Ok Everybody.
I was bored and i wanted to try and play some cool stuff other than something thats been recorded, so i came up with this: try to make the coolest, best sounding riff you can in about a minute. well i huess the time doesnt matter as long as its original. And if anyone steals someones riff and records it theyre a douchebag. So yea i hope i c some cool riffs.

this could be awesome. i wish i had a mic.

I just played the two tabs above me, they sounded alright , i didnt try with amp , but will later. heres somthing i been working on for a while, its only a bit of the song but you did say only a riff.

Its all on the Low E (sixth string), i recomend playing on a high trebble, high gain setting and preferable with heavy distortion. Sorry it's hard to display timing on a forum , you should get it tho , also ima probably upload a youtube video or somthing when i get the chance.

low [E]----------------7-----8--7--x-0-7---7---6------repeat once

low [E]----------------7-7-8-7---4-4-0-x-7-7-8-7---8--repeat eight times

low [E]----------------7-----8--7--x-0-7---7---6------repeat twice

thats it, enjoy.

ps: feedback would be highly appreciated.

thts a cool chord progression.
wat genere r u lookin at

E/-------------------------------------Bass comes in----------------------/
B/-------------------------------------Bass comes in---------------------/
G/------------------------5---5---5--Bass comes in---------------------/
D/-----------------5--7----7---7----Bass comes in---------------------/
A/--------5h6h7---------------------Bass comes in----3--3--3-------/
E/--5h8------------------------------Bass comes in--5--5--5--3~---/

I guess it's kind of kool. Relatively fast and when the 7 5 and the 53 bass thing comes in its kinda swingish like eight then quarter. W.E.

It's pretty simple, and a bit repetitive, but it doesn't sound bad. I'll post a recording of it later. I have another part to it as well, just can't remember it right now, I'll just add it to the recording.

The tempo is slow, moderate R&B/Jazz. Make sure you let the notes ring out accordingly, but keep a somewhat percussive strumming style to add some flair.

The key is B, mixolydian scale.
