Want something new.... ????

Well ... here comes:




From time to time i am gonna put songs in for extra challenge from about 6-12 months ago in the weeks that i am to start. Songs that have been great, songs with a lot of competitors, songs a week just was not enuff...


so starting with


week 44´s - Metallica  - Jump in the Fire.(Chosen by @ScottLP)


the former competitors scores are there in the table - so if you wanna check your progress give it another try and kick your own score or just take the extra challenge to play an extra song competition-wise.


Rules? - no Rules! Rules are for church guitarists!

#Everybody is welcome to post his score!

#No awards, no points, no nothing, just fun!


If you have an extra song you wanna play again - let me know, and in general be verbose about the idea!

My Customs


The reasons why most of my customs are not updated yet:

1.)I'm lazy to do it because I have no motivation for it

2.)I'm not at my computer

3.)I'm working on a song that I haven't made it yet

4.)I don't have any song to work on it

First attempts (at least in a while...) on each one:


Beg bass: This is a 3? Really? While most of it isn't too bad, there's some pretty tricky stuff interspersed into the song (and under the solo, where I wasn't paying attention, lost fret hand position, and missed a bunch of notes).


Int bass: Pretty easy as there's not much beyond a little shifting. Wasn't really sure why it stuck to the low string so much, other than that the guitars probably do given the drop tuning. I'd rate "God is Dead?" above this in difficulty.


Adv bass: Chorus was pretty tricky the first time through, but by the third time I got the hang of it. Some really big and fast shifts, which were the main source of difficulty for me.


Jump in the Fire bass: Seems like one of the more boring Metallica songs on bass. Seems like it should be good fun on guitar, though.


MC bass:


The hard parts aren't quite as hard as I remembered them being, but they're still pretty hard at full speed. Probably would change my difficulty rating to an 8.



Anyway, if you notice anything off or anything that can be improved in The Duellists, let me know and I'll see what I can do. I noticed a minor mistake in the hard bass riff under the first melodic harmony. The sooner you let me know the more likely I'll be able to fix it before this week is over!

Beg lead. Definitely could have played better if I was focused on it, but I still think this song seems pretty difficult for beginner. It's not as hard as the bass chart, but there's still some pretty tricky stuff in spots.


Adv lead: Attempt 1, attempt 2, attempt 3 (not pictured, but worse than attempt 2 despite doing some RR on the arpeggio bit in between I think because I was daydreaming during the verses and screwing up all of that), then...


attempt 4! This felt pretty good, but by this point I'm starting to feel like I could do a lot better. There's not really any part of the song that I shouldn't be able to play at a 90%+ accuracy with some practice. Lots of shifting, a few weird chords (that I think could be charted in an easier fashion), and arpeggios with a string skip. It all takes some getting used to, but none of it feels impossibly hard.


Also, the first few times I played this I was like "Yes! The solo is here! Now I can actually get a streak going!". I feel like this is going to be one of the only songs rated 8 or above I'll ever say that about.


Edit: Forgot to say that I tried Jump in the Fire on guitar and it's much better than on bass. Not yet to the point where I feel confident about a full playthrough, but I'm getting the chorus riff down. Since it uses more than two strings, I naturally suck at it.

Got a head start on this week's Advanced, what with all the being obsessed with Ghost I did last week:




This is off the album I like the least, but it's one of the best tracks on it. Got a cool 3/4 thing going that gives it an eerie carnival feel. Because so much of it is crazy octave chord sustains all over the neck, it's kind of tricky to score well on, but I think it's a pretty simple Advanced song on the whole.

I feel dirty now:






(It's the first time I've picked up a guitar in about 10 years, and it feels and sounds like a banjo - probably because I'm not being to picky (no pun intended) about which string(s) I'm plucking… lol)


There.  That's better:




This is not an easy bass song.  Definitely a four or five I would say...

A song "God is dead" have very slow temp, so everething thats needed, it a bit RR, there no complicated technique and chords. (Only mini solo in the end is really hard for beginners). My rate there 3.5, it hard for beginners and very easy for intermediate.

My score:

Almost every time I've played this song, I kept feeling like I was getting at least 95. It took me doing it in Score Attack to figure out why - I get super bad recognition issues if I play the chorus the way it's meant to be played. If I sustain every note in the chord like in the song, almost every single note on the A string gets missed. If I mute before each note, it recognises fine, but then it ruins the riff. :(

Lovely song to play on bass :) I've committed a lot of it to memory so hoping to even master mode it. I like the "all over the neckness" , sweet tune to listen to too :)

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.
