    Heya ! So i tried The Intermediate song for this week. And im not sure if Im going to participate this week more. The song is way too hard for me. I only got this score, because i was randomly taping the frets and rocksmith recognised some of them. I feel theres a huge gap between Intermediate and Begginer and I noticed this earlier when I tried other intermediate songs. Theres no way I could learn the solo and I would have to spend tons and tons of time to improve my other parts. I feel the difficulty should be lowered OR the should be another class added -> between intermediate and master, and lower intermediate. It doesnt feel good when I get this score from only smashing my guitar around. And when I participate I want to learn the whole song and be able to play it. Not only bits and pieces. Dont take me wrong, Im not complaining, I appreciate all your hard work.  Im just pointing out things that could be improved. 

     

    I dunno.  Your first run was an 81%.  If you start off 90% or higher, are you really going to LEARN anything from the song?  Many of these songs we start off with a first attempt in the 60s and work our way up into the 90s.  It's more gratifying to see progress than to start at the max level.  If I start at the max level, the song is purely for fun rather than gaining anything from playing it.

     

     

    Opps didn't want the whole quote but any way,

    My thought about learning something from a thing you can beat easily: You only stop learning when you're dead. If you think that you wont gain anything, than you are basically closed minded. Even something as simple as muscle memory of a specific scale. ( I do own the Bass Grimoire  that has literately thousands of scales). 

    That and the whole purpose of this championship IS to have fun.

    I did start to play bass emulated, and your right. Terrible sound and defiantly not the same. But I did enjoy it and went out and bought a (relatively cheap) starter bass. After 30+ years plunking around on a guitar I finally figured out that all this time I should of been playing bass! I have more time in the past year of playing bass than all the years I spent playing guitar. (First one ever was acoustic in 1977)

    Ok, heres the deal. I have chosen my classes for a couple reasons;

     

    1) I am a bass player at heart and an average guitar player (I do suck at solo's).

    2) Every week I would like to make an official entry for all three songs. But as I can't do them all on bass, I figure that this way makes the most sense to me. (I know I can enter them all on bass, but they don't count).

    3) I have only started to pick up my guitar again after over a year because of this championship.

     

    That being said, if I am forced into another class for a particular arrangement (LRB) I will no longer participate in that arrangement. I'm not mad, but that is the way it's going to be for me. :D

  5. Here's my entry for intermediate class. Actually first time through and RR was only used to max the difficulty. (Failed the song twice in score attack)

    And I kinda feel like I was cheating. I learned this song back in the mid 80's on an acoustic guitar!

    Poor book has been around the world (literally) but I still have it!
