idk really, either like a metal-core, or like a prog type thing

i wasnt sure if you were tuned at first, but after a while i thought you were.

well, i dont think this is the right forum, but im not reporting you, ill let others do that if they wish.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

Do you ever poke yourself with all that excess string hanging there? Looks dangerous.

it sounds like any generic metalcore band. it sounds harsh (what i said not the actual riff), but that's how i see it. also going to the recording section, not the pit
#15
it's 4/4 timing, that's not very proggy, it's all in one key, that's not very proggy, it's not mix measure or anything, that's not very proggy. but that's the genre "progressive" which really isn't all that progressive when it has rules like that.

As far as it being innovating, new and progressive, not necessarily the genre progressive, it still isn't

also, you are making that riff seem so hard, just move the notes up 5 frets and over one string and you barely have to move your arm. it just is a pain moving your arm that much

Yay! Understanding of Economy of Motion!

It's a beautiful, beautiful thing that can make playing easier.

It just sounds as basic as can be
Consistent note lengths, 4/4 signature and very basic scale.
Listen to some stuff like Born of Osiris to get an idea on progging up a simple riff by using unusual note lengths and groupings (intro to Open Arms to Damnation for example)
ohai little sig.

There has got to be an easier way to play that. When you figure it out clean it up a little and play it twice as fast and you may have a winning riff on your hands.

i love how people think that playing things faster is always better. especially twice as fast. i mean if he played that twice as fast it would sound pretty annoying and if it did turn into a song, would be very repetitive

Well guess it's back too the drawing board then

don't get discouraged dude. finding the right riff can take forever and then implementing it can take a while. keep trying

Twice as fast may be overkill but consider this: he said he was going for a "progish" sound. Prog to me implies technical proficiency as well as loose song structure. The economy of playing problem (moving so far to play the second half) is solved the riff gets a lot easier. The riff is not strong enough as it is (IMHO) to constitute the main part of a song. If he pushes it a couple of clicks faster however it would be a neat transition part or bridge or small part of a song. The repetition part should not be a problem either because if his prog is anything BTBAM-esque (as it sounds to be) he may play the riff 4 or 8 times in one section of the song and then proceed on through the rest of his 10 minute epic master piece.

These are simply my opinions and I was simply replying with some constructive criticism. I didn't want to come off as the Speed=Skill kinda guy you perceived me as.
