music sketchbook v2 #12 (3:41) (3.3MB mp3)

I wrote this delay-based riff a long time ago--7 or 8 years, probably, and have never figured out anything to do with it, so, ok, turn it into a sketchbook entry. I was a little hesitant about it, actually, since the sketchbook entries are public domain and I really like the riff, but what the hell. If somebody makes a million dollars off of this riff, yay them.

Set delay to a dotted eighth note (three sixteenths), and play eighth notes as follows:

----------------------------------
---6-------6-------6-------6------
-----5-57----5-57----5-57----5-57-
--7-7-7---7-7-7---7-7-7---7-7-7---
-5-------5-------5-------5--------
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
---5-3-----5-3-----5-3-----5-3----
-------35------53------35------53-
--5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---
-3-------3-------3-------3--------
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
---6-------6-5-----6-------6------
-----5-57------75----5-57----5-87-
--7-7-7---7-7-7---7-7-7---7-7-7---
-5-------5-------5-------5--------
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
---5-3-----5-3-----5-3-----5-3----
-------35------53------35------53-
--5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---
-3-------3-------3-------3--------
----------------------------------


And the verse, for completeness (I don't remember
the bridge, which I improvised):

------------------
------------------
---2---2---2---2--
--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-
-5---5---5---5----
------------------

------------------
------------------
------------------
--252-252-252-252-
-3---3---3---3----
------------------

------------------
------------------
---2---2---3---5--
--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-
-1---1---1---1----
------------------

------------------
------------------
---2---2---2-5-2--
--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-
-5---5---5--------
------------------
