I'm shaking right now, my heart almost exploded in the final notes. Man! this was a hard beginner song, but now the diamond is mine B)  

Its my first participation, i hope i did all right Lead path - Advanced   http://i.imgur.com/jzuLGBn.jpg

Well, here's my "sightread" for the MC bass song. I'd played it once before when I released it and RRed the first difficult riff, so it's not really a true sightread.

Might have over-rated the difficulty on this a bit since there's "only" two hard parts, but it is all non-legato 16th notes at a fast tempo so it might be harder to improve on than I'd expect at this point (and also really hard to play cleanly, though Rocksmith won't really care about that).

 

I probably also overrated the rhythm path's difficulty as I forgot exactly how much of the hard stuff it had. It's only the first two hard riffs of the lead path, so it's certainly lower than a 9. Not sure exactly what to rate it because of the length, but it probably should be somewhere between 7 and 8.

 

I also played lead and I think my sightread was 71%, though I didn't take a screenshot. The second half (after the tapping section) is the same riff in different positions, so shouldn't be too bad to learn (and should help get my fingers better used to the fret spacing in different parts of the neck).

Don't worry @@albatross213, you didn't overrated it. It is very fast and additionally on bass it uses frets in 5 fret distance which makes it even more difficult.

It's very fun song, something that could be used as a melody in a game :)

Here's my start for the week - Sight reads on bass for Wild Flower and I Wanna Rock

 

I won't bother making second passes of either of these and will move on to the advanced track.

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.

What a difference a week makes... :(

 

Does anyone else find Madonna's fingering less than optimal?

 

 

Try this... play the main riff arpegios ( C#m, B, C#m, C#m) as tabbed, but for the other bits, play the G# on the D string 6th fret instead of G string 1st fret.  That turns a lot of the moving up and down the neck into tighter root-5th patterns.  You can keep your fretting hand in the same shape and just move it around like playing barre chords.

 

I've spent an hour in RR at speeds under 90% playing with fingerings and this one works best for me.  My accuracy is pretty good at those speeds - about ten misses for the entire song, but at full speed, I only get 91% accuracy.  So tomorrow, I'll head back to RR for more practice at 90% speed.

I'm really glad to have a second song in a championship (first on was "Hella Good"). In the post there's a video of my lead playthough. Here is:



In case is necessary, i put the final capture of my performance:

I think is an intermediate song, there are some chord changes and also licks that a beginner player can't dominate easily. Beside that, hope everyone have fun with this custom, cause i've really enjoy it.

I've also had problems before with this Madonna thong.  :wacko:

 

I'll try it again tonight though.  :blink:

 

On another note, I've just had a notification that I got second place in Advanced last week.  Surely that should have been third?
