I wrote this today but for some reason i think it's already a song...anyone knows if it's already a song?

It's sound familiar but I think you've mixed it up to the point where you can definitely use that as an original.

Yeah, I mean, it's A blues, right? There's only so much you can do with it before it sounds like a hundred other songs. The riff is totally fine and original, especially if you ever get a band behind that then it'll always change a tiny bit more and sound different with a bass line and maybe another guitar.

edit: oh, yeah, and I seriously love it. Please turn it into a full song with a band, I would love to hear that.

Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass

While it does sound similar to a lot of other blues kinda riffs I'd say it's still original, if only because the way you play it gives it it's own kind of personality.

Either way, it's really cool.

Can anyone comment on the "intro" too? I kinda added that just to give a start to the riff so I don't know if I'll keep it

Don't recognize it, but I have to say that is a GREAT riff. However, it somehow reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A_ccea_hJs . The strumming resembles the vocals in that song a bit, but other then that, didn't find any plagarism here.
