    It could be something you wrote today, or something you learned today, but if you've got a riff under your fingers that you didn't have under your fingers yesterday, post a recording of yourself playing it!

    I came up with this tonight playing my P-bass with 7-year old flats; not exactly a slap-friendly axe. I tried it on my sixer and my 8-string, and ended up liking the 8-string version the best, although ironically the octave strings don't exactly jump out at you when the instrument is slapped. It's too high-notey to be a main riff, but I think it might make a cool breakdown section.

    Nice start for a RHCP-like song!

    Nice! I love playing chords up in the upper register. That part might also sound cool with some kind of modulation pedal (chorus/flanger/phaser) if you have one. :)

    I thought about adding a flange to it.....I really haven't recorded anything on a serious level since LEF, but this thread kind of has inspired me, and I think this tune might be my next one.....and I'll add some flange (which I still have) :)

    Today my drummer and I were jamming together while we were waiting for our keyboardist to get to rehearsal. At a certain point in the jam, we got into a pretty cool groove, and I hit record. That file got named "new riff idea (take 1)". "Take 2" is what happened when we stopped, reined the thing in, got a pattern going, and then decided we needed to record the idea for possible future use. And so, without further ado, I present my humble Riff Of The Day:

    This is a spur of the moment riff....kinda jam band style

    I'm hoping some others besides just RIP and me will participate in this eventually. :)

    In the meantime, my Riff O' The Day is another 8-stringer, this time a rocker played with a pick.
