Rocksmith 2014 Championship Week 251

Recommended Posts

Being a FreeBird,  The recycling of week 250 isn't a big deal.  If I like a week's song selection, I make submissions.  If you notice my absence, the selected songs are probably not to my personal taste.

 

I will use this week as an opportunity try out a more guitar like finger picking style.  I normally use the floating thumb technique, where the thumb rests on the next lower pitch unplucked string and pluck with my index and middle fingers.  I'm going to try plucking with thumb and two fingers to see how that works for me.  I'll have to dust off the exercises and post any resulting train wreck.

More work on Louie Louie, finally moved the needle on both lead an rhythm.  Small improvement, but I'll take it.

And a small improvment on Help.  I have to be honest I havern't really been working the lead path of it tho.

seems like you have to get the chords pretty spot on to get a good score on this classic

& this one shouldn't be as hard was it is, looks easy from the start but i just can't get it right somehow.

Help!  It is a Hazy Shade of Winter here, and Louie Louie "gotta go now!"  I'm getting Scarified that the Winds of Change won't ever come and bring us new songs!  

 

Yeah, no progress.  Just banging my head against these songs while others make them look easy.  I actually shouted at the game when I missed the last note of Winds of Change and got the final red X to fail me out.  I did try a master mode run on Louie Louie rhythm.  I seem to have memorized the notes, even if I can't play them.

Hardest workday of the season (today) is over. I was mentally prepared for more than what we had to do. Great relief, bit of energy left, and despite minor injuries at my hands I wanted to play something. Couple of tries at Pantera, a little improvement.

Welcome @fmsjames! I have added your results on the Leaderboards and I think the Masterclass tier suits you, so black score (it means you will earn points for that) on the hardest difficulty, and grey score (no points awarded for those) on the others. If anything is not clear, just ask.

No score for me yet on Help... quite a lot for me to get the hang of the chord changes and also learn to do barre chords. I'm up to about 80% speed and it sounds like shit!  :lol: .

 

I'm also having the opposite problem with note detection compared to palm mutes.. the game now seems way too generous with registered the chord even though it sounds horrible.

At least it's better than last week's score! \o/

Still missing the first strum from most of the chord changes.
