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.

One of my customs got picked! Feels great, man.

 

Heavenly is a power metal outfit from France that has some killer guitarists. If you enjoy Lust for Life, I definitely recommend checking out the album - it's about a vampire who denies his hungers for human blood and instead goes on a journey to kill the Master vampire who afflicted him and reclaim his soul.

 

Most of the song is straightforward enough for GOG participants, but those neoclassical solos are not playable by mere mortals...

You did a really good job with the charting of the notes, man!

 

I'll be making a video on the song as an entry probably tomorrow, if I can reach 99%, my current best is 97.43%.

 

The only difficult part for me is that one sweeping arpeggio in the middle of the song. I'm not good at sweeping, as I've never practiced it. Instead what I do is multi-string tapping, that way I can play it, and it's fun doing it too.

that's good to calm down

Excellent song selections this week.  Played three songs I had never heard before.  Liked all three and they were a lot of fun to play.

 

Jumped into advanced lead for the first time.

http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/244713172442056402/0B2D6FF54899914C3406C347A9E2DEF7422F6746/

Did better than I expected.

 

Then I started out with the intermediate lead since I TECHNICALLY didn't hit my 3rd week in a row of >97% (Lousy 2 stinking minutes!!!)  :)

http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/244713172442055326/DD27DCA0A4583386E1260305F6ED604D6BB06966/

 

Then I thought I'd have a go at the advanced song anyway....

http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/244713172442053988/E7CD667391FBAE224C132C35F6C37C34C5793CB4/

and somehow did better than I did on intermediate.

 

Then there was the MC bass song.

http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/244713172442052715/2AADAEEE94B35BA7BB4076E31D173DD4706E9E07/

Either my skills have improved a lot in the past couple weeks or this song is a bit easy for master class.

This is a really solid week. Enjoying all of these picks. Good music, challenging riffs for every class I've played.

Can't go wrong with the D. Lead gets snubbed during the riff, I found myself jamming on the rhythm because it was cooler.

First listen for me, but meets my high expectations for Judas Priest from this period. This one's all over the fretboard!

And naturally, I'm very familiar with my pick. Lust for Life is my favourite Heavenly track, and it's probably the custom I've put the most work into out of all of them. I keep meaning to get back into Custom Authoring and never doing it. Maybe this is a good excuse for me to finish the bass track...

 

I've done 91% on Lust for Life before, I just have to do that Practice The Solos thing and I should be able to manage 95% by next week's end.

God of Guitar 97.63%

 

I can do better I swear! I'm going for the diamond pick! I slip up at the end of the last solo. Those trills, I always miss it, and it brings my multiplier below to 25x, but I don't want it to ever go below 50x..

I really do think beginner and intermediate bass songs should be switched...

maybe you're right, I did not had time enough to play them all completely, only checked all songs every path for their quality and ballpark estimate for difficulties. What do you think about the difficulties of beginner and intermediate?

God of Guitar 98.22% 

 

I am done with this song, unless someone gets a higher %, I'm not trying anymore, I'm fine with this.

 

I made a video! Check out that tapped arpeggio at 2:48, this is the one and only lucky time for me that it sounded perfect!

@@JokerTheAnarchist, well done :)

You play the same Jackson Explorer than my son  :D

 

edit - I did a tiny update on the Fenix... main rhythm needed one chord to be changed (during 1st breakdown), but I left it at version 1.0.
