Oh boy. MC will be interesting this week. I'm interested to see how people handle the guitars. Not sure how much time I'll have to learn the guitars, but I hope I can find a few hours to sink into it.

Are we going to have Di Capo this week?

 

I decided to try for the first time that challenge this week but I don't see anymore, maybe this is not every week.

 

Thanks :)

I may have practiced this some in the process of making it:

Also, why does it say fingered? When I look in learn a song, it says picked (as it should be, hopefully obviously, and as I've checked it in the toolkit), but in score attack (both before and after) it says fingered. I think I also noticed this in the screenshots from last week, where I thought people might have other versions because it said fingered before I realized we were both in the same leaderboard and mine also said fingered after score attack.

 

Anyway, I noticed that the E std version somehow got a DLC name of only "Vektor" so to ward off potential problems I replaced it in the download folder with a more unique DLC name.

 

Lastly, here's my sightread of rhythm:

@@albatross213 to clarify - you can have both E and F version downloaded? Or they're killing each other?

@@Mortalo - They have different "DLC Key" names and should coexist (and do for me in Rocksmith).

 

I usually play the E versions since I have heavy-ish strings on my guitar and bass and don't want to mess with my strings or neck too much. The F version is there because that's how they actually play, but it's probably only really useful for people with tuning pedals or hardcore fans of the band, because there's not much other than Vektor that you can play in that tuning.

I took a break last week so i couldn't play Nothing Else Matters!

So here i am! And damn...this song is really really hard

The Scroll Speed was fast, the chords were a goddamn challenge, the arpeggios were way too fast, but this is a nice challenge! http://i.imgur.com/e6hrX6b.jpg

Love the beginner song, I tried to learn this with my Dad.....we were both shit but i love the song.... so this week is gonna be great.

If i can get 98 on Apache i'll be happy on rhythm , bass and lead.

and ill have a go at Roxette as well, hopefully i'll get a good score on bass at least.

And after some practice:

At this point I think the only thing that's out of my league with practice is the stuff under the clean part of the solo, where the picking pattern seems pretty random to me. Might look at the tab and break that down out of the game. Otherwise, things are fast, chords are mostly unusual, and your fingers are flying, but I can at least imagine myself playing it.

 

Also, the clean tone could probably use replacing, and maybe some of the others. @@Nacholede (or others), do you have any recommendations for that?

 

And a go on lead:

http://i.imgur.com/w7QcO5Z.jpg

A few places where I mess up on things where I'm used to what's on the rhythm path (and/or haven't practiced the lead one, or if I have not nearly as much). Solo's tough but it should be something I can improve significantly on with enough practice.

 

I obviously screwed up an FHP placement in the solo, I'll fix that soon. Also not sure whether the harmonic in the solo should be natural or pinch. Might also be a few more places I add handshapes or arpeggios (not just in the solo).

 

For rhythm I think I also want to add palm mutes and change the later instances of the "chorus" riff which are different from the earlier ones.

The clean tone was a bit loud, i can help you with it!

Added an update version of Tetrastructural Minds to the download folder. I'll wait for feedback before updating the record and making it official.

 

Clean tone was changed, I think it fits a little better and is less overpowering, but I'm still not entirely happy with it, so help is still welcome.

 

The riff after the clean section (it comes one time earlier in the song, but I guess that's the easiest way to identify it) I changed the slide a little bit to be more like how they play it and not just slide to some awkward place in the middle of the transition.

 

Also added a decent number of handshapes throughout the song. Fixed the bad FHP (where I guess I typed "1" instead of "11"), changed the harmonic to a pinch since it seems to get bent a little, and a few other miscellaneous fixes.

 

Lastly, made some progress on lead when testing it:

I see now that bass won't count since i forgot to press "F12" before "Enter" :(http://i1175.photobucket.com/albums/r632/Amund_Filseth/20160327174957_1_zpskpe4l2de.jpghttp://i1175.photobucket.com/albums/r632/Amund_Filseth/20160327180539_1_zpsgzvjho0g.jpghttp://i1175.photobucket.com/albums/r632/Amund_Filseth/20160327175852_1_zpskxmxlthn.jpg

I already had Apache on the Mac so i'd had a few goes at it a while ago but gave up as it was different to the one i learnt, so glad it is in the Championship because it gives me a chance to really nail it.ds7uselcccn65fi6g.jpgbut not just yet  :rolleyes:

 

i never really played the rhythm so thats a whole new challenge.......and pretty hard for the BC

 

 

The Rosette song i picked up pretty easily on bass.

 

fupgjy0ppu8nyp86g.jpgand i think i'll get a reasonable score on the Catamenia song, on Bass so long as i can get to the end before my fingers drop off......

Easy enough:

I'd agree with (1).

 

I haven't tried the inter, because I don't want to retune my only bass here at the moment.

 

So… ahem...

 

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

 

Yep, I'd say (4).

 

Looks like I'm going to be doing some Blues Comping this week… unless you change the advanced bass song, that is. :D
