Record that or indicate timing, I really don't know what that sounds like.

And read about chord progressions, that will help. This riff can be thought of as a B minor chord, since it contains the notes of one, just not played together as a chord. So you could try another riff based on an E chord, which would be the IV chord in B minor. You could just play the same riff a fourth (5 chromatic notes) higher if you wanted... that's done in a lot of songs.
