  2. @"That is your choice Collision i said nothing which was meant to offend you or as a personal attack" - so why did you mention me twice in your post if it was not aimed at me?I thought you wanted us to highlight any issues with the songs when the list was made and the songs would be finalized later. Well I offered you my issues and you decided they are not important enough to consider. Maybe you were pissed off yesterday because the song that you chose was not suitable for the competition. I thought that as a moderator of the competition you would check each song before submitting them!And you ask why I do not submit to the song selection list. Do you really think a beginner should be selecting songs? .I think you are joking saying you want me to add songs to the list.@ "Who wants to find a possibility, who does not want to find reasons" I have no idea what you are saying :)
  3. I make a complaint about beginner songs being in not regular tunings or songs being 18 minutes long with no riff repeater. I will no longer participate if you think I am only here to complain. I will also not donate to this site anymore because of you. I see your post as a personal attack at me and that is offensive, I think you forgot what it is like to be a beginner.
  4. I don't think CustomsForge has been running for 31 weeks, but anyway it is disappointing that you allow the songs we found too uninteresting or got bored of playing to be part of the customsforge championship is a bit disappointing. We could have joined the Ubisoft forums to play these songs.
  5. It is a bit disappointing to me that on a website called CustomsForge two of the songs are songs already included in the game. People find this website because they want something other than the songs that are included with the game. Maybe they have already played the hell out of the included songs or they have no interest with them, to include them in the championship is a mistake in my opinion. Personally I have no interest in learning My Generation or I would have learned it before now. I think you are sending a message that the customs here are not good enough for the championship.
  6. @@ScottLP I had the same problem when I played with 9-42 strings, any tuning below Eb I could not get note recognition. I changed to 11-48 this week and the game has been fine at detecting notes in this tuning.
  7. I guess 98% is my limit this week, I can even make 98% in master difficulty but 99% just too much for me! http://s22.postimg.org/mie30v3s1/rocksmith1.jpg
  8. Another small improvement...maybe make 99% before the weekend if I stop making simple mistakes on power chords :) http://s28.postimg.org/jxbg1mpdp/rocksmith.jpg
  9. Tried score attack for a change today, small improvement. Thanks for the update @@Shiroo http://s16.postimg.org/636lybev9/rocksmith.jpg
  10. @ Thanks for the encouragement. It's true that I tend to play through a song once and decide if its to hard for me or not. My biggest gripe is that a lot of the time beginners songs are not in standard E tuning. This week for example I have to tune to Eb drop Db to participate and for lessons or arcade I need to be tuned to E. If I get maybe 1 or 2 hours to practice and I do not want to waste 10 minutes every time retuning for lessons and then another 10 minutes tuning for song. I tend to leave my guitar tuned for the song, Maybe it would be an idea to make beginner songs only E standard, or increase the beginner song from 1 week to 2 weeks?
  11. Tried again and actually made an improvement! Still can't do the ending though, 80% speed is ok 90% is hard and 100% my fingers and brain just give up lol. http://s16.postimg.org/vfdt5kshh/rocksmith.jpg @@Shiroo maybe the wrong place to ask this, but as you are the creator of this cdlc is it possible to add a few seconds silence at the start? I have to start playing almost immediately when I click to play, no time to prepare :)
  12. Well that's me for this week, 2 hours playing this song and I go down not up... I have no idea what it is asking me to do even at 50%. Think I should stop playing this championship, thought it would be motivating not demoralizing. http://s1.postimg.org/no5v8pxrj/rocksmith.jpg
  13. Don't know how much I can improve on this, I know I'm going to struggle with the last part. Maybe I should create another account and enter again just so I don't finish bottom as usual :) http://s28.postimg.org/5ih554xxp/rocksmith.jpg
  14. Changed strings to 11-48 gauge and still I couldn't improve on Ace of Spades, small improvement on Paradise Lost http://s9.postimg.org/ta03i7bcf/rocksmith.jpg I guess that old saying is correct....A poor workman blames his tools!
  15. Small improvement on Ace of Spades rhythm....at least I am not going backwards like usual :) http://s28.postimg.org/4n2fqq4j1/rocksmith.jpg
  16. I do have 9-42 and I dont have this problem. The key is to tune after each play of the song and use calibrate as much as possible. But my strings are pretty old too, that might be the key also :P Thanks for that tip @Shiroo I went into tuner now and my E sting is -21 after only 2 plays and A was -15. Could be why I progress so slow :)
  17. @ I have 9-42 strings now, it is all I have :) If I buy 10-52 it is simply change strings? I do not have to adjust truss rod or bridge etc? Thanks for advice :)
  18. @ I had a couple of goes at beginner song, and as usual for me in this tuning I get random misses. I think my strings are too thin for this tuning that is why I don't play songs in D. I think I'm going to stay with Ace of Spades in rhythm section this week . http://s3.postimg.org/5wbuobcw3/rocksmith.jpg
  19. @@Hostilian I haven't managed to get over 65% in lead yet, I think rhythm is my limit! But if these guys can get their fingers around it I'm sure there is hope for me ;) http://youtu.be/199R-bmZcCs
  20. Couldn't resist having a go at Ace of Spades, thank God it has a rhythm section as the lead is way way too hard and fast for me! http://s17.postimg.org/m33bex3kv/rocksmith.jpg
  21. Ace Of Spades is a great song, so good I even made a CDLC of it for the old site, but I know it is way too fast for me to play so I'm going to stick to spice girls this week :)
  22. Beginners song is in D standard tuning so I wont be playing that and the intermediate song is an 18 minute song with no sections in riff repeater, could be time consuming to learn lol. Think I'll learn Wannabe by the Spice girls this week :)
  23. First try tonight, think I missed 1 or 2 notes. Doubt I'll bother playing this song again as I don't get anything from it, will look for something else to play this week. http://s27.postimg.org/r8h2805k3/rocksmith.jpg
  24. These beginner songs seem to go from one extreme to the other for me, last week I had no chance with beginner song this week 97% after 3 plays without using RR! http://s8.postimg.org/6nrxfw5f9/rocksmith.jpg
  25. @@Hostilian @ Thanks guys for the encouragement but I'm just taking a break before I turn this guitar into firewood :)@@diddie17 I'm not hugely competitive either as you can see from my previous weeks scores and like you, I see the improvements that others are making which makes me feel like I'm standing still or going backwards! I'm just not enjoying playing anymore.The issues I have with this kind of song is that I simply cannot keep up! For example on this song I can play the first section in RR perfectly at 70% usually 80% too but any faster and I just get into a mess. I have the same problem with any song with a solo like this!I'm currently at 54% for this song, no need for a screenshot :)
