Time for round #33 of the Fretboard Composition Challenge.

Every few months there'll be a composition challenge. It revolves around individuals or groups of forum members composing and recording music.

No prizes for this challenge. It's just for fun, a spur to creating, sharing, discussing music/recording and learning. Plus a way of testing the water with your creations and getting some feedback.

GUIDELINES -THEME
The theme for this one is: music for a SciFi film or TV show

To encourage entries the theme isn't mandatory, but you might get more votes if you do something that's in some way linked to the theme. That depends on how individuals choose to vote.

Compose a tune, or recycle something you've composed previously.

Picture: In addition to the music, try to create your own picture that relates to your selected theme/title. This isn't mandatory.

DATES AND VOTING
The submission deadline is midnight 30th September 2021
Voting will start soon after the submission deadline and run for about two weeks, 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
The entry with the most points wins.
The order and scores of the three people with the most votes will be announced soon after the voting ends.

SUBMISSION DETAILS
All recordings and pictures need to be sent via email to Compositions@theFB.co.uk
Songs to be submitted in mp3 format.
Pictures to be in jpg or png format.

ENTRY PLAYLIST
Entries will be posted in a playlist below as they arrive.

    I'll be back for this one .. I was away for eight months looking after my dad. He finally died last month. Looking forward to making some music - I haven't played a guitar in eight months.

    Remember, it's easier to criticise than create!

    Sorry to hear that @Fretwired

    I too have come up with an idea. Whether I can achieve it though remains to be seen (or heard)

    Sorry to hear that news @Fretwired, I hope you’re doing ok considering. Hopefully writing some music will feel a little cathartic.

    might have a go at this as well this month. The theme I can get behind.

    I did most of a rhythm guitar track last week. I was planning on doing a lead guitar track tonight, but it's too hot and sweaty to pick it up!

    Your guitar is so organic that it even gets sweaty?! That is very impressive indeed.
