okay, so I have made my first punk riff. it is probably a pile of crap but I'd like some feedback anyway.


e|--------------------------
B|--------------------------
G|---------------------5-5--
D|--7--7-X-2--X--5-X-5-5-5--
A|--7--7-X-2--X--5-X-5-3-3--
E|--5--5-X-0--X--3-X-3------


so thats about it, Its just an idea and if its half decent I'll use it in a song or something.
thanks.

bazooka is right buddy. you got to shake it up a little to keep peoples interest. if you played a song of just powerchords, it would lose the attention of the listeners almost immediately. the only exception would be bands like Green Day that luck out and accidentally create insanely catchy riffs. i would recommend you throw some arpeggiated powerchords in, for one idea, as the are easy to play and shake up the sound a little.

eg.

e--------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------
D--7-7------5----------7-------2----
A--7-7----5---5-----7----7----2----
E--5-5--3-------3-5--------5--0----

or as another alternative, you could use inverted power chords...

e-----------------------------------
B-----------------------------------
G-------5--7-----------------------
D--7---7--9--5--------------------
A--7-----------5-------------------
E--5----------3--------------------

If you want, you can even just put your guitar into Drop D and get some new sounds, and apply these techniques to your riffs.

anyhow, good effort keep trying. hope this helps..

PS. I don't expect any of the example riffs to sound good, i just wrote random numbers up to show what i meant.
