If you’re anything like us, your hard drive will be full of unfinished songs – bits of music that never quite got past the ideas stage. Maybe you couldn’t quite work out which direction to take a track in, or simply decided that it was… well, a bit rubbish.
Chances are that many of these loops, grooves and phrases are being left to rot, never to be worked on again, but now you can give them a new lease of life by setting them free on rifflet.com.
The idea is simple: you post your rifflets – musical clips of less than 60 seconds – for others users to listen to and download. With any luck, some other musician will be able to do what you couldn’t and turn your idea into a finished song. And of course, you can also browse and download other people’s musical off-cuts.
All the content on the site is tagged, so it’s easy to search by instrument type. MusicRadar is desperate for a Polynesian nose flute lick to finish of its jazz/punk opus, so we're off to try and find it.
