  1. we have to wait until quantum physics dominate communication systems.

    But then we may also be able to teleport anywhere in the universe.

    I'm guessing we'll have to wait for version 2 before rocking out with our buddies in Alpha Centauri then?  :P

  2. What an idol! I really loved his improvisation "duels" like this one. What a classical ... Now all the Kings are sadly gone; Freddie, Alfred, BB... RIP.

    We've still got Chris Thomas... but he's got huge shoes to fill  :(


    I got to see Riley B. live three times. He was an absolute gentleman, even when he blew out one of his amps and it took ten minutes to get him a new one.

    Thrill is Gone is the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place. 

    Today sucks.

  3. Yep, It's another SUATMM!* pack. Mainly to encourage Ubi to put out mo' betta' blues. 

    And Lacey, you must've bought the Hendrix pack. (or was that in December?) I figure Jimi's got the nearest clothing sense to the Artist currently known as the Purple One than anybody.








  4. I'd see if Nacho charted his stuff using a humbucked guitar. I'm guessing you've got single coils in the Mexi-Strat. I've charted some stuff that had bad tones if I took the settings too extreme, then switched from my LP to my Strat. (or the other way around.) ((also, all the stuff others have mentioned already :))

  5. User definable chord progressions in session mode. ie DIY Jam tracks in your choice of key.


    A "Section Accelerator mode*" (*TM by moi*) in riff repeater, where you play through at your best speed the first time, then next time individual sections are played slightly faster than you can handle. ie: in a song with a dozen sections, it might go something like: 25% speed for the first 15s, 90% for the next 30s, 33% for the solo, 100% for the next part...  If the game "remembers" you could even tell it to skip the parts you have greater than 95% (or 65% or some other user defined %) mastered, and just mash together the sections you aren't good enough at.


    Having "bullet time" or a decelerator that could detect  when you've gone off the rails, and slows the song until you recover might be useful too.


    Specific to the Scale Racing Game, I'd like to see a car able to take "progressive damage" ie: a 3 lives, you're out setup instead of insta-death.

  6. Really nice, guys and gals.



    For the terminally lazy among us, and not that I'd ever think of downloading a song without giving thanks to the charter,  :o

    but, an ability to "Click thanks" the charter right in the search database would be an excellent way to give them the credit they deserve.


    Point 2, and I'm sure it's very likely user error on my end, but is there a way for me to globally set things so I get 'one' digest type email from CF a day, and not every single time somebody makes a post to any thread I'm following?

  7. A flowchart for the whole creation process would be awesome.

    I Know everybody has their own order to do things, but I'd love a succinct list (maybe based on http://rocksmithcustoms.wikispaces.com, or something, but able to sum things up at a glance)

    I'd just like a doc/pdf I could have open on screen as a reminder of what not to miss.



    1. rip .mp3

    2. find matching guitarpro file

    3. find cover art


    10. open eof -> import  audio -> import guitarpro file -> add leading silence -> sync beats, -> snap grid... (or, add silence, import guitarpro, snap grid, then sync, etc)

    11. ...


    My example in point "10" is just that if steps that must occur in a certain sequence could be highlighted, it would cut down on frustration and excess reworking of projects. For me at least.

    Also, having optional steps defined as optional would help. 


    I'd be willing to collaborate on something like this if there's any takers.

  8. Hi Chilpouni, can you elaborate on the difference of grid-snap choices? (the 1/16, 1/32, 1/64)

    is one more "granular", or are there different circumstances when you'd use one  or another?

    Thank you.

  9. To amend Dale's answer a bit, and give you credit for guessing right (about the second guitar part)


    edited to lead with a TL:DR, -> They indicate chord changes in a song.

    If you're bored, keep reading...

    A rhythm guitarist/bassist/ukulele/harmonica player/pianist could "fake" an arrangement using those chord changes.

    Some things to keep in mind, are that rhythm guitarists probably wouldn't just play a single strummed chord when they see D, or Dmin, or D7, etc (<- different chord shapes), they would usually play multiple strums with the beat of the song.

    Bass players might play the single notes indicated, might play arpeggios using that note as a "base" note ie, they'd play something like D - then F# - then A - then the F# - D or whatever sounds most rhythmic. (or they could play power chords or double stops ie: D on the A string and D on the G string at the same time, etc)

    With the ukulele, and many other instruments, you can play a chord-melody arrangement. Often that means a chorded strum on the change, followed by playing some cool sounding individual notes from the melody of the song. (like in combo mode from RS1) (Also, ukulele players often travel in large packs, so trying to get everyone to "meet up" at chord changes is a good way to keep in time if you don't have drums or bass to help with that.

    Then you get those @!#$!%ers on piano who can play chords with the left hand while simultaneously playing melody with the right... (yes, I'm jealous)

  10. Hi Chlipouni, 

    I've searched here and on your wordpress site, and haven't found if there's an easy way to only apply DD to certain tracks. IE, I'm working on a song with a complex lead, and  a straightforward bassline. I'd like to package the song with DD on lead, and no-DD on bass, because strangely enough, the bass is genuinely easier without the DD.

    (and thanks for all you've already done!)

  11. Well, I still want to know if you've looked in the your Rocksmith DLC folder -- just to confirm you don't actually have the Cherub song. Seems strange you wouldn't. Unless they stopped giving this away? I didn't buy RS2014 right away when it came out, and it came with my copy.


    It should be available as a purchase through Steam if nothing else. You'll save yourself a lot of trouble just buying it.

    Cherub Rock was free for people who pre-purchased RS2. I didn't get it until after release, so had to buy Cherub Rock.

    I also strongly agree with your last point. 

  12. 2 double shots of medium roast home-brewed espresso in the AM. usually black.

    If we've gotten darker roast  to suit my wife's taste (she uses cream) I might add 1/4tsp or so of sugar.


    re the Starbucks thing, I think it would take about 3 Tablespoons to "fix" it.

    re the Black coffee thing while out, yes, it is astounding the number of servers who can't understand what you're asking for.

    re the Blues, they may be the only thing better than a decent cup of (Irish) coffee. (Scotch/Whiskey is pretty fine too!) :D
