#270332 Made a layla cover with help of rocksmith!

Posted by Rodman on 10 December 2017 - 03:37 AM

Nicely played!!! Great skill.


The real only tiny thing i can add is you might wanna try to play the bass a little less guitarlike ;) ?


If you like you can join the Championships - (see my signature) i think you´ll be right starting in masterclass (ar at least advanced).



#268569 How can I tell if I'M STRUMMING RIGHT?

Posted by Rodman on 16 November 2017 - 11:39 AM

And listen to how it sounds!!!!!!!


Lower the volume of the music or mute it even, and keep the guitar vol at 100, then play and listen.


You might even find recording of your playing and listening to it useful - if you don´t wanna miss with recording settings and audio exclusivity, just use your cellphone to audiorecord!!!!

#265465 Does anyone have a dual monitor fix?

Posted by Rodman on 06 October 2017 - 10:09 AM

1) Update the nvida driver!

2) if there is still a problem try to make the other monitor primary and check

3) if still persists try windowed mode.

4) if persists delete (after backup) the .ini file in your rocksmith root dir

And report back. I've been running rs on multiple systems with usually 2-3 monitors includind beamers and all is Great.

We make that work!

#253354 Recommended CDLC & CDLC Packs?

Posted by Rodman on 12 May 2017 - 02:37 AM

Yes, at the championship we care a lot about quality. And subpar cdlcs are skipped or optimized togetherbwith the original charter!

Far more than 500 songs have been validated, played and categorised for difficulty. All nicely written down in google docs files.

But you wont need those ;) as you get a song of your playing level any other week to work on!

Join the CS!

You want a name of a charter with files of maximum quality and optimal tones - you wanna have a go for @fripponomic customs.

#253162 Did rocksmith teach anyone here how to play guitar?

Posted by Rodman on 09 May 2017 - 06:20 AM

@unclemiller - yes! I highly recommend playing over an external amp all the time. I personally use a passive ABY splitter box with a guitar cable on input, output A) guitar cable to my line6 spider15 amp (with floorboard) and output B ) Rocksmith Cable to PC.

In Game Guitar is muted. The Rec Output from the Spider goes into line-in from the PC´s Soundcard so i get absolutely 0-lag and real amp audio over the PC´s Audio Output that can also be used to record for RS videos etc., and the guitar tones and volume is controlled over the floorboard.

I only use 4 tones (A good acoustic one / ACDC (crunch) / a Metallica Rhythm / a Megadeth Lead) from the line6 library, but they sound tons better than most of the ingame ones and it feels much more like really covering a song. One very important thing is that you have to set your guitar volume high so you can hear what you are playing. When using ingame sound i set mixer "music" to max 75% and "guitar" to 100%.

#253089 Did rocksmith teach anyone here how to play guitar?

Posted by Rodman on 08 May 2017 - 05:14 AM

Was just about to write the same as @Mortalo


1) Join the Championship - it makes you play! and it makes you play and practice songs you would have never without the competition.

And you get them exactly on your skill level every week.

Besides we try to keep the standard of the selected songs very high, so only well made customs here.


2) Rocksmith is way too forgiving - trying to aim for the higher score is the wrong way. You gotta listen extremely carefull esp. regarding rhythm and accenting and while you improve you get the higher score. It is just simply the most optimal way to read tabs, the way i see it.


Rock on!

#247745 Issues with making progress

Posted by Rodman on 27 February 2017 - 07:44 AM

If Motivation is a problem because of lack of fitting songs -

as said above - really give the Championship a try... not only check out the songs, but join in and fight for the weeks win and a few points in the leaderboard.


You get served only excellent quality cdlcs every week, and loads of them.

Like me there are a lot of players over there that did not miss one in over 100 weeks after joining!


Give it a shot, it´s good for you!

#234150 Rocksmith remastered discussion (part 2)

Posted by Rodman on 21 October 2016 - 02:28 AM

To everyone whose CDLCs show up but do not play (stuck at beginning of song, only amps show up or whatever). I have spent many hours helping a friend with that issue last week so if you are in the same boat that is likely to be the fix:


1) make sure and check twice that there is ONLY the ONE .dll (dl link red banner) NAMED RIGHT (no (1) ) in the ROOT FOLDER of RS14 as described.


if the issue is still there


2) inside steam do an INTEGRITY CHECK:

Right-Click the game in your Steam library. Click 'Properties'. Navigate to 'Local Files' tab. Click 'Verify integrity of game cache'.

If there are errors - THATS THE PROBLEM!!!!.


If after the Integry check the issue persists


3) - remove STEAM (RS14 reinstall was not enough) !

    - run CCleaner registry cleaner (use google and download for free)

    - reinstall STEAM, RS14rem, place .dll

    - enjoy



@ LaceyB - regarding your signature - (cough) .... there is a dedicated bass championship held every single week in the classes beginner, intermediate, advanced and masterclass, and yes - bass only tracks are used and very very welcome ... you are invited to put up to 4 into our Song Selection List ... maybe the thing missing is you at the competition ;)

#233912 Rocksmith remastered discussion (part 2)

Posted by Rodman on 19 October 2016 - 09:23 AM


So.. while for me everything works i won´t say fine but as expected, a friend of mine is deep in trouble.


After the update,

after replacing the .dll propperly (Win 10),

after 100% fixing,

after steam integrity checking,

after using a new profile

after setting settings to default

still all his cdls show up but all crash on playstart - notehighway won´t show up, only the amps (officials and RS1 work)


Anyone has experienced/solved this?


(right now he is deleting/reinstalling cherubrock and after that uninstalling/registry cleaning RS and reinstalling after my suggestion but i doubt that to help)




after deleting / reinstalling Cherub Rock

after deleting, registry cleaning and reinstalling of RS14rem

CDLCs crash


please help

has anyone ever experienced and fixed that?





It was a steam error, after complete reinstall of steam and after registry cleaning before that it worked again.

It was most probably just a coincidence that it happened with the RS Update and deffo it had nothing to do with our DLL - that is good news. THX everyone!

#231763 Remastered messed up scoring?

Posted by Rodman on 06 October 2016 - 01:59 AM

Meanwhile - as they still didnt implement the Score Attack Mastery (which is soooo annoying for Championship players cause after your final and best run you have to go for another one in LAS to have your real mastery shown at song selection :godmode: risking to do even better not being counted for the CS awards) you can as long as there is no fix just keep playing in SCORE ATTACK mode without your songs stats getting messed up!

#226069 Faith loss in guitar playing

Posted by Rodman on 22 August 2016 - 07:31 AM

Well maybe for you it is too late but the right thing in that situation would have been to remove the useless pressure.


The general agreement you have to find with yourself is only

"I like to play guitar"

Nothing more, nothing less, when you can agree with that you will very soon learn that you don´t try to reach some senseless goal like being able to play like some musician you might know or play a much to hard song you just cannot atm, but that the goal is already achieved: You are playing the guitar at your level - which on RS you luckywise always can.

The route is the goal. (or are you gonna stop when you have achieved a certain level ;) )

Progression is an achievement of time you can in no way effectively force.

From the negative perspective - if playing the guitar at your level is no fun at all then yes it is much too time-consuming and egoistic to carry on, if - like for about all of us here it is go for another 200hours and check back on the songs that did disappoint you right now.

#226049 Advice on a new guitar

Posted by Rodman on 22 August 2016 - 06:13 AM

I have quite a bunch of guitars right now and the lowest (and best) action is no doubt the




PRS 24 SE Mike Akerfeldt (Opeth) - extremely great guitar with a nice price too.
