Create the mask movieclip

Open a new movie with size width=200, height=150, with background color set to black.

Create a new graphic symbol (let's call it gr_square) of a square with a dimension of 8 x 8 pixels. Choose a color so that you can see it on a black background.

Create a movieclip symbol (let's call it mv_bar). Drag 6 instances of gr_square into the movieclip. Align them vertically with the upper left corner of each square separated from the one immediate below it by 10 pixels. The upper left corner of the topmost square should be at x=0, y=0.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
