A lot can be accomplished with just one chord. Depending on how you accent it, if you're muting it or not, it will come out sounding different. This can be what makes you recognize a riff, or even an entire song.

It's important to practice switching between palm muting, and not palm muting, and it's a bit harder than you might think, so sit down and take your time with it.
