For media our group needs to produce the introduction credits of a teen lifestyle program. Since the only thing our group knows about is music we decided to to make it to do with rock/metal music. For a segment we are going to teach an intermediate/advanced riff that sounds good. Preferably in standard tuning. My friend's suggestion was Final Wars intro by Buckethead and I suggested Plug in baby intro because with plug in baby we can leave the riff running in the background until the introduction credits are over.

tl;dr: What is a good intermediate/advanced riff that sounds good and isn't really common.

Man I really really hate metal.


Man, Johnny Marr's stuff is deceptively difficult. I've only seen one or two guitarists ever who could convincingly play his stuff.

The opening to A Shot Below The Belt by August Burns Red. It's normally all tuned one step down, but it can be played in a higher key I guess.

If you want standard tuning stuff that people would recognize, Metallica would be your best bet. King Nothing, despite the fairly unpopular likeness of Load around here, is a fun riff to play.

That's all I can think of. Some of them are most likely easy, but they're catchy and fun to play/listen too.
