@@NoonyDeloony - I never even thought about using DD.  Thanks for the heads-up.  I'll give it a try!

 

 

You're welcome :) It's very possible to just keep all the notes rolling and just slow it down but in this instance of me being very new to slapping I needed to dumb it down and worked my way up to get the technique down. I can do the basic sections, slapped open E and the popped C, it's when the slaps change to the A string that I start fluffing up, my thumb just doesn't want to shift down and hit 1 string, I just end up thumping all four and making brow noise.   :huh:

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.

Yep, me too.  I think it's 'cos I sit with my bass on on left thigh.  My right hand just doesn't seem to be in the right position to slap anything other than the E string.  I'm down with the pops, mostly.  :lol:

And tonight's small improvements:

And yes, I did slap it again.  Or at least my own version of slapping, anyway.  There may have been too much popping going on.  It may be my eyesight.  I just can't distinguish between the symbols.

 

And @@Rodman, have you completely changed the bass on Ham Kummst?  It surely never used to be a slap bass fest?  I prefer the old version. :(

Ok, first goes.....except for INT, I don't appear to have the screen for that one for some reason.  :huh:

With Supergroove last week and now Krakatit I've had to keep switching popping finger so I have 3 tender digits!  :lol:  I predict epic callouses by the end of the week! :P

 

I gave ADV and MC second goes before spending the rest of the day with family and I did worse lol! :D

First I played my own part, find this supereasy but that doesn't mean anything.

and the bass is mc if you slap it, and of course I did. 

with slap 8-9, with fingers no way and with plec 7, emulated guit 6

The bass tone is much to loud, isn't it?

Ummmmmm.... o didn't change a single note in ham kummst ... not in the bass, nor elsewhere....

 

Just fixed 100%bug and added DD

Checking on that this evening... whatever might have happened...

 

Thx for the hint!

Well it seems that the ladies are either 'slapping' or 'fingering', this week so I thought I'd give it a go........

 

 In conclusion I cant do either so I'm sticking with the pick and sticking to beginner and Intermediate. :P

 

My slapping sounds like shit and fingering makes me ache too much (couldn't even finish a song)

:thumbsup: Great distinction made there!  :)

 

I don't recall the tone being too loud....I'll pay attention when I play it again later :D

Some Progress was made today. I'm rather happy with the outcome  :)

95 is my number today. Had 4 consecutive runs with 95.95%  :blink:  The Second Solo screws me up everytime... Might need some RR here.

Had a mixed evening.....did abysmally with Sorairo Days today, was way worse on a few attempts so I must have had my lucky pants on yesterday :lol:

 

Improved on Krakatit though...after several restarts from red X runs, finally...NO RED X!!!! :D

I like it when I make an improvement during the week, even if it is only a very small improvement:

It makes me feel as if playing that particular song is actually making me better.  (I also managed 94% on Master Blaster. :D)

Let's play Frip's tune!

Really percussive song. Not so much about melodic things - it's more about technique and dynamics than hitting the notes. Rocksmith doesn't do a good job at rating your performance on this one.  :lol:

 

Played Sorairo Days a few more times, but only went up a little over a percent over it, so I didn't hit PrtScr yet. I'll be back after I RR that killer solo!

:o  :o  :o  Lucky pants strike again! :D :lol:  (or maybe it was Riff Repeater....nahh, it was lucky pants! :D )

Honestly played slap style, I have it recorded too (sounds like crap though :lol: ) - will post my best vid at the end of the week.  Ubi's servers are down too so my score didn't even get on the in-game leaderboard :(

 

 

Any advice from more experienced bassists on how to keep your forearm relaxed when slapping?  I really do try to stay relaxed (I don't think I'm tensing up), but after a few runs my forearm feels worn out so I'm obviously not hanging loose.  Is it just a stamina thing?  Should I be going and hammering Lessons In Love for endurance training? :lol:

Fun metal tune.

I didn't practiced slap last week and this one is way harder then Supergroove.

It's also tough.
