    Started to play the guitar 'properly' in Sept 2013.
    Always wanted to but I guess I never had the time or space. Big into Rock/Metal - From AC/DC to ZZ Top.

    I suppose this is music/rocksmith related, so that'll do! :)
  • Guitar
    Gibson SG standard (ebony), Fender Stratocaster (mim), Fender T-Bucket 100CE electro-acoustic

  1. Basically, uploaded a CDLC in error after Browser froze.. I'd like to delete it.. Can someone advise how - or delete it for me please? It's called "Delete this please" Cheers #H
  2. Hi there Anyone seen it when you have the coloured notes (chords) corrupted in game. You see a vertical, flickering multicoloured 'bar' where the notes should be.. Maybe 10cm long.. An earlier version of this particular custom I did seemed to create just fine.. New ones today (after about a month and a half break) produce this problem.. Anyone?
  3. Not a difficult song to riff repeat (lots of repetition), but I've added a couple of sections in (to split it up a wee bit). Now completed and uploaded for any feedback.. :) FYI. Find me - Kings of Leon.. Thanks, #H
  4. Ok, I've actually got a working first CDLC in progress. I actually have tried to do this before but I think I might have tried to do a song that was a bit complicated for my first (it was a live version and the tabs were rubbish).. Anyway, I submitted a song request for it today, then thought.. Actually I'll just give it a go myself (so submitted a work in progress too, lol).. I now have a beta with Lead, Rhythm and Vocals all synced (It's much, much less complex. So much easier when the tab is nearly correct).. I have a few queries about sections though.. I have split it into the various sections - intro, verses, choruses, outro - and the sections are showing in the riff repeater - so that's all good.. Questions are.. a.) Is there a guideline for how best to further subdivide your sections to practice in riff repeater - or just split them into manageable pieces as you see fit? b.) Do you just add extra 'verses' so as to subdivide (for example, the verse) into different sections? c.) Any guidelines for submission or do I just follow the form? Many thanks, #H
  5. Can I suggest a piece of paper for something so basic (it's what I used).. ;) As I was simply trying to fit as many changes as I could into a minute, I thought Rocksmith would be far too restrictive and simply would have got in the way of me doing your changes (I was thinking about it, briefly, back for Rocksmith 1).. Scales are maybe a different matter - but these are built into the games in Rocksmith arcade (they're very useful actually). Horses for courses and all that, but is this not a bit overkill for just 1 minute changes? IMHO, you'll learn your basic chords better by NOT using Rocksmith.. :) #H
  6. Ground hum? Get a ground loop isolator then (see other posts about it on these forums).. About a fiver from ebay.. I have 2 of them. Superb - cuts out all background hum! :) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-3-5mm-Jack-Ground-Loop-Isolator-Audio-Noise-Filter-Unwanted-Hum-Inductor-/232000190447?hash=item360449f7ef:g:~8IAAOSw-KFXeA-D Cheers, #H
  7. If your current guitar is set up well, then it's probably fine for Rocksmith use. However, a new guitar is a great motivator. I say, if you've got the cash, go for it! :) I found Les Pauls very heavy and went for an SG.. Whatever you choose, try it out in store first! Second thing I'd say is that once you've got a nice guitar...... you're going to want another. Bear that in mind when choosing what you want! :)
  8. I dont think there's much wrong with the current game - and I am NOT paying for my customs again (because 'insert crappy developer excuse here' blah blah compatibility etc).. Maybe a few fixes and improvements to the Riff Repeater and easier selection of parts of songs - within the game - to RiffRepeat. Surely much better than the fixed sections we have at present. A small upgrade pack (for a small charge) with some updates, community feedback suggested improvements and fixes - maybe a few free songs - would keep most people happy, I'd say.. For now.. :)
  9. Odd.. Was fine the other day.. For some reason, I'm now finding that if you hold the USB cable at the back of the HD500 and move it gently, the hiss comes back. I think, despite snipping the cable, the problem is when the outside of the USB plug touches the chrome around the USB plug on the HD500. A bit of insulating tape (or sellotape) around the outside of the USB plug (to stop it contacting) and noise is gone.. Of course, you can still download and upload your presets. Wish I had noticed this before! My bad! :) edit.. When I say it's gone, I mean TOTALLY gone.. It's damn near perfect! :D
  10. I've always had an issue when connected to my HD500x from my laptop (via USB) when it's plugged into my amp.. Basically, there's a lot of background noise. Just thought I'd share a simple fix.. Works for me anyway.. Get an old USB cable and strip away about 1/2 inch of cable in the middle of the cable. carefully loosen the shielding and see if you can find a black cable. Snip the black cable and using electrical insulation tape, wrap it back up again - ensuring the black cable ends are insulated from each other and from the shielding. Optional - Get a small piece of tinfoil (2cm * 4cm approx) and wrap around the new insulated cable/shielding, then wrap around the tinfoil with insulating tape.. Job done.. Much reduced 'noise' if you've done it right. As you're chopping the ground cable there may be other issues with data rates etc (who cares), though I wouldn't use this modified cable for anything other than your HD500... Of course I hold no responsibility to damage to anything. Do so at your own risk.. Works for me though.. :)
  11. I've actually timed it and the difference between 95% and 100% (in riff repeater) is actually a 10% difference in speed, err, in realtime. Not sure what the 'real' difference is between 90 and 95% but it's certainly not linear.. H
  12. @mmoreda No problem. See new link below the main image.. Cheers, H
  13. If it's not running smoothly. Best things you can do is reduce the resolution (1280x720, I think, on my laptop) AND turn off the crowd. There are also a number of other detail settings you can turn off to improve performance. My desktop runs it at Full HD without a problem (it's powerful enough), though I still turn off the crowd. Not all issues with stuttering are due to your computer. I have issues sometimes with individual songs jumping and stuttering (customs) no matter how powerful a machine I play it on.. Lastly, there are some good configuration guides for optimising your lag for Rocksmith, check out Google. Some are on Rocksmith official forums.
  14. Thanks for this.. Will download at some point soon! :) Unless anyone can zip it and share? ;)
  15. ACDC and Foo Fighters - This summer (two concerts in a week)! :)
