Is this something?

I won't so much as raise an eyebrow if this thread was promptly closed along with a link to one that answers the question, but since my wondering is as to what category the stuff belongs to my counciousness is clean.

Have a look at these simple riff parts:

g ------10-b12(14)p10-----
d -10h12-------------12-10

g ------9-b11(13)-11-9---
d -9-11-----------------11

Top of my head, two versions of a type of riff part that I've been stumbling upon time and time again lately. I'm a bit curious about wether it's something special theory-wise or simply a progression that many muscians find to be nice, myself included.

I think it just has particular melodic value.

Pentatonic, Blues, or Modal depending how it relates to the rest of the song/interlude. I don't know if that's what you're asking.

Sorry I accidentally double posted here. I hit send and then hit stop to change my post but I guess it was too late. Just read my next post and nevermind this one.

Looks to me like in the first tab the 12th fret on the D is the root note (so that what is played is the minor 7th and the root note on the D string and the minor 3rd, the 4th, and the 5th on the G string).

The second tab is almost identical except that the three last notes are different and the whole thing is transposed down a semitone to Db (ie it is moved down one fret).
Of course, like Kalmahswamp said, it depends on the context, what I said just seemed like the most likely possibility, since it is pentatonic.

Just a question regarding your method of tabbing, since I've never seen bends written exactly that way before:
Does it say play 10th fret on G, then play 12th, then bend one full tone, then pull off to 10th fret? Usually people but the "b" for bend after the note that is to be bent, or use a ^1 or ^1/2 symbol to indicate a bend [I think I've also seen 5^(7) somewhere].
Just curious because your way seems odd to me...
