Hey guys
i am writing a song for one of my friends and i just can't find the right chords for it.
I have a riff/melodi, but can't find any chords which fit in :/

A little help please?

The riff goes like this:

e|------------|---------|------2--|---------|----------|-------2-|
B|--------2--|------2--|-----2---|------2--|------2--|------2--|
G|-------0---|-----0---|----0----|-----0---|-----0---|-----0---|
D|------------|---------|----------|----------|---------|----------|
A|------------|---------|----------|--0-3----|--3-2---|--2-0----|
E|--0-3------|--3-2---|-2-0-----|----------|---------|----------|

Btw. the song is a lullaby, so its slow and calm

e|-----------|---------|------2--|--------|----------|-------2-|
B|--------2--|------2--|-----2---|------2--|------2--|------2--|
G|-------0---|-----0---|----0----|-----0---|-----0---|-----0---|
D|-----------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|
A|-----------|---------|---------|--0-3----|--3-2----|--2-0----|
E|--0-3------|--3-2----|-2-0-----|---------|---------|---------|


Are you sure that's right?

Did you mean....


E|-----------|---------|---------|--------|----------|---------|
B|-----------|---------|------2--|--------|----------|-------2-|
G|--------2--|------2--|-----2---|------2--|------2--|------2--|
D|-------0---|-----0---|----0----|-----0---|-----0---|-----0---|
A|-----------|---------|---------|--0-3----|--3-2----|--2-0----|
E|--0-3------|--3-2----|-2-0-----|---------|---------|---------|


Because the one you wrote doesn't sound like a lullaby at all.

And for the second one: G Am Em C D..
Any chord that fits in with the G or E minor scale

EDIT: If you use your way, change the second fret to third fret And you can use the G major scale chords and it'll fit wonderfully.

Like this:
e|-----------|---------|------2--|--------|----------|-------2-|
B|--------3--|------3--|-----3---|------3--|------3--|------3--|
G|-------0---|-----0---|----0----|-----0---|-----0---|-----0---|
D|-----------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|
A|-----------|---------|---------|--0-3----|--3-2----|--2-0----|
E|--0-3------|--3-2----|-2-0-----|---------|---------|---------|


Unless I'm getting the wrong end of the stick on what it's meant to sound like.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.
