This is a fun little game I came up with years ago, thought I'd share.

Basically, look at any barcode (the numbers underneath) and imagine it's all notes on one string on a tab. You can come up with some pretty cool riffs.

Examples :

E-4-0-0-1-0-1-0-7-8-9- REPEAT

E-9-7-8-0-5-5-2-7-7-7-5-0-6- Repeat

etc.

It basically is : it's all mostly chromatic. But for instance, in my first example it's really just a Phrygian dominant with an added M6, which is pretty cool.

Likewise, you could just read binary if you wanted to come up with a shitty metal riff.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

Meh. It's what comprises the rhythm. I added some lead over it.
