What do you prefer, great complex riffs or a nice simple chord progression with more of a leading vocal. a chord progression is alot easier to make and add lyrics to (IMO) but i think a powerful riff can really pull the song together.

So what is your favorite?

Why can't we choose nice simple riffs or great complex chord progressions?

That's what I chose. Well. Let's say mid-complex chord progressions.

How about a complex chord progression with an even more complex riff over it?


Yeah, me likes my technical music

Complex riffs over a complex chord progression in 11/8. Modulating every 3 barrs. O ya.


+1. But how about... 15/8 and 7/4.

I like putting both together into a song. In my band, we have choruses that are both, like a simple chord progression with a vocalish lead, then a more complex riff after that, then it repeats.
