I heard a song today and unfortunately I was unable to catch the name, artist and lyrics for that matter! Luckily the melody is still fresh in my head.

IMO the song could be identified as "modern rock" with a male vocalist, with a less aggressive style and designed for radio airplay.

The intro melody is the main hook. It follows a simple chord progression of Gmaj, Emin, Dmajor, Cmajor. The melody itself is a clean lead guitar (possibly with a touch of chorus/modulation) played as a "descending" phrase played over four bars, then repeat. From what I remember the melody continues into the versus, the chorus involves heavier guitars.

Can you help me identify this song?
