Hi guys,

I've been learning scales and going through the A Minor and Lydian mode. I started to play this cool riff and I thought I knew it from a band. Not quiet sure though?

Here is the riff. It's a rock sort of genre.




Thanks

I don't think I recognise it, it just sounds a bit generic that's why it sound familiar.

From what I remember of reading treble clef it's reminding me of Stairway. <_<

Would you run down past the fence?

Tell us, is the black box lying?

I can't really tell...
What I did when this happened to me is record myself playing the riff then ask Yahoo Answers with a link to the youtube video of the recording. Turns out it was the solo to Dani California

It happened to me a short while ago and I can't, for the life of me, remember the song title or anything. I'd like to post me playing it or a tab of it, but I'm scared it might be a really embarrassing song :/

I've done that sorta, I came across a riff that is eerily similar to the main riff of Blood and Thunder

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

That's what I got.
Me and my girlfriend were in a guitar store one day.

My GF- What's the difference between Gibson and Epiphone?

Me- (Explains)

GF- So Epiphone is like Gibson's slutty little sister?

Me- I love you.

I once sat with my guitar and got into a sort of metal groove and started playing something I thought sound sort of good. A short while later I realized that I play a modified version of the main riff in "Walk" by Panetera in standard tuning. Oh boy, I felt stupid.
Alright people, Move along - there is nothing to see.
