Okay, so I'm bored as **** today, and then I thought of this idea. I'm sure something similar has been done, but I think mine has a *slightly* different concept .

So we play it like this: person A will post a short riff, about 4-8 measures, and then person B will continue off at the LAST MEASURE of person A's riff, and poster C will continue B's, and so on.

Rules are :
1. You have to continue on the LAST measure of the previous poster
2. Keep it short (4-8, a bit more is fine, just try not to make it more than 16, this is a RIFF game after all)
3. You could change the tempo, instrumentation, anything, as long as the notes on AT LEAST one of the track is the same (so you could change/add drums, bass whatever, as long as guitars or keys or whatever is the same)
4. To keep this in order, please quote the poster's riff you continued on, or state when you're gonna go next, okay?
5. If you want, you could crit and rate the riff you continued from (not mandatory, though)

Examples are in attachment (file1 is poster A's, file2 is poster B's, continuing poster A's).

I'm giving the first guy a choice, whether to continue from my second attachment, or if he/she wants go first and create a new one. After that you all have to continue from the latest post, though.

Okay, I added onto yours, am tired, and working heavily on a song, also I am really unfamiliar with the genre which didn't help, so I just did a little variation on what you did. Great idea for a game though.

Btw your riff thing sounds really cool. I like it.

No, man, you're doing it wrong! You only take the last bar of the previous post (in this case mine), and expand from it. You don't continue the whole riff, you start a new one from the last bar of the riff before you! That way, we wouldn't end up writing a song, since this is just for fun . If you do it like that, you could turn mine into, idk, maybe a death metal, or classical . The possibilities are endless!
#4
okay, so every single post is a whole different 4-8 measures with only the first measure in common with the last measure of the previous? sounds pretty cool.

yup, pretty much that. you could turn what is previously a punk song to an epic classical orchestra if you're crazy and creative . Btw, only at least one track must be the same, you could change the drums or bass, or tempo or whatever, so long as one track is the same.

So you playing or not?

Wait, so each person's post has a new riff that DOESN'T Include the last persons riff except for the last measure?

I'm a person.

Yup, but from what I've seen, yours was that you gave 'em a riff to start, and they continue it till it was a full song. Wasn't it like so? Now with this, it's only something that should be fun and taken lightly .

So..... Anyone wanna play this? Could be a good way to get inspirations .
#10
Yes, it can change genre. Now since nobody seems interested, I think I'll have a go . See, what I did is, I took Regression's, some sort of funk/rock, and made it into a ballad .

For those who want to go after me, you can take the easy way continuing from track 2, or be more creative and go from track 1 . You can change this to almost anything lol, both tracks are quite easy.

Yep, you're *mostly* doing it right.... Just that you don't include the previous riff, too, you start a new one from the last bar....

Oh, and what the hell did you just made???? Brilliant!

Anyone wanna have a go? C'mon, people! Let's get this going!
#14
well, this isn't really anything but it made me laugh so I liked it

Edit: sorry, I saved it with the synth thing muted. you'll need to uncheck the "solo" thing on the guitar.

but to clear things up, the reason it made me laugh is I added in a couple really simple yet impossibly useless lines. I didn't really take much time for this one maybe I'll put in more effort on another.

*reserves next spot*

I had something for the other one so now I'm tweaking it to fit the last bass riff of jake the peg.

Okay, here it is. another "" one. I'm thinking I'm the only one really having fun with this. It is a game after all

please continue the rhodes piano thing too. I like that

Oooh! Oooh! I'll go next .

Jake the Peg: damn, reggae, nice! see, this is what I mean, changing genres and stuff. Mildly interesting, and a good way to kill boredom, you're limited only by your creativity .

Its_Rock77: what the fuck were you smoking, lad? gotta be something real strong . Yea, it's all about fun!

strat07: I lol'd. srsly. reggae --> hardcore = lol wut? unfortunately, Its_Rock77 posted his first, so I'm sorry, but I'm gonna continue from his.

I don't know what the hell is this anymore.... To the guy going after me: PLEASE make it sane and normal!

alright, well I still don't know whether or not it worked for anyone else so I took the time (long time ) to replicate it since I could see it but not copy or play it. so I'll reupload it for you as well as my own extension once I finish it.

Edit: Okay, this one started serious. I was thinking of just making a little rock riff. and then I changed my mind it's still kinda normal but I added some weird sounds to make it cooler

^ nice, I love the harmonics. could really work well as a real song, too. Oh, and we're at riff 11, now, actually .

Anyway, let's make this a little bit more interesting, shall we? Time for some good ol' prog .

*To anyone who wants to continue : Try to keep the 13/16, please *

god, I am so addicted to this game.

this one is so stupid I can't even take it. and I tried to keep it in 13/16 for you, MoE. but I kept the drum beat since I don't think anyone has done that yet.

whoevers next just pick any measure of mine cause the last couple are either copyrighted material or just a whole note. so just make it interesting.
