Now let's come up with a signature riff for this song. As always we have to choose whether we want to reuse a progression from one of the sections of the song or come up with something entirely new that just fits the vibe.

For this song I suggest we keep it simple and stay on E. Then we'll make it sound like a riff by using the "whole-step-below" approach, some rhythmic tricks, and mix in some single notes as well.
