  1. Some more muffins. That's all the muffins for tonight.
  2. Proton gets it up and running really well, at least for Ubuntu. The link is here: https://www.protondb.com/app/221680 Some of the steps I had to do are: Install steam-installer from Ubuntu Software repository. Once steam-installer was installed and got Steam running and then installed Rocksmith2014, I had to go in to Steam, right click Rocksmith 2014, click on Compatibility and clicked "Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool." I then selected Proton 5.13-6. I was not able to get Rocksmith to run without doing this. Not sure if it's still required, but I had to
  3. I really enjoyed using the PRS SE Standard my oldest son lent me for this song. The action felt a little more comfortable. Anyway, some more of them there High Flying Birds. Think I'll work on Muffin Man. My score isn't competitive there yet. Leaving Zombie Barricade on rhythm alone. That's a little advanced for me at this point.
  4. Picked up a point. Think I can do a little better.
  5. Some Zombies been running around. Trying to decide between working on Muffin Man on bass or If I had a Gun on lead. Muffin Man is fun, but I'd like to advance beyond beginner on lead - and that might take a few weeks. Hmmm. New strategy is rhythm on the Gretsch Junior Jet strung with 10-46s and lead on the PRS SE strung with 9-42s. Let's see how that works.
  6. Had some fun. Had some challenges. Zombie Barricade Rhythm is not really 95%, that was in Riff Repeater at 70%. I'm only hitting 80% at full speed. Decided to park that one for a while and work on Frank Zappa's Muffin Man on Bass next.
  7. I hear you on that! I'm not quite there yet. It had to feel good to get that accomplished.
  8. A little better. 85% at 100% speed. Ignore that 94.5%.
  9. So "Too Bad" on rhythm is a bit beyond my abilities at the moment. The 94.5% is only at 70% speed. When viewing my screen capture - I'm really only hitting 76% at full speed. I'll work on it some more, but I'm at several hours at slower speeds, 11 play throughs on Learn a Song and about 7 attempts on Score Attack. But I bet with a little more work, I can get through it on score attack! We'll see by Friday night.
  10. This will take some work from me. That's okay.
  11. A little further along. @m_verd- I'm challenging you! Ummmmm, at the end of the week I'm about where you started. So maybe not. But! I'm challenging you anyway!
  12. Another try at U2. I hope that mole can move out of his hole and maybe move into a nice townhouse or condo or something. "There's a mouse, living in a house!" Kinda Dr. Suess'ish.
  13. You and me both. 50% for a long time, then 60%, then 70% and 80%. Then getting messy at 90% and completely falling apart at 100%.
  14. Dudes! And dudettes! And non-dudes! And however you define your duded-ness! Beach Boys - I Get Around - Bass. My fingers and my brain absolutely do not go that fast. I can hit 95% at 90% speed, but completely fall apart at 100% speed. Not sure about doing Foo Fighters bass, or just moving ahead with Beach Boys rhythm. Think I'll hit rhythm, then think about Foos. Edited: White Limo is cool! Definitely gonna do some Foo. I'm about Beach Boy'd out. What about Beach Men? Beach Women? Beach People?
  15. U2 - Elevation - Lead Got some work to do.
  16. A hard won point. I hooked up my Bigshot ABY pedal so I could hear myself through my amp. Seems to work a little better in letting me know where I am missing notes.
