Congrats to all the winners. Here is the moment to highlight @@Num14

. It's different version but still really impressive.

  
The songs for this week are:
 

 

This week is a little different. I scrapped random and decided to have more of a personal aproach.

 

Beginner:  The Beatles - Twist and Shout (Chosen by the genius of George, John, Paul and Ringo )

When I was young I didn't liked The Beatles. You know, I was a boy, playing video games, watching JCVD or Arnold, rooting for Rescue Squad led by squirrels. How could I like love songs sung by British? Now, I can admire the guitar work and crazy bass lines. I wanted to select Beatles for this week, as they're one of the most impressive bands, with lots of great songs. This one is fast, tricky and I like it. I hope you will like it as well :)

Intermediate: Johnny Hallyday - Allumer le Feu (Chosen by @@steroma )

You wanted Elvis Presley? You got one! Well, at least the French Elvis Presley! If you're french speaking person you should be familiar with one of the biggest French RockStars.
Song is really fun to play, with hard solo, and it just fits that Beg bass and rhythm I needed for this week. Sorry Int Leads.

 

Advanced: Iron Maiden - No More Lies (Chosen by @@Joey )

@@Joey is a big part of Championship. He was there when most of us started this adventure. As a man who took over his work, I felt that it'll be great to have him select one of this weeks songs. And he didn't let us down with this fantastic choice!
 

Masterclass: Dream Theater - Octavarium (Chosen by @@Nacholede )

I will tell you a story of a young kid. That kid was a big fan of Octavarium. But when Organizer noticed that he wants this song to be selected, said "no, it's too long". But kid didn't want to let it go. He traveled sea, air, space and time. He reached the Organizer, he begged. But he got a task. A quest, to find the Octavarium. Kid dind't waste any time. He started that dangerous adventure. He traveled around the world, he fought the deadliest monsters, listened to the crappiest music, but couldn't find it. And then it struck him. Octavarium was not far away. It was close. It was in his heart! Organizer seeing kid's love towards that song, decided to approve it and select for week 50.
Maybe that's not exactly what happened, but it's almost true :P

 

Rhythm Path:

 

Beginner:  Johnny Hallyday - Allumer le Feu

Intermediate: The Beatles - Twist and Shout

Advanced:  Iron Maiden - No More Lies (Bonus Rhythm)

(Advanced Rhythm is Bonus Rhythm part from No More Lies! You can find it in bonus arrangements. You can't play it in score attack, but still it's better then nothing :) )

Masterclass: Iron Maiden - No More Lies

 

Bass Path:

 

Beginner: Johnny Hallyday - Allumer le Feu
Intermediate: The Beatles - Twist and Shout

Advanced: Iron Maiden - No More Lies
Masterclass: Dream Theater - Octavarium

Beginner Lead - 97.57%, 203 streak
Solo is tricky but short, you will handle it with ease.

Beginner Bass - 99.75%, 979 streak

Intermediate Rhythm - 59%, 17 streak
This barre chords look scary, but as soon as you'll learn them it should be ok.

Intermediate Bass - 83%, 39 streak
That's fast. That's hard. That's Paul McCartney at his best.

Advanced Lead - 92%, 202 streak
MasterClass Rhythm - 93%, 244 streak
Advanced Bass - 94.3%, 631 streak

MasterClass Bass - 89%, 341 streak
And that's difficult. Some parts makes me scratch my head.

@@Nacholede May be for you it 20 min of epicness, for me it 20 min of shame :)

Likes are likes. But this is a masterpiece. Also, this is a great song to challenge yourself and see what you are capable of

Besides, shame? nah, absolutely not. That's maybe because you are not a great fan of Dream Theater, but you know...this type of songs are great and it's a great way to beat yourself

Argghhh, I like Twist an Shout very much, but as a French man I have to compete on "allumer le feu"!!!

I'm very pleased by this pick, thank you Mortalo!

I hope some people will "croiser le fer" with me on this great French song...

does that song title translate to " light the fire " ?  

 

je besoin un nouveau vie, et une poid de mm.   pour mon fete lol .

Good selection of songs this week!

 

My first impressions are that in the lead path, int and adv songs should be swapped. I scored 85% on the first playthrough of Iron Maiden, whereas only 75% on Johnny Hallyday. I felt this song was a lot more technical than the IM song.

 

Anyone else find the same, or is it just me  :unsure:

I hope you guys enjoy my pick I will post some scores on it tomorrow. While dream theater is not a band I would listen to often I cannot deny that they are an awesome band and I will attempt to play this 20 minute song.

So competition beg lead is on earlier this week, eh ;)

I'm definitely in - looks like the beatles could be dragging us to intermediate on a 99+ cause you are already close, and i wont stop until lead or saturday :)

 

Great that you joined,

R.

@@MonstaS4 I also had worst score on Allumer, then on No More Lies, but I felt that the French one is easier. Allumer le Feu is not as fast as Maiden's, solo is longer and difficult, but again Iron's one is fast and crazy. I think they're both Advanced, but Allumer is easier to master.

 

Great you like the songs :)
