hi guys,

I got little riffs here that I wrote for a song, I wanted to harmonize them but it just didn't sound right (I'm new to writing songs). Can anyone of you guys help me perhaps? that would be too awesome. I also don't know what I Shall harmonize it to, I've been thinking about 5th's, but will I achieve the sound i'm aiming for ( Metalcore/hardcore but a little bit with a dark atmosphere) that way? or are 4th's or 7th's better then?

thanks in advance

Fifths and fourths are generally too emotionless to effectively harmonize anything; use thirds, switching between major and minor, depending on what fits the key and sound you're going for.


Edit: Not a genre I'm into, but I did my best to give you an example.
