Is this the third week in a row where the masterclass bass song is by @@bernixix? I guess we're keeping him busy with updates!

 

Also, @@Mortalo, you missed my Ktulu playthrough. Link  :D

Muffin Man is quite fun, bass was nice to play.

I love Iron Maiden, I very like their early stuff with Di'Anno, and I just can't get into Don't Look to... I played it in both paths and that's it for me this week.

Monsters. Here we're talking. Final song from great Guitar Hero 3. So, so much fun. And nice hard solo. I know what I'll be playing this week :D

That's 4th. Earth Angel, Rush, Metallica and Maiden's now. That's just coincedence. I prevent from songs in a one class from one participants 2 times in a row, but only on lead. It would be impossible to keep track everywhere, and I'm not looking at who charted that particular song.

yes, but unfortunately bernixix is in vacation as I know and maybe no updates will happen this time, so let's hope everything is good.

So, a few quick comments on the songs:

 

The Haim and Matchbook Romance songs were harder than I was expecting. The latter has some tweaks that could be made to make it more user-friendly (from what I remember, the verse riff is played once with open strings, while the rest of the times it's with the 5th fret. Also the variation that ascends to the 9th fret seems like it could be done more intuitively and with less shifting with a 4-7 fret hand position).

 

Muffin Man's pretty fun to play. Some very tricky parts.

 

The Iron Maiden - takes some time to get used to the arpeggios (I always freaked out when they showed up in the solo section of The Trooper). First time I tried score attacking I think I flunked out on the fourth phrase  :lol:. So I was pretty happy when on my second SA attempt I did this:

 

http://i.imgur.com/38l7qe0.jpg

 

Main thing that I could see that I'd want to change is that the arpeggios are done with different hand positions (changing whether the eighth one is anchored at E9 or A4) in the bulk of the song vs. the outro. I think I prefer the outro version (so that the anchor string in the eight positions in each repeat is A A A E A A A E rather than A A A E A A A A. Also less of a drastic shift back to the beginning, though you do have to switch strings).

 

Only other thing I noticed is in the heavier verses it sometimes switches between longer sustains and eighth notes. Knowing @@bernixix, it probably actually does!

 

Lastly, I think Muffin Man might actually be harder, as there's a lot more variation and some really tricky parts to it. With the Maiden, once you get the hang of the arpeggios there isn't really much else to the song difficulty wise. I'll have to check on that.

 

Edit: Why is the tongue emoji different? It's kind of creeping me out.

New Week Ahoyyy!

As always im starting on the bass

 

Forever Bass

Awesome Song! My favourite this week, really cool groove on the bass.

Felt that there are slight sync issues but nothing really game-breaking.

 

Monsters Bass

My first thought was "fuck this was released 9 years ago??"

little bit of nostalgia for me ;) Cool song!

 

Muffin Man Bass

I played it two times now, and i already slightly dislike that long intro where Zappa is talkin...

But cool bass line, again felt slight sync issues here, but nothing big.

 

Dont Look to Whatever Bass

Somebody told me i shouldn't look at the Eyes of A Stranger, but im not sure...

To be honest, and i really dont want to always hate on the Metal Songs, (i really try!),

but this song shouldn't be 8 Minutes long.

Soooo much boring redundancy in here, but that aside its an ok to cool song.

Though one playthrough per day is enough^^

Charting wise i havent notice any issues.

 

cheeeriioo!

I had my first passes on bass for this week

Forever

Muffin Man

Monsters

I'll be traveling for part of the week and will limit my self to one of these.  Monsters seems to be the most fun.

 

Hmmm, now I do have a travel guitar that will fit in overhead storage....  I's still trying to decide if I'll have time to even touch it.

This is great...my RS Cable is dead 

Well, uh, now you have an explanation for why things weren't working last week! May you find a new cable swiftly and cheaply.

 

RS cables here in Argentina are really REALLY expensive, and i don't have money hahaha

I'll see what i can do, i will try to make this thing work

@Nacholede  :thumbsdown:  :sob:

 

I remember you had troubles with the cable in the past, can you not fix it again just like before?

 

If not...here's some money with wings

Well, a few minutes ago the RS Cable was just pure noise, even if i unplugged it from my guitar, but now it doesn't do any noise, but when i plug it, yes. Don't know if the main problem is the guitar or the cable, because everything started when i moved one of the knobs
