Rocksmith 2014 Championship Week 175

Recommended Posts

I've just cut a new nut for my old Yamaha RBX 170.  It's been sat for the last year with a cracked nut, because I put heavy gauge strings on without widening the nut slots first.  The reason it's taken me so long to cut a new one, is that I saw the Yamaha nut and though "I've got no chance of making anything like that."  But then I looked at the nut on my Peavey, and just thought "What the hell?  I can do that" and I just got my files out and got on with it. :D

 

It looks, and plays good, so far.  I'll have to wait for the glue to set before I complete the set-up.  But D Standard/C Standard - here I come!

 

I think the next thing to do is put a decent nut on the Peavey...  :lol:

Monster Truck... not sure if this is actually my best score since I took this shot. Played it a few times as it's one me and my pal's are rehearsing at the moment. Cool tune :)

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.

There are a couple of awkward little bits to this song, but I really like it.  It took a fair effort to beat @@Fraggle Baggle's score, I was stuck on 98% for a while, but then it all fell into place.  :D

Steam has added for different people a temporary ban for uploading screenshots of customs - the days accumulate depending on the number of posted screenshots. Some have deleted all their uploads - I've not heard that they've closed an account, but I would not test it out.

That sounds disturbing for a lot of folks here.

I am trying.

 

You never know.  I just might crack 99.75(?) on Aria.  I've got a bit of practicing to do on it yet though, and not just that widdley bit at the beginning.  :lol:

There's a custom with the song title "Ritual" - enjoyed playing it in case you want to try another one from them.

 

This is a Plum-Fun custom :D

 

 

Why don´t you put it into Song Selection List. rate the 3 paths, and in few weeks - we all enjoy it ;)

Yup, i think @@Mortalo got banned for a couple of days for a Led Zep screener or something once!!!!

 

Fast easy stringless pic upload for example: picr.de - you instantly get the line for the post

There are loads of services like that by now, no need for steam here

Okay.  I said no more spam, but @@JuneBeatle80 wanted pics, so nuts...

 

The Peavey, nice bass, bit of a shitty nut:

It looks like an afterthought that's someone's cut straight, too low and sloppy:

The Yamaha, and the nut that was.  I glued it back together as a template:

The new nut may be a little high, but it's not uncomfortable to play.  It's a lot thicker, front to back than the original, but with the heavier strings, I don't think that's a bad thing.  I had to adjust the intonation on the E string, but that was it.

 

Edit:

 

I forgot the obligatory bass picture:

It's only a cheapy, but it's my first and I still love it.

Might have to pb my screenies in that case @@papillon I'd heard of that happening before but I'm really lazy about linking to other hosts :) If I post any more shots I'll use a different host from now on :) Chars!

BEG Lead 92% 44 streak.  Still seems like a  bad try somehow.

 

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=872180179

INT Rhythm 91% 37 streak.    Will have to try again later this week.

 

It's funny, I had looked up that Monster Truck song earlier and been starting to grind the fill parts at like... 60% speed.  Good Redneck Rock.

I'll check it out later - I thought that the Ritual has already been played here. Is there a list of played songs?
