7 now. The competition is looking interesting, it's quite close. I don't want to set a deadline just yet as I'm hoping everyone who recorded will review, give it a few more days.

I think the whole group segregation is what might've sealed its fate. for the next round and perhaps competitions one big pool of riffs one big pile of reviews, no groups, just so everyone's involved from the get go and not having to wait forever, everyone writes say the first week, everyone reviews in the upcoming 2 or 3 days as to not have so much dead time.
#203
Yeah man that seems to be the way to go. Also, I'm going to be away again for the next four days at least so if the last three reviews get posted and I'm not around just carry on with round two, I should be back to post my riff and the leaderboard in time.

*Youtubes "Entrance of the Conflagration"*

Ouch. But in all seriousness, rhythm-wise it is similar (one of the reasons I went with this riff was cause lots of heavy metal bands use those "before the one"-type rhythms (does anyone know what it's called, or do you just call it syncopation?)), as well as having harmonic minor scale note-choices (sounds like it anyways). Can't really see more to it than that, but that might be cause I was kinda jamming on a whole different vibe than Trivium when I wrote it haha.

Poseur! You fed us poison and now our souls are tainted!

hahaha but awesome thanks man! an awesome riff always deserves a tab :P it didn't disappoint. though it seems yours won the round haha. it least IMO as well though.

was my guitar out of tune however? kinda didn't notice lol or maybe it was the note choices? idk lol here's a tab, also, I guess I best make sure my guitar's properly tuned lol

Haha, thanks. Yeah, I think it sounds a bit off-tune, you can hear it in that the chords sound dirtier than I think they're supposed to, but it's not all that bad, I get the idea perfectly well. I don't know, I'm a bit pedantic about being in tune sometimes. I'm not the greatest at tuning the guitar or anything, always takes me a while to get it just the way I want it to be, but I know it's pretty muchit bothers me if it's even slightly out of tune.

And as a fun side-note, due to the construction of the guitar, it's damn near impossible to have the whole guitar 100% in tune all across the neck, but that's a whole nother topic in itself.

My 3rd string is a three-quarter step flat past the 12th fret. It makes leads sound diabolical though

pfft mine sounds nothing like Trivium, poseur! and hahaha I can't tell tbh, I probably ****ed up my ear [which is why I used to beg for tabs at all times til one day I magically developed some decent skills at it] by never tuning my guitar to the right tuning of the song I was learning when I started playing guitar...

it was an acoustic and going from E to B to C cmon no. and well you must be incredibly bugged by Timeghoul lol and their weird tuning, ALSO SOMEONE FINISH BOILING IN THE HOURGLASS or Rainwound, someone figure out that one weird chord riff at like 1:00 :> I tried, I failed.

for what it's worth my next riff for the comp will probably.. have more powerchords, who knows I haven't decided what riff I wanna submit for Thrash/Speed lol decisions decisions

I think minor intervals work better when used in melodies rather than harmonies, because that is norsecore/metalcore territory.

#216

Would be nice to hear an answer to this question at least. There's only so many weeks we can let every round hang before everyone gets sick of paying attention to it. I think we should probably move on to the next round, these two can post their riffs on the thrash round if and once they get their reviews up.
#223
Abomination94, maybe it would be a good idea to make a schedule and edit it into the OP of the other topic. We wouldn't have to be strict about it, and if someone couldn't make a deadline it would probably be fine if they'd let it know beforehand, but I think it would help everyone and at least give us an idea of who's still active.
#224
7 riffs so far. Well, that's over half. The people who haven't yet done theirs, please just let us know if you're not going to. That way it doesn't have to fade away like the Your Move game. Instead it will just wither away, round by round, til there's only a few people and we realize there's no point anymore.

But hey, Strangles was wrong, it lasted longer than two weeks!
#226
I hope to have one soon, real life has gotten in the way for the most part.

I won't have time until this Friday, so don't kick me out before then.

Sorry, school life and such. I usually arrive home around 7 everyday, and I can't turn my amp up loud enough to record without pissing off my neighbors and my gf.

I will be glad to join in and provide crappy phone recordings of metal riffs played on acoustic, if it makes the thing go any longer.

Hey dudes, I'm back, sorry I was away longer than I thought I'd be. It's late here and I'm tired as fuck so I'll have my riff recorded and uploaded after work tomorrow. Great to see everyone didn't give up on this while I was gone!

The ending to my thrash riff reminds me of something but I can't figure it out. The entire thing is super generic regardless but the ending sounds like something and it's bugging me

I'll get my reviews up tomorrow, trying to decide if I will downtune my 6th string to spaghetti or keep it reasonable for the doom/stoner round.

Another forum struggles with this same issue:

http://www.returntothepit.com/view.php?formid=85421

Did blogs kill forums?

I can see why it could happen. They have more advanced threading/commenting now, with less of the drama and stupid features people added during the heyday of forums.

I don't understand why anyone would regularly comment on a blog...

I always don't know how anyone could even stand to read a thread on that eyesore of a forum, wtf is that it physically pained me to see it for half a second
#237
I suspect that Reddit killed forums actually, which is ironic since Reddit is basically a badly laid-out forum. Also, Twitter and other "social" media.

Hey so I've moved to a new city and I'm currently living in my bands practice space so I don't have internet. There is free wireless in the city center which I am using right now but it's a long walk and I won't be able to do it regularly. Keep going with the competition, I'll still be playing. I'll try get my riffs up on time but I might have trouble, and you might not see my reviews till the very end of the competition, or at least they'll be really late. Sorry for the inconvenience dudes.
