Hey guys, I don't know if this is the right place to post this (have never strayed out of the instrument sections and the pit).

But could you please tell me honestly, what you think of this short little riff I put together?

and this

and is the last one a blues rock riff?

Thanks.

Thanks, man. I know it's nothing new or revolutionary. But how should I go about building on top of it?

the riffs were decent, but honestly, it sounds like every metalcore band ever, but your technique isn't bad, you just gotta be more creative and come up with something a bit more original.

I do agree, they sound like every metal core band out there,

what could I do to improve my technique?

learning some fairly difficult songs is always good, i noticed on your profile you were into nile, perhaps try learning papyrus...? that's a good song for practicing alternate picking.
