Started on Bass





Then some lead.  Had to RR a bit to get the hang of what was going on.



Love this song...I wonder if I worked on the solo if I couldn't get this one in the upper 90s.

Not going to level up. I only won because Angelina and Telboy went AWOL and Rodman had no time to play :P


Congrats man!

Good playing - you are deffo an adv player now.

I really understand when you wanna wait till you get the chance to have it the old fashioned 99+ way.


Rock on!!!

Hmm, beginner lead is not exactly beginner, but it isn't quite intermediate either. Spent an hour in riff repeater to get through the tremolo solo properly and get the main riff down. I have tried that song months ago and ended up giving up, because it was too hard :P


Anyways. Missed two D#5s when going from the main riff to D#5 chord. Good enough for now. I like royal republic, so I'll come back to this and get the 100 %.

@@Gamut ain't rhythm on Seventh Wonder really a 6-string bass arrangement? Then we shouldn't really put it there, right?

First of the week.


Really dislike intros without guitar.   Luckily you can skip them in learn a song, and the song is really fun to play.




Had a hard time getting in groove with this one, the duck sounds the guitar makes feel totally unnatural to me.   But I got a little bit used to it and the duck solo in the end was fun to play.




So many bends in the end.  I really need to learn how to play them.




Just so fast

Haven't played for three days... should have warmed up before trying SA right away :)





Really like this song... the bass solo in the middle is quite a challenge! First time hearing and playing it so I was suprised to finish with just one X




Tried Masterclass, it was ok until the mid song...

But it's kinda pointless, too complex for the sake of complexity

Are you sure this is just 5.5? O_O Spent two hours in riff repeater before being able to do it (poorly) in score attack.

Kind of agree with @@ZeroPingNZ, adv is generally easier than intermediate lead. While it has a ton of fast unison bends, they tend to stay at the same position, which makes it a lot easier (if only I learnt how to do EB-string unison bends accurately without muting the E-string).
