We challenge you to our #1RiffADay challenge for the month of September.

Are you stuck in a creative rut? Have you been wanting to learn how to play guitar/bass? Do you have one laying around? Then we challenge you to join us in our #1RiffADay challenge this month. We invite all you shredders out there to create 1 riff a day. It can be a finished riff or an unfinished one, we just want you to share your process with us. Last December‘s challenge was so rad that we just can’t wait to see more of your creativity!

For our first week, we chose a couple of standout riffs, here are our favorite:

#1RiffaDay 3 of 30. With the right drum beat, I think this would be fun. I really try to avoid using too many whole steps for a riff because I think they sound too predictable, but I’ve been focusing more on rhythm lately anyway. ????????‍♀️ #sheshreds #1rad #riff #guitar #bass #fivestring #musicman #subseries

DAY 5! Of the @sheshredsmag #1riffaday #1rad challenge. Here’s a riff I wrote in the spring on a writing retreat. I spent a long while sitting on a log trying to transcribe bird song. This riff turned into a full song, which I will play on Friday in Corvallis at the Majestic Theater where I’ll be opening for @shooktwins #sheshreds
