this is an untitled riff i made today. I dont think its that great but i could use as a verse or something.

EDIT: I added a simple bass line. hope it sounds better.

yeah i guess its alright, not much else to say about it. I didn't really like bar 2 though. It's the only one that repeats those power chords.

would that sound better with a lead guitar over it?

Hmm pretty good for a start, so expand on the idea and add a bass for more depth. The riff did get a little overused do it three time instead of 4.

Yeah adding a bass is a good idea. But don't add a lead, i don't think it'll work it too well. Hey... maybe after the third time you play it, play it again, but have another guitar play it in fifths or whatever. I'm not sure if thats what its called though. Like-

Gtr 1
E|------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------
G|7--------------7------------7----9
D|x--------------x------------ x----x
A|5------------- 5------------ 5----7
E|----0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0---------

Gtr 2
E|------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------
G|10------------10-----------10--12
D|x--------------x------------ x----x
A|8------------- 8------------ 8---10
E|----0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0---------

lol oh well... did you actually play it over gtr 1? It sounds alright if you play together at the same time... well thats my opinion. This riff kinda reminds me of A gunshot to the head of trepidation by Trivium

o gosh thats not good. i hate it when it sounds like another band. In fact, I was just listening to that song before i made that riff. I don't know how to play that song though, so it was probably just a coincidence

Yeah the bass makes it sound better. But I still think there should some sort of variation the 4th time playing it.
