Updates for Wings and Scandal lead

Definitely a challenging intermediate song.

Still some work to do on both, but focusing on Megadeth for the next while.

I liked both songs, already knew Band on the Run. Now Shunkan Sentimental was very very fun to play, is one of those song I wouldn't have the album but when it comes to playing it, well that's an enti

Meh.   http://i.imgur.com/y6sUDkd.jpg   I've got a feeling this is heading towards master difficulty.

Last time missed one note, this time I did it good. 100% :)  

@@then3verend - And Carcass, right? Honestly nowadays I'd be more excited about seeing them than Slayer...

 

Anyway, I had a go at making some modifications to Architecture, with download link here.

 

The modifications are roughly:

-Sync modified somewhat.

-Increased scroll speed a bit.

-On bass, I added a few notes from before the main riff, made the As in the "machine gun" riff open, made the chorus steady eighths (which I'm pretty sure I'm hearing correctly), and shifted a few notes around the fretboard.

-On guitar, made the remaining As in the "machine gun" riff open, changed the pitch slide chord to just another normal fretted chord, and made some small changes to the solo.

 

Bass scores on this one might be lower than in the other version, so if this one becomes adopted it might make sense to invalidate the score from my previous 100% run. 

 

Here's an MM run for kicks:

And a small improvement on lead:

@@albatross213 Yup, and honestly, Carcass was...meh

 

I did firmly believe Testament was going to steal the show, they had so much energy, very tight, and very very heavy.

 

But man, Slayer had a one of a kind show, Tom sounded like he dialed 20 years back, Gary had a lot of youthful energy, and other than Angel of Death, you couldn't tell it was Paul, I doubt they'll play that good on this tour again.

 

Side note: I suddenly want a Dave Band, Grohl on Vocals, Mustaine on Guitar, Ellefson(Dave-Id, he's the kool kid) and Lombardo on drums. Mixed by Matthews.

 

Edit I'm imagining an acoustic laid back version of Holy Wars and it is awesome

@@then3verend - I'm kind of surprised both that Carcass was lackluster and Slayer was awesome. Nice to know that Slayer can still put on a show, though.

 

Anyway, I could go for a "Mike/Michael" band. Probably would be 

Drums - Mike Portnoy (or Mangini)

Guitar - Michael Romeo

Bass - Hmm, could go with LePond (also of Symphony X), Manring, or Flea. Any of those would be kind of interesting.

Vocals - I guess Mike Patton?

Just a reminder, please write any comments about cdlc quality on the cdlc page. It's much easier for the charters to see rather than combing 70 posts about scores and what not.

 

Okay, so I've received a couple of complaints about some regular championship members not following this reminder, now It's a warning. In addition, I will hide any links to edited CDLC; either work with the creator to make a new update, or post the new update yourself in Ignition. Anyone who violates this is in violation of Site Rule 1

@@then3verend - I know I'm one of the violators here, but I think you're going overboard here, at least this week (and I'm seriously unclear on how this relates to Site Rule 1. Douchebaggery, maybe?). This week the two songs that have had discussions about their quality and have had updates posted have been songs that were made by active members of the Championship, and were collaborations.

 

And honestly, for myself I'd rather have discussion about any things that might need change on my songs to occur here rather than on the record page so we can have a discussion with multiple people who are playing the song seriously about what changes need to be made, and whether everyone's in agreement, without giving all of the people who follow the record umpteen notifications.

 

For songs by people who aren't in the Championship, I agree that we should post onto their record pages, but even then I think there should be some allowance (maybe a day?) for discussion on here so that we can come to a consensus if people's opinions on the changes isn't unanimous. I bet people would get really annoyed at me if I posted a comment on their record pages every time I noticed something off when playing something in the Championship, especially if I'm playing all three paths.

I have to agree with Albatross here! What he is doing is providing constructive feedback about the custom and modyfing it! This doesn't break any kind of rule, and as he said, it is much better to provide feedback here so we can discuss about the CDLC quality and how to improve it, and not in the record page. 

