This is driving me absolutely bananas

ok, so I got this riff stuck in my head, a pop punk sort of thing, and I know I've heard the song before but I can't for the life of me think of the name or the band and I want to find the rest of the tab to learn.

This is what I have so far:

x = palm mute

e------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------
G---8-----8x 8x 8x 8x 8x 8x-----12-----10----8-----5
D---8-----8x 8x 8x 8x 8x 8x-----12-----10----8-----5
A---6-----6x 6x 6x 6x 6x 6x-----10-----8------6-----3
E--------------------------------------------

That's all I've got...it's probably like the first 4 seconds of the song. Can anyone help me out?

could be a million songs depending on how you strum the rythym and your set-up. I personally don't listen to pop-punk, so In particular, I don't know. Good luck!

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Hey, RRR - any chance you could do a recording of that riff? Just play it into a PC mic? Might give us a better idea.....

Just a thought,

:D :D :D

unfortunately, I don't have a mic to do this with. Additionally, I might be playing it out of key, the tab I made was as close as I could get it to sound. I was hoping that someone more experienced would be able to play it themselves and maybe hear what I was getting at.

Note: I edited the tab in my first post...I think it's 6 palm muted stroked played really past instead of four.

Probably wrong, but here's my guess:

It's difficult, because we can't hear the tab you wrote... But do you know the note duration? The tempo? I could try to translate it on Power Tab and that way, I could hear it and maybe help you..

Now, I listen to the Pop / Punk Rock songs that I had on my computer and I found : It's up to you by Pennywise... But I guess it's not what you're searching for...

I fooled around with it in powetab (which I've never used before) and this is as close as I can get to it...

It's nearly impossible to find out what song that is, considering so many punk songs use that same exact riff.

Which I could help, sorry.

no

i think it's much recent, like late 90s early 2000s, at the peak of the pop-punk popularity of blink-182, sum 41 and the like
