Hello guys!

Yesterday I was trying to compose a rock/metal song and I wrote a guitar riff. The problem is that the riff sounds very familiar to me, I might have heard it somewhere. Could you please listen to it and tell me if it comes from a song you know? You can find it attached on this post (GP4, GP5, Midi).

Thanks and please no stupid answers.

Lots of riffs often sound familliar, especially ones based around a similar structure as that (playing a similar melody 4 times on different chords). I imagine that if you were to write a song around it and then become famous off it, someone might be able to find a connection between it and say... Never Gonna Give You Up, but chances are in reality it's original and entirely your own work.



Sounds good, by the way, although I would prefer it sped up a bit.

Dragonforce? I don't even know what that is. Isn't it that Japanese card game "Dragon Force Z"?

I just thought that sounds similar to the intro of The Kids Aren'T Alright by Offspring.

Yeah, I have fond memories as a child of fapping to a porno with my close friends before sitting down for a nice relaxing evening of Runescape.

actually, i hear a little bit of "electric eye" in there, but it doesn't match up perfectly, so let's just say that's an original riff. sounds good.

Reminded me a little of these colours don't run by Maiden.
You're right though it does sound a little familiar, and i cant quite put my finger on it.
Wait, i think it sounds a bit like a slowere version of over the wall.
