Here's the very 1st Bass Riff of the Month (BRotM) Challenge, being run by @stratman3142
The challenge is now open, and remains open for submissions until 11:30pm on 24th January 2018. We're starting early because people may have some time available over the Xmas break.
BRotM can be interpreted by the entrants, ie as simple or complex as they like, to encourage as many as possible to get involved. It could be anything from a single RAW bass track to a full mix of instruments. However, the focus must be on the bass riff.
The bass riff needs to be created using a real stringed bass instrument, so that would include electric or acoustic bass (fretted or unfretted), Chapman stick, double bass - even cello perhaps
Keep it to a maximum of 50 seconds. This is about riffs, not songs.
Send your entry (as an mp3) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Include your forum name in the email, but let us know if you would like your entry to be anonymous.
I'll try to upload the tracks soon after I receive them, rather than wait until the end.
Feel free to describe how you created your entry, your inspiration, techniques whatever.... It would be good to get a discussion going.
Voting will start soon after the submission deadline of 24th January 2018, with each voter selecting their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.
First choice gets 5 points - Second choice gets 3 points - Third choice gets 1 point
Voting will end on 11.30pm 31st January 2018
The order and scores of the three people with the most votes will be announced soon after the voting ends. Although it's not really about winning and there are no prizes. Think of it as forum team building, learning from each other ...
It's not a competition.
