Welcome @@iminalcatraz, enjoy! :)

 

 

Today's improvement.  It's nice to be posting whole number increases rather than fractions for a change :lol:

But then again....here, have a fraction! :lol:  I'm only going to get fractions out of this one.  I almost didn't bother posting it, it felt like a much worse playthrough.  Was a way worse streak anyway.

Well, if it makes you feel better, I haven't got anywhere near my 95% since, but I have got the hammer-ons down in Riff Repeater (ah, so that's what it's supposed to sound like...), too bad I suffer from fatigue about three bars in... At least I'm still pain free.  And I did improve my streak.

 

I daren't even try Colours again. lol

one less red X than the first time round... http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=913822739

 

I am feeling the fatigue of this too but on top I have badly chapped hands atm from the cold weather we're having "oop norf" and they're literally bleeding despite being moisturised. I haven't warmed up properly to play this song at all so I'm gonna come back to it later hopefully with a slight improvement.  :blink:

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, those hammer on sections are definitely fatiguing @@missis sumner.  I feel like it's a bit of a pleasure/pain thing...it feels so good to play once you get past those bits and can rock out haha!  I know how it's supposed to sound, it's just hitting those hammer ons with enough force for them to register over and over again isn't it?  At least you're ache free still (*touch wood*).

 

Blimey @@NoonyDeloony!  And you're still playing? :blink:  Hardcore! \m/ 

Edit:  That's odd with the right click thing.  Does it do it if you left click then use ctrl+v to paste?

Last week and this have been crazy busy.  So I'll just drop in a couple of sight reads in case I don't get the chance to work on the tracks.

That was my poor attempt at a joke, after realising what your user name was...  :ph34r:

Again, no improvement, but I got close, and improved my streak:

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B49Qq-EFnmrKMXAtZ1lxakQ4czA/view?usp=sharing

 

I was playing on my short scale bass for a few reasons:

 

1. the strings are floppier, for less fatigue during the hammer-ons (no performance increase on that first note on the G string that I keep missing though)

2. the frets are closer together for less stretch on the hammer-ons (I can actually use my third finger now, and not have to rely on my pinky (yes, I have really short fingers))

3. and I've fitted flats on it, which is an infinite relief for my taped up right hand index finger.

 

Maybe I should try it on guitar with a pick instead? :D

Couple tiny servings of improvements on the hard stuff:

Even though this song is great and a solid challenge, I'm finding myself less inclined to play this file because it's pretty inaccurate and I hate the tone. :sob:

Did that 91 on my second attempt, but I forgot to screenshot. Whoops.

 

I keep tying myself on Colors, but I think I can make it to at least 96 if I really go hard at it tomorrow. Having so much fun with it that I might even try to resurrect my laptop and record my first video in forever?!

Only time for a half assed attempt at Led Zepp this week. Tuned up my normally D-tuned guitar and the tension of the 13 gauge strings hurts my delicate fingers. 

 

You need to take care not to palm mute the open E (D) strings.

Back, 1 of my two radius fractures is mostly healed, and the other is on its way.  Turns out it's good physio to play guitar.

BEG Lead 99.33% only 162 Streak though. 1,210,308  Interesting comp.  Thanks.

Ugh, dumb hammer on's would never register  :angry:  (and if you play it too many times after each other your wrist will die..)

I'm no fancy guitar dude but now I had the excuse to tune my guitar to that weird tuning.

Also, my girlfriend actually recognized what song I was playing, compared to the random noise I usually make when I play guitar, i count that as an achievement on its own  :P

I'm glad to see I'm not that far off the pace.  :)

 

 

I had to play it an extra time just to beat your score... for now  :P <3

I improved my streak to 263, but failed to beat my score.  Ah, well, at least I'm trying.

 

(Some would say I'm very trying... ;) )

 

I've figured out why I'm failing - it's my fret hand finger speed.  After the first hammer on I just can't lift my finger fast enough off the D string to register the next note, so I'm always missing the G string 9th fret that follows. :( My bass fingers are set to span and sit flat on most strings, automatically, you see.  I reckon a guitarist wouldn't have this problem, because he wouldn't be bridging multiple strings with a hammer-on in the first place - he'd be playing with his actual finger tip, and missing the other strings.
