Are you talking about tuning based on the 5th & 7th fret harmonics? If so then that is probably your problem. Tune using the fretted 5th fret or an octave, or as was mentioned get a tuner.

I'd try C major to start maybe C major pentatonic. Try to focus on mimicking the motion of your chord tones.

Here you go: Dropbox download (https://www.dropbox.com/s/cstp75g4dbsm3zh/Riff.mp3)
