This is the 87th Riff of the Month (RotM) Challenge.

The challenge is now open, and remains open for submissions until midnight on 23rd June 2024.

All you have to do is ...

Write a riff. It could be anything from a single RAW guitar track to a full mix of instruments or a Bass guitar riff. However, the focus must be on the riff. Most entries will probably be guitar based riffs, but they don't have to be.

Aim to 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, 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 order and scores of the top three entries will be announced soon after the voting ends. 
No prizes. It's just for fun.

It's not a competition.

    It's in the playlist.

    It's somewhat longer than the aim of 50s, but the duration is only an aim and not mandatory. Sticklers for the rules have the option of only listening to the first 50s

    And you've exceeded the suggested duration aim by 3 seconds. Although you got closer than @monquixote, who exceeded it by about 97 seconds

    Exceeding the duration aim is not a problem, although I reserve the right to make jokes about it

    Bugger - I shouldn't have faded it out
    :(

    I thought Monqy's was a whole track ...

    As I have proved on multiple occasions I have no attention span and can't read instructions =)

    Sent one in. Inspired by recent purchases, in particular a Wudtone trem on the strat which has cleaned up the tone beautifully, plus a nice electric mistress clone. I wanted to capture the tone in the room, so set about using a condenser mic. A bit of a departure for me, since I typically use the Ox. An experiment, of sorts.

    Strat > Rothwell Love Squeeze > GE-7 > DFX Electric Mistress > DM-101 > ValvePower 18w > Tayden Great Brit > Citronic CCM1 condenser.

    Double-tracked on the middle pickup. Bit of eq in Reaper.
    This one goes to eleven

    Perhaps I won't bother with setting an aim of less than 50s next time :)   

    Just joking, the main thing is, I'm pleased that people participate.

    I think the 50 seconds thing is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules ;)

    Just to note that I'm going to have intermittent access to the internet, so there might be delays in uploading entries and in closing the challenge.
