Don't know what the problem is, I can't play the bend (15th fret on second string and 12th on the first). I think I'm playing them good but usually they are counted as "miss". I don't actually know if these notes/techniques have a particular name, since they are quite common; could you tell me how do you call them? 

And I also find the song quite difficult compared to the stuff that we play in ADV lead.




Plus, a run at the tribute song.

While my bass gently weeps...




RIP LaceyB.  It's thanks to people like you that I'm somehow in a band now.  You will be missed.

I am healing slowly, but I can play a bit if I shift the instrument way over to the side so I am not stressing the shoulder. I am excited! I havwe no stamina though. A couple songs and I am done.

After a few passes in RR, I scored 99.2% on bass on Du Nich.  Unfortunately, the screen shot didn't upload to Steam properly, so no link.  Rather than just play the track again and take another screen shot, I choose to blame the FreeBird Police and vow revenge.  The FreeBirds have been complacent for too long.


So thus follows, my diabolical plan:  The weapons at my disposal are my "Secret Agent Man" bass-VI, tuned EADGCF, one octave below guitar tuning, and the DLC for Gangsters, which I have played on bass about 168 times. I played it today for yet another 100%.  Hint to beginners - this track is trickier than it looks because most of the bass is played behind the beat.


Now I bet that you are all asking yourselves, "OMG, will he play it in Master Mode?". NOOOO! far too predictable!


This week, I will play the guitar part above the 12th fret on the Secret Agent Man.  The plan is still in need of a few last details - Will I capo the 12th fret?  Will I tune to EADGBE??  Why???  Stay tuned for updates.


Take THAT FreeBird Police!

I'm guilty of spending too much of my time on Beat Saber lately and my guitar playing suffers. When I tried to play 'Only for the weak' yesterday, my fingertips hurt after a while. That has not happened to me for quite some time.So (hopefully) back to more guitar playing, but I need to start slow :)

Well, better late then never I guess


What I've learned after being in the championship for almost half a year is that if a masterclass song seems easy. It means the solo is going to be incredible hard.




Surprisingly I already had this song in my playlist. Idk why but for some reason the way the lyrics where charted just bothers me. I don't get why they put "2" and "U" instead of putting "to" and "you". Everything else is in English, why did you have to put texting acronyms  :tired_face:
