Metal Forum Riff Competition

How To Play

Group 1 begins the game having a week to write and record a riff fitting the genre for that round, once all riffs have been uploaded Group 2 reviews the riffs by commenting and giving each contestants riff a score out of 5. Once all Group 2's reviews have been submitted it's their turn to write and record riffs and so it repeats until all 6 rounds have been completed. At the end of each round every player will have a score out of 55 and at the end of the game, a total score out of 330. By this point a clear winner should be determined and we will have crowned our first Lord of the Riff!

In the unlikely event of a tie, a 7th round will be played. In that round, players are free to write in whatever style of metal they want.

Alright, lets do this!

Rules:
- No layering guitars or other instruments are to be present in your recording. Single guitar track only.
- Other than distortion, no other effects will be allowed as some players do not have the same luxuries you might.
- Any and all tunings are allowed.
- If you miss out on a review or recording a riff for any round, you are out of the game. Only commit to playing if you’re sure you’ll be able to participate for the entire game.
- All entries have to be actual recordings. You can’t just submit a tab or something. If you want to play but have no amp or anything at all to record, you can get a player from the other group to record the riff for you.

Are the reviews going to be posted here for all to see asap, or do we show the all the ratings after the two weeks are gone (avoiding influence on opinions)?

I also want to know this ^

So all group two has to do is wait for them to be uploaded and review/rate them this week? Are people supposed to post in this thread when they have their riffs uploaded?

I said I could do it via writing a tab or something, but I can record a video if you want? I won't get far, anyway. So is each round per week or can I just record one big-ass video?

EDIT: actually, it's probably not gounna work. Just take me off the list. Will be easier.

Also, one option we could do is post votes in the IRC channel so they aren't displayed on UG. All of the messages can be logged so that the info won't be lost.. and my account is on there 24/7 so I manage that info. Furthermore, all of the posts have a time signature which can make voting more time sensitive and the game more time sensitive. With UG you have to refresh the page all the time but with IRC everything is in real time.

Good point, I didn't think of that. Yeah, everyone write your reviews, decide your votes etc and save them to word or something. Once both groups riffs are uploaded, then we'll post our reviews to this thread.

Yeah, post links to your riff here when you have it uploaded.

When is the deadline for group 1 to have all of their stuff uploaded? When is the deadline for group 2 to review/rate them?

I'm assuming the deadline for group 1 to upload will be this Friday. But it looks like the deadline to post votes and reviews won't be for a week after group 2 has uploaded their riffs.

I give this 2 weeks before nothing actually happens and it all falls to shite. Not knocking the idea, that's just how things go around here. Feel free to prove me wrong though.

Excellent, good work man.

Also, for the sake of keeping this thread tidy, only post here with links to your riffs and your reviews. Any other discussion related to the game can take place in the original thread I made.

Here's my entry, I currently dont have access to my amp, or, my computer, or anything really except for my guitar, my half broken digitech pedal, and a half broken pair of headphones and my phone.
This is my entry, I submitted this now incase I dont get to submit before the deadline, but consider it only a "draft" of soughts.
If i get the chance I will record the exactly the same riff again at a higher quality, otherwise, this is legit entry try and get past the recording quality lol

Hopefully you can, that was pretty quiet and unclear.

Anywho, fvck it, I guess I might as well upload my sloppy cellphone takes now, doesn't look like I'll be re-recording with better gear. I uploaded the first half of my submissions here: http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Sanitarium91/music/
