  1. You might want to just make one at the higher end of the speed (200bmp?) since all good speed building exercises have one by first learning the movements really slow and gradually speed up only once you can play it perfectly at the current speed.
  2. Each difficulty is a pattern, they are listed in order. You go into RR and set each section (worth 2 beats) to the patterns you want to practice, and set RR to not level up because that would change the patterns on you - unless you want that. I found the progressively harder patterns lots of fun while testing the package, specially if they start off at different levels.

Rhythm: Open Chords (C, Am, G, F) 1st position.Lead: Power Chords (C5, A5, G5, F5) all over the low-E string for a heavier sounds.Bass: Single notes over the low 3 strings 1st position. The track is 12 bars each its own 2 independent section without counting the lead-in silence and the out. Well 12 in 4/4 time, you can also think of them as 24 in 2/4... I had to do it this way or there would be over 256 levels of difficulty. Each section has 20 difficulties each with a completely different rhythm pattern: 1 & 2 &0:1: *2: *3: *4: *5: * *6: * *7: * *8: * *9: * *10: * *11: * * *12: * * *13: * * *14: * * *15: * * * *16: * * * 1/617: *** 1/1218: *** 1/1219: *** *** 1/12That should be enough to let you practice almost any rhythm. Using this page as reference we some example strums patterns using 4 sections: #1 15 15 15 15#2 6 6 6 13#3 6 13 6 13#4 13 13 13 13#5 6 14 13 14#6 1 7 11 13#7 13 13 13 13 with only the bass strings on the 1st beat of each#8 6 15 6 15 only bass strings on the 1st beat of the 6s#9 6 13 6 13 only bass strings on both beats of the 6sBasically it is mix and match to form the patterns you want.Needless to say you want Riff Repeater to NOT level your sections up automatically if you want specific patterns, BUT it is fun to get constantly changing patterns too so that's another way to play. You can totally cheat and just play really fast, but you are only cheating yourself. Downloads link: PC (Tested) Mac Xbox 360 PS3 Is it just me or does 13 get around?
  4. ARTIST...................: YouALBUM....................: NoneTITLE....................: 12 Bar Blues (Practice)VERSION..................: 1.0INSTRUMENT(S)............: Rhythm, BassTUNING...................: E StandardCUSTOM TONE..............: Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion tonesDYNAMIC DIFFICULTY.......: Kind of, use them to pick the key.DIFFICULTY LEVELS........: 3 (C, E, G)RIFF REPEATER............: YesSCROLL SPEED.............: 2.0PACKAGE ID...............: 248750 (Cherub)PLATFORMS................: PC, Max, Xbox360, PS3First of all many thanks to ja37 for solving my Riff Repeater problem. This is a practice track for the 12 Bar Blues and it's variations as described in it's Wikipedia page in the keys of C, E, and G. The backing track is a drum-only loop of the 12 Bar Blues example found here. There is a number of sections each representing a variation. in order they are: [*]Standard [*]Shuffle [*]Quick Change [*]Sevenths [*]Basic Jazz Blues Progression [*]Bebop [*]Minor (with 7ths) Standard, Shuffle, and Quick Change are easy and play quite nice together (and so does Sevenths.) Sevenths, and Minor are a little more challenging. Jazz and Bebop are full of chords most other styles of music never use and are full of unusual chords... some you don't even play as chord because they sound horrible, you play them as arpeggios. Each section has 3 phrases each 4 measures (bars) long. So every section is a self-contained 12 Bar Blues progression on it's own, and they mostly play nice going one into the other. The guitar is all chords, 1 every measure or change. You can play anything you want in between: keep strumming, tiny little fills, mix and match. The bass is just the tonic but with a hand-shape (like an arpeggio) for the current chord at every measure or change. Same deal as the guitar just hit your designated note at the right time all the in-between are up for grabs. If you know a little music theory you will notice C, E, G for the C Major chord. That's to say if C is the Root/Tonic, E is III, and G is V. As long as you keep C as the overall tone you don't have to play all sections in the same difficulty. For example you play the first 4 sections as C, C, G, C making it a simple AABA type song. While testing I found that I felt into trance mode and stop paying attention so I threw in different hand positions to try and keep it more interesting. Bassist don't have that in E or G, as I got tired of looking up different fingerings. Alright, I would like feed-back of what works and what doesn't as far as a practice track goes. Depending on how it goes I may add the other keys. Links: PC (The Only One Tested) Mac Xbox360 PS3 Hope it is alright to post this here.
  5. As far as I know there is no way to force RS to hide a note. But a quick search returns some free software along with Ear Master which I tested years ago and remember liking...
  6. So is this where I should post stuff like my "12 Bar Blues" or "Rhythm Exercises" or is there a specific lesson plan / format for this section?
  7. Hello every body. Nice to see so many familiar names here. Great job on get this setup so quickly and picking IPBoard is a fantastic choice. Quick question: is there going to be a special section for lesson/exercise type customs? There used to be some talk about it and this seems like a perfect chance.
