First time playing these songs, all on LAS mode.

 

1. Insomnium - Winter's Gate I (3) - definitely not a beginner song. It's boring and tiring, goes too fast for no reason. I generally like Death Metal but this just went through my ears and didn't remember any of the melody or bass line. Played mostly 8ths and Rocksmith didn't care. Will skip it this week.

2. Thrice - Black Honey  (5)

This one should have been the beginner level. It's ok... I only like one of their songs and it's not the one :) Check out Beltsville Crucible. Any masterclass guitarists who can play the intro? :)

3. Steven Wilson - Hand Cannot Erase (6)

Also pretty easy except the solo part. Doable at my level, so will focus on this. I wish it the bass line would start sooner than 3 minute mark though.

4.  Metallica - Orion  (9). Tried this for giggles. Most of the song is easy and even the bass solo... well, I'll try :) there is something wrong with the tones though, the beginning sounds like shit.

So, Make Dame Sure had F#3, open A+B chrod and riffs 10-11 which are simple at glance but not due to speed.

Brand New Kind of Blue had barre chords, reverse double stops were you had not to mute lower string and intro riff which can be a bit speedy.

King of Fools had what? Hammer-on chrods and pinch harmonics. Pinch harmonics Carl, doubt many beginners can actually pull them off, RockSmith ability to tell it aside.

 

So tell me again how ATWA here is 3? I'd 93% it in 15 minutes...

Having fingers won't go were I want them issues......

 

 

I'll have a go at the other song in my class at a later date as my guitars hate the D tuning, plus i think i have enough to work on in this song.

Any way to mute the vocals? I can't take the Death Growl.

They grow on you... I couldn't listen to Black and Death because of the vocals either but then kind of got used to it :)

 

 

Well I tried to do some high level audio signal processing for you :

Unfortunately, accelerated death growl only gives black screams, sorry...

(and the related RS championship level is now GOG).

It is an aquired taste. I could not stand them once too. In fact, they made me uneasy, because of the raw emotion they can convey.

Nowadays I prefer them over clean singing. But I also changed from a caring social worker type to a man ready to kill to protect his family. ;)

 

In this vein, Insomnium, first tries

As the play count betrays, I have actually played this before. Same time last year, if I remember right.

Thanks for song picking @@Kosa, very nice !

 

The starting section is too long, following sections are epic, and "coitus interruptus" is my best definition of the final section...

the winters gate link isnt going to a a song page for me. do i just look it up on ignition? got it from ignition, going to have to skip this week, d standard tuning on 40-100 strings dont work very well.

Can some explain how I won with the 3rd highest score last week? im so confused right now.

 

You'll notice little stars next to other folks' names, it says they do not play in their current class, so yes you were the first

So I'm not going to lie: This week was SUPER rigged. :lol: Normally we roll randomly to see who gets a pick each week, but nobody else could and I had to cover... so I put one together quickly out of customs I knew were good offhand so I didn't have to test. Hope people enjoy these Gamut picks.

 

I noticed we had somehow never played any Steven Wilson in the CS, somehow, and so I have riggedly fixed this with the title track of a really breathtaking album.

Sometimes higher class players want to play songs that aren't their class, even it's they aren't competing there. :D Like this!

Really fun riffs in this one. Nothing too crazy for our Adv players, yet keeps you on your toes.

edit: and just to let everyone know. The main DL link for Orion has been taken down by mega, use the backup links that go to Dropbox.

As a result of the whole rushing them out thing, the difficulty scores might be little less accurate than usual this week.

 

Whether Atwa is a 2 or a 3 depends largely on whether you're talking about difficulty scoring 100% accuracy, or difficulty 100% emulating the sound in the song. That main riff has very specific dynamics that a beginner is going to have a hard time pulling off, but Rocksmith doesn't care at all what dynamics you play it with. (There is also a minor charting error, as both strings should be ringing at the same time... but again, this is not a thing Rocksmith is going to give you misses for.)

 

Insomnium, on the other hand...

I am sorry I did this to you, Int Lead players!! :persevere: Winter's Gate I is most definitely not a 5. I'd even call it a high 6 with that verse riff.

 

Replacement Int lead coming up in a sec.
