So this is something that I've decided to do, and I thought I'd make a thread and see if other people want to participate. I realized that I don't know how to play enough cool/cheesy easily recognizable keyboard riffs, so I'm going to learn one a day.

All you have to do is just learn one riff a day for the next however many days, as long as you long. Then at some point you can make a recording of all the riffs. It can be any riff, from any genre, on any instrument. It doesn't even have to be hard, though ideally it should at least be the most recognizable riff from the song.

I figure this is a lot easier than learning an entire song, so I'm more likely to keep at it for a longer period of time.

So far I've learned to play the main riffs from Bittersweet Symphony and Kernkraft 400.

In case I need space for more stuff than one post allows, like a list of participants.

Why didn't the "other" option in the poll work?

At most ten options.

I will do this, and not because of a post in another thread about no one posting in this thread.

Yeah please change it... the other one fit your posts perfectly. At least make it something better.

To contribute I am doing something similar but since I have less time I am learning 2 riffs a week.

Sometimes during improv I throw in the lick for "I Been Working on the Railroad" and it usually gets a few smiles.

Well I just learned that Riff for Float On, by Modest Mouse which is the same as Party in the USA, so now I have done my two.

I guess I will raise my riff meter.

Well I grew so attatched to the old one

but if I were to pick a new one I think Rigby from Regular Show would fit.
