check out this sort of ballady-ish riff:


e|-1-----1-----1-----1-----3-----3-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-|
b|---3-----3-----3-----3-----0-----0-----0-----0-----1-----1-----1-----1-----3-----3-----3-----3-----2-----|
g|-----2-----2-----2-----2-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----2-----2-----3-----3-----2-----2-----2---|
d|-0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----2-----3-----3-----2-----2-----3-----3-----2-------|
a|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0-|
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


hold the open e and a string for the same length as one of the triplets, and repeat
i didn't give a tempo b/c it would probably sound good fast, although i play it slow
(but i can't play it at all b/c there are no 1st e strings in my house right now )

I like it as an intro, and it's fine played as fast as you do. Can't find any real problems with it, maybe you can find some with mine http://ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=287949
i've got a gun in my hand but that gun won't cock
my finger's on the trigger but that trigger seems locked
i can't stop staring at the tick tock clock
and even if i could i would never give up

nice MIDI, Gutch220, although I play it at HALF that speed
i fact, i play it so slow, it would be better at 3/4 time signature

That MIDI is in 3/4, they are 16th notes at 70 bpm or your common 8th notes at 120 bpm in 3/4 time

sometimes i "feel" the beat on the first note of each group of three, creating triplets in 2/4
sometimes the beat is on each note because it's pretty slow (3/4 120 bpm, quarter notes)
