JIBUN WO! Hope you like arpeggios, advanced lead players.

 

RNG's been treating me a lot better lately. This is what, my third pick in a month? From famine to feast!

 

Rest of the week looks super solid too, got some classic material to play.

My favorite Zeppelin tune. It's hard to stay focused for so long time and so nothing going on :P

Quite fun.

It did not made me change my opinion on RHCP.

I found COLORS to be easier but I won't argue much.

Absolutely exhausted sightreads! Here we gooooo!

Both of these songs have the same thing going on - I know the songs extremely well, and therefore it is not too bad figuring out where to put my fingers on the fly, even though I've never played them on guitar before. Stadium Arcadium is my favourite RHCP album of all time, and this song is a zenith showing of their sound.

 

John Frusciante is a god and this song feels holy to play. :angel:

And speaking of gods! Love me some Slash. What a great week.

 

This song is surprisingly not as hard as I thought it'd be (most of the time). There are some pretty quick melodies that will take some learning, but a lot of these riffs I could just do off the bat.

 

I would say this might not even be a true 10? Sure, there's a couple more solos than the typical MC tune, but at no point in this song do I feel the GoG hopelessness, those moments where my brain can't even hold all the notes. That never really happens in this song. I don't get lost in Paradise City.

 

I'll post about my pick later! Let's just say I'm pretty familiar with it.

 

A night's rest, then back at it! :zzz:

It's another anime theme song pick by Gamut! Anime theme songs are a great place to find quality guitar wankery.

Colors is SUPER CATCHY. I love those trumpets.

 

I initially thought this was an MC pick. It looks kind of intimidating at first - until you realise that the guitarist is just doing the same chord progression over and over again with small variations. This song gets a lot easier once you slow it down in RR and process it.

 

As you can see, I've played it a couple of times before this week, but it's always been a pleasure play and never a song I've put serious effort into learning. Now I have an excuse to! *tryhard face*

Well... on the train to Vienna and after that to "zuerst den Finger in den Arsch und dann ab nach...." Dresden, Germany (thx @fripples ;) ).

 

Really a pitty not to be able to try hard this week, but that´s life. At least weather forecast is great (1° and solid chance for continuous rain)...

Paradise City made it to my favs list. I´ll lety you know when i hit the 90s there - if any of us is still alive then ;)

 

Have a nice rocking week.

chewed up the pad of my middle finger fret hand, hadn't thought about how much i've gotten used to using it.   trying to make up for it with the first and third has my hand so sore now.  almost like when i was fist learning.  be really glad when i can start using it again.

 

thanks to the one picking kashmir, one of my favorites

This is quite a challenging one, going to be fun! :)

What's going on?! Another song selection 2 weeks in a row?!  I totally wasn't expecting this to get selected so soon after putting it on the list, I just love playing it (or attempting to)!   :D  I'm going to have to add it to Da Capo for when I'm better haha! :lol:

http://i.imgur.com/RkOsKO3.png?1

Those hammer on sections really get me.  (I'm sure that's not an issue on a guitar though) ;) :P

 

I have a chest infection now so there's absolutely no way I'd make it all the way through Kashmir without a coughing fit! :lol:  Great track though. :)

Is there anyone here that understand Japanese?   I really want to know what "homoemu" is.    They cant be singing about a homosexual bird, can they?

I braved Score Attack and was so pleased to get >94%, and to be pain free.  I gave it another go, but felt fatigue setting in, so went off and played a couple of easy tunes.

 

As I was still pain free I owed it another go at the end of the evening:

I am going to take it easy this week, honest, I am... :D
