  1. Seems like I forgot to post my improvements on the beginners songs: And... But Sabaton is still a long way...
  2. Speaking of visualizing the Sabaton. Sometimes I use the RockSmithToTab program. It has helped a few times to get understand the music (as said, I'm rather good with notes): This didn't help me: I'll get back to listening, but it's so fast...
  3. Good answers. My wondering was a kind of asking, not to be taken as complaining. But I was frustrated, because the to first songs were so rather easy, and my own level so damn far from my level. My complaining of the slides has nothing to do with the organizers. It's just annoying, like when people complain about Drop D not being recognized (that I seldom have problems with). I think you are right, that the The Gold was 6/8, but it was not noted in 6/8, but rather 6/4, meaning the (small) lines were on the 1st, 3rd and 5th note and so on (the semiquavers/8th notes), while it shou
  4. Sometimes I wonder if the difficulty values are compared. In this week I must insist (for the bass path), that Tom Waits is by far the easiest (max level 2). And I have a feeling, that the original might have used some higher strings, but okay anyway. My first play through: I can get it right in a few days. The bonus beginner was also nice and only slightly more difficult than Tom... maybe 2.5. And then came Sabaton. I really like Sabaton, but this has not much to do with intermediate level. It's stupid fast. If I'm going to get a good score on this, it would be pure luck
  5. Had some small progresses... Intermediate is still rather annoying. I don't think the slides are difficult, but to get the computer to register them fairly is hopeless. It seems like the first slide should be after the attack, while the next to should be at the the same time as the attack... or something like that. That ruins the enjoyment of the song and gets to technical over the right rhythm and notes. It's a great song, but now just annoying trying to better my score. Had a small step yesterday: On the other hand, my Iron Maiden is getting much better, and I can now play most of
  6. Todays practice gave only a small step forward on one song, but since it was in my league I'll "report" it right in. Here a small step can make a difference in the competition.
  7. Had another go today. Much better. Especially the beginners song, though the rhythm is still a bit off, but did quite well. With the intermediate, I was a bit fast with the screen shot. I still misses a lot of notes due to sliding (and recognition), but I think I've begun to understand how it interpretates my playing... This is also okay, but I can do better. And then there is the fun Iron Maiden. This is quite okay, for the level above me. Almost as accurate as my intermediate song.
  8. The Iron Maiden is getting better. Still having trouble with chords and some (slow riffs), but the computer is pretty sure I'm capable of playing it way better than I am. But an accuracy of 96% is also quite okay (though some misses are never discovered). I'll soon try the Score Attack. As goes for my own league... we are not good friends. Contrary to Iron Maiden, the computer finds more flaws, than I'm playing. Especially in the beginning with all the sliding. Often when I slide, it does not recognize the note I'm sliding from. That is very annoying! And the streak never gets to bu
  9. I must say, that the beginners song are harder than usual. And I think the rhythm is wrong. It looks like it's 6/4 (with 8th-notes), but sounds like 4/4 (with a lot of triplets). That does not make it any easier! And I think the other strings should have been used quite a lot more! The intermediate is also a bit difficult, but rather fun as well... not my typical type of musik. But I forgot to take screen shot, though I'm not completely happy about it yet anyway. The advanced is nice, but who gave the bass chords?!? I like Iron Maiden (also the new stuff), so I'll practice this
  10. A small (a very small) improvement. No frog leaps here... though a very small leap is maybe exactly a frog leap. I'll have another go in a few minutes. Just wanted to be sure to get the best run in to the competition. Quite a bigger jump in the next class, but still quite some percents after others.
  11. Yay... made a good one on that intermediate... still fingering. Though that is what I do. Never picking anything (but my nose). And soon I'll have a go with the Karosene.. in tempo... so far I'm at 95% speed, and it's okay 20 or so misses.
  12. me too...# What's the point in having bonus paths if not? I mean, if no recognition or award of any kind, then no need for bonus paths. If I need other things to play just for the fun of it, I'll go nuts on the CustomsForge-page. So I'd say: reward points, mention names and so forth...
  13. The intermediate just needs a few justifications, then... But this is also quite okay. And I've begun practicing the next level as well, but that still requires some practicing.. to get it up to speed. Now it's "so so" on speed 85%...
  14. The beginner song was not so tough this week. First a go at "learning", and then this in second go: But I must admit, that I have a feeling, that "Drop D" is not the style of Ed Sheeran, and a few places I think he would have used a few more strings. But fun to play something not my style. Though I don't think I'm gonna play it anymore. The intermediate went quite good, but I forgot to take the screenshot. So that'll have to wait. The other two songs are completely out of my league! I think...
  15. Well, you forgot the bonus intermediate bass winner...
  16. Speaking of clarity about deadline. This week ended around half an hour before the magic 7pm CET. So no frog leaping this week, though I made a better version of Def Lepard than before, but not better than yours anyway.
  17. Stupid She Wolf... Actually the song gets better while playing and listening to it several times. At least I got past the 90%. But it's still hard and very difficult.
  18. Finally made a play through of the She Wolf, and damn she is a hard one! I think it's higher than "intermediate" level. But at least I get better at making octaves. And it seems I can't get the other ones any better. Deap Vally is a bit annoying, for I'm sure I play it better, but some notes seems to be missed, though I'm sure I play them...
  19. I must admit, that the She Wolf is really pulling teeth... Now I managed to play it at 95% speed with only around 50 misplaced notes. So tomorrow I'll begin playing it at tempo. Today (and with yesterday) I only managed a slight improvement on Def Leppard... and only on the Score and the Streak. But I'm stille happy about the Accuracy. It's okay.
  20. Had another go. The She Wolf is really hard (for me). Now I managed to get through at 80% speed... (with only around 100 missed notes). But Deap Vally was okay: And Def Leppard went also quite nicely. I can do it better... but it's only monday. And again I got lucky. I think, if I can get around 95% right, then it's not 8 in difficulty. It doesn't sound very good, but I have a feeling of the song...
  21. Had a minor try on this weeks songs. Forgot to make screenshot of Deap Vally, but had some fun with Def Leapard. And then came the She Wolf. WTF?! I'll have to practice those octaves all week. I had no flow, and played it at half tempo... and still with a lot of mistakes. But I got lucky with Daft Punk... but I think it was due to... well... luck.
  22. I must admit, I haven't heard about the deadline (but looking it up now, I see it clearly ), except when the next weeks competition has started. It's not intended to "leapfrog" anything.I was just lucky with my play through at this moment. Usually I wait for the next day with posting, due to the slowness of this webpage in the evening, but saturday I post it more or less "live", due to the deadline. Please notice, that I live in Europe, so 7pm CET is prime time for my playing. On the other hand I seldom start the new competition until Sunday evening.
  23. Also Joe Cocker got a bit better... still rather tough song.
  24. Uh... did my Nightwish even better. Hopefully before end of this weeks championship.
  25. I actually managed to improve all my play throughs today, though some not so much. I went away from the Simantl shimel schmie.. what-ever method with Joe Cocker. And with my lazy eyes, I couldn't beat the high score, but my accuracy was better. There are some rather easy places where my streak get broken, even though I'm playing it right. That's rather annoying. And it has happened multiple times now. And finally my Nightwish. I have some issues with my notes being heard. I think it's because the bass gets out of tune due to the strings setting set after tuning it do
