Just a few riffs I'm stringing together into a song, nothing special.

Tuning: Drop D.
Distortion: Mild, more of an overdriven sound, not chunky or anything.
Speed: 8ths at around 80 BPM, Sections marked with *** are 1.5x that speed.


Verse Riff

e|------------------------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------------------------
G|------------------------------------------------------
D|-----7-----5-----7---------------7-----5-----7--------
A|-----5-----3-----5---------------5-----3-----5--8p7p5-
D|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0-3p0h3-0-0---0-0---0-0----8p7p5-

x4 unmuted, then palm muted it for the lyrical verse. Though I haven't written it yet...


Chorus

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|------------------0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-/77---
A|------------------0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-/77---
D|-(8p7p5---5p3p2)--0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-/77---

*Line is () is only repeated once, as a lead into the chorus, meaning the verse ends before the next 8p7p5 riff would be played, using it to lead into the chorus instead.*


Turnaround from Chorus to Verse. (1.5 Time, roughly 120 BPM)

e|------------------------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------------------------
G|------------------------------------------------------
D|-0-0-0-0-3-2-1-0-0-0-3-2-/7-0-0-0-0-3-2-1-0-0-0-0-3p0-
A|-0-0-0-0-3-2-1-0-0-0-3-2-/7-0-0-0-0-3-2-1-0-0-0-0-3p0-
D|-0-0-0-0-3-2-1-0-0-0-3-2-/7-0-0-0-0-3-2-1-0-0-0-0-3p0-

Repeated twice.

So the arrangement is pretty much, Verse-Chorus-Turnaround-Verse-Chorus-Turnaround-Solo-Outro. (The two repeatitions of the verse riff, ending the lead in for the chorus. (8p7p5-5p3p2))

That'd be cool. Do you need me to record a guitar track to go with it or anything?
