You know what i mean by "off". It just sounds truly unique and almost seems like it shouldnt sound so good.

Black Sabbath - A National Acrobat

and i can't find a youtube of it, but one of the outro riffs to death from above 1979's song, sexy results.

ya there are a lot of riffs that are really weird time-wise which makes them sound kinda cool. unfortunately i cant think of any right now haha
Lunatics on pogo sticks
Another southern fried freak on a crucifix
Hicks don't mix with politics
People on the street just kickin' to the licks

The middle part of Riot of Violence by Kreator. It doesn't really fit in with Kreator's style, but it still manages to sound brutal. If any other band were to record it, it would sound different.

In Trivium's song "Tread the Floods", there is this diminished riff in 3/4 time that is pretty f'n awesome. Since that's the only "off" riff I can recall, that would be my favorite
Here's my Youtube channel.
I play guitar and video games on it.
You're more than welcome to check it out.

Pantera:Walk. So simple yet so catchy.


that riff isnt very off. it's pretty boring actually, catchy it is...but it's boring too.

True, I just couldn't think of an off one right offhand. Most Lamb of God stuff is pretty off.

not the riff, but the solo to "Limelight" but Rush is amazing, but it probably shouldn't be, if you just look at the tab.

The intro from The Ocean by Zeppelin. Weird time. Oh, that and the chorus from Bridge to Canada by Noisettes.

The band Cynic is loaded with "off" stuff.

Also, pretty much anything by Steve Morse or the Dixie Dregs has something off about it yet he manages to make it sound perfectly natural. I've heard him go into the most bizarre, random sections of a song and have the weirdest timing/time signatures without sounding purposefully weird.

ah yes, best part is how the meter shifts. that's what gives it the strut.

Not so much a guitar part but the bassline from The Mars Volta's "Cygnus..." jamout is pretty darn cool, and it's definitely not your typical rhythm.

Also interesting, I was listening to "Subterranean Homesick Alien" by Radiohead and it synced nearly perfectly with a police siren going by my place.

tira me a las aranas by the mars volta.

most of the guitarists solos are pretty
whacky too, but in a good way. awesome band.
