@Xellot It has been hidden because that's not how you report issue with CDLC. Use the report button on the problematic CDLC and we'll deal with it.

#260519 Search on genre in CDLC Ignation

Posted by firekorn on 12 August 2017 - 08:25 AM

@Utero You can always take a look there : http://customsforge....rum/132-genres/


Also it's not that it won't ever happen but in the current state of ignition, it would be a nightmare.

How do you learn to position all your fingers at once in a single move in chords

Practice, there's only that. We all started by putting fingers one by one to make the shape and i still do on some jazzy chords that i encounter once every year. Practice is what makes it easy and fast.



Or it will simply start working after a lot of years playing chords.

Well, practice is practice, being exercices or playing random chords. As long you keep at it and play the chord you'll get better at it.



The only Chords i get without the need of looking to the guitar and placing them one by one like that, are the one where you only fret two contiguous string along 3 frets you know:

Those are called power chords and they are the most common and basic chord that is used everywhere.


Also practice the chords lessons in Rocksmith, they will be simple exercices around chord, starting from the most common and basics and going up in difficulty as you'll get in harder lessons. It's a great way to practice chord specifically as are the arcade games for it.

#260234 I sometimes read different suggestions for fingering on the same chord which...

Posted by firekorn on 07 August 2017 - 10:35 AM

For the first i don't think i would ever use the second fingering and you will never see it in any official DLC as far as i can remember.


For the second ones it will really depends on what's around. The first one means that you'll probably need to reach something with the 3rd of 4th finger on another strings while the second ones is more likely to add the 1st finger somewhere on a lower fret.


As for the last that's the kind of situation where you either gonna move to a power chord kind of shape or simply do another barre quickly like in that kind of situation :



Overall it's mostly what is around that will make one fingering makes more sense than another.

#259578 How do you make to keep your fingers relaxed and near the strings

Posted by firekorn on 29 July 2017 - 12:43 PM

@Overpopulation It's something you need to get used to, relax and take it slow. When you'll start getting really at ease with fretting an moving around you'll be way less tense and be able to use minimal movement.

#259212 I downloaded some songs but it doesn't show on Learn a Song

Posted by firekorn on 24 July 2017 - 05:27 AM

@Totu the easy way : Cherub Rock

The complex way : whatever DLC but that means you'll have to adjust every single CDLC you dl to use the appID of the DLC you own.

Are you sure you bought Cherub Rock DLC?

#258269 Can I use a portable guitar amp as a speaker for my PC when I play RS2014?

Posted by firekorn on 11 July 2017 - 03:37 PM

Connect the headphone out of your PC to the aux input of the amp and you should be good to go.

#257642 Octave Slide

Posted by firekorn on 04 July 2017 - 05:22 AM


Probably worth to check some of the Rise Against songs too as i recall they heavily use octaves but i'm not sure about the slide part.

#257517 7 string Ibanez

Posted by firekorn on 02 July 2017 - 11:50 AM

@spacey7 there's already songs that are for 7 strings in B std or A std (for eg) on CF though it will only ever display 6 strings.

#256989 Latest EOF releases (7-25-2017)

Posted by firekorn on 25 June 2017 - 01:37 PM

@raynebc even if the grace note isn't linked to the next note, it's very doubtful the next note would be on a different fret regarding bend grace note. If anyone as actual tab using it, i'm not against presenting how i would expect it to show up in EOF but doing all cases where a grace note can be use and their equivalent in EOF would be a bit tedious especially considering that GPx to GP5 grace note with bend get fucked up pretty heavily which makes me think grace note should be avoided anyway.

#256794 Seeking tips for beginner @ 7 string

Posted by firekorn on 23 June 2017 - 10:16 AM

@QOTSANINSOADKORN Korn tuning is just a standard 7 string tune down by a full step so like a D std for guitar but with a low A added. There's no drop at all in korn tuning, it's just lower than standard.

#255921 When?

Posted by firekorn on 12 June 2017 - 10:24 AM

@dantheguy if you don't have any d3dx9_42.dll then skip on to the next step. This was meant for users that either had an outdated dll or one with an incorrect name.
