Beastly sounds amazing :) I might give that a go :D

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.

Nazareth - Hair of the Dog

Quite funny, heavy on pinky with many bends. HInt: bends on G string - pull them down (towards B string), that way it's easier.

 

Tenacious D - The Ballad Of Hollywood Jack And Rage Kage

Chord practice. Bass is a silly joke, though.

 

Velvet Revolver - Fall to Pieces

Fun song. Surprisingly it's Slash song where solo is not the most difficult part of it. Bass line is really nice.

 

Vulfpeck - Beastly

As bass paths are rather easy this week, I added this one to kill our MC bassist. Sorry.

 

Sylosis - Empyreal

The sweap song! That's the one that introduced me to Sylosis. It's hardly my favorite, but not many cdlc has bass. Bass is not that difficult but it's very fast, thus Advanced (Fall to Pieces is more complex but very slow). Lead? Your sweaping skills will be tested this week :lol:

Did a few runs on Beastly. First a sightread as it had been a while since I played it and I wanted to see how I did compared to my playthrough video. Then spent a little bit of time in riff repeater familiarizing myself (meaning doing a few runthroughs at 70% speed) with the sections in the big solo, and came up with this:

Noticed several things that are a bit off, so I fixed them (referring to the video if I was unsure how they were played) and uploaded a v1.1 to the download folder. Will test it, then if I'm happy with it I'll update the record.

 

Anyway, seems I'll probably be doing a less sucky playthrough video for this.

Competing in the weekly championships is all about what you have to play.

 

Being a FreeBird is all about what you choose not to play.  So being a bass player, and not having taunted the FreeBird police in quite some time, this week I choose to stop being an enabler for sub-par guitar wankery.  Instead, I will concentrate solely on my own personal sub-par bass wankery.  

 

It is waaay over my head, but I will work on Beastly.  I've spent about 45 minutes in RR at speeds no higher than 75% on the first few sections, then I gave it a full speed run through.  I did better than I expected, seeing as I had to sit out the solos because I can't sight read at that speed.  Here is my sub-par wankery.

@@2groggy, a beautiful, succinct use of the word "wankery" :)

MasterClass Lead - 77%, 173 streak

This one needs more then sightreading :lol: I tried to learned those sweaps ( :lol: ) but on 1% speed it's still too fast (it's fair to say that I suck on sweaps, though).

Quite nice song. There are few better ones on that album, my opinion.

Scores for this week!

http://i.imgur.com/mSXJwnG.jpgARGH, MY HANDS. I suck at sweep picking, is one of those techniques that i simply can't play even if i try, but well...also, ignore those bars.

And i can't believe that i have a better score in a Dragonforce song than in this one

Advanced rhythm:

MC lead:

http://i.imgur.com/5LGxAdb.jpgDidn't do a great job everywhere on the rhythm on this (really bad at the fast technical riff late in the song. Will need to remember to practice that before future runs. If I do future runs).

 

I found that this song could use a much faster scroll speed than what it's set at. I changed it to 1.3, and it seems to space things out enough without making everything go by in a flash. I also changed the scroll speed on the Velvet Revolver song, but haven't yet tested the new speed.

 

Lastly, I noticed that sometimes in the intro riff I was getting a few misses in rapid succession for no discernable reason. After playing around a bit I'm reasonably certain that they are due to the sustain tails from that one chord, so if you're having problem with misses on that riff I'd suggest giving that chord another strum shortly before the sustain ends.

 

P.S. Suck it, @@Nacholede!  :P

I fucked up on my first play, but it is easy:

Rocksmith was hiding this from me, for a second go tonight, so here's my first attempt:

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B49Qq-EFnmrKd1FScURzSVhrWEk/view?usp=sharing

 

I thought I'd done really well on this (only missed a couple of notes) and wondered why it was advanced...

And then I played it on Score Attack and all the difficult parts appeared.

I hate it when Rocksmith does that.

 

I also fucking hate terrorism.  Be it Iraq, Syria, Beirut, Paris - all the same really.  And I don't trust my Government as far as I could throw it. :(
