Rocksmith 2014 Championship Week 78

Red X of "Nope. You're never going to nail muting strings!" :(

I messed that part up myself so I might not be the best person to give advice, but...

 

If I'm playing finger style I usually just lightly rest a spare finger on the string near where it's being fretted (or near the nut in the case of an open string). So for the riff at the end of the song I'd play it by fretting the A string with my middle finger with my index finger resting on the E string. It's not perfect, but it works for me for simpler riffs where muted notes come up.

I shall try that on my next run, thanks alby, sound advice in all senses I feel :)

Hey everyone, just kind of an update, I'll be returning in about two weeks, college semester is almost done :D (and boy was it brutal)

I'll lurk around to talk, but I have nowhere near to having any time to play at the moment.

 

 

I announced this here since this is where about 95% of my posts are in, and I love the championship, and I miss you guys, I really do...

 

To all the newcomers, welcome :)

Better score but worser streak (my highest being 426 but I haven't bothered posting that one since I played them back to back.)

 

I settled for switching to palm muting at the end which is really flipping awkward for me but using my bird flipping finger on my left hand wasn't producing a mute but was producing more misses and my hand just doesn't wrap round enough to get my thumb over the top... despite having a dislocatey left thumb :)

 

This song's actually really flippin' easy... a low intermediate I reck'. 4-5 perhaps on difficulty.

Beginner Lead - 99.36%, 213 streak

Beginner Rhythm - 100%, 238 streak

Though I screwed one note that RS decided to accept. So I'll give it another try. Firstly rhythm felt harder, but after getting used to it, it's way easier.

 

Intermediate Lead - 95.1%, 155 streak

This E bends on 3rd fret... Meaty :)

 

Advanced Rhythm - 85%, 62 streak

That's tough.

Spend some hours in RR. I'm definitely getting there but I'm still not satisfied. I would upload video too, but I can do better, lost my streak on couple of easy parts. :) I like the song ^_^

I've been observing the championship for weeks in the shadow, never feeling the guts to participate, but the songs this week are so great! I've been given a try and beginner/intermediate are really fun to play.

 

I guess I'll enter this week if I find the time to improve my first scores :p

 

For the moment, 79% on beginner rythm, 87% on intermediate rythm, 64% on beginner lead, 64% on intermediate lead... definitely some place for improvment.

 

BTW, thanks nicholede for the Enter Sandman version, really nice tabbing.

some bass scores today.

 

Enter Sandman Bass

 

Warp Asylum Bass

Dont really like the song, and White Zombie itself.

I doubt im playin this one again

 

Mr Sandman Bass

That middle part totally surprised me.

 

All in all sort of boring bass lines this week ( for me), well cant have it all.

On to the Alien Surfer Thingy LeadPart, again ;P

 

cheers!

@@Latsch Mr. Sandman boring? I'd say rather short but enjoyable :D Anyway I think you are still playing the old version I updated a new version yesterday mate ^^

 

yeah, i do still have the older version of it. I was kinda too lazy to download it yet haha.

While the song itself is really cool, the exciting part of the bass line is way to short ;D

The first time i played it i was like "thats no MC bass line" while i played that first part,

and then HOLY SHIT WHATS THAT in the middle, hahaha. 

But nonetheless still kinda easy if you got the hang of it.

I have to stop torturing the kids with my bass playing to allow my daughter to torture me right back with her sax practice.  Ouch, she wins.

 

I'll try again later this evening,  so far on Warp Asylum Bass I got up to 96.91%, streak of 263

 

Now I have to run to the wood shop to put on hearing protection and run some power tools :P

 

edit 96.91%

Very nice, I do appreciate it!

 

I like to watch your "downgraded to Advanced" videos more than the ones against Masterclass. Advanced songs I feel like I can actually learn something by watching verses MC where it's often just way above my skill level. I've mostly been playing Metallica this week but I'll give White Zombie at least one try. It looks like it was mostly repetitive but had a few faster parts in there.

 

Thanks!

@@punchyrumble, a fella I follow on youtube called Josh Fossgreen does some great tuition videos, give him a watch, his fret hand technique is spot on . I can only wish I 'll loosen up but I guess that'll come with more practice :) you might be in danger of picking up bad habits off my stiff spidery performances :D my pinky finger just won't chill th f' out! Sticks out like I'm drinking tea from a china cup .
