I was just dinking around today, and came up with this whacky little intro and main riff that I thought sounded rather interesting. I don't really recognize any of the theory behind it (if anyone could help me out...?), because like I said, I was just screwing around. So though it's not theoretically genius, I thought it sounded cool, so I decided to present it to my fellow UGers and let you dissect it piece by piece! Here it is:

So, what does anybody think? Keeper? Thrower? As always, feedback is greatly appreciated.

its pretty good, altho instead of the slide from 5\4 i think 6\5 sounds cooler, and those dead notes could be some cool palm muted pattern. i like it, add more and expand it

Huh. I don't have my guitar with me, but I can imagine that 6\5 would sound pretty cool too. Not sure, though.
And yeah, I've been trying to think of some palm muted low E string stuff to do instead of those dead notes. I agree that it would be better that way.
Thanks for the feedback! And I'll take those suggestions to heart. You're right, it definitely needs expanding. But, 'tis a start, no?

maybe if you made the 5 6 5 in the riff part a slide like 5/6\5... it sounds sweet i think

I like the main riff part, up not the intro. I tried it on Powertab, and it sounded horrible. I also say go with P.M. instead. And the 5s6s5 sounds good. Crit4Crit? My newest is called Lottery of War
