I was just walking back to my house from town and I had Crazy Train stuck in my head. Then came another riff that I just made up in my head. I really liked it so I thought "I'm gunna go home and work it out". Bear in mind, this is my first ever riff I've actually made like that, like hearing it in my head and then working it out, I don't often do that.
I play it around 120bpm. The D note on the A string is palm muted and you staccato the D and the C on the G string.

Here it is:

G|-------------7-------5----------------2-----------------2-----------
D|------------------------------5---0--------5---3---5-------3---0---
A|----5---5-------5-------5--------------------------------------------

WTH man, why don't you put up a Guitar Pro version of it, this way we are not forced to pick up a guitar, set a metronome play it. That is completely unecessary.
These kind of threads are appearing more often, have you guys never hear of Powertab, Guitar Pro, tabbing programs like that?

You don't have to set a metronome... 120bmp is two beats a second. If you can't do that then you need to practise some more. Stop being so damn lazy.

Only being able to play music from Guitar Pro - fail. If you cbf playing it when he wrote out instructions you don't deserve to hear it.

Music doesnt need to be quality to be good.


Press eject, give me the tape, if you know what's good for you

Why would i want to play it? I am okay with listening to music and giving a critique, i'm not gonna get my guitar, plug it in, turn it on, and play his riff though.

Well basically I agree with everyone here, having to get your guitar in order to listen to a riff sucks.

I just happened to have my acoustic right here so I played it. Nice, but not that special. Not much I can say about it

I think you guys should stop being douches, if you cbf playing it then why bother posting at all?

It's a pretty cool riff, i like the first half more than the second half though. I'm sure it would sound really cool with drums and all that.

I put it through my loopstation with some chords behind it and it's cool. I like it. I wrote it on acoustic and prominently use my acoustic. I forgot most people here use electric. Oh well, for those of you who actually played it thanks. Bear in mind it's my first proper riff that I wrote

It might be easier if you changes all of the 5s into opens one string up and the 7 into a 3 on the 2nd string
