not EVERY song, but its a common rhythem in the key of B.

I sorta like it, just change the notes on the b string up to the e, then it'll be even easier to play.
