Arpeggios are not just for lead playing! Here's an example of how you can use the notes in arpeggios to create riffs.

Here I only used notes from the E minor arpeggio over E, and the G major arpeggio over G, and the A major arpeggio over A. Simple as that!

Sometimes when writing riffs, licks, or songs, it can be a good idea to restrict yourself like this. You may come up with new sounds and ideas you could only dream of!
