The Go-Go's bass path needed any fixes notewise, so I just repaired the chart and custom for this weeks CS.

Also the reamstered bugs (100% and Chord repeating issue) are fixed with the v1.1 I've posted at the comments at the record page.

Look for my link if you want to play a clean version.

 

The Song Selection List desperately needs more entries. Everyone can put in up to 4 songs (incl GOG). Try to fill in difficult levels as you can judge. Every song should have RR, one guitar path and bass if the song contains it in the audio.

Hard week.  Or i just suck.

I agree, it's really hard week for Int and Adv, maybe I've underrated them

just played Beg-Int-Adv

 

http://up.picr.de/28300269gu.jpg

Beg - this one goes shortly out of sync a bit at the arpeggios, apart from that it's easily 100%able, so that dif 2 is ok

 

http://up.picr.de/28300315hk.jpg

Int - It's a quite fun track, not 100% charted but good enough I think. But it's harder than 5, more 6 or 6-7, so this should be the Advanced

 

http://up.picr.de/28300385kl.jpg

Adv - also underrated this one, 6 is definitely not enough. I would rate it maybe 2 points higher. Then this would be the MC.

 

My suggestion is to choose another Int for Lead, remove the Led Zeppelin track from this week and put it to the SSL for another week (we need good MC songs, but Int as well). A good Intermediate for this week would be Blink 182 - Bored To Death chosen by hughmonty with Lead 4, just saw the playthrough vid, looked good. 

 

So should we switch?

I am very tired today:

I just spent the last hour sifting through my CDLCs to find other D Standard songs.  I may just play these songs, since I haven't played them for a while or I may spend the rest of the afternoon looking into how to get the Song Manager working on Mac... or then again I may just fall asleep.  :lol:

RedRedWine has wrong chords at the wrong parts, and if I'd correct it the dif would be beginner :P

after getting tired of testing I choose a song from week 43.... completely reworked:

all paths resynced, techs improved, notes added and the rhythm path has more and completely new parts:

Fishbone - AIDS & Armageddon

Lead 4

Rhythm 4 

Bass 3

Bass was hard to rate, because the whole song is very easy, 2 or maybe 1, but in the end there are a few bars much harder, about level 7, but it's a small part, maybe 15-20 sec of 6 min.

Guess what I did this afternoon:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B49Qq-EFnmrKTkV4eGtxUXU5N1k/view?usp=sharing

 

And since I couldn't be bothered to downtune while it was a Championship song, I thought I'd give it a go now that I am in D Standard:

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

 

Nice tune.  I immediately thought it was a Buckethead(25%)/Volbeat(75%) mix. 

 

I have of course also been playing a whole load of Volbeat, Ghost and Graveyard.  None of whom I'd heard of before the Championship. :D

Sorry 'bout this.  As you know, I don't really play guitar, although "Songbird" has me tempted this week (and I don't even like Oasis).

I rushed through Our Lips are Sealed and Slow Down on bass to start work on the Zeppelin track, only to find it no longer necessary.  No worries - now I get to play some Fishbone.

 

Our Lips are Sealed ~ 99%

 

Slow Down ~ 99%

Slow down:  99.54 on Master. Aiming for 100: http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/172663625289082475/E2F2C0A15A4816B1D824E660D0B4063023EE97C1/

 

I sorta preferred Goliath, and I'm a bit surprised it was considered advanced.

 

Would the two songs I added to the selection list (Dani California and Dazed and Confused) be considered as advanced, then?

and the Maboroshi bass

http://up.picr.de/28312580lp.jpg

 

the only difficulty is the speed. It's always the same, one riff I'd split into 4 phrases. The most likely misses to get are in the 3dr phrase at the jump from E7 to E3!

a little suggestion to make a bass players life easier

that's like it's charted

http://up.picr.de/28312702mo.png

 

could be optimized, just play it like this

http://up.picr.de/28312705aq.png

and 100% will be no problem

@@MaZtoR that's a great improvement

I guess it's not only caused by a better version of the cdlc :)
