Does anyone else have this problem, where your riffs seem to all have a lot of open notes in them. I play in drop d mostly and it seems like every riff involves an open note, especially on the low D strong. They still sound good but I fear that it might be a little reptative. Anyone else?

Well, there are only 7 notes. If you really think it's a problem, simply transpose your riff up by a half step or two after you've written it.

this forum is for discussing recording, showcasing recordings, discussing your recordings or showing others your riffs.

you may want to try something like MT if you want to talk about theory and your riffs, the correct genre subforum to discuss riffs in a certain style, or something along those lines.
