Here's the 37th RAW Riff of the Month (RRotM) Challenge, being run by @stratman3142 and @TTony.

The challenge is now open, and remains open for submissions until 11:30pm on 23rd June 2018.

RAW Riff of the Month (RRotm) is different to the other (RotM) riff challenge because you are only allowed to submit a recording with one layer of guitar, but you can use standard guitar effects such as wah, distortion, delay, modulation etc. This is all about one amazing riff and nothing else. 

All you have to do is ...
Write a riff.
Record it with one layer of guitar (standard guitar effects are also permitted)
Keep it to a maximum of 50 seconds. This is about riffs, not songs.

Send your entry (as an mp3) to riffs@theFB.co.uk
Include your forum name in the email.


Voting will start soon after the submission deadline of 23rd June 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 30th June 2018
The order and scores of the top three entries will be announced soon after the voting ends. If there are 8 or more entries, then the order and scores of those in the top half will be announced.

No prizes. It's just for fun.

As people submit their entries, I'll post them below to hopefully promote some discussion on approaches used.

    Hopefully we'll get at least one more entry. If there are less than three entries I might carry things over to the following month if @DesVegas is OK with that.

    I'll try and get one in in time.

    I have another dep gig in a couple of days (they're like buses!!) and am currently suffering from a lazy-guitarist-has-to-suddenly-practice blister on my little finger - who knows what state my fingers will be in after the tomorrow's practice and  the gig on Wednesday?

    I should manage to get one in before the deadline. 

    Having an annoying time of The Little People not going to sleep until late and am working on a few songs (including trying to record this year's Christmas song which should always be done in June/July)

    Strapped it up with surgical tape and ran through the set (c. 30 mins) here at home earlier. I'll tape it up again at tomorrow's band practice and at the gig on wednesday if necessary. It's mostly rhythm guitar so it doesn't get in the way too much.

    Whoever called it "rush hour" should not be allowed to name anything else.
