1. when 10 12 is played with a pull off, and then the next note is 9 or 8, I don't think the pull of from 12 will be executed with the pinky.
Instead it would be always with the third finger, and then the index will go down to 9 or 8.
2. Sometimes EOF looks too far ahead, i.e. if there is an 8 several beats ahead, he will position the FHP to suggest playing a hole series of 10, 11 with 3rd and 4th finger, which is not natural. Maybe its better not to look further than 2-3 beats.
I think it's always easier to start with a lowest fret, and keep it as long as possible,
from the 12th fret even a note on 16 doesn't require a FHP change when a following fret is again a 12th
3. Slides ups are still a mess. Logically a slide up will always cause a change of FHP.
Question is which.
If a slide goes up from 12 to 14, but then the next note will be a 12 again,
it's natural to slide with the 3rd finger, the index will be on fret 10.
After the slide, the index will then be on the right 12th fret, which is very helpful, specially if it's played on an other string.
Maybe it's just me but I often lose orientation of where my fingers end up after some slides.
4. One thing I forgot to mention : If on a single note the finger is set to 1, the calculated FHP will set it as a position of the index finger. It may not be a big deal to add a logic that if the finger is set to 3, the position of the index will be 2 frets lower.
I'm afraid this topic will be closed quickly, but we play for free, in our garage here, while those who must pay a license want to make profit out of the artists and have professional charters (probably very low paid). Let's keep the garage closed, while they keep every door open to make more profits, be it hunting freebirds by law, forgetting they would have drowned by now, without our garage.
I agree on the aesthetic, and considering the speed of the scrolling, it doesn't really matter, I just like to experiment to see what can be done to fool software. I checked a few examples, and can't see nothing against your logic, for slide up and downs with any fingers.
Even if the FHP jumps back to the previous position after the slide, it tells the player he has to reposition back his hand.
Since EOF imports sliding grace notes as slides leading into the note, should it just mark the grace note with linknext then? Yes, must be a nextlink, in case of a slide, I've never seen a 2nd pick, because logically a grace note belongs to his principle note.
Such a slide is in EJ-Manhattan Tab (Guitar1) at bar 10
No slide in GP should logically be imported as Hammer on/ Pull off
EJ-Manhattan Tab bar 26,27,39, 40 ...
Ghost notes mean entirely different things than with Rocksmith/Rock Band authoring.
Agreed, and Ghost notes sustaining a same previous notes must not be imported, as this tends to make the tabs less readable.
EJ-Manhattan Tab bar 39, 87 (6)
Ghost notes different in pitch from a previous note are played slightly touched, almost as a muted noted, they are interesting to import.
In The Patrolman Tab (lead) bar 41 (17) they are audible, but well hidden among many sustained ghost notes.
Do official charts usually prefer leaving the string unused or do they usually author them as muted strings? I'd rather stick with the official method as a default, but I can always add a function to remove string muted notes in chords if people would find that useful.
A charter raised my attention, and I was really surprised, how badly RS14 recognized some 3 finger chords with a muted string in-between. In the official Eric Johnson - Cliff of Dover, a chord has no green muted string.
In Eric Johnson Manhattan cdlc, the Tab starts with a muted string in chords. Never can I get the 6x8 detected.
Strums are not exotic, I get them regularly. The duration to play them is defined in GP.
if played really slow, I define a Chord Fret Handposition and split up a chord in individual notes, if they are not split in GP.
They may appear like this : The 3 ways in GP sound more or less the same.
Is there any way EoF could convert grace notes? It's a pain in the ass when a song has a bunch of grace notes and i have to manually replace grace notes throughout the song. Maybe convert them into a regular note with a slide or hammer/pull off?
This has been discussed here a year ago, and the problem seems grace notes are attached to the following note, without a timing of their own. I don't know if GPalong handles these notes to make it easier to import. Same goes for Ghost notes that aren't a sustain of previous notes.
Their importance to music is underrated, but when I play "Ween - A tear for Eddie", without ghost or grace notes, people say "nice", but when I play with these "decorations" they say "WOW". It's not important for Headbangers though.
I donated because I could read a list of donations and expenses. I can't find this document anymore, if you want donations, we want transparency to agree. It would be fine to include a column "version" (0.1, 1.0,2.0) in the cdlc search and in the file names
