    Default Game: Riffmaster 2012, volunteers who can record audio/video requested

    I'm starting a new game because a few of the guys on Jolly's enjoyed the performance component of it. I for one enjoy discovering new bands that may not have enjoyed mainstream status and have slipped under my generational radar.

    The rules of Riffmaster 2012 are simple and non-competetive:

    Each week, I will select a letter of the alphabet. All participants of this game will select a band that begins with the letter of the alphabet and record a video/audio clip (maximum 1 minute) from a song of theirs. This can be a riff, a fill, a chorus, a solo, anything that showcases that band and that song. There are 52 weeks in a year, which means each letter will be repeated once. There will be 7 participants at any given time. If you do not record a clip within the week's time, you will receive a red flag. A second absence will remove your position as a riffmaster and a new volunteer will take your place. Of course, special exceptions will be made for reasonable absenteeism. This game will formally begin this Monday, 11/26/2012. Start listening to your old albums.

    4. TheLivingDead
    5. ex-250
    6. formula73
    7. slyfoxx

    PM me with your interest in this game. By the end of this game, we should have a huge catalog of song samples across a ton of genres and improve our musicianship.

    Haha...I'm definitely guilty of the latter. Apologies.

    9unslin9er, is Yngwie Malmsteen(for instance) a "Y" or a "M"?

    For the sake of this game and easy Googling, only given/personal names will correspond to the alphabet.
    Yngwie Malmsteen would fall under "Y"

    Groovy idea! I'm in.

    Let me ask you though, do we have within a full week to get something recorded for the specific letter?

    Also... Why not have it completely open to the forum instead of just 7 people? Thinking it'd be a lot better that way. The more the merrier, no?

    Like Jolly said, while everyone's playing and gear is respected on this forum, it is very easy for a a collaboration like this to go south with bickering about rules and regulations and what should be done or not.

    I'd like to keep it simple and small for now. That's why I made it so that if someone can't post or keep up with the schedule (myself included) they are free to drop out or have someone act as proxy. As long as each of the 7 players makes a post every week, we should have an amazing library going.

    Of course, I ask all members reading this thread to be respectful as spectators. You are more than free to start your own thread, but let us have our game in peace and avoid slander or trolling.

    Yes. Players have 1 full week to post a video.

    In the interest of keeping this as organized as possible, please make all requests to join through PM. Please do all ass-kissing and high-fiving through PM as well. Remember it's not a contest, just to expand our personal rock catalog and listen in on each others' gear. If this thread isn't your thing and you have no desire to join, please keep it to yourself. There are some of us who want it to work. Thanks in advance.

    I'd love to but this is going to crash and burn like Jolly's. I spent a good hour up there in the middle of the night recording a bunch of clips through my crappy Iphone to get back and see the thread nuked. I won't do it again.

    Riffmaster 2012 starts promptly tomorrow morning ~0900 hours.
    I need (2) more volunteers! Who's going to man-up and show us their chops?
    We WILL go on with 5 players. Hopefully people will jump on the bandwagon once they see the creativity involved.

    See y'all tomorrow.

    Count me in for any future variations that use original riffs, but this will be fun to watch from the sidelines.

    Registration for Riffmaster 2012 is officially closed at this time!

    Hope everyone is working off that tryptophan from their systems from the feast! Get your fingers warmed up and camcorder memory sticks cleared!
    This S#IT is on!

    Testing...



    Whoa, it worked. N?! The letter N? Really? Nazareth is the only thing I could think of. So here's the basic riff to "Son of a...girl dog" or is it "Hair of the Dog"? Anyhoo...

    That's why I got busy early. Well actually I had in my mind that "A" would be first and worked up a nice solo that wasn't ac/dc or aerosmith and then I found out it was "N". I got nervous 'cause I could only think of Nickelback and Nazareth and I really only know two Nback songs and both would not have been too good here.
