Riff of the Month 64 Challenge

I appear to have forgotten the start a new Riff of the Month Challenge, which I didn't spot until I went to upload my entry.

Anyway, this is the 64th Riff of the Month (RotM) Challenge.

The challenge is now open, and remains open for submissions until midnight on 24th May 2021 (I guess I'd better give it an extra month)

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.

Entries will be loaded into the playlist below

  • Incoming.

    Recorded with my phone (samsung voice recorder). Wanted to keep it lo fi.
    I was sitting in front of my speaker cab. Phone wad fairly close to my guitar. So I gues that is why the recording has some clean sound to it. Picked up the "acoustic" sound of my D'Angelico Premier EXL1.

    very good! I had to listen to yours first as I was thinking of doing this for once, but given your title thought it may be too similar  =)
