Ok, I've been playing for about a year now, and I'm going to be buying a new guitar and amp next week, probably an ESP. I just met some dude who I work with that has been playing for a couple years that's gonna be helping me test some stuff. I don't want to sound like a total n00b testing stuff out. What are some good riffs I could use? I'm looking for something in the metal genre prefferably something clean and something else distorted.

Nemeis - Arch Enemy

sick ass song and easy I think?

I could play the whole song and I have been playing for 12 months so I think that it is easy enough plus a great listen to.

Technical Difficulties - Racer X, the intro sounds tight and not very difficult.
A5 Chromatic scale aka John Petrucci's Psycho Excersice, just do it for the lulz.

Twinkle Twinkle little star!

Play Death's Crystal Mountain and just chords or something for the clean ****. I don't think they'll really care as long as you're paying.

Warning: You will get the sh*t kicked out of you..

Also, just play a couple of chords, no one cares.

Anyone recomend and palm-muting heavy riffs?

Yes, Technical Difficulties! Damage Control by John Petrucci. Seriously, listen to these songs on YouTube.

I'm very familiar with both songs, and let's just say most likely my skills aren't up to snuff. Other than maybe bits and pieces.

Wow, I was just about to answer when Island in the Sun - Weezer came up on my computer... That song is killer. Damage Control is not that hard; the intro is just a bunch of root fifths (P0wer Ch0rdz!).
