So what do we have?

 

A real fine selection - all except the Moore song unknown to me before RNG.

 

Deftones - Xerces a real beginner tune on all paths, each groovy and great to play

Krakatit - Nachbarschaft  monsignore @fripponomic and his old band, so great - it means "Neighbourhood"

Tsuneo Imahori - H.T. tricky, for the rhythm this and

Gary Moore - Still Got The Blues (LIVE VERSION) both are equally straight 7s in diff, so i put H.T. adv for it is a lot shorter.

 

Have fun!

 

and:

 

PLEASE FILL SONG SELECTION LIST!!!!!

It really needs YOU!!!!

 

We try to pick songs from active players first - so put a tune of your choice in, fill in diffs and you will most probably get it in the next few weeks!!!

 

Rock!

I FINALLY GOT MY ADVANCE PICK?!

 

*world explodes*

 

This song's a big deal for me. Let me tell you about it.

 

 

H.T. is the opening theme for Trigun, the first anime I ever watched to completion and one of my favourites to this day. It's a sci-fi Western about a gunman named Vash the Stampede with a massive bounty on his head. Everyone is convinced Vash is a cold-blooded killer, but in actuality, he's quite nonviolent and caring, if a little bit wacky. The entire soundtrack to this anime is mindblowing - a fusion of aggressive guitars and country.

 

The lead chart to this song is a BLAST. Simplistic blues scales, yes - but they take a lot of speed and precision to pull off properly! Nice and short, too, so a little practice will give you a lot of percents. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

Do we really have to learn this "nachbarschaftstracl" ? Grrr i dont know if i am in for it :D

haha, it's a funny song with a funny baseline.... everything in this song is based on that baseline i wrote, most improvised, especially the lyrics :D  it is more a greeting list that song, the last track before the hidden track :lol:

It was the first album, and this song is very straight compared to others on that album. There is one named München maybe more interesting for you  :lol: ,very funny and weird lyrics, more poems (every song except Nachbarschaft), but this song is played only with drums, accordion and mouth tuba. Another one, Kotzender Frohsinn (spewing glee), is recorded backwards except drums and bass, maens drums and bass were recorded normally and for lyrics and guitar we turned the tape, good old analog recording times :D . We were very eger to try out new things that times.

I took a first run through at Still Got The Blues on bass.  I did a single re-start after a minute, but them sight read the song from end to end.  I ended up with this - 97% and 100% in the same single pass - I know I didn't get a perfect score, but I certainly did better than 97%.

 

I made a second pass in SA and scored 99.69% - that seems closer to reality.

I forgot to say, I've updated the custom and fixed the chord repeating bug, it is still version 1 but the file ends with DD now.

@@fripponomic - If you weren't a FreeBird, I'd call foul on playing your own song.  However, seeing as we have both chosen to be the rule breakers of the weekly challenge I applaud with a hearty "Take that FreeBird Police!".

 

Here's my start on your song - 98%

What indeed?

 

?

 

 

 

You said "So what do we have?".  I said "What indeed?"...

 

This I've heard before:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B49Qq-EFnmrKS3NmR1RyeGJqcVk/view?usp=sharing

I think I messed up the chords.

 

But this, I have no idea what this is!  :lol:

You know how sometimes when you've never heard a song before, but within a couple of bars you can tell which way the bass is going?  Well, not with this.  :blink:

 

I actually think the Advanced is harder than the Masterclass:

Interesting week. :)

 

Oh, I think I did give the Drop D song a go too - I don't think I'd heard it before, but I got about 99% and forgot to screenshot it.
