Special Riffs as the name suggests, are complex riffs that are impossible to recreate with manual riffs. They can be used to make a song more original.
- Many users create melodies ahead of time and mix the beginnings of specials with manuals to recreate them in the game.
- Newer users often use full specials exclusively for their melodies, though this has been known to invoke the wrath of csd.
