  1. 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?
  2. @ 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You guys are beating me! I should have kept my mouth shut. Nah - I just saw updates on week 402 and thought I'd let you guys know. Just means I have to practice harder.
  5. This is way faster than my fingers go! I need to figure this out.
  6. I know my Kings of Leon score is a little lower - but last posted was in Learn a Song and this is in Score Attack. I'm kinda happy to make it through SA, even if I dropped a point.
  7. Messing around on beginner and intermediate: My beginning score on Joyride Lead is a bit embarasing to post. I'll leave that out until I can practice it a bit more. But I think I'll focus on the songs I'm competing in first.
  8. My Chemical Romance - Summertime - Lead - 88% That 94% is slowed down. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - Summertime Blues - lead - 81%. Got some work to do!
  9. This was fun. It was a real stretch for me, and I am no where near accurate - but it was fun anyway. The 92% was slowed down in Riff Repeater. It's only 78% at full speed.
  10. Giving it a go. For the life of me, couldn't get through "Should've Come Over" on Score Attack. Got on 89% in Learn a Song at full speed (the 96% was in Riff Repeater at slower speed).
  11. This is the first time I had an absolute need to turn the volume up on my amplifier. Teddy Picker on Bass is just pure fun!
  12. Some more muffins. That's all the muffins for tonight.
  13. 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 try out different Proton versions. Then just go to the protondb link above for edits. The first steps noted below are from the protondb link: Install winetricks, then from terminal: WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/221680/pfx winetricks sound=alsa To select Rocksmith Real Tone Cable as input device WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/221680/pfx winecfg If you have to, disable pulseaudio systemctl --user stop pulseaudio.socket systemctl --user stop pulseaudio.service I did not have to disable pulseaudio. You probably won't need to. If you do stop it, you'll need to restart it to get sound working again outside of the game. Again - I didn't have to mess with it. The below is extra, and only if you want to get CFSM running under Linux: I installed PlayonLinux from Ubuntu software store. I used it to install CFSM Manager for Windows. Used PlayOnLinux to install CFSM Manager for Windows Used PlayOnLinux to install the app in a new virtual drive. Used PlayOnLinux to install dotnet40 Created a symbolic link. Rocksmith is in a hidden directory, under .steam, and Wine can't see hidden (.) files The symbolic link calls /home/bruce/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Rocksmith2014 Rocksmith (so when I look at my directory structure, I have a directory called Rocksmith just under my home directory) Since CFSM Song Manager comes with an installer, and PlayOnLinux did a good job installing it, I used PlayOnLinux to open the directory for CFSM virtual drive and installed RocksmithToTab there. RocksmithToTab Located directory CFSM was installed in (CFSongManager). Created Rocksmith to Tab V1.1 directory Copied RocksmithToTab zip file over and unzipped it Opened up PLayOnLinux Selected CFSM, then selected "Open the Directory" Went to RocksmithToTab directory and ran the rocksmithtotab GUI. Rocksmith directory - I previously made a symlink to get CFSM working: Z:\home\bruce\Rocksmith Saved tabs to: c:\users\bruce\My Documents\RocksmithTabs used .gp5 format Then I installed tuxguitar. Tuxguitar reads the rocksmithtotab files with no problems. Located Rocksmith tabs directory, to tell TuxGuitar where to find the files: \home\bruce\.PlayOnLinux\wineprefix\CFSM\drive_c\users\bruce\My Documents\RocksmithTabs I've printed out some tabs for simple songs and have tried going into Score Attack on Master Mode and trying to play just using tabs. It's kind of hard, but it's been a very long time since I played just using tabs. Editor On Fire Copied down Editor On File full program Extracted. Copied to CFSongManager virtual drive. This opens up. For the life of me, I can't get DLCBuilder running under PlayOnLinux. If I go for an updated laptop, I'll probably switch to Windows as I'd like to create some The Cramps cdlc. I like early rock, rockabilly, psychobilly, surf and garage music - and lately have been liking The Cramps. I'm not finding a lot of early roots type music.
  14. 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.
  15. Picked up a point. Think I can do a little better.
  16. 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.
