  1. gonna have to step aside from guitar for a bit. Started physio again for fret hand, but the dog just took a chunck outof the "webbing" between thumb and forefinger on my strumming hand :S
  2. I'm sure that made a great gift :D Have a google for patches, or make your own, again google whatever artist to get an idea of what they are using. I use this site to get some guitar patches. Like any place on the internet some will be terrible and have a great rating because someone likes the song and vice versa.
  3. First run on Adv Bass, 97%, 656 streak http://i59.tinypic.com/2j0gwoo.jpg
  4. Just took delivery of my new shiny amp :D Peavey vypyr VIP 3 First impressions, very nice, got it for an absolute steal £130 second hand, not a mark on it, some dust but that's it. Firmware needed updated and got a quick look at the editing process for PC, looks very nice... complicated but heh :D The pre-sets are a bit, hmm good but maybe over the top on some effects, lots of reverb and wah when it could have been a bit more subtle, nothing that can't be changed. The amp itself seems very good, better than I expected, it can handle electric, bass and acoustic guitars as well as violins banjos etc. lol The power sponge really works, you can attenuate it down to 1 watt and throw a tube screamer on it, sounds really good at low volumes. It doesn't weigh to much (I needed the wife to bring it upstairs) so it's easily transportable. Overall very happy with it :D http://www.hangszeraruhaz.hu/termekek/peavey-vip3.jpg
  5. Man oh man, everything seems to conspire to stop me playing, after handing in my chemistry assignment I thought great can really get some good play time in. Lasted 2 days and then I tweaked my back, so I'm now back on my feet and able to sit for 15 mins now. Anyway first runs on adv bass and int lead Bass 91% 124 streak http://i60.tinypic.com/zt7rme.jpg and int lead 78% 80 streak http://i60.tinypic.com/mcw7kj.jpg
  6. ignore the above :P Took it too SA, INT Bass, 99.75%, 699 streak :D http://i60.tinypic.com/msert0.jpg
  7. Finally, chemistry assessment handed in and my head is now returning to a "normal" state :) Had to check was playing the correct song lol Bass INT, 99% 372 streak, missed 2 notes near the start, thank god I didn't hit restart lol. http://i60.tinypic.com/2cgho9i.jpg
  8. Note recognition for me is slightly, well lots off. I saw a few misses and lates flashing when I knew I was hitting them, so decided not to play some notes, maybe 1 out of 4 notes not played (+ more?) in some sections and it gave me them lol. Anyway updated Bass int, 97% acc, 191 streak http://i58.tinypic.com/14klliu.jpg I can't get anywhere with this on lead and don't have enough time to devote to it atm, I will in all honesty probably need (or be) levelled down for lead path.
  9. Int Bass 93 %, 127 streak http://i61.tinypic.com/11jsp3b.jpg
  10. Finally got around to buying Kansas, Carry on my wayward son :D There's probably a lot more that I want, but I daren't ask the wife for more cash atm
  11. I'd say if money is a problem, get the cheapest multi effect pedal you can from ebay or a pawn shop.. I mean the absolute cheapest soab you can find. That will likely provide you with some amp sims, not a lot but enough to play about with and a few effects that are just about ok. Then you get time probably 6 months to a year to save up a little bit, if you can put away 15 dollar / euro / pound a month you should just about have enough for a very decent multi effect to replace the crap one something like Zoom B2.1U or Zoom B3 would be my preference. Then a better Amp, then guitar and finally start buying specific pedals :) Ofc it never works out like that for me :)
  12. Int lead is a disaster 71%, 55 streak sounds like 2 cats fighting in a sack :P http://i61.tinypic.com/1ragj5.jpg
  13. Slightly better run on Int bass, 97% acc, 392 streak Will put a lot more into this on bass side, quite like the song :) Not just at the minute tho... another battery bites the dust lol, my multi effects pedal batteries are all on charge too so feeling a little lost atm :P http://i60.tinypic.com/f39v69.jpg
  14. I havent used this myself yet, simply removed all the cdlc that I wont be playing for a while into a different folder and kept my favourites where they should be (in the normal place). But anyway... Custom Game Toolkit - Game Saves Gigbox and Tutorial 6 I think will help you out. :)
  15. Int Bass 95% acc, 166 streak http://i60.tinypic.com/33wm8n7.jpg For lead I am getting nowhere fast I may be able to post a "qualifying" score if I can get enough time to play it more, but I may just throw myself into some blues or mess with tones instead :P
  16. Oh, it was one of those things where the jewels (seemingly) randomly shift off of the beat markers? I've definitely had that happen to me a few times when making customs. Have to admit I have no idea why that happens unless I accidentally dragged them. That happens to me about 90% of the time when I open EoF, it's a real pita :)
  17. Yes you can use cdlc with RS2014 no matter where you get it from. Not related to the initial question, but the disc from RS 1 was just an executable with a pointer to DL from steam anyway, so it's probably the same for RS 2014
  18. Thanks! I was really hoping to hear from some people that are actually using RS2014 and everything under windows10. Same :D I've got a lot of stuff I Need to work straight away. There will inevitably be the odd hiccup but hopefully nothing major.
  19. Int Bass, 99%, 179 streak I think I could definitely make some more improvement, however it's starting to hurt my hand after 3 plays so I'll call this my last for this weeks entries :) http://i58.tinypic.com/1z3z86w.jpg
  20. "I have read about people using 0000 steel wool, but I once received advice from a guitar technician to never use steel wool on a guitar..." That's only to do with particles being attracted to the pick-ups, be careful, always use a vacuum beside where you have the wool or remove the pick-ups before doing it, and clean thoroughly afterwards. Be careful and you could use an angle grinder, not that I'd recommend that :P In regards to the gloss effect, I wouldn't bother doing anything other than a normal clean. It will always come back if you play that guitar regularly, your clothes are polishing it with every movement and any sweat etc is getting polished into it. If you decide to take steel wool to it, you will eventually just be looking at bits of bare wood. Wear it as a badge of honor says I :)
  21. Int Lead 87%, 94 streak http://i57.tinypic.com/2q2fs51.jpg Just to keep my place on die hard men, Not getting much in the way of free time to play this week, or next week probably :( Great song btw :)
  22. I've got problems with my fret hand, so it's gonna be different. It's been about a year now since the pain started, maybe a little more. I have had physio, not played guitar for 6 months and all sorts of exercise and muscle building routines. It's all been a bunch of crap to this point. Recently a GP took a look at a previous x-ray and gave an immediate and confident diagnosis, so hopefully I will get it sorted out now. The only thing I can say is make sure your doctor is good and if you feel you are getting nowhere get a second or even a third opinion.
  23. Windows 10 is coming on 29 July 2015.
  24. So I have win 10 reserved and just now noticed an icon (near the clock) on the toolbar. It doesn't appear to be active for download just yet. Has anyone else got this or indeed used Win 10 beta? Any trouble with any apps installed, RS or other non MS apps?
  25. Just an update, Went to the docs today to asses if I was suitable for an injection, she took 1 look at my xray and said it's "De Quervain's tenosynovitis" and refererred me back to physio department as it wasn't her line of work. Getting a little frustrated as it was the physios who had the xray done and said there is nothing there. At least the doc was absolutely certain so there is at least a (hopefully) correct diagnosis now :)
