Just quick study into trying to write a riff around the concept of a waterfall in slow motion. The original riff was mostly clean and tapped, but I thought it would be cool to pick it with a lead sound in unison. This lick outline C#sus2 and Asus2 before going into open voices of B, C#m, B, and E. All in all, this was a fun exercise in using suspended chords without their usual function of setting up a resolution, as well as string skipping and position shifting on the neck.

That's very inspiring mate! Thanks for sharing!! This reminds me to Plini, and Intervals. Are these influences for you?

Thanks guys! I do quite like Plini and Intervals smile.gif
I am planning on doing more in the future with a more refined editing format. It's one of the ideas for series I've had lately that can maintain a realistic to sustain schedule. I'll likely have one master thread I will be posting them in when I have it figured out.