So it is pointless to hide all of the feedback, i fully disagree

I'm hiding edited CDLC links, happens too many times where a cdlc gets edited and uploaded here and the record isnt updated. These threads aren't ignition. Hurts creators and creates an inclusive community, no exceptions.

 

Many nice scores on all songs :)

I still disagree with that, is not spam and helps the people playing the song know what was modified, and send suggestions to improve the CDLC. We can use this as an advantage to improve

@@then3verend - Related to what I said before, while I have not been good about sending updates to people in the past (though some of them have been ignored, which may be related to why I often don't bother), I still think we should have a "trial period" for these so charters don't have to spam updates based on our most recent whims.

 

I'm all for having some sort of standard procedure enacted for how feedback progresses from the championship to people's record pages/updates (and using this as a catalyst to brainstorm ideas for a good way to do this would be a great idea), but unilaterally shutting down any comments and potential updates that might need further tweaking seems rather counterproductive.

 

P.S. If you want to be consistent, you haven't removed Motive's link from this post, or this post. They haven't been posted to ignition either. Or this one where Metalocalypse quotes Motive.

Just one comment as things seem to get mixed up.

 

1) discussion about what can be improved are benificial to everyone and good for any cdlc and imo belongs right here

 

2) a cdlc that has been perfected and doesn´t make it to an official update on the songs page and thus not to ignition is a damn pitty.

We should work against that together.

I fail to see how privately shared edited versions of CDLC constitutes douchebaggery.

 

These CDLC are being objectively made more accurate. It's not like anyone is falsely taking credit for someone else's work, they're just improving upon it.  Furthermore, these versions are only being shared amongst a small crowd of 20ish people.

 

To hide these versions is both actively forcing us to play inferior versions of a notechart, and mildly insulting to the people who put effort into improving these CDLC for the sake of good competition. 

 

If someone gave me an improved version of one of my CDLC, I would be thankful - I wouldn't censor it.

Here's a start on the MC. Now this is the era of Megadeth that I dig. Never really heard this one before, but I'm grooving on it.

@@Gamut The thing is some author are unaware of the modification to their own chart or the people that downloaded the CDLC are unaware of those update too and miss those improvement. We are trying to find a good compromise but for now things are getting a bit out of hand and we are talking about it with mods and admin.

 

For now we are just asking that if you make modification you share those on the CDLC page too and we think it isn't that much too ask :)

Well I had a good night last night, the misses went out and left me and Jack Daniels to concentrate on Blink 182 (after a quick look at the Shunkan video, in case I missed anything the first time)

As a result I am now in the 90+% Lead & Rhythm , which I would never have expected after the first XXX Game over play through and 100% on Bass which has boosted my confidence no end as I wouldn't even have attempted this a few weeks ago.

Thanks Guys and Girls

For me, CS good place for discussion about improving cdlc (if charter too participant), not see nothing bad there.

Which exactly rules of CF, discussion there do break? I not see this point in rules. If you count how spamming, so organizers by himself can make decision what is spam on CS.  

 

If say about my cdlc Scandal, i yet not updated ignition, bcs of there yet need some tweaks in cdlc, after finished CS ( and implemented teaks) i will update my page on ignition. I yet not tested himself enough this cdlc, you can not forced me update my page of ignition with cdlc, when i not ready.

Hi guys.

 

I think you've updated this score on the Lead instead of the Rhythm.

 

Cheers :)

ok, I'll fix it. If your screenshots would also show the path symbol with red, green or blue guitar this won't happen so easily ;)

Another challenging song-selection makes me shout:

 

TO KEEP THE COMPETITION GOING AT THAT LEVEL (feel free to) FILL IN UP TO 4 SONGS of yor choice INTO

-= SONG SELECTION LIST =-

(... we especially need stuff for the really tough guys ...)

AND PLEASE SPEND A FEW MINUTES ON PLAYTHROUGHS  TO RATE THE PATHs OF THE ENTERED SONGS THAT HAVE NO RATING YET!

 

THANK YOU!

 

 

P.S: Song needs to meet our criteria:

RR must be working, has got to have a custom tone, at least one guitar and a bassline; if it is a  t r u e  guitar only track combine it with a true bass only track.
