  1. Mmm... it was fun for me when I started playing, but then it just got in the way of me actually learning a song. I play Rocksmith to learn songs rather than having to use a boring tab on Guitar Pro, and with DD lowered down you're not actually learning the song, you're just playing some notes of the song. Whether you have fun playing half the song or not is up to the player I guess, but for me the way to go is slow down difficult parts, and speed it up as I learn it. I guess a beginner can lower the difficulty and play a very difficult song, but in the end he's not really playing the song anyways. I'd say the best strategy to learn and practice is slowing things down and playing them over and over until you get them. For example, scale exercises, you start out very very slow and then you start going faster and faster and that will help you with your overall playing. If you grab that same scale and play out of the 30 notes 5 notes... you're not doing anything in my opinion.
  2. I have tuned from B standard to E standard multiple times and my strings are somehow still intact lol. If there's a way to skip tuning I'd like to know too since I have multiple guitars with different tunings and it gets annoying that even though I'm tuned I need to do the tuning thing anyways. They should add a "multiple guitars" feature where you choose with which one you are playing on an update or the next RS.
  3. I don't think I will be submitting this week anything. I don't really have the time to learn a 20 minute song that I won't like, no offense to anyone who likes Dream Theater (John Petrucci is an amazing guitarist though).
  4. My final score http://i.imgur.com/UYvy9b3.jpg it's pretty shit, i know, but i haven't had time to practice this song in particular, only learned the rhythm and the first acoustic solo, the rest nothing.
  5. http://i.imgur.com/iiEcGiZ.jpg This is only playing the song itself without most of the solo... I'm too lazy to try to learn it ATM, should be closer to 98/97 if I learn it, but as of now, cba to learn it lol.
  6. Was trying to get a 98% on Dire straits lead but my hard drive went corrupt, so I had to wipe everything. This is the highest score I was able to achieve, and will be my final score unless I can install Windows 7 and RS again because apparently it doesn't support Linux. http://i.imgur.com/RwLCumz.jpg
  7. Decided to try out this championship thing. Only been playing guitar for about 10 months but felt adventurous and decided to try the master class song lol. http://i.imgur.com/jRCMtwE.jpg Only got a 92.29, played the solo part a bit messy. It isn't a hard solo, I just need to practice it a little bit more.
  8. I only really get fatigued after I've played for around 6 hours, but I've noticed that if I don't do warm ups and stretch my arms and shoulders area I get tired quicker so it is certainly good to get your hands and arms warmed up before doing anything. The John Petrucci video has some really good exercises IMO (Rock Discipline I think it's called), but they're for guitar, not 100 percent sure if they will be the same with bass. But the warm ups and stretches for sure will work.
  9. They look pretty cool and for a good price. I need a new guitar but it needs to be a Flying V + EMGs lol.
  10. This song in particular. I started playing around late November last year, not sure if I can play the solo yet, probably I'll be able to soon since I can get to that speed playing other stuff. Just gotta keep practicing.
  11. I have an Ibanez GRG20Z (first guitar) and a Schecter Damien Platinum FR. I love the Schecter, and even though the Ibanez is one of the cheap version it still plays pretty good. Probably gonna get a new guitar this month for my birthday, a Flying V or some weird shaped guitar, I need some variety lol.
  12. I lower the speed until I can pretty much do it perfectly with 0 notes wrong. Then I start upping the speed manually until I struggle to do it then repeat and repeat and repeat. To gain speed you just need to repeat it as many times as needed so that you will do it instinctively without having to think about it.
  13. Mega.co.nz is the best site in my opinion... at least for downloading things. As for the survey, I haven't encountered these problems that were listed, MF seems to work flawlessly for me.
  14. I currently have EB skinny top heavy bottom on my guitar, but I liked the ones I had on before better which were DAs EXL116 (11-52 nickel wound)
  15. Dunlops 1.5mm and got a set of 1.14mm but I still prefer the thicker pick for some reason.
  16. sounds great, thank you. and looking forward that search settings thing, I really wish I could filter results based on genre like metal, melodic death, etc.
  17. Looks awesome man, keep the A7x coming.
  18. I've never been in one yet lol... even though I would like to, no one around my area seems to like Heavy Metal and the heavier sub-genres.
  19. I personally use Amplitube 3 and Guitar Rig 5, they're pretty good and work very good with the RS cable. For tabs I use Guitar Pro 6, which I will assume most people use too one way or another.
  20. I mainly play PC since I rarely ever buy PS3 games anymore thanks to the great deals from Steam lol, but I'll play about anything. I love all Elder Scrolls games and Fallout series too (big Bethesda fan lol) and probably my favorite games are SWKOTOR and SWKOTOR II. I loved those 2 games.
  21. Well done with the updates, the site looks amazing now.
  22. Probably Twilight of the Thunder God by Amon Amarth for me. I love all the songs in that Album, specially the main one.
  23. Learn a song 100 percent of the time lol. I only use RS to learn the songs and maybe gain practice, but most I only use RS to learn songs and then I practice the rest such as my speed outside the game.
  24. I've never gotten drunk now that I think about it... also I don't drink a lot lol, might be that.
