melodic riffs

im supposed to jam with this dude tommorow and we've been wanting to make a melodic-ish band and i've been making some really shitty riffs lately. i play drums in a thrash band so going from that to this band is tough for me especially since im on guitar now. any tips on making some what melodic riffs (i dont have a piano player) and just any tips in general?

Harmony between tow guitars is very important element in melodic metal..also less power chord riffs and more lead riffs (harmonized by second guitar)
What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries for them from prayers or bells,
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,-
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.

Thats a good explanation, also learn some scales, especially Minor.

It just takes a whole lot of playing around with, I find it quite easy on acoustic, but gets a bit harder on electric because i always get drawn into playing power chords.

Think my attitude stinks?? You should smell my fingers.

we've had threads like this. Search the theory and guitar forums.
Man, I get real sweaty after I wack my dong. Yeah, cause I headbang while I do, and I can't really "Jump" (haha ) like VanHalen in a dorm room, so I just walk back and forth....haha a couple days ago I was jumping up and down on my bed, with my pants down and my roommate came in when I wasn't looking, hahaha.

This is my band's page
