@@franfit - The audio being disabled probably means copyright BS.

 

@@Angelina27 - With regards to doing score score attack on easy for songs without DD, I think it mostly comes down to preference. At the percentages where you aren't able to pass hard (unless the charter was a jackass and made several nearly impossible sections in the song, so it's hard to pass even at high accuracies), you're probably better off improving your accuracy by learning the song better rather than trying to squeeze out a few .1% in accuracy via score attacking. However, I generally like the greater level of feedback in score attack compared to learn a song, so I'll try to do score attack for my serious runs whenever possible.

 

Anyway, here are a few updates:

 

MC bass:

Very tricky, but I think if I dedicated myself to it I could 100% it. Towards the end of this run I was starting to feel pretty comfortable with jumping around a bit for the verse riff. Also tried playing the A's on the open string but I tended to get confused in the plucking pattern, so I mostly stuck with playing it how it's charted.

 

I'll leave the image links for songs out of my class as just links in this post so I don't take up too much space.

 

Adv Bass:

Better than my playthrough video... still chasing the 100%, though. Also, getting the hang of the verse riff on guitar. Still not up to full speed (I think I got ~85% accuracy at 75% speed), but I think by tomorrow or the day after I'll be able to do something that might be recognizable as the verse riff at 100% speed. Started practicing by going in RR and just getting my fretting hand in position for each arpeggio and not doing anything with my picking hand, then adding that in once the transitions felt fluid.

 

MC rhythm:

I didn't know what the hell I was doing for most of the chords.

Other than the actual solos, that didn't feel too terrible!

Maybe it's time for me to participate in this. Cold hard bitch is a killer song and has just the right hardness level for me :)

I really like the ... Note Streak Feedback in SA and furthermore the Streak broken shows (esp. on bass plays) which part to work on. Of course you have to turn off the audio effects for the messages in the options menu.

A really annoying missing feature for me is that the acc. % from SA is not used for mastery % in LAS (which is the same when autoMM is turned off) - i like to sort my songs by mastery (e.g. for creation of a 90+ only nonstop play) and the numbers shown are just wrong if i forget to do a final LAS run :angry: . I really hope they change that if they ever do a sequel.

puh, this belongs to MC I would say, but I didn't try the real MC

 

2nd try in SA, 1st had XX, about 5% below and about 100k points less

I played the whole song only with my poor fingers, strumming with nails and fingerpicking style for the verses.

Still very hard and fast at an uncommon rhythm. The chords are almost common jazz chords.

In the intro is on chord repeating, this D7, which I played with another fingering, because like it is it's harmful for the wrist.

It's like that

http://up.picr.de/23254234ec.png

instead playing this note f# with your poor pinky on 7th fret you can also play the same note on the high e string on 2nd fret. More easy and quicker to change.

I made a selfi from my hand  :lol: holding this D7. If you use those fingers life is much easier.

Little update for intermediate, will play more tonight and do a little video to replace the audio obsolete Jet playthrough of QotSA instead. It really is a lovely bass line that :D

@ - for some reason I was having serious troubles with that fingering yesterday, but I guess my fingers figured something out overnight. 

 

Anyway, Pool v2.0 (v1.9 plus that chord change. Yay for Ctrl+L) is available, and the record has been updated. Hopefully there won't be too many more changes to the tab. If the tone can be improved and you have ideas for a better one, let me know!

 

Keep grinding away at those chords!

Thanks @@Kiscsak98 for this CDLC :) Great fun to play. It's gets all creepy once the bass stops and I've nowhere else to look apart from at my screen, so apologies if anyone felt like I was stealing their essence... I am pretty sure I saw the girl from The Ring staring at me through the window when I looked out ;) 
 
Fingers crossed I'll be allowed to have the audio on this one (though it does sound flakey in parts and I fuck up quite a bit at the end... but hey! I'm a flake!)
 
I acknowledge third party content and I do not own copyright to this music. Cheers for watching. (covering my tracks for copyright popo!)

Some updates from tonight.

 

MC Bass: Remember how I said I thought I could hit 100%?

http://i.imgur.com/zYuXHxz.jpg

Well, I didn't quite get there (2 misses), but I think that'll do.

 

Adv Rhythm: I still screw up all over the place (more on this later), but I'm getting better.

http://i.imgur.com/oE0g4EC.jpg

Bonus screenshot of how I did on the phrases.

 

Adv Lead: More or less the same story as rhythm.

http://i.imgur.com/oUs0mDq.jpg

Bonus screenshot.

 

 

 

While this certainly doesn't apply to all, or even most, of my misses, I'm definitely struggling a bit on some of these chords because of my failure to hit the root note cleanly. This happens all the freakin' time on the A5 chords where my fingertips accidentally mute the A string (are my fingers fat?). It also happens sometimes on the D chords since sometimes (I think only in the preverses?) they have an open A, whereas they usually don't. Is this intentional (an inversion, I guess), @? There may have been some other chords that also change their appearance a bit throughout, but the Ds were the ones I noticed the most because of how often they make me miss.

@@albatross213 for those D/A you just have to hit 5 strings. That are normal chords with another bassnote, in this case A what is the fifth of this chord, also known as slash chords. It let the chord sounds deeper and fuller than with normal root. You can hear this often in songs by i.e. Linkin Park. I heard it here when I transcibed it and I'm pretty sure it's correct.

I can actually do this. Setting myself a target of 96% if I exceed that then I'll be well happy as even though my score is pretty appalling the strike I got was from bad hand placement in one section, had it have been in the right place I'd have nailed the notes fine. I like the rhythm of this, very jazzy... will try the 2.0 version later as I'd forgot to DL it earlier.

My first try at Jet - Cold Hard Bitch, and it was a bitch alraight :) Some note recognition issues at the first section,

but I guess I need to practice some more.

Edit. Apparently I missed the print screen button at the critical moment. Accuracy was 72,9 % but I'll try it again today to get it better. Hopefully I'll be able to take the picture at the right time.

I've been a bit despondent this week - I don't know why…  I think sometimes you practice and practice and show no improvement, and other times you don't play for a couple of days and come back firing.  It's odd.  Anyway, I've been on one of those "practice and practice" stretches...

 

My first scores weren't very good.  I won't bother posting the screens but I had 99% on Jet (yes, that was good), then 87% on QOTSA and 88% on Tricot, so that at first I actually thought that If I Had a Tail was more difficult than Pool...

 

And then I've played them a few more times.  The songs are in the right order. :)

 

And f'in' Google Drive is not playing at home again tonight - I will post screens in the morning.

 

I got 98.69% on QOTSA (thanks to @@NoonyDeloony for the video inspiration - I realised how good the bass line was when I saw you play it), and  95.27% on Tricot.  I'm pleased with those two scores. :)

No you don't have fat fingers - you have bassist's fingers.

 

You're playing the wrong instrument. :)
