Ok y’all, a quick and simple question to kick-off the new year in the ‘Rec forum…

Shall we keep and re-launch the monthly Noodle Bar challenge?
Or should we cull and consign it to the annals of Basschat history?

If only a small number of you want to keep it going that’s absolutely fine by me. Likewise, I don't mind putting it out to pasture if the consensus veers that way.

So make your voice heard and VOTE! We do love a good vote down here, innit…

Comments welcome in the thread below, including any suggestions for other stuff you'd like to see happening in this forum :)

i spend a lot of time on the recording forum, i don't really engage with the noodle bar.

no offence to those who take the time to do it, but listening to a 60 second "noodle" just doesn't do it for me, so I haven't listened to anything from it since the very first entry or two.

that said, anything that can get people playing is a good thing, but it just doesnt tickle my fancy.

It seems a good idea to me as it takes no time and only requires a few minutes to listen and vote.

I've never entered, I keep forgetting about it. I don't think it's a bad idea but I like the composition competition idea better. It wouldn't be fair of me to express my opinion either way as I don't take part. This isn't really helping, is it?

Ok I'm gonna get off the fence and put my two pennies in. I think you should either keep it or scrap it. There you go.
Everything's relative.

if i was to be brutal, the whole thing could be done within the confines of a single stickied thread, and anyone who has a noodle can stick it in there, the challenge element just means someone has to routinely set up and manage a thread which realistically only 3 or 4 people enter.

ultimately, the decision should lay with that person who does the leg work for it, but i don't see enough input or interest in it to justify keeping on top of it every month, especially given the compositions challenge is more popular.

I see the poll attracted all of three votes! Currently Haha.
I'm obviously up for keeping it going. I still think it was a good idea with good intentions. I think the recording section as a whole doesn't get enough attention. As I've said on many an occasion the rules were so simple practically anyone could join in. And while I think the main composition challenge is very good my thinking was that some people don't have the equipment, knowledge or time to put together a full composition.
So I thought the bare bones approach would attract some participation on the forum.

Maybe people just think its aimless noodling, which sometimes it is but it can be a section/passage of a song, a riff etc. Some have entered there isolated bass from the composition challenge.

I'm up for keeping it going as long as it gets some form of activity. You never know in 2017 it may become the next big thing haha.

Just one more thing. Maybe it would make it more interesting if we allowed use of a looper?

A wise google translation once said.
"Often musicians and any Poser express derogatory first if you arrive by Behringer equipment"

i think you could keep the concept, and open up the thread for more, including loops etc, still keeping it at 60 seconds.

don't think it is an idea that is popular enough to warrant being a competition, BUT a pinned thread to allow people to share what they have noodled cant be a bad thing.

Good comments so far. I'm going to leave this thread open until the end of the month before taking stock of things :)
