  4. @@justgimmethefunk Thanks, there are some really old videos, I don't really remember how I used to make them, but now I try to make them loud. I always play in standart tuning because I got used to only play this way. I just hated changing the tuning of my bass and when I started to learn some songs by myself I found a program called Aria Maestosa (which is pretty cool by the way) with which I would open mid files I found of the songs and when notes where below E1 it would show then as negative values. At first I found this really strange, as I was a total noob on music, but then I realised the songs were on tuning below the standart, so I would use the program to put the notes or parts one octave higher. At the time I saw some people saying that playing higher pitch would make the bass and the whole song sound weaker but in general I don't believe this is true, although some songs really need a lower touch (but then I think I would use an octaver or something like that lol).
  5. Hi. I have been making some bass cover videos on YouTube and putting tabs for the song. I play all songs in standart tuning and try to make the bassline close to the original but also interesting and easy to remember/play(since it's so hard and pointless to play all the notes exactly like the bassist did on the recording). Maybe I will do some lessons about bass and musical theory applied to it, if anybody is interested... So this is my YouTube channel: youtube.com/user/MysteriousBassBoy I would also recommend this site for learning bass, as it helped me a lot years ago, now it looks like it's has some paid lessons put I think there's still lots of good stuff for free there. It also has a cool bass tuner and other resources like that. This isn't for money or just personal promotion, I really want some positive criticism over my videos and I think that many people here could learn a little bit with me and teach me some stuff too. Hope this is helpful for somebody...
  6. To be quite honest I hate Rocksmith point of view. I can't play without using the invert string thing. It's not only against music theory because the higher notes in pitch come in the lower strings but it's against your own point of view of the instrument while you are playing (unless you are looking into a mirror while you play, which would also invert the hand you use, so that makes me think Rocksmith is even more awkward than I thought on the beginning).
  7. I have a friend that never liked tabs and just started learning guitar because of Rocksmith. I bet he wouldn't have bought too xD But Rocksmith system is not bad, is just a little strange on the beggining to those used to tabs.
  8. Guiagge, That is the simple way to do it. Many amps don't have a clean signal level output to tap into. Also you would have to play into your amplifier unmodified. When I connect my amp I use a direct box with gound lift and run into my ancient Digitec RP1 to go to my amplifier. The purpose of the direct box is to split the signal and not have to worry about a grounding loop and that horrid 60hz hum. Andrake Oh sorry, I forgot about that, I don't use effects at all since I'm a poor nigga, but it really can mess up the note recognition... Direct box is really a great tool for a bassist, can be useful in a handful of situations.
  9. This russian site has lots of MIDI, some hard to find in others.
  10. I don't see the need for a Y-cable at all. When I was doing that I would just put the (normal) cable on my amp and then put the Rocksmith cable on the line out of my amp. I don't know if every amp has this thing but to me it worked just fine (before I had a problem with my cable, i have to buy a new one but I'm too lazy lol).
  11. How do I do this? Maybe TuxGuitar could be my savior lol EDIT: also I tried importing a MIDI file in it and it put the bass in guitar tuning ¬¬ How do I change it to bass already "fixing" the notes (to decent frets)?
  12. I do this too.. I don't really like EOF, but at least I can do something in Guitar Pro. The only thing I wish I had was a program that could change all the notes of the same pitch to other string, so I could import it from Aria and generate a .gp5 file faster. Trust me, Aria is a top-notch program when it comes to making songs, but it can't export .gp5, just .mid, and this way you can't put any guitar techniques like slides on it, so you need something like TuxGuitar or Guitar Pro to finish the process which makes things slow for me... I'm actually thinking of making a tab editor program myself since I'm a programmer, if anybody has documentation of how the .xml files for Rocksmith work I would be glad to see.
  13. I agree I like the sideways Note track better and the number system. use promo code (4PACK30) that will take 30% off But yea too price unless you are a complete beginner. When I first saw the announcement for Rocksmith I was like crazy, but then they showed some screenshots and I was like, "WTF?", couldn't they do something closer to guitar tabs? There was already the Pro Guitar thing on Rock Band so I was think the way the put the thing together was kinda dumb, but after playing Rocksmith I see is not that bad.
  14. @@ice9 @@smirocsmo and others, do you think TuxGuitar is better than Guitar Pro? I use Guitar Pro mainly for changing the strings in which notes are played (which is a really slow process because it just can't select all the notes with same pitch) and for putting slides, hammer-ons/pull-offs, harmonics and vibrato. For main low level editing I use a program called Aria Maestosa which works with MIDI, but has a lot of good things for selection and makes it -really easy to add notes and make riffs/phrases (it has a tab view mode, since the main mode is a music score one). I think I will test it today and se if it solves my problems

    Yeah, but I swear I thought nobody would ever call this a band, I don't even had the time to check for it because I thought that if something ever had a name it wouldn't be EXACTLY like this lol If think I have a new name, I don't want people to come by mistake to my topics.
