RIP Lemmy.

Our tribute to Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister of Motorhead:

A song by  Motorhead - Stay Clean

 

Where would we be without Lemmy? Early on Motorhead was called the worst band ever, bacause of their fast but simple music. Style that inspired thrash metal bands that formed in early 80s. Known from being the loudest band on earth, Motohead became one of the greatest metal bands on earth. Lemmy was big part of this success. With his gavelly voice and bass that incorporated double stops and chords, he was one of a kind.

Rest In Peace mister Lemmy, we will never forget you.

I am thinking, i must come back in advanced class, as freebird i have not enough motivation for hard practice, and as the  result - lost skill.

Is nobody against?

 

 

Glad to have you back in Advanced class! Duelling scores with you was one of my biggest motives for pushing myself since joining the CS.  Between your return and all of the former Intermediate lead players that have become huge shredding forces, Advanced lead competition should be better than ever. :notes:

 

In other news, not having my PC for several weeks has got me determined to put it to better use now that I have it back. I feel like the world could use as many quality custom charters as it can get, so I'm starting to try my hand at making customs of my own!

 

A few questions for anyone who might have the answers:

 

1. What's the method for making a song that uses a capo?

2. If you want to chart a song that doesn't have Guitar Pro tabs available, is there any more efficient ways than dropping notes one at a time in EoF? I could pirate Guitar Pro, I guess, but I feel like there must be a free program you can make tabs in...

I don't think that song is difficult enough for 10 points, I think it should be 9. Don't have time learning song a lot as I like (70-80 plays by a song), so don't expect me to show crazy scores.

When I saw the song I thought I was going to enjoy this one.  In reality though, it's way too fast for me at my level, I'm comfortable playing it at 85%, struggle at 90% and am totally lost at 100%.

 

We're here to improve though and so I'll keep going at it  :) .

 

Just as a marker though and to give at least a target to beat, first score is -

 

Beginner Lead - 63.28%  (played on score attack easy, but I don't think that's an issue as there's no DD)

Adv: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=591272845 Another trip down memory lane, I have Somewhere in Time on  cassette kicking about the house. I also had an enormous A0 sized poster of the album cover on my wall that I'd obtained from a friend by giving him a painting I'd done of Guns and Roses Greatest hits album cover... it was pretty good, good enough to get the awesome poster :D 

 

I attempted MC but, feck that.

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.

@@Gamut - For tracks that use a capo, if it's set in the tab, it should import into EoF. Otherwise, you can go to Track->Pro Guitar->Set Capo and put it in.

 

For writing out a song that doesn't have a GP, I feel like doing it in a GP editor (I use TuxGuitar) is better than doing it in EoF. Some things in EoF are a bit easier (chords that are repeated a lot in a measure, getting slides right), but the fact that you can see the whole song at a glance in a tab makes it easier to do copy/pastes and things like that, and most songs will require lots of copy/pasting.

 

For syncing, mostly what @ says. Waveform view is OK, but spectrogram view is better because you can still find drum beats and such even when the audio is close to maxed out and the waveform doesn't have obvious peaks (more common in more recent music, especially with crazy drums). I don't use the metronome or claps too often (metronome's not as useful in x/8 or y/16 time signatures, claps aren't too useful for fast things with lots of 16th notes, and most "normal" stuff I can handle pretty easily without them), but I do slow things down to 50% if I'm having trouble finding anything in the audio or spectrogram to latch on to.

 

Also, if you can get the "obvious" sync points (things like pauses, transitions between quieter and louder parts, transitions between clean and distorted guitars, start and end of solo, beginning of chorus) done before doing finer stuff, it can save a lot of time if you expect the song to be hard to sync.

 

Now for playing some things.

I must take time off from authoring to play this.

 

As usual my first score is always cold with no practice. Which sadly is about 5% less than my best so far.... Freebird or Lostbird I think Lostbird is more accurate.  But nonetheless, maturity means you are not afraid to display your ineptness to the world so here goes....

@@MaZtoR, everytime I see your avatar, it is tiny enough that there is a great resemblance and I always think I am reading a post from Gannichus from Spartacus (one of the main super protagonists). I love that show!

Thanks for the tips, @ and @@albatross213 ! TuxGuitar is exactly the sort of thing I was looking for, now I can fix these crummy tabs a little easier. I hadn't even considered capo would be hiding under Pro Guitar, I figured that was Rock Band stuff. That'll let me start on some easier stuff to make tabs for.

 

I managed to beatmap a 7 minute Machinae Supremacy song that switched BPM for chorus and verse, only to find out that the tab charted triplets as eighths and had a BPM 66% faster than the actual song... argh. :weary:

 

Anyway, songs!

New Iron Maiden song to me. I love sightreading Iron Maiden songs because half the time they play their riff slowly, and then pace up the tempo after you get the hang of it. Very courteous of them to make their material so learnable!

 

It's not my favourite Iron Maiden tune, but it's okay. I mean, it's good, but it's okay in terms of Iron Maiden tunes. :P

Ahh yes, Blackened. Well familiarised with this one thanks to Rock Band - this was my first blast beat. I mostly drummed this, but occasionally while drunk with friends I'd end up on guitar, and evidently I've still got some of the muscle memory kicking around.
