Be God. That's what Matt Bellamy does.

He bases a lot of stuff on the harmonic minor scale, with lots of classical influence. Noodle til you find something you like. Nobody here will write your riff for you.

there not prog but there very very very very very good, anyone into experimental prog rock should have atleast 3 radiohead cds,

riff writting like everything takes alot of practice, its something you got to work at, write alot of riffs and you sort of figure it out and develop your own style

good luck

People confuse the genre "prog" with the term "progressive." Radiohead is progressive. The genre is a meaningless word now. How can you categorize something that's supposed to be constantly changing/progressing? 'Prog' bands sound the same. PROGRESSIVE bands are the tits - Radiohead, Muse, QOTSA, Volta, Oceansize...I'd go on, but, I'll just get flustered by somebody who disagrees with me.
