@@Rodman I thought I was ADV already. I scored above 97% in three consecutive weeks (230-232) in INT Lead. All songs were difficulty 5.


I'm taking that win. Time to up the game a little.

Roger that.

upleveling thoughts:


There are a lot of new players (cool), so after a while a few lines of info how we handle it:


Back in the old days upleveling and downleveling was very strikt and sometimes led to bad blood, especially when bass players were forced to level up to MC ( ;) , g.o. times, sigh...). Adaptions were made and over the years the now-active very good simple ruleset was developed:


- You enter the CS - you choose your classes freely

- You can choose a class of any difficulty for lead, rhy, bass seperately or also compete in only some/one.


1) Autoupleveling at 99+ on a highest rated song of the class (3/5/7 - beg/int/adv) lead and rhy or 99.5+ for bass (cause it´s sooo much easier, almost not worth the effort :P :P :P ) unless the player votes against it and the players of his old class let him stay!


- Important addendum seldomly used: One week is short, yes. There are great upleveling songs in the week and one just doesn´t find the time cause silly stuff like rl - yes. If you are (and that is the good way ;) ) an oldschool upleveler you can take as much time as you want to practice on any fitting song played formerly in the cs, and when you got your desired score post it, just please with the commentary that this is your levelup!


2) But you can uplevel anytime, just shout and you are up


3) Also - you can downlevel anytime (there are no % or whatsoever for that), just scream and if we orgas think you are not too strong, you go down.


And that is already it.


Have fun, rock until you level up! (then just rock)




@@Anwyn - i hope that does also answer that 97+ question!

Rodman, alright :)

I think me being unable to do even the beginner songs is due to Rocksmith bugs or not registering the notes... so I'm ok with staying in intermediate for now. And just to prove it, I suddenly remembered I used to play rhythm in uni days (not for long) and was doing alright.

Just tried this and impressive for sight-reading at my level. I played it on bass already though and the rhythm follows it.




Don't like this song at all! It's just too noise with the guitar so much louder than the rest of the song, I couldn't hear any melody or singing



Had to try Metallica...



Rhythm is much easier though




And these foreign songs... I guess Polish and French?

I'm not an English speaker. Sorry for possible mistakes.


Don't watch my Twitch streams if you want to save your ears.

Here's my first trys.


Lead, needs work.



gYC7TO3.jpgjn7HNzw.jpgAgain, kind of oddly I've done better on advanced bass.




Needed bar chord practice but now my hand hurts.

fZwr6rr.jpgThis one is good open chord practice but he sounds so relaxed I almost fall asleep and miss the fast chord changes.

I'll start my job in June, probably I will play less than usual...


I know I can improve here. 



Here I realize I'm strumming when not needed and not-strumming when it's time to strum. Though I think it's kinda cheating just overstrumming, no one would notice (and my accuracy would go up). I'm trying to play along the song, but I admit I still can't follow the rhythm in these first runs.
