King Crimson always good, though on the easier side, which means...  Fripp's part that I can play :o

Weird tempo here and there + those chords!

Classic Nobuo Uematsu. When you listen, you just want to drop the guitar and play some Final Fantasy :lol:

Do not be tricked by high %, it is tough song on each arrangement.

Just a heads for anyone else stuck with mac the blink 182 song "bored to death" does not work with either the mac download or converting the pc download, as seen in the comments for the custom, I did however get it working by starting with the pc version convert > xbox > to mac > back to pc > then back to mac again and it worked

I havent played the bass arrangements yet, but why are they both graded to difficulty level 7? Doenst it defeat the purpose of having MC bass when the song there is just as difficult as the advanced one?

I haven't been skiving, honest.  I've had pain in my index finger knuckle since Thursday.  Actually, I played through it on Thursday, thinking it was just muscular, only to realise Friday morning it was in the joint. :(

 

I took it easy yesterday - I only played relatively easy stuff for less than an hour.  And I've stayed away today (been cleaning and ripping my car to bits instead).  There wouldn't have been any point in me playing the Rush song again anyway.  There were already too many scores at 100%, and you all know I don't do 100% battles (not until I sort my latency issues, anyway). :D

Where are the times when MC songs were Beginner level, or then rated 6, ahh, good ol' times :lol:

Songs are primarly sorted by lead difficulty, then they are properly sorted for both rhythm and bass (as you may notice that that they do not always fit the same class for each instrument). Sometimes it turns out that MC song is not really MC, or INT song not really BEG and so on. If we see that there was no good MC track in a while, we try to put one there, but since we were getting some tough songs lately I didn't felt that there is need for it now.

That's how things are done, and there is no better way to do it for us.

 

PS. King Crimson might be easier then Black Mages.

@@Mortalo Alright cool! I understand you cant get perfect songs that fits each category 100% all the time :)  Even though the songs lately have been quite solid, im here hoping for some crazy MC bass 10 rated song that will destroy me completely  :P

Jesus christ do i hate king crimson. I really don't want to offend anyone, and i know that this band has done major work for modern metal and progressive music, but this Song on Bass sounds like a 4 year old hacking away on the strings  :unsure: I can not for the live of me feel the rythm or what this bassist was thinking while playing  :huh:

None the less, one go to have a score in. I won't work on this one as i fear killing myself if i have to listen to it again  :P

Again, please don't be offended. I acknowledge the work they have done and am fine with people liking it. For me it's on the same level as Sigur Rós... just really hard to listen to.  :blink:

After some rounds with the other songs i feel like we do have a really hard week  :rolleyes:  The Rythm Part of August burns Red feels way harder than 8... Maybe this song highlights my weeknesses, but this song needs rather fasts downpicking (hard to improve really) and constant Arpeggios/small sweeps. Same for the Lead part of The Black Mages. Compared to two weeks ago (Sorairo Days) the Solo parts are much longer and harder to play, especially the extended tapping parts...

These songs will take some serious practice. Since my sister will marry this week, i don't think i'll find that much time, sadly  :(

Hi All,

 

I can't get Blink 182 to work, I have managed to get it onto the game following @@macjm 's instructions but freezes after tuning.

 

So i had a go at the Against Me song

These may be my last scores for the week as i have been sent to work in Japan for a few days, I might get another chance after I have packed but thought I'd get the scores in early as i forgot last week  :angry:

 

cheers

That's a weird coincidence @@missis sumner, I've got joint pain in my knuckles.  I think I might be coming down with something though.

First SA run (played once on LAS first)

Second SA try was slightly worse accuracy, but got rid of that red X.

Screw chords! :lol:

Not going to be working on this one, really not my cup of tea sorry.  Also chords. :P :D

 

 

I did play the beginner track, but for some reason could not get any of my notes to hit "perfect" so just quit out.

I was just wondering, what about choosing totally different songs for bass?  It might make it easier to fit the difficulty to each class instead of sometimes ending up with similar difficulties across the board.  There's also a heap of bass only tracks that are amazing, but will never get played in the comp because they don't have a lead path.  Just a thought. :)

Well, I don't like it.  But it's nothing to do with the way it's made. :)

 

And I know we have some similar tastes, so I'll forgive you.  :lol:

It was said before, but we do have a bunch of new participants so... not a chance. It basically means having another, separate Championship, and we don't have time to spare.

Everyone is free to try and organize something like that, but I'll be honest, it's not that easy to keep up running ;)

Understandable :)  I really do appreciate what all you organisers do already, was just an idea without actually considering how much extra organising that would be.

Beg:http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=902081524 I quite like the track, bass line's basic but it's kinda nice to rock out and feel like you're playing something that contributes to the sound and depth of the song. A strong 1 :)

 

Int:http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=902081429 Surprisingly likeable song for blinkydinks. good introduction for beg-int players to use chords a bit :) I am putting down the lack of 100% to tiredness otherwise I'd have nailed those sneaky ones higher up the neck. 2 or 2.5 if you've not got round to practicing chords yet.

Adv: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=902081610 I was very awful at playing this. Might spend some time on it but not sure I like the track enough.  

 

King Crimson I will be refraining from until I have a good uninterrupted day to practice chords. May have to wait until the kids have got married.

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.

Started with Blink182 on bass.  It took three tries, but I have my 100%.
