Rocksmith 2014 Championship Week 100!

Recommended Posts

Back after a slight absence, finishing up college life (last time, I swear) and moving house didn't leave me with a lot of time, but no matter.

 

Week 100, quite an accomplishment for everyone involved in running the championship, and what a line up !

Not bad, only the double time riff in the middle is giving me a bit of difficulty.

 

Comfortably Numb coming along nicely, still got five or six sections of the solo to nail down, slightly blistered one or two fingers today :)

 

Hoping to get those two out of the way before too long and spend the rest of the week on World on Fire, looks like fun !

hehe, I rather don't like Elvis very much, but I like to play it :blush:

the only difficulty here is to get that C-shape chords quickly at the transitions. One time one string of them is bended  :pig:

There's always one miss on Jailhouse Rock on bass - different each time, leaving me with 99.67%.  I'll try it again later this week.

 

I had a tiny uptick in Comfortably Numb, but nothing worthy of another screen shot.

Seems like I've underestimated myself:

 

 

 I can probably take that to 95% or so within the week.

Still have a bit of trouble on the intro riff (string skipping stuff), the pre-solo/solo riff (everything), and the outro riff (esp. with doing correct palm muting), but the others I've pretty much got down.

 

Anyway, since I am technically in the intermediate class, I should probably give Comfortably Numb a go on rhythm.

 

Also a small improvement on The Lemon Song, but I'll be doing many more attempts at that so I'll save that screenshot and post it only if I can't improve further. Which would be disappointing, because I made some really dumb blunders after the first intense bit.

When RR'ing bass line on Seek & Destroy I'm feeling the chart scrolling to be a little bit off. Anyone else getting a feeling of a sync issue when playing the chart by sight reading? to me it sounds way off from the tune I hear, but, when I play by ear it sounds great but getting an awful lot of late/miss messages.

Ok, because of poor results and overall lack of skill @NoonyDeloony gets downgraded to Advanced. She would be forever remembered as shameful person... and then she'll make another charming video and we'll forget about that.

Intermediate Lead - 93.95%, 62 streak

I fear that I won't get better score without some serious RR'ing. Earlier I had a run with streak of 102, I probably hit all notes in 1st solo, but I don't know how I did it :ph34r:

yeah let´s start w100...

 

warmup? ... no - 3 hours of tennis should have done the job..

 

Seek&Destroy it is... this one is quite a holy cow for me... one of my fav songs of all time, definition of trash metal, a song ´tallica won´t leave the stage before that one has been done...

never tried to play that since 10-15 years ago when i stopped playing out of frustration - that was one of the songs that made me stop cause no chance at all to manage even a part... When joining the CS i put it on my "to be mastered list"...

 

so lets see how far my journey has come (downloading)...

The downlevel was ok - signature riff hit me fast and hard and there was quite some blasphemy involved - how can i go for that song with a opeth guitar when there is ESP LTD in the house???

 

Extremely pleased with score and sound :)

I now have all of the parts in hand for my next crime against good taste and the FreeBird police.  Assembly may take a few days, so for now I will only taunt them in my best Monty Python Spaniard voice with a partial list of the parts:

  • a rarely used 3/4 scale el cheapo classical guitar
  • a new set of U-Bass strings
  • a new set of bass tuning machines
  • a piezo pick-up and pre-amp

Mwahahahaaa!  By the end of this week, they will be at my mercy.

Some progress on The Lemon Song

Tried to upload a video of this playthrough, but apparently they're blocking uploads of the song (or at least new ones, given that there's already a bajillion bass covers online, including @@bernixix's). Anyway, it actually didn't feel very good, as there were parts in the first half where I came very close to bailing. I guess the second half went OK, though.
