Very nice, this week with Krakatit we have another smash hit from one oft my old Bands of the mid 90s. Hope I find some time this week for playing. But my recordings and mixing for my next song is already complete, so the chances are not too bad. A pity that I missed the Supergroove last week.

I gots a question: how come I'm third if I have more points *and* it was in Master mode? Also is my name in red because of Master mode?

 

Thanks,

As usual, I started on the beginner tracks and worked up in difficulty.

 

Live to Ride, Ride to Live on bass = 100%

 

I'm Picky on bass tuned Drop D = 97.8%

 

I tried I'm Picky again on a bass tuned to BEAD and had a lot of note recognition issues.  Even notes on open strings that are in tune often show as misses.  Is anyone else having problems with the note recognition on the bonus track?

I just calibrated before trying again and it made a world of difference - 99.8 %

 

I think that this is required because the BEAD is set as a bonus rhythm guitar track, and would be calibrated for guitar input.

Feels so good when your song gets picked. I hope you guys like anime theme songs.

This song keeps you on your feet - there's a lot of alternate chords on the same grooves.

 

The anime it's from, Gurren Lagann, is my favourite of all time. It's about people who live in underground villages to hide from the dangerous world on the surface... until they find a robotic head, drill out, and start kicking everything's ass.

LIVE TO FLY! FLY TO LIVE! DO OR DIE!  Oh, uh - that's not what we're playing.

 

Ehhh. Song is okay, but it's no Aces High.

Yep.  But then I have been playing with my volume settings.  I probably also need to re-calibrate.

 

And I forgot to post these last night:

Guess which technique is still giving me trouble? :)

I usually shy away from songs with Japanese vocals like they are the plague, but I did have a go at that masterclass bass song and it was actually quite fun to play, if you focus on the bassline :P That being said though,is that masterclass bass song really a 9 out of 10 on the rating? I feel like ive played way more difficult songs out there.. but that just might be me idk

Bugger - just lost my reply.

 

Anyway, @@Syvaa, I'll just put it this way - I'm surprised I got 97% on my first go, on a song that's rated a 9.  So, no it probably isn't a 9.  :D  

 

But I'm not going to suggest the Advanced and MC are swapped!  :o

 

I'm going to try the Krakatit again today.  I'm sure the Krakatit is easier than the Sorairo Days - it's just that when I try to play slap bass on a sight reading, my whole brain freezes.  I have to have some idea of where the song is going before I can devote some of my attention away from the sight read and onto what my right hand is doing, if that makes any sense to anyone.

I've not tried any of this week's tracks yet (I gather Krakatit is slapped?), but that makes absolute sense to me! :)

Ok, I've been and tried them (adv & mc), not uploaded screens yet as I'm still playing - just wanted to quickly get my first impressions down.....

 

Krakatit is waaayyyy harder than last week's MC.  Compared to last week's Supergroove it's more like a MC track, it's making me think Supergroove was really a 6....because once you got the patterns down it repeated throughout; there's more variation with Krakatit. 

 

I scored higher with my first play of Sorairo Days too.  I don't know though, I think Krakatit might be more masterable (is that a word? :P ) with lots of plays - I'll probably live to regret saying that! :lol:  Sorairo I feel is more about having the speed, which isn't necessarily something you can improve a lot on over the course of one week.  If you've already got it it's going to be easy to do well.  I don't know, I'd be happy to attempt either, it's nice to get some challenging songs.  We tend to get a lot of songs rated below our class in bass so it's nice to feel pushed to improve. :)

 

Of course, if you do end up with Krakatit in MC @@missis sumner, you'll have to switch to emulated - that's the way winners do it ;) :P  :ph34r:

@@Bass - that are 2 hard songs which is very cool.

 

Rechecked and the order is right.

My diff ratings was 7.5 on Krakatit and 8 on Sor Days. 9 it is not.

 

Memo to myself: always trust your own feeling and get smashed when you are awfully wrong afterwards ;)

Right, I don't slap well AT all (I am a below the beginner ability with the technique), but, I am making progress with this particular ADV bass track. I started out at 47% and DD was alllll orange. I NEVER use DD but I thought for this particular track, since I don't really know this band, I don't mind if I don't do it justice so I'll use DD to just help me with the slap technique in general. Slowing it down and reducing the notes definitely helped at the start and eventually I started to get the rhythm down and even 100%'d a few of the sections. so here's my "non" score which I'm hoping to improve to an SA entry later in the week. RS just crashed and my popping finger is a bit burned so I'm gonna rest a bit before getting back to it :) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=891829303

 

Future me hopes to try a red hot chillies at some point :)

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.
