What good are riffs if you don't know full songs?

And as an extension of that, who cares about the fingerings for parts if you can't explain the theoretical aspects of a piece?

Riffs are a good way to make smaller, less daunting goals rather than being overwhelmed with a song whose difficulty is way over your head. For instance, even if I can't play the entirety of 'through fire and flames', being able to grab a piece of that still feels like an accomplishment/progress.

Also because it's a daily thing, it's like, 5 minutes per day of focused practice towards a cool goal rather than just sitting down to do scales. Makes it fun, keeps it interesting.

and even if you can't explain the theory, training your ear to be able to identify tones and anticipate the following notes is extremely helpful for any kind of writing
