Recommended Posts

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.

 

After buying two Kala U-basses, I've always fancied a go at this.

Anyway, Google Drive is very slow this morning, so you'll have to take my word for it:

 

B: 98%

I: 95%

A: 92%

 

All bass scores, of course, and I'll update my advanced score later in the week.  I'd say the songs are definitely in the right order, but beginners are going to be stretched this week.  I'm not going anywhere near that Lemon Party...

How is the note recognition for the u-basses on RS?  The whole point is to get my 13 y.o. daughter playing bass when she won't play on a 34" scale - the stretch is too much for her (yes, I know, she should just move her fretting hand, but she is even more stubborn than her mother)

Note recognition is fine - as long as the battery is fully charged (as I eventually found out). lol

 

It obviously doesn't stay in tune as well as my full size steel stringed bass, but it's a good compromise for when I'm on the road.  Drop tunings, IIRC, are a little difficult though...

Nope.  Google Drive is still playing up.

 

Tonight, I got 94.95% on Metallica (which I'm quite pleased with) and 97.97% on Pink Floyd (which I'm also quite pleased about).  I missed a few of the chords on Pink Floyd, but at least I actually tried to play them… :)

MC update: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=523052906

 

Squeezing lemons is hard :)

 

I'm managing the first verse pretty well and the solo'y bit right after it where it goes all splashy and fast ( I did F'up a LOT during the first verse in this SA attempt though but after 2 hours in RR my hands gave up remembering what I'd learnt and I've also developed a trapped nerve in my shoulder )

 

I got a fair way through this time, to the end of the second splashy quick bit but I hadn't spent much RR time in that second, just wanted to see if I could get through the entire song... Alas, no. Definitely need a little rest tonight from it. Have a bit more time this week as the Cricket season closed so I have less shifts ( less money too :( boooo! ) but, more time to practice, YAY!!! :)

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.

After probably half an hour in RR getting used to some of the chord changes (though many still mess me up pretty bad), mastering the first solo, and select bits and pieces of the end solo with lots of easy (or at least easier) to hit notes, I'm now comfortably above 80%. Yay.

Will probably have more goes on this song on rhythm to get used to chord changes and reading chords, but I don't think I'll do too much more on lead. The hard parts are enough above my ability level that I don't think improving them would be the best use of what time I have this week.

 

Might also try the advanced lead, just to see how much higher my percentage will be on that song given the easier and more note-full rhythm parts. Then again, that solo's probably going to totally wreck me.

 

Edit: Added Seek and Destroy Scores. Since they're out of my class, I figure they're OK in an edit.

 

Lead:

Rhythm (updated run):

The outro riff (like, last riff before the last chord. Not the one before it with the power chord slide) was FUBAR'ed. Nailed it every other time it shows up in the song, but my fretting hand, picking hand, and brain were all on different pages at the end. Would've been above 97% without that.

 

Based on what I saw in the Leaderboard, it looks like @@Rodman has been putting in some work, too!

 

Also, @@missis sumner - you don't have to use google drive for image hosting, do you? Or are you sponsored by google drive?

IT'S ALIVE!  The kit-bashed rubber band bass makes noise.  It even stays in tune for most of a song :lol: (pix to follow)

 

Comfortably Numb on a home made bass ukelele (take THAT FreeBird Police :P ).  There was a marked down-tick in my score, mostly because I'd miss by a fret or two, and the octaves are far narrower than I'm used to.

 

Mission accomplished.  Now it's time to pass the torch to the next generation of FreeBird Police Taunters.

That didn't take long!  I take it you put a new nut on?  What did you do about the bridge and headstock?

Yo, only had 5 runs rhy and lead so far, i just cannot not play that one, maybe - against my competitive soul - due to lack of time i might ignore everything else and S&D some personal targets here...

I should probably get started, eh?

Learned this forever ago, but just kind of putzed the solo back then. Very tricky for an Intermediate player, with all of those fast bends and fret muting and ahhh! I think I might be able to do it if I try.

Super familiar with the song but first time seeing it from behind the guitar instead of behind the kit. I'd jam this on the drums with my brother a lot, now I get to learn it on guitar! That solo's hard but the rest is pretty simple.
