Totally awesome dude! :D

I don't have anything ready right now. Work all day, and then my son has a football game tonight, so I'll try to get a riff posted by tomorrow night at the latest. If anyone else has one ready to go, feel free to jump in, I don't mind. 8)

Alright if you don't mind I'll throw one in here real quick. This is the introduction to a song.

One chord is fine.
Two you're pushing it.
Three and you're into jazz.

Thanks for taking over elpantalla. :D

I just found out at my son's football game last night, that his team is also playing at half time at the local High school game tonight also. (He's 12 & plays pop warner football). Then a game tomorrow morning again, so I wouldn't have been able to get a riff done until tomorrow sometime.

Your riff sounds cool, but I don't have a guess as to what it is. Maybe somoeone else will get it, or we may need some clues.

Thanks again for playing! 8)

'Twas written by one of the most influential alternative bands ever.

Released first EP in 88, disbanded in 93.

Also had a reunion tour in 2004.

I was a bit busy Thu and Fri.

Elpantalla, Is it possible you covered one of this band's songs in the Hear Hear section? If so, I don't have this EP (one of the few albums I don't have).

Elpantalla, I think I have enough clues to say it is The Pixies. If it is their first album, it must be Come On Pilgrim, but I'm strugggling with the song. I don't own the EP and I can only get 30 second samples. It could be: Levitate Me.
