  1. Great idea! How's about 'Standing in the Shadows of Love' by the Four Tops? I haven't been able to find GP tablature on it, but there are the standard "chords played" tabs available on a bunch of sites.
  2. Okay, I've played through it a few times, and I'll start by saying this is amazing work for a first attempt, and it's really really close to being spot-on. Many kudos to you, and please don't stop now! The tone is great and sounds just like the original recording. If there's more than a very slight difference, my ears couldn't tell. The volume could be just a smidge louder. It's fine and very audible how it is now, so maybe it's just my personal preference to hearing the guitar slightly mixed forward, since that's the instrument I'm training. Bassists may find the same thing with their track, but I couldn't tell you (Bluetac, here's hoping you remember to try this one out!) The biggest issue I've got with the charting is actually a rather small issue in the grand scheme of things- the timing is slightly off in the verses. In the choruses, I believe you've got it spot on, and if it was slightly off, I didn't notice. In the verses, though, it was quite noticeable that the chart told me to play a note/chord/double-stop at a different beat than the music did. If you were only going to devote your attention to one aspect of this track from here forward, my money says go for this one. You've mentioned this is your first CDLC, so let me absolutely assure you that properly charting a song and getting all the timings correct is the most time-consuming by a wide margin. In my eyes (ears?) it largely has to do with the fact that we're using machines with perfect timing to chart these and set the BPM meter, then expecting imperfect humans (albeit with great senses of rhythm themselves) to be as precise as our machines, down to the microsecond. And of course, it's not possible. So what we're left with is a track that almost necessarily varies from the intended BPM in several places. So sometimes it requires advancing our charted notes (or groups of notes) and sometimes it requires retarding them, even in the same song. All that is to say that this is really great and I very much encourage you to make those small final tweaks to this one, and then make many more for us to play! Of course, feel free to post any followup or questions here, or you can just PM me. I'm not usually on here very often, but I'm making an effort to change that now and get more involved. Hope to hear more from you, and thanks so much for putting this here!
  3. My friend, I'm going to test this one for you. I had intended to do so tonight, until learning it was in a different tuning than either of my guitars is set to. I'm aiming for tomorrow, but rest assured that it's on my list and I'm looking forward to it. :) Thanks so much for contributing after such a short time, and welcome to the community!
