  1. Hey all, It's been a tough week for me as I lost my mother a few days ago. Only 6 months ago I lost my father as well. I've been reflecting on my life and what to do for the future of it. I want to continue supporting CustomsForge as best as I can and the best way to do that is to shut down donations permanently as I've been having issues with PayPal & taxes. For the sake of my sanity I am moving the website to a Patron-only support model as it is easier to track and deal with. That way I can resolve my debt issues caused by the site (that is 100% my fault, I didn't know wh

  5. Travis - Turn Lead & Bass, been really meaning to listen to this entire album since Josh Scott of JHS recommended it on his youtube channel, this song reminded me and I did listen to the album! Then I gave it a 4/5 on RYM. I think it's pretty good! I've really been meaning to get the bass back out too. This was an easy excuse. Sum 41 - Handle This, cool song. Had some issues with note detection I think for me. I've always liked these guys.

  6. Capo weeks are good for someone who has participated in the championship for a long time and by playing the same songs, might find out what progress he has made since then. For me, it's basically a normal week. So... This is the hardest beginner song I've ever seen here. More suitable for advanced or possible that I'm a noob It's hard to believe, but I played the song for the first time... I'm scared of Billy Talent because I always have problems with their style. I'll try later.

  7. Didn't have much time for the Championship this week as I've used more of my Rocksmith time working on my own customs (latest is Unknown Mortal Orchestra - So Good at Being in Trouble). I think this is more of a 4 than a 3 but it's classed correctly at intermediate: This bass chart is largely wrong but it doesn't sound terrible and it's reasonably fun to play IMO: Ah, Tool...all the fast alternating strings, for 10+ minutes. At the beginning I struggle, then I get the hang of it, then by the end I'm just ready to be done. And I don't care to replay for a higher score

  8. I thought I would share a project that @Rodman and I recently finished. I'm taking a recording and mixing class, and one of the assignments needed a one minute minimum recorded piece with three tracks, then we had to overdub two more tracks. Most of the class are music majors, so I assume it was no big deal for them, however I was at a loss for what to do. Rodman happened to message me, so I asked if he would record a few chord progressions that I could try to do something with. Man, he was all over it and within a few hours had a verse and chorus section recorded. I put some Band in

  9. @Mikson @AllPlayers - .... hardest beginner song ever.... well i tried to level up to int on Rob Zombie - Black Sunshine and made it to 98.05 in 85 tries 6 years ago if i remember correctly, that one may be even a bit harder... but the song this week being int/adv, absolutely agreed, ... howecer that was our rating then, actually it was a straight 3 - so it´s da capoed as Chuck Norris beginner challenge. And always remember... when Chuck Norris is doing push ups he actually pushes the world down.... and so shall you! Rock! Chuck Norris does not do phone calls, he screams!

  11. Interesting songs for this week. Thank you, Rodman! The beginners song sounds interesting... for everyone else but the bass. I'm not sure how I would define difficulty 1. You have to move your hands here, but it's not a very difficult song. The bars in the top are very misleading! In my first play through I got it. Next time it'll be Score Attack. When it comes to intermediate, there is a little challenge in the main riff, but when you get to it, that's there is. I think 3 is a bit low, thinking about the stamina required and the riff. But it's a great song. I'll be playi

  12. very little playing this week. i have injured my shoulder and don't want to stress it too much 1 or two passes only of the class songs... so no good score expected and this one is completely not in my reach to achieve sensible score....

  17. ...getting a miss on the first note (7 on the A string) of the main riff, every time. i'll give it a couple more tries to explicitly enunciate the notes for the detection's sake, til it gives me the >98% i feel like i'm playing it at already. sigh. yeah, idk wtf - felt like i legitimately and honestly missed maybe 2 or 3 notes on that runthrough. no more complaining. fun to play (...though not to listen to Dio sing over and over :| )

  21. @diceslinger After a couple of hours of messing around with the settings, this is what I got. Next I need to experiment with a green screen and filters. I'm using a Logitech C722 Pro camera, Rocksmith is in QHD resolution, camera capturing 720p 60fps. Need to disabled "audio exclusivity" in both Rocksmith and Windows sound devices for it to work. A 5 min recording is about 700 MB, and you need a relatively decent computer to do it. I'm doing it on an HP Zbook with a quad core i7, 32GB RAM and Quadro GPU, seems to be working ok but I saw occasional stutter in the video. Not sure why a

  24. Todays practice has bought fruit... og born fruit... or something. It was good. The beginner song is good warm-up. Getting better at moving my hand to the right positions. When it comes to the intermediate, I must admit, that all this tuning is annoying. And remember to retune after a while. If the bass has moved, it won't recognize some of the notes. Still: If anyone could make a version for E standard tuning I would be grateful. And then suddenly my pinky has to join the playing... damn. I have to look at that middle part some more. It's actually a quite good song. Thank

  27. @diceslinger dammit, that was hard i´m happy with the result, it´s guitar bass vocals - all done in one long take, for bass and vocals it´s the first takes that made it to the record, for guitar it´s 2nd take after 2 hours of practicing and a solo. I really must optimise my technique to start a RS song to be in sync with my click recording - really drove me nuts here, however - what do you think? and so waiting for your version. One thing is for sure - we must do more metal.

  28. Can't seem to get the intermediate quite right, but it goes on and on... like forever. I don't really care much for this song anymore. I got this accuracy, and I think it's okay: The advanced song is on the other hand much more fun (in my opinion). And most of it is in reach... I think.

  30. Anything by Green Day is becoming a must play for me. So much with such simplicity....amazes me every time. Who would think punk would be economical? This one is easy to jump into quickly...going SA early Not the hardest 7 we have played, but this is the one has level up written all over it.

  31. scores from testruns.... always hard to play an unknown song without checking the audio and sheet before easy ups, seems I played the wrong song.... hope the lead path for walking alone is ok beware of the arps here this is best to play with plec the only song I knew before aha, Rush goes Reggae and a really bad score, guess there are also unexpected arps and this one is just fast yes, very fast... you need to see the system behind the song, and certainly needs practice for a better score

  34. Class 1st... This was soo easy... I could do even better if I would have time to master switching between phrases... I don't want to be advanced to higher class though as I know this is exception as this lead was more like 3.5 rhythm for me As I said before... this one is more like lead for me... cannot make any better.. For this one I cannot do any better either... up to like 3/4 of the track I had like 99%... and then BOOM!!!! lucky hit and miss .. I have played it few more times after that, tried riff repeater, but 3rd try was the best no matter wh
