Batman Theme - fun tune with which we can honour late Adam West. While for most of fun the only Batman is Micheal Keaton, still we have old enough participants to remember Adam West as Batman of 60s :D

 

Dream Theater as intermediate? Mortalo are you mad? Or do you hate intermediate participants? No, no, really :ph34r: Big surprise, quite simple DT track.

 

Moody Blues turned out harder then I expected, solo is on simplier side but riffs are more complicated.

 

And last but not least Skyreach is very fun. I really like it, it's full of goodies on lead.

 

 

I didn't knew whether to go with Blues on bass MC or Skyreach. Blues has more intuitive pattern, while Skyreach makes you wonder around fretboard more and has those slides, so tell me what you think.

I didn't even look at lead. Petrucci is pretty tame here too. I never thought I would see Dream Theater as intermediate.

I know that I haven't been around much in the last few months, but I can't pass up a tribute.

 

<<KAPOW>><<BLAM>> 

 

As for the rest of the bass selections, I always pass on Dream Theatre and Anime themes.  So I started working on the Moody Blues bass track.

Creator benchmark!

 

Some sections are very demanding. Chorus is straight up awesome

The rhythm part regrettably isn't up to par with the rest of the parts ;; Some wrong notes and kinda blandhttp://i.imgur.com/xo3iWLJ.jpg

 

Fun bass line with good variety and is quite simple too!

Hey it's Akame! The manga has recently ended and I was a big fan when I was in high school where it was one of the first anime series I was ever introduced to. zpatv01's original cdlc was one of my favourites to play so I recommend trying that out if you feel like it!

Batman  :- http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950108756  :(

 

Moody Blues:- http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950108685 This is fun. My game crashed but I had just RR'd from 50% speed to 100%... 90% was good, 100% was a bit crap... will try play it again before sleep. 8 to 9 ish I reckon. If I nail it before the week's out it'll be rated down to 7.5  :lol:

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.

A slight improvement on Fripples blues... need a rest from Moody blues, that's a song that is essential to relax the old hand so no score update yet there.... http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950135126

Couple sightreads to get going this week:

That was awfully easy for a Dream Theatre song, but still a pretty big challenge for our Int players. Good luck, young Petruccis!

Back in real life :)

 

A few festival impressions if anyone is interested.

 

First of all four full days is hard if you (are old and) you as always go full monty on watching bands straight from 2pm till 1.30am each day...

So what who was great and who sucked...

Prophets of Rage - absolute killer!!! all the cool ratm and Cypress Hill songs spiced with some Public Enemy oldschool performed by the original members including master Morello, everyone fully motivated, though it did rain - straight #1, and they did Like a Stone for Cornell with Serj Tankian on vocals.

Suicide Silence - who? californian deathcore with a killer vocalist, had an early afternoon slot but managed to fill the whole wavebreaker and make them do circlepitts and walls of death all show long, have the 7yo supposedly bandmembers son drum along to deathcore and (long not seen) absolutely smash the gear at the end of the show. #2

System of a Down - great band, great performance with unique new versions of every song, a mustsee.

Also the best Slayer live performance i have seen, In Flames even better than 1998 when i have seen them last time, Gojira - very cool, Fat Boy Slim - unexpectedly cool using all the great stuff from my youth as samples, and Green Day doing the whole 2.5h show including doing a short guitar player audition and making a random fan from the crowd having his best day ever by letting him perform a song on guitar with them and after he did really rockstarworthy ending with - you gotta keep the guitar :)

And Linkin Park - well they had it all served on a silver plate, they were the first big act on the first day, everyone was at least a bit looking forward to the show, 75% of the songs well known hits and great weather, and they absolutely fxxed it up - zero motivation, it almost felt like it would be a burden for them to have to do those songs, missing coordination between the bandmembers and very bad new songs, one performed as encore, worst show i have been to in my life, i would not be too surprised if they took a long break or split up after that tour. Luckywise the only dissapointment.

The customs seems to be broken - the repair options detect tone problems and marks it as broken. Maybe not a custom to keep after the week to avoid searching why the game hangs or crashes.
