#113937 Why are there no major band(s) in RS 2014? (Metallica, etc...)

Posted by richomat on 19 December 2014 - 06:07 AM in General Rocksmith

You are an old dude by the way.

I listen to Metallica since the 80's and by the way James Hetfield is 5 years older then me.

#113237 Jimi Hendrix Offical DLC 12 Song Pack!

Posted by richomat on 16 December 2014 - 04:06 PM in General Rocksmith

I'm gonna have to try Red House, but according to Riff Repeater website it has no bass and is Eb Standard (mine was way off pitch).  There are so many versions of Jimi songs wonder which one they used...
And I lost my Little Wing Live at the Albert Hall too...  so sad :(

Noel Redding played a guitar on the original recording of Red House.
Red House was one of the first recordings of The Experience and Noel switched from guitar to bass later on.
taken from Wikipedia: Redding added, "I had borrowed a terrible old hollow-body electric guitar from someone at the studio ... because I liked to play along on rhythm to familiarise myself with a sequence, not being quite at home on the bass yet". The guitar was tuned down one-half step, with the tone controls set to resemble a bass guitar.

#113215 Why are there no major band(s) in RS 2014? (Metallica, etc...)

If you define "major" as the bands/artists who sold the most records then The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc. would be on top of the list.
The Beatles have sold more records then AC/DC, Metallica and Guns N'Roses together.

#109997 Can you recommend any Stratocasters / SG?

Posted by richomat on 02 December 2014 - 04:46 PM in General Rocksmith

with Hendrix as your avatar it has to be a strat.. i have a white mexican standard with maple fretboard.. plays like a dream and the neck feels better then the warmoth neck on my partscaster.. the mexican standards from the last production years are a huge step up in quality.. even the electronics are US pots and switches.. i even left the ceramic pickus in the guitar.. i screwed them down almost flush to the pickguard.. they are very versatile and i like them better then the seymour duncan aps-1 in my partscaster.. only drawback is: the neck has only 21 frets

#109061 New guy with a question :D

Posted by richomat on 27 November 2014 - 03:01 PM in General Rocksmith

... wow, and also Rocksmith 2014 is only 9,99 € ???
Does anyone know if those are offers for a limited time? I might grab Rocksmith 1 and the disk importer...

RS 2014 is still at 29,95€
The RS2014 boxed edition is 24,99 and the steam code is 29,95€.. How strange is that? The boxed edition includes the DVD and shipping and is cheaper then the steam code which is only a code send by mail..

#106369 What is the most underrated band(s)?

Posted by richomat on 16 November 2014 - 06:07 PM in Music Discussion

Bands that fit into the symphonic metal genre such as Nightwish and Within Temptation.  I say this because it seems like I can't talk to anybody about these bands without getting a strange look because they've never heard of them.

NIghtwish is HUGE in Scandinavia, and Within Temptation is also a well known band here.

Yeah but I wish these bands would be well known in America.  I honestly believe these bands could sell out 10,000 seat arenas over here but they end up playing in small venues.

Nightwish is also well known in Germany. The album Dark Passion was No. 1 in the Album-Charts.

#105242 No Ewan Dobson content or threads?

Posted by richomat on 12 November 2014 - 06:32 AM in General Rocksmith

Probably the most here are not into acoustic guitar stuff. Just try to find a thread about  e.g Tommy Emmanuel or Leo Kottke...

#104841 Your favorite blues cdlc?

Booooo!  Hours of work on Red House down the toilet :(

No it's not. It was hours of joy playing it. Thanks for the great CDLC man!
However I will also get the official Jimi pack.

#98388 Upgrading Fender Parts

Posted by richomat on 16 October 2014 - 06:31 PM in Gear Garage

i dont know about the cyclone.. but for strats and teles i swapped necks and bodies from squire, fender and warmoth without problems.. strat necks and bodies have rounded edges.. tele necks are square at the heel and dont fit into a strat body without some filing..

but beware: not every fender neck is build to the same specs.. there are necks with 4 screws and necks with 3 screws.. there are necks with or without microtilt screw..
