    I wouldn't concentrate too much on practising riffs "blindly", unless for warm-up or basic technique training.

    Try practising basic arpeggios and try to utilize them, e.g. in a blues.
    It's pretty useless practicing stuff without knowing WHAT you play and how you can use it.

    Try for some lessons
