These riffs I wrote for a project (a concept-EP about mosquitoes, that’s why I call them mosquito-riffs) and have been confusing me since then. Theoretically the second one should be harder since it’s mostly 1nps including string hopping. But because of some reason I can’t understand it feels super smooth to play, it’s almost like I’m just painting 8’s in the air. Instead, as you may notice, I’ve had more struggle with the first riff, which don’t jump strings.
Same thing goes for this lick that almost feel the most natural in the beginning when I’m string hopping.
Anyone else who had the same experience and have a theory of the reason why?
Oh, if you want to hear these things in it’s context:
