I started writing something new a few days ago and a riff i came up with seems to be in 17/16 which for me seems a bit odd because it doesn't sound that odd. Anyway have a look have i got it right or have i completely messed up?

Hey Steve, what happens after this 17/16 riff?
If you want to repeat the riff you can also write it on a standard 4/4 bar playing the last power chord as a 32th note with a tie.

I made a Guitar Pro file with this example.

It doesn't repeat but it does go into a 4/4 bar. I'll upload in a sec

Here it is, it's not what i'm definetly going to do but it's an idea instead of just repeating the riff

Well, if you have this sound in your mind and if you want this effect, go ahead.
The good thing about notation softwares is that you have a quick preview about the music you're writing.

Mmm, to be honest I think you should follow what it's better to your ears. There are different time signatures, a tempo change... a 17/16 looks pretty interesting too.
Otherwise you can repeat the riff at the end of the song, just an idea.

I have had the same problem. I have had several kickass riffs which sound very 4/4, but when I`m about to write them down in GP5 I`m often facing problems with the timing. This happens almost every time when it`s a kinda groovy riff with scratching for instance. As already recommanded, record what you hear, not what you get a guitar pro. The riff can lose its power if the timing doesnt sounds good, at least mine tongue.gif

Cool sounding riff !

If I were you, I'd keep it the way it is now.

Thanks smile.gif

Yeah i might even extend the last note i'm not sure yet, which if that happens that riff will also be in 9/8 and not 17/16. The riff will repeat at some point in the track but just not at that point
