And the first part was nice, but don't know tempo or stuff so the 8 and 5 sounded bad.

to clarify ricebag's comment:
you can't just post a riff and ask for help, if you cant write your own songs then maybe your not cut out for songwriting.

When people post their full or almost finished songs that's different because they're asking for critiquing, not someone to write a song for them.

Yeah, the guys right, anyone can write a riff, it's up to you to turn it into a song. Sounds like you're just starting out, so just, play the riff how you think it sounds good, and then play around with it and find something else to play after it, and after that, the song will slowly just fall together. That's the only way to learn.

It's cool. I don't have my guitar with me to test it out but I can play it in my head

Are you talking about those weird sphincter-spasms where it feels like there's a ghost dick in your ass for a little while and then it just disappears?

the first bar has something wrong, because when you moove on to bar2 it doesn't have the finality sense and it sounds like if it was ''cutted.'' I recommend you fixing the last notes of the first bar.

The rest of it was really good, but you should try it as a bassline.

I have a lot of riffs I've made up, but no complete songs. It's down to you, and me to advance on that.

ROFL. Sorry. That was epic.

But honestly, yeah, the riff could be fine, but you gotta build around it. Get a program like powertab [or "legally" acquire Guitar Pro] and tab it and build around it.
