    I did, but I always have a struggle getting the song down unless I transition to paper.  Rodman and I both tend to transition to tabs from one of the tab sites to memorize from.  Plus they are often a bit more stripped down.

    You are welcome to join us in out little challenge.  I know Rodman is going to ask me what song we are doing next, so I gotta figure one out.

    I'm not sure if my playing is at that level yet, but I'll be paying attention! I grabbed the Layla (unplugged) version and ran through rhythm twice and lead once to get a general idea. I have RocksmithToTabs working on PlayOnLinux, so ran my cdlc library through that and looked at the tabs using Tux Guitar. But I'm thinking I liked Justin Guitar training, he has three videos out on Layla unplugged and I have his training book and a book of songs. I'll see if Layla unplugged is included. I might be able to hang with a Justin course. I'll give this one a few more tries, but not submit a video. I'm no-where near close - but I'll pay attention to your next one.

    Is this the challenge where you and Rodman posted videos with family members singing? Those were really well done videos, showing a lot of time and effort.

    It's kinda sad that except me, only Diceslinger played this on Lead... Well, as part of a competition with myself, I tried a Score Attack.

    Well, tried it on lead several times. Still seeing a sea of orange and very little purple. An epic track, just a little advanced.  Time to take it in small sections.

    Edited: well, I ran it at 100% and a slower speed. I think I got every bend wrong. I'm going to claim that my guitar kept going out of tune when I used the tremelo bar and I really need a roller bridge. But honestly - for the last several bars of the song every note was right, so it isn't really dropping out of tune, isn't intonation, doesn't need a roller bridge to work with the Bigsby. But I'm saying it anyway. Darn hardware. Couldn't possibly be my playing. Those bends were right! (yeah, right)

    See everyone has 100% gary Mooreon bass.. noice

    @ someotherbruce  and @ ShankD  both also have the same streak  324 . What happens there ?? 

    Live streamed sudden death twitch-off at high noon. Time zone and player rotation to be decided by mods. It's always high-noon at cemetery hill, pardner!


    Edited to add: The Gary Moore song is for beginner bass. I'm competing in Intermediate bass - so in this case, my score would not count against yours. But I still think a live-streamed twitch-off doing a raid to the next channel would be funny as heck. Especially at high noon at Cemetery Hill!. I can't figure out rsplaylist and rocksniffer when doing Rocksmith on Linux - but just a straight stream would work.

    I'm glad we have a chance to play this epic composition in the championship. I really spent a lot of time creating this CDLC, so I hope everything is right.

    Last play - I did a little worse than the first or second try when I tested finished CDLC, but I didn't make a screenshot then.


    This was so much fun to play on bass. I didn't go for score yet, but had fun playing it. And really enjoyed that something so epic is in the range of a regular player. I only tried bass. I am sure lead is way beyond me for now - but bass is doable for mere mortals.

  5. @ kayteck - I think I found the issue on my Junior Jet. Radius Gauge shows about the same radius on the neck for the PRS and the Junior Jet. I did not dig out my vernier calipers to measure neck width. The PRS is running a 10" radius. Junior Jet measures about the same measuring near the nut. I need to remove the strings and measure from the fretboard to get really accurate results.

    Truss Rod gauge shows .006" at the 6th fret when a capo is holding down the string at the first fret and I press down on the 12th fret.  So that is right where it needs to be. Action at the 12th fret is way too high, though. Medium action for an electric guitar should be 0.065" on the low E string. I'm running between .010 and .011 - medium action for an acoustic!

    So - I need to lower the bridge until the low E string is around 0.06 to 0.065. If that causes buzzing, adjust the trussrod. Music Nomad measuring tools at Sweetwater were pretty inexpensive. I picked up a cleaning kit off StewMac - that was pricy! But Sweetwater can get you what you need to measure your action and make decisions from there.

    I kept my Jet in my Sunroom (where I have my PC for RS). Temperatures are not stable, and humidity is all over the place. That might have caused the higher action at the 12th fret. I don't keep the PRS in the Sunroom.

  6. Did a little better:spacer.png

    I was back down to 89/90/91 percent using my Junior Jet I. I put it on the stand and grabbed my oldest son's PRS. Score immediately hit 95.9%. If my son needs his guitar back, think I'll be looking for a replacement for my Junior Jet. The difference in playing is night and day. Although it could be in the setup.

    don't worry 😉 i gave up... however the reason is poor recognition... i don't know if this is because of small inaccuracies in my play or rocksmith fault. i just gave up as after 2 or 3 passes my hand was to painful... random misses just made me quit. i feel like playing whole song on 100% but rs2014 has different opinion 😉

    I had a lot of trouble with RS014 recognizing my high E string in D Standard tuning and in other custom tuning. I'm playing a Gretsch Junior Jet I and my son swapped in a Lollar P90 in place of it's mini-humbucker (it sounds really nice through the amp). My son left his PRS SE for me to mess with. I had no trouble at all with RS2014 recognizing notes. The neck on the PRS seems a little wider, flatter and very quick action. Strings are close to the fretboard all the way up the neck. I had my Gretsch set up - but the difference in necks and playability is huge! I'm thinking of using the Junior Jet for rhythm, E Standard and Drop D songs - and the PRS for lead. It really did make a difference. Although I have to get through this song and improve my score, and since it's rhythm I'm sticking with the Jet.

    What type guitar are you playing?

  8. @ kayteck - you and I are pretty close on CCR I Put a Spell on You! My middle son and grand-daughter are coming over after dinner, so I'm not sure. I might try a few more times after every one is off to bed. I'm not near competitive on beginner lead or intermediate bass - but I think you're ahead by a point or two on intermediate rhythm.

    ummmmmm, don't improve your score on CCR. Leave it where it is. That would be fine. 🙂


    And nobody else either, thank you. I'm not being sneaky or planning or anything like that.

    First time picking up the bass in a few months time.  I always forget how fun it is.


    I keep weighing between focusing on one instrument and one path so I can become more competent as a rhythm guitarist, or having fun and trying lead (where I am really bad) or bass (which is so much fun!). I know you are much more advanced than I am - but sometimes it is just plain fun to break out the bass.
