Brush Strokes & Rake Bends - How Should It Be Charted?

02 June 2017 - 04:11 AM

I've got a question. How do you guys think rake bends and brush strokes should be charted?


For brush strokes, would spacing the notes apart and marking it as an arpeggio work? Sort of like this:










Or would that not work due to notes landing off-beat? Is there a better way to chart/tab it, or should I just leave things like that as a standard chord?


For rake bends, how about palm muting the 3 open strings before the note you want to bend, and set it as a chord? something like this:










For those that aren't sure what techniques I'm talking about:


Rake Bend:

When you palm mute rake the open strings to get a percussive sound right before a bend. I believe SRV liked this technique.


Brush Stroke:

Basically just strumming a chord slowly so that you get a slightly more arpeggio sound of individual notes. A clear example of this would be the very first chord in So Far Away, which is a reverse brush stroke (same as a brush stroke, just strummed backwards/upwards instead of downwards)

Customsforge Malware Problem?

18 May 2017 - 01:24 PM

Whenever I use this site, I keep getting popups to malware/scams.


They're really annoying, too, have to close the entire browser because they keep popping up with dialogue boxes like "Security Alert, call this number: xyz" etc, and closing that box opens another, and you can't close the tab.


This isn't affecting me on Ignition.Customsforge, by the way.

Link Next Unpitched Slide

16 May 2017 - 04:49 AM

I'm making a custom, and it's all going good except for one thing:


The song ends with a slide out downwards. The first time around, I just charted it as one big un-pitched slide, but there's a small vibrato sustain before the note actually starts sliding out, and it isn't re-picked.


I've got it charted as so:


D String 16th fret (vibrato + link next) → Un-pitched slide to 0 


The problem is, this shows the first note (the vibrato) fine, but the slide at the end doesn't show up at all.


Surely it's possible to link next to an un-pitched side. I'm sure I've seen cases where it would have been impossible without it. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just a bug?


If needed, I can post screenshots and/or the _p.psarc file.
