well bass diff are about (3), 6-6-6

 

so the order of int-adv -mc  is rather subjective.

 

My order is -

- Muse basically one pattern not hard to learn - a true int bass line

- Gloryhammer - relatively easy metal bassline, that does require advanced endurance

- Alestorm - it´s C Std and its a lil mharder than the Unicorn song

 

open for discussion o.c.

Anyone else having trouble with RR in the Alestorm song? Twice it's frozen when I've tried to advance it past the seventh section (on bass).

Here are my views on the bass songs.

 

Gloryhammer: pretty easy. Fast gallops which I managed with my fingers, but which I'd guess are picked (and a lot easier picked). A few quick runs of different notes, but only a couple of patterns and not too bad.

 

Alestorm: A little trickier, with a decent amount of fretboard movement, string switching and such. Also, the tuning isn't the most approachable, so better for a higher difficulty (advanced or MC). Still have the RR issue on bass, though.

 

Muse: There's basically only one hard riff, yes, but parts of it have pretty awkward fingerings and it's totally f'ing exhausting. Kind of like Act Like You Know, in that it's a lot harder to play than it looks. My choice for MC by a long shot.

I would make the argument Alestorm is harder...
Lower tuning, more intricate sections, solos are similar to Gloryhammer, Most of the scores for unicorn will be the chuggy bits, so the winner will win by a fraction of a percent

I'll take a look at the RR issue in the morning. Let me know if there are any other issues with either song.

So, for bass diff we need more adv/mc players input, please.

 

Should it be changed to gloryhammer(int) - alestorm(adv) - muse (mc) or not

 

Same for lead - should adv and mc track be switched.

 

Thx

Whale oil beef hooked! I have some scores... I'm not too excited about it though, they're not particularly complicated to play from the melody perspective... I quite like The Flipside... New Born I've had in my files for aaages but never got round to playing it so I'm going to concentrate on that this week so no score for that just yet, want to dedicate my practice after dinner to that. I'll plonk another MC attempt later in the week once my fat bass has got used to being down tuned for a couple of days.

 

 

Beginner: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=607720513 Moloko reminds me so much of Portis Head...The track Glory Box particularly just the style of singing is very reminiscent... brought back lots of memories of Glastonbury 1998 where I spent the weekend drunk on homemade plum cider and covered in mud :D I'd say about a 2 rating but the timing is a little kooky so possibly a 3. Not your casual rhythm for bass.

 

Advanced: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=607720634 ... Yeah, I can dig why they're a fun band to get into, bass is a bit boring but, meaty.. 3.

 

MC: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=607720715 I should improve on this later in the week, very straight forward, nothing squiggly, fun, makes me want to wear an eyepatch if I do a video :) 5.

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.

Hello everyone!

I have tried emulated bass.

The result:

http://i.imgur.com/ZvoW3s1.jpg

 

Unfortunately the other songs are not in standard tuning. I will not drop my strings. I'm afraid I will not able to return 'em to E back. My strings are old and can break any time.

And I don't have a capo. Guess I should to buy it finally.

 

And lead

I couldn't complete the Muse song, and do think it's more difficult that the Gloryhammer, but then I am still hung over from yesterday, and I have a plaster on my finger from when I was trying to cook my tea whilst I was drunk...

Had a great day in the mountains yesterday, although my arms are quite stiff today from climbing. Still managed to have a bash at all this weeks songs.

 

Moloko - I only know this band from the god awful 'Sing it Back' song that was all over the radio in the late 90s (99 maybe? can't remember for sure). I was pleasantly surprised by how good this track is.

http://s8.postimg.org/l31n1gvf9/moloko_flipside_bass.png

 

Muse - this one's been on my Must Learn list for ages, tried a few times in the past but never really got anywhere. 

Some tricky chord shapes and the solo to be learned. 

 

http://s22.postimg.org/hdeldix6p/muse_new_born_lead.png

 

Gloryhammer - what could be more metal than undead unicorns ?!?

Alestorm - another new song, but a definite highlight of the week for me. I'll be spending more of my time on this, but no bass due to the low tuning.

Played through the higher difficulty guitar songs.

 

Alestorm:

Gloryhammer:

Alestorm definitely has harder stuff outside of the leads (which @@fiddlesticks's screenshots show). Hard for me to say exactly how the solos compare without practicing them more, but I definitely wouldn't disagree with it being made MC rather than Gloryhammer (though I'm worried @@TrbInTrbIn will have a coronary if it gets changed). Either order works for me.
