Great video @@Gamut! Love rocking out to that song :). Shut that wardrobe door would you? I just watched Paranormal activity 3! Though I am pleased that Canadian wardrobes are as organised as mine :)

 

Not out of bed yet but here's my Int score, portrayed in the medium of... Contemporary dance. Not really, I made that up. I can't dance for poop... I think I might have got a teeny bit drunk after work and still under the effects. Vid!

@@Rodman I think She Rides by Danzig would be a good beginner song. RR works and has lead and Bass. It's probably a 1 on skill level. Check it out and see if it will fit.

 

Just put it in the SSL!!!!!!

(link in my post above)

 

I added it. I don't know if I put it in the right place, but since it looked like it was sorted by difficulty I put it where I thought it might go difficulty wise. If I did it incorrectly I apologize. BTW glad to have joined you guys and gals, just wish I could play better :)

It seems like its time again to remind us all of

mighty mighty

Song Selection List

 

Please take a few minutes to put up to 4 songs of your choice there to have it played in the coming weeks in the competition!

 

Rules?

- Song must contain at least lead or rhythm guitar and bass.

(Real guitar and bass only songs - meaning that there is no bass/guitar played, not that it is not charted - can be paired as a choice or put in the seperate sheets)

- Must have a custom tone and RR must be working.

- Song should not be too long (8 - 10 mins is the absolute limit)

 

Besides feel free to add difficulty ratings to all songs/paths in the list.

 

At the moment there are few songs in the list so any added song has a high probability of being chosen right for the next weeks.

 

Please join in to help keepin the contest running at the high level.

 

Thx

 

I went to the future in my DeLorean, and we played Empire Of The Clouds on the next week (?)  :ph34r:  :ph34r:

It must be something to do with heavy gauge strings I was using, because I'm sure I was having note recognition issues with this song the first time around.  I say "was" because I've just snapped the G string - balls, and the evening started so well. :(

 

BTW - I think it's a really good idea to play some of the old songs again.  It's a real boost when you can measure some improvement, no matter how small, over the course of some months. :)

@@Viltaire Yes, well done. Though it's not really important where you place it, as it will be sorted later on.

Sightreads on Helloween.

 

Bass:

http://i.imgur.com/mcdHyS8.jpgScrewed up hand positioning a few times, most importantly during the tapping section. Pre-chorus is pretty tricky, as I remembered it, but by the last time I think I made it through without any mistakes. Should be able to improve pretty significantly with practice, as all of the difficult parts seem doable.

 

Rhythm:

I was really hoping there wouldn't be something in the outro to strike me out. Didn't have an easy time with the solo, but I should expect that given I was doing a sight-read. Verses aren't especially easy for me at that speed, but they aren't intimidatingly hard.

 

Lead:

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

More solos and leads than rhythm, but a lot of it was just playing a relatively simple pattern really fast. Screwed up hand positions a few times (it's harder finding frets when they're so small!), but overall an easier sight-read than rhythm. Could still be harder than rhythm once you get down to the nitty-gritty of improving on it, though.

 

 

 

Anyway, some things I might want to change:

-Song volume might be a bit quiet.

-Bass tone is definitely too quiet.

-Bass should be marked as "picked"

-On lead there was a run of harmonics in the solo that seemed weird. I'll have to double-check that.

-During the riff at the end of the verse (doubled notes, unison between all three paths) there were one or two spots where I thought it might be easier to avoid switching strings by not playing open notes (D, I think) and instead playing it on the 5th fret of the A string. Maybe similarly for some of the galloping lines on bass.

 

Let me know if you agree or disagree with any of these changes, or have any other advice for making the custom better!

@ That tip was awesome.

My main issue is I'm slightly behind speed wise on the riff and I want to look at my fingers. I have a very bad habit of always wanting to look at the fretboard. I guess I just don't trust my fingers. Will work on it more later in the week. It's not difficult at all, just a bit faster than I'm used to i guess.

This is a fecking excellent song! Again pretty all over the neck across all 4 strings (ok seldom the low D but hey, beggers can't be choosers) 

 

Happily (string) skips away :)

Lead path is still easy in  the 2nd exercise

http://up.picr.de/23581291wb.jpg
the others are even harder
http://up.picr.de/23581292pk.jpg
esp those small bendings makes it hard to keep the streak

I keep forgetting to use the exercises you've created @. I promise to make an effort this week and not slack off from learning some proper scale training. Thankyou for these!
