Help me with this bass riff
 
Was playing around with some bass sounds from one of my softsynths and this riff crept into my left hand. I think it's a Led Zeppelin tune but can't seem to place it and am hoping someone can help me out. It goes (all notes 1/4 notes unless noted):
E
E octave above previous note
E
B below high E 8th note
D below high E 8th note
E
E octave above previous note
D below high E
B below high E

Actually when I was noodling around with it the notes I played were 1/2 step lower than I notated here; that's what fell under my fingers. When played it sounds a little like the bass riff in Pink Floyd's Money but that's not it.

No. What I can do is a short bit of it in PT and email you the .wav file if you want but I'd need to do it via regular email as forum emails don't allow attachments.

Bingo!
That often happens when I'm just playing around with sounds on the keyboard and no particular piece of music in mind - it's whatever comes out from my fingers. Sometimes I come up with readily recognizable stuff, sometimes not so much and sometimes something new whether it be classical/jazz/rock/blues.
