The section after the solo has a lot of recognition issues, and the tone is low, i can barely hear myself! But besides that, it's a great CDLC, and i really like Symphony X, i still have to listen to their new album

Hi all,

Problems with Rocksmith registering? Don't bother - remember the wise words of Yngwie Malmsteen:

I'll try and work on adding the guitar part to my test file. Shouldn't be too much work since everything's synced already. I'll post it when I think it's about ready.

 

As for the new album, the lyrics are often atrociously cliched to the point where it can be aggravating, but musically and vocally it's pretty damn solid. If you want to check out a track, I'd recommend starting with Nevermore. If you think Domination is hard on your fretting hand, I think that will have you thinking again  :D.

 

Really looking forward to tabs of To Hell and Back (not my favorite epic of theirs, but I think it will be quite fun to play), Run With the Devil, and Legend (I can't imagine these last two not being ridiculously fun to play).

@@Nacholede and other MC guitarists - 

Domination Test download, now with guitar. Also used the tones I've used in my recent Symphony X CDLC, which on guitar mostly just means it's cranked up a few dB. Should be pretty damn loud now.

 

I had to move things around a fair bunch after the import, and because it seems tech notes don't get moved with the notes they are on top of, the solo might be quite messed up. If any of you can point out places that need fixes, that would be a great help.

 

Sectioned so that you shouldn't have to wait too long to play any of the hard parts in riff repeater, but also hopefully mixes hard and easy bits enough so that you don't flunk out too easily. But if you do flunk out, it doesn't have DD so there's always easy mode in score attack, or Learn a Song.

First scores for Adv, Int and Beginner. ( Don't think I'll entertain the MC this week... it sounds good but it won't if I try to :) .)

 

Adv bass: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=514482194 

 

Not a big fan of Nicklepickle, but, this is a nice bass line, chuggiddy chuggidy. Not particularly tricky though I did play it abysmally! They have some "catchy tunes" but they're a bit too safe with hooks and the lyrics often make me cringe. I'm sure they're really deep, but for me they remind me of hard to remove acne and kissing chapped lips behind bike sheds ( and they weren't even around when I was doing that! ). Room for some personal improvement, which I will make an effort with this week. 

 

Int Bass: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=514488961

Coheed and Cambria on the other hand, VERY fun to play imo, nice and easy sections to learn with a relatively complicated bit t'ward the end... I do like these guys very much, they remind me of a baby Rush but with Sam Raimi goring it all up with B movie-esque lyrics. This is a very poppy track for these guys, a solid 5.

 

Beg Bass: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=514495943

 

Love this song and for beginner this is a nice challenge, the bass line really surprised me in one spot, right at the point I thought I was going to get a home straight 100% finish... ferk! :(

Come on, you did great on Helsinki Jam, which isn't bad prep for the main riff of the song! Just ignore all of the hammer-ony, tappy parts.

 

Anyway,

Don't know why I was still using the "Bass Test" version instead of the "Test" version with guitar, but I didn't change anything of consequence on the bass path, so whatever.

 

Pretty nice streak. I think from the end of the second chorus to early in the third. I even nailed the quick hammer-ons once or twice in this run! If I have time to practice that a ton and get the tapping down (probably by going through it really slowly outside of Rocksmith) I think I might even be able to take this near 99%. Probably won't have that much time this week, though.

 

Though it will still sound like shit out of Rocksmith  :D. I'll try to do a true playthrough later in the week to see what it actually sounds like (and whether I look like a total fool when it comes to any of the fast legato runs).

 

Also, I'll have a surprise for you all in the next week or two  :ph34r:.

Bit miffed this wasn't 100% but it's a blast to play :) Int Bass: C&C: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=514758610

 

Adv Bass: Nurckle Burk: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=514758552

 

Slidey bit at the end of "MManH" is about the trickiest part of this and even then it'll be doable after a few runs in RR, I'd say this track's about a 6 at most, maybe a 6.5 if folk don't have an hour to practice/bare it ;) . (Sorry baby @@Nacholede, I know you like these guys, it's no reflection on your taste, I'm just old and farty :) .)

@@Mercenary, @@Mortalo - metal-archives and rateyourmusic disagree with you  :P

 

Anyway, new test version of Domination, Cleaned up a few things on the guitar (but still haven't really fixed up the solo), but the major change was swapping how the fast hammer-on bit goes in the chorus and related riffs. I moved that to a higher pitched string (except in the intro, where the bass can't and for the guitar it means going across the G-B line, which means different hand positions and everything) so that you can stay in the 5-9 range with your frethand for most of the riff and don't have to frantically reposition your hand for the hammer-ons.

 

It takes a little bit of time to get used to, but after spending some time in RR, it's easier to play:

Boom.

I agree with SanJose_Sharks for the most part - it's practically a meme now. Probably started because Chad Kroeger sounds like a douchebag and they're popular.

@@Nacholede I totally get why they're popular I just can't bring myself to embrace them without an overwhelming amount of "ick!" crawling under my skin, that and the number of songs that mention mirrors, or "myrhhs" as Chad's annunciation makes it sound, he's either really vain or is expecting to embalm a prophet at some point. I shouldn't make fun really, of how he pronounces things, I have a fat tongue that make me lisp and stutter. I do have a weird crush on Chad Kroger though... DON'T JUDGE ME! I can't help it!

 

@@then3verend that's hilarious :) I may be over my weird crush! Thanks!

This song is fun :) frustrating.......especially the second last section

 

There, i fixed the mistake you made in the last sentence  :D

 

Seriously, great score!

 

 

You're right :) I can't believe I made no mistake on last section ... I won't be able to do it twice :)

Bad score, My first try was better. But this will do for this week. Don't like the song.

Not sure whether it's the fact that I've been sleep-deprived all week but this feels like a hard Intermediate song. Coheed is one of my favourite bands, I'm very familiar with the track, but the string skipping in the outro riff just confuses the hell out of me. I love the main riff, it's so summery.

This one seems really easy on paper - it's the exact same two chord progressions over and over again - but getting my fingers to do it is taking longer than I expected. Even getting the +2 was a struggle. I feel like after a proper night's sleep this'll become a breeze.
