Hey guys. As the title says, I'm searching for some acoustic riffs that are more on the "melancholy side" as far as sound goes, and that aren't very chord heavy also. I enjoy simple things such as Metallica's "Fade To Black" intro riff, From First To Last's "Emily" riff, Evanescence's "October" etc. But really genre doesn't really matter as long as it's not finger picked(I do enough of that at school).

oh snap

didnt read the original post

i think babe im gonna leave you is picked regularly

or hybrid picked
The intro to Tommy Emmanuel's "Those who wait" is amazing. He uses hybrid picking later in the song though.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.
