Have you ever wanted be the INVENTOR of your own original Riffs? A great way to start creating Riffs is to become aware of their specific components. Start by listening to as many great Riffs as possible. Observe the rhythm, the amount of notes, the melodic contour, the vowels and words used, the vocal register, and the stylistic nuances. Write out a list of these items. Then, challenge yourself to design at least 5 unique Riffs using these elements. You might write out the rhythm, vowels, and notes before you sing. Or, you might experiment with your voice to find the exact elements you desire. Either way, you'll soon find yourself becoming the inventor of all kinds of Riffs that you can truly own and call your OWN.
