what do we have.....


4 songs that are a blast to play... cannot decide which one i like best, maybe the Gojira tapping challenge :)


Especially bass players also get great lines.


There is no MC rhy, but the other ones will be cool for the masters too.


Enjoy and Rock as hard as you can!!!!!!!!

First time playing... only heard HeartBreaker before.

I think Gojira and Pat Benatar should switch places for bass. Gojira is much faster (will probably need a pick which I can't use...) and has bends and slides all over. Heartbreaker's only semi-difficult part is the bass solo in the middle but pretty sure it's not advanced :) easy to play with fingers too. The last song... looks fun and challenging but not in impossible kind of way for my skill. But it's so weird!

First tries of the week,


the lovely Pat Benatar brings back memories of when i first saw her at the Hammersmith Apollo back in 1983, that makes me feel bloody old.,



and bass of course..




next the time warp with brings me back to week 150,




92% to beat then....




definitely getting better i thought until i tried the Gojira racket.......




I'm not sure what was going on really so i just hit a few random notes, i doubt i'll be spending much time on this one

The Secret Agent Man has recovered from the neck extension surgery of a few weeks past.  Now it is up to me to adjust to the Bass VI configuration (30" scale, 6 string spacing, E-e tuning one octave below standard).  My playing has felt like a two week long train wreck, but I'm just getting the hang of it.


Heartbreaker on bass > 99%


As for The Scream. gNat has it at school for music class.

If I try too much, my wrist hurts. Enough time warps for today.




So I tried something else, and my wrist hurts anyway.




I don't know if it's wrong hand positioning or just need some time to get used to all these chords.

Back in business this week, one of my favorite songs to play. However, I'm not sure what the problem is but my either my strings or the guitar hates finger tapping (most likely it's me though). Gonna have to see if I can figure something out.



@@Rodman Keep forgetting to ask but can you transfer the 3 points on the weekly leader boards from xXprototype64Xx to me? Because that's still me, I just changed my name after the first week and you can remove that name afterwards.
