  1. BEG LEAD 92% and 74 streak. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps7e99dff8.jpg BEG RHYTHM Not bad for first playthrough - easier than lead though.. :) 91% Acc with 53 streak.. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps48020866.jpg
  2. Assuming there is a truss rod, try tightening it (to increase bow in the neck). No more than about 1/8 turn per day - giving it time to settle before tightening again.
  3. Oh, so I want to buy a guitar with a tremolo bar and so went into the shop with a few in mind. PRS, ESP, Gretsch and Ibanez. Tried the Ibanez SR520 and didn't like it at all. Looked good but sat really poorly. Tried a Gretsch Electromatic and while I liked the look and sound, didn't like the size or the position (no playin high frets with this baby). ESP they didn't have any in stock but I want a guitar in something other than black (my current one is black). ;) PRS. Quite liked the Custom 24 SE but I am not sure about their own trem bar. They have Floyd models but are these any better? Not sure if the Tremonti are worth looking at (but I wanted a 24 fret).. So basically the PRS is the current leader but it still didn't grab me in store (though I liked it better than the S2, with its fat neck). How do the trem systems hold up on their own and vs FloydRose? Anything else I should consider? Mainly for Rock though possibly Blues. Thanks! :)
  4. Some chord work this week.. (It needs it) Will be spending some time in RR! :) BEG LEAD 88% with 46 streak.. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps19e5c76c.jpg
  5. Yep.. Might have a try at some Jonny Cash. Not bothered about learning the others this week.. Good luck all..
  6. You can turn off master mode in the options menu... Means it won't kick in automatically.
  7. Slight improvement.. No more time this week - stag do from tomorrow! :) *not mine.. LEAD INT 94.15% 95 Streak. Good luck hitting those notes, all.. :) http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps495c48dc.jpg
  8. All over the place in the middle of the song, but still came out better than last time - slightly.. Probably another % or two in me.. INT LEAD 93.77% and 113 streak.. Top tip.. If, like me, you put your PC in treehugger mode (balanced power plan) and forget to turn it back off again (Power CrAzY!), Rocksmith will be pretty damn shaky and unplayable.. So now you know.. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps820afffb.jpg
  9. Thinking about a guitar with trem too.. Current leader is a PRS, though not sure on exact type (se 245, tremonti or custom 24 maybe). The PRS custom trem is apparently pretty damn good, though doesn't have the full range that the FR has (or the limitations). Any experience with PRS??
  10. Bit of an improvement.. I like the song but don't think it'll hold my interest this week (and I actually have some spare time this week**).. LEAD INT 93.01% 67 streak.. Might give MC a try.. Will see. :) http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps168a4a7a.jpg ** as you can tell as I am changing the bloody font colours..
  11. This is the second Metric song we've had on the Championship - and I must say I am warming to them. Pretty good song; I listened to it on the bus on the way home from boozing last night (on Youtube).. ;) Anyway.. LEAD INT - 88% with a 61 streak. Not bad for starters! :) edit.. Oh and the lead singer has a great voice AND is Hot!! My missus will not be amused.... ;) http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zpsec6e0a72.jpg
  12. Found the same on EBay UK so ordered those as well (a bit cheaper too).. Should arrive soon.. :)
  13. Meh.. Frikking solo.. Gets me every time.. :) LEAD Int. 87% with 109 streak.. edit.. If I don't make over 90% in this song I will be royally pissed off.. ;) #H http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zpsf983e92d.jpg Oh and quick Ramones tribute.. Couple of notes not recognised but I'm not chasing them! :) 99.57% 340 Streak LEAD. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Capture_zps348967a4.jpg
  14. Up to 84.9 in Lead Intermediate. Best streak only 120 (not in this one though). Not final score (hopefully) so won't spam pictures! :) Trying to break the lead Solo down into smaller chunks is proving annoyingly difficult... The rest is fine.. Anyone got an Unforgiven Lead Solo playthrough please? :) Linky?
  15. It's arrived anyway. Will give it a go soon, when I find my masking tape. ;) I'll probably not bother sanding afterwards (I don't have the paper anyway). At least in this instance, as long as I dont see the wood beneath the laquer, I'll be happy enough for now. edit... That didn't last long. Just ordered some sandpaper. Might be a week or two to arrive, but I'm in no rush.. @@MVega , all I need to do now is invent a decent story that people would believe. For a man with a wife and kid, I probably can't mention groupies (unless I have a death wish).. ;) No it's not this size - unless you're viewing on a mobile.. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20140715_141502_zpsow0new2x.jpg
  16. No guitar until the last minute and a half of the beginner song.. Surprised as I couldn't remember any.. ;)
  17. Ordered some nitro repair paint from Amazon. Pretty sure its nitro. Thanks.
  18. Not bothered if I get it perfect. I just would like to have it not too noticeable. :) I've read about repairs with dyed super glue? A pal said he had a repair paint he uses. Will look into it.. Thanks
  19. Yessss.. Bus home after drunken night out. Unforgiven will be played to death this week. :)
  20. Dunno mate. Sod that. Speakers and LOUD.. :)
  21. http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o680/Hostilian/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20140712_094546_zpsyeow0yuv.jpg
  22. Dodgy link. New one below..
  23. OK, so my guitar flipped forward when setting up rocksmith and thudded against my desk. My ebony finish now has a small dint in it and you can see the wood behind. Bloody annoying. Anyone know if there's an easy way to repair it? Its a Gibson ebony SG std..
  24. Probably OK for rocksmith though.. Can't try it out, shop only has Line6 and another brand.. Might see what the Line6 is like though..
  25. Screw it. Gonna try to have a look at one tomorrow. :)
