Re: Same Riff?
Common Jones Riffs/Techniques (in order encountered, for the most part):

Open, then playing alternating notes on 2-3 strings with your index and ring fingers: Cold and Ugly [Live], 1:06, Prison Sex, 2:45, 4:53, Undertow, 3:28, H. 3:30, Forty Six & 2, 5:20, The Patient, Vicarious ending, 6:07, Rosetta Stoned,
a. Alternating patterns of that: verses of Swamp Song, Flood, 3:29, The Grudge, Schism, 6:44, Jambi,
b. With little distortion and delay: 3:16, Swamp Song, 3:02, Reflection, The Pot bridge, 1:50, Rosetta Stoned,
c. Playing a note, then using this, then returning: 3:47, Hooker With A Penis, 5:38, The Pot
d. Hammering-on to the 3rd or 4th frets: 4:05, Parabola, 10:09, No Quarter, 10:16, Rosetta Stoned
Using second two strings together, bending third string up to match note of second string (usually with delay): Sober, 0:14, Swamp Song, 4:05, 5:15, H, Jambi solo (with Talkbox),
Controlled feedback (late category, feedback recreated live): Sober intro, 2:22, Bottom, :24, Crawl Away, 4:29, Swamp Song, intro to Stinkfist, etc, Ticks & Leeches
Using wah to add a higher sound: 5:17, Flood, 5:20, Forty Six & 2, 8:42, Lateralus
Pick slide with delay: 6:18, Flood, Lateralus second solo, 2:47, The Pot
Alternating with drums: 6:34, Flood, Forty Six & 2 bridge, 7:36, The Grudge, 7:17, Lateralus, 3:37, Vicarious, 5:38, Jambi,
Pick slide with feedback and/or glass slide and delay: Stinkfist, 2:40-2:55, Eulogy, 5:17, intro to Third Eye, 9:49, Third Eye,
Playing behind bridge: Eulogy intro, H. chorus, 8:15, Third Eye
D chord stuff: H. verse, Vicarious intro and bridge, 0:54, Forty Six & 2,
Rolling across first three strings: verses of Hooker With A Penis, 1:43, Vicarious, Jambi, 4:28, The Pot
Rolling hammer-ons/pull-offs (often, the above riffs with a/b/c/d are as such): 6:24, Schism, :28, Rosetta Stoned (the verses), 2:08, Eulogy
Bending with string behind nut: 2:38, The Grudge **
Around 2:23 of Rosetta Stoned is a riff very similar to something I heard earlier...it sounds a bit like the verse riff of Bottom, but I don't think that's what I'm looking for. **
** Included because these are particularly uncommon, used once, caught my attention, etc.
It's interesting for me, as a guitarist, to see his progression between albums--there are definitely riffs that he has evolved to use a lot over the years, and other ones that only appear once in a song and really "make" the song for me. I hope this helps any players here who are stuck on something, or just those interested in knowing about what he does. I am considering making a demonstration video to cover all of these. It has taken me a while to get them all nailed down (most recently I've picked up the slide/delay stuff from Stinkfist and Third Eye) and I feel like it might help those who are curious.
Breathe in Union!
