    My goal is to average 100 votes per battle per round. I hope the riff-offs become popular enough for that to happen.

    i was wondering if the timeframe (lead up to the holidays) lead to diminished participation .. if so, perhaps we'll see more consistent participation in the next tourney ...

    congrats to all, especially the Riff Master himself, cyberBKP.

    And congrats to all who made it further than I did. Totally shocked and yet not surprised it was ex250 who beat me in R1. I thought for sure it was Diocletian


    Anyhoo, let's get jiggy with the 2nd Tournament
    you guys in R1 going head to head was my favorite battle I gotta say.

    Congrats to GoDrex, and to all competitors!

    This was kind of rough for me. I lost the first round by three votes only to "win" when J Moose quit in a huff. I then lost the second round by one vote, a margin Mrs Dashing considers "statistically insignificant". So yeah, I'm the biggest loser of the tournament: I lost twice!

    Do I get a prize for being the forums official worst riffologist?

    so, how do the guys who submitted entries that got some forum flack for not being riffs feel about said flack? do you see the objection? do you stand by your entry as a riff? do you see the objection but stand by your entry as a riff anyway? other?

    i am curious as to how this 'riff definition' will play out over the next several tourneys

    I've already rejected a submission for the January 2010 Riff-Off because it wasn't close enough to my definition of what a riff should be.

    I had a blast with this.

    I hated to lose in the semi's to cyberBKP, but I don't disagree with the result.

    I'm really glad everyone enjoyed this so much.

    I also didn't realize my tone was distinctive enough to be recognized like that... very surprising!

    And something to be proud of. The most difficult thing for a musician is to find a distinctive voice. Congrats.

    I had fun with this one. Lost out in the first round, but it inspired me to come up with better stuff for the second edition of the contest. Looking forward to it!
