In this week i would really like to be a bass-only player (hmmm maybe i should be for that week - if only the guitar track wouldnt be so good too), very cool tracks from beg - mc (even those guys get what they deserve)

 

And we hope @@NoonyDeloony enjoys her lil gift. :tropical_drink: :tropical_drink: :tropical_drink:

the bass seems trickier than thought, the middle part needs some RR anyway

I practiced the solo a lot in RR but i didnt do another runhttp://oi67.tinypic.com/2w6uys8.jpg

My CDLC ! 

 

I usually release about 2 CDLC a month, because I like to take my time and make them as good as I can for the benefit of everyone interested in them ;)

Amazing... Considering the number of plays I have on that track, I have never done a video for it :D... Will have to see if I can still play it in Master Mode :D it's been a while. Cheers folks for the Birthday wishes. I'm having a lovely day :D x

Apologies for the gigantic pics but here's my claim to fame :) My best friend and I went to see Monster Truck about 2.5 years ago at a small venue in Manchester. I'd only just had my second baby boy, Bob,  was knackered and had "Guy" hair (Guy being the toothy character from kids 90's comedy, "Maid Marian and her Merry Men.") John (bassist, in glasses) and Jeremy the guitarist were really nice and I politely requested them to have our pictures taken with them :) I then promptly got home and started running every day to shed the baby weight :D Good times! Really great band to watch live in a little venue too :)... not competition related apart from the subject matter but I'm taking liberties cos it's me birthday :D xxhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v699/Moodswing/1743642_10151953007536644_634456789_n_zpsnd8z5h7z.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v699/Moodswing/1966782_10151953007521644_634899529_n_zps0e1642qk.jpg

I saw them at a large open air festival here in Toronto a few years back.  They're fun in a larger venue too.

 

I think that they're from Hamilton - about a 45 minute drive west of Toronto.

John's dad is from Sussex England :) I found out that bit of trivia after we bought him a beer. I told him I had rellies in Toronto... conversation dried up when I couldn't say where exactly as I've never visited. One day I'll go to Canada and settle there in my log cabin next to the lake with a mountainous backdrop /sigh :) I do love Canada :)

Hey, you've got rellies in Toronto and I have some in Norwich.  Wanna trade?  It would be more convenient.  It would be amuch shorter trip to not visit them anyway.

 

...back to the championship... Sweet Mountain River on bass (after half in hour in RR, as usual) = 99%.  It felt a little sloppy.I need to work on my speed.

In the Paulo Mendonca songs middlepart at all those sliding chords the note recognition is horrible, in both paths.

But don't worry, I'm actually working on a solution.... testing now

now it works fine. The slide chords before were pluck, slide down, slide up. In the new version you have to pluck again after the slide up, and all those slides are now unpitchted. Bass the same, I'm pleased with that :D Also I shiftet this fast transition in bass one octave up (heard it in the audio) and removed the deadnotes between the sliding chords. Scroll speed is a bit faster with 1.6.

Indeed the slide chords doesnt look that graceful than before, but it saves nerves

Make sure playing Version1.1 of the song and enjoy! :)

I'm a bit rusty on this it's been 6 months at least since I played Sweet Mountain River... 451st play http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=773309786

 

Might as well round off my birthday, in spite of it being 2 hours past the date, with a video playing my most played and possibly most favourite bass tunes to play   :)

@@NoonyDeloony Happy birthday, hope it was killer! :D

 

This Coheed track is cool and fairly easy. One of my favourites from one of their earlier albums.

 

Ne Obliviscaris and my Canadian Truck boys too! I am excited for this week.

It's pretty related! And even if it wasn't, who cares about off-topic in the CS thread? Certainly not I! :D

 

Monster Truck happens to be out of my hometown, of all places. I saw them for the first time this summer myself, think I even made a post about it at the time! :P I like seeing them get big - good Canadian musicians too often go unrecognised!

@@Gamut that's awesome, it is a shame that Celine Dion seems to be the most recognised Canadian in our land. I do my best to spread the word and educated my friends on Canadian rock music though (mostly Rush mind you) :) the coheed track is one of my favourites too, I will probably do a video of that one too. Very excellent choices this week. MC sounds terrifyingly difficult but I will give a punt at what sounds like an orgy of sweep arpeggios! Again, big thanks for burthdee wishes. I feel much love :D

Here are my sight-reads:

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

 

I like the int. song a lot more than the MC one. Not really my kind of music.

 

The other day, while I was looking through the files of the game, charting its unused features, I learned a new thing I wasn't aware of after 1400+ hours: pressing "-" when you have a song selected switches between LAS and SA. It's in the manual, but not in the controls at the bottom of the screen.

 

Also, have you ever opened the sort menu (on PC, hold TAB) and pressed a key (a-z) while the sort menu is open? (works when you have the song list sorted in a way that can be sought by pressing a key). Probably will be fixed in the remastered version.  :P

Excellent. That latter part I always did accidentally and couldn't figure out how I had done it heheh :D Thanks @@iminashi for clearly describing what I thought was happening by magic :)

Climbed a bit on the accuracy, not by much but its fine for now!

Most of my misses are from chord changes, cause im probably too slow even though i always get that when theres a fast song like this

Very happy that you like your gift @@NoonyDeloony ^_^ I remembered that you mentioned that song as most played in one topic more then two years ago. You had like, what, 200+ plays already on it back then? :lol:

 

I was yesterday on my younger cousins (only younger cousin :P ) wedding, I'll share more after I'll comeback from 2nd day of celebrating :D
