How would you define a chord progression? Is this:

--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
-------------------------------5-----
-------------------------------5-------------------------------7-8-9--
-5h7----5h7------5h7------3-------5h7----5h7----5h7-7-8-9--
------00-------00-------00------00-------00-----00------5-6-7--00---:

a chord progression, from E to C to A to A# to B?

I know it's a riff, but I don't know how music like this fits into the scheme of chord progressions.

No, a chord progression has to include chords, two or more chords.

No you can do whatever you want with them, arpegiate them, strum them/whatever.

But then couldn't that entire riff up there be counted as a single arpeggiated chord?

It's about implying them though arpeggiating.

This can only be achieved through lot's of experience up to a point where you know which notes and what timing will make the chords pop out (implied of course)

Sure there's a chord progression implied somewhere in there but it's useless. Back in the day, riffs weren't very popular at all. It was all about melodies that follow chord progressions. That's changed A LOT and now having a riff like the one you have is totally cool.
