I didn't play the 'tallica, 'cos I've just tuned my bass back up (d'oh!):

I did surprisingly well on this, considering that last time I played it I got 85%:

And this, I like it very much (never heard it before):

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B49Qq-EFnmrKYXcwejVIUF9Xbzg/view?usp=sharing

 

Rocksmith had the nerve to level me down on my first go, so I had to play it again, and again, and again. :)

 

I've lost out on first place twice in a row now on streak.  This week I predict that I'm going to lose in a 100% score battle...

Bass is really fun. And as I'm in B, I'm going to stay there and practice it.

 

Running Free is from Iron Maiden's 1st album. I really love their stuff with Di'Anno, but more because of that unpolished frenzy on guitars :D

I start with the monkey guitars

http://up.picr.de/24580192jo.jpg

 

http://up.picr.de/24580196ss.jpg

 

both guitars have one false and repeating chord. Starting in the Intro, those changes are here D5 F#5 D5, D5 F#5 D5.

If you just listen, without playing!, you'd hear D5 F#5 C#5, D5 F#5 C#5. The guitar tones are very low (and for my taste too plain).

@ - It looks like that also happens on the bass, so you might want to edit your post in the record thread to reflect that as well.

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.

Played DT so I can relay my advice for @@Nacholede -

 

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

 

Definitely missed the green laser beams of imperfectly charted 5-string bass charts (quick check in EoF - select all notes, then press the up arrow on the keyboard to move notes up a string. If they can't move, you have notes somewhere on the highest string, which is bad if you've imported a 5 or 6 string bass tab and want to export it as a bass chart), might have had one or two others.

 

A few other suggestions:

  • MORE SECTIONS FOR THE SOLO!!!!!!!! I didn't even play it on guitar yet, but come on, a minute long section is just ridiculous. I usually do ~every 4 measures. Yeah, it's harder to pass on SA hard, but there's a version without DD and you can actually practice it somewhat effectively. Remember our complaints about Countdown to Extinction's chorus? This is way more annoying.
  • Poor fretboard logic.  Yeah, you're putting a 5-string bass chart into 4 strings, so you have to make some compromises, but usually you can find somewhere (A, D, G notes, brief pauses, etc.) to incorporate shifts in to accomodate the new notes, rather than just putting them 7 frets above your current fret hand position. I mean, you can play it as a sweep-tapping arpeggio, but that's a ridiculously specialized technique for bass. There were also some other places that had weird fretboard logic (like play 4-6-7-9-7-6-4 on the same string rather than moving the middle note over a string.
  • It would also be nice the have the actual 5-string bass arrangement. Rhythm track's free, right?

If you want me to handle any of these, I should be able to do it. It would be easier if you have the source files, but the bass doesn't have any chords, so I could handle it by unpacking.

 

 

Edit: And Running Free too:

I'd probably rate this more as a hard 5 or a 6. There are some pretty tricky parts that require some quick shifting (and/or leaving the way the chart has you play things).

I did it a long long time ago! don't kill me  :(

You can unpack and fix all of those things, because i don't have the source files!

@@Nacholede - Uh, how were you going to "fix some issues" with it, then?

 

Also, for the source files, all that you need to keep is the notes.eof file, which should only be a couple hundred kilobytes or something like that. The audio you can get from unpacking the .psarc, and then you're ready to go without having to deal with the BS of the Rocksmith import. Getting rid of the source files so that the only updates you can do are tone updates is pretty silly.

 

I tend to keep the guitar.ogg and the .wem file too, but I get rid of all the .wavs and crap like that (and I don't have EoF set to save them anymore since toolkit can just take the .ogg and generate the .wav if necessary).

Same way, unpacking and trying to check those things, but you seem to know a lot more than me in EoF

But as i said, i did it A LONG time ago, take it easy man!

Here's my version of The Looking Glass. I put the 5-string bass on rhythm guitar, and normal bass is still on the bass path. Played both bass paths and things are pretty good. On guitar some of the chords are pretty strange (the 466044 chord especially, but the 468 and 469 chords also seem like they could be played more easily), but other than that I think things look pretty good.

 

Time signatures are also pretty out of wack because those don't import.

 

Here's my best go so far on bass.

And after learning how to play the main riff, lead:

http://i.imgur.com/5BO40oI.jpgI think I have just a bit of room for improvement on the solo.
