well, yes - i chose the above songs cause i wanted first... really great songs to play and second for any lead class a proper song to level up ;)

And my memory did not fool me - if you master that beg, int and adv players (though here a real hard 7 ;) ) you are deffo ready for the next challenge.

 

Have fun, all songs are ordered correctly.

love the Arctic Monkeys, first scores,

 

roe0drk012lkwce6g.jpgI have played this song a lot but i think this is the best score I have got on the first couple of plays in a long while  :D

I found this a bit harder due to my soft fingers.

 

i have never heard the Blink tune before but definitely liking this track.

and lastly i couldn't resist having a try at the Late Great Tom Petty, to try and beat my 39%

This Championship has definitely improved my playing  ;)

 

Bass strings are here tomorrow so i'm hoping for some big scores.

What is the strategy for the chords at the end (I don't play much Bass)?  Do you use a finger for each note in the chord or try to try to strum with one finger?

I don't recall ever hearing Fluorescent Adolescent before.  I like it -  It's just my kind of silly.

 

on bass = 100%

 

Maybe I'll work on this song in master mode this week.

Don't over think it, play it with a pick, and i believe it's played with one even if it says "fingered" next to bass.

This song is not as difficult as I make it look.  It helps if you start out playing with a pick, rather than stopping when you hit the chords.

And I've played this before, so found it quite easy:

Another easy one, but it probably is the advanced bass track.  There are a few more techniques involved here than the Arctic Monkeys:

And this, I've never heard it before... seriously.  It should be a 100% by the end of the week though, but then it is one of those awkward timing ones, so you never know:

An easy week, all round. :)

The way I do it, and everybody plays a little different, is if the strings are close next to each other I'll strum them with one finger. If they're far apart (E and G string as an example) i'll pluck them with my thumb and pointer or middle finger. I only play finger style with all songs though and like I said everybody is different.
