Last week of the year happens to be an A week :D

 

I always wanted to have at least one true disco song for this week of the year. This time its ABBA and I hope that @@missis sumner will appreciate that :)

Rhythm Intermediate: Stevie Wonder - Superstition (4) (Eb Standard)

 

NOT FAIR! - letting rhythm class play a song with one of the best bass line ever, while leaving the bass players with some mediocre selections.

 

If I have to downtune to play anything decent, I'm playing this one.  Superstition on bass - 99.5%

 

Take THAT FreeBird police!

Hate to be "that guy" but this is charted wrong. The original bass line is not using open strings as much as this is. I verified by watching ABBA's euro-vision '74 performance and looking into how others have covered it. It also appears to be in Drop D according to this guy.

Though he played it in E standard and just played the octave. The way it's currently charted is really hard on your hands and playing it this way is begging to get an RSI. Any way we can use a different song or have someone make a more accurate chart?

Bass songs difficulty is very underrated this week

1. This one is boring, agree, 2.

2. Amorphis is a bit harder, may be 3?

3. ABBA is definitely 5

4. GnR started deceptively easy but the last minute is too fast, I almost got cramps :) Surprised I didn't fail any sections, it sounded like a mess

Guitar time, got blisters on my right hand fingers!

 

This one is too easy for 3

But Lead is quite hard for me...

Pretty much follows bass line but I find bass much easier to play

Stevie Wonder rhythm is really easy... so is Lead, but I'm not sure how I got only "decent performance"

That guy looks like he should be shopping for soup, not playing a instrument as sexy as a bass!

Hey an idea for future content. Can we perhaps have like a ... For example a Queen take over? Like one week every class song could be from all one band? 

 

This is totally possible. What does everyone think? Obviously Queen is just an example. We could do a vote for which band/artist has the take over.

A bit of bass

http://u.meelo.org/.rocksmith/week271/bass/b01.png

I think this was a bit harder than 2.

And this a bit harder than 3.

This just sounded and looked like stupid spam. Will need to seriously slow it down to find the rhythm in there.

Is the way someone looks suppose to matter? He is an older gentleman who probably has more experience than both of us combined. When you don't have a legitimate argument so you criticize someone's appearance you come off as an immature high school student. Not trying to start shit Toni, but if you have nothing of substance to say it would be better for you not to say anything. I did have some respect for you, with the scores you get it appears you have immense talent and skill, but all that just went out the window with this asinine comment. If this is the sort of response I'm going to get when I try to give constructive criticism of an inaccurate chart, then why should I give any feedback at all?

 

Sorry for the off topic rant. Can anyone, that's not Toni, answer the question I posed? "Any way we can use a different song or have someone make a more accurate chart?" If the answer is no then that is completely acceptable, I will simply let my 96% stand, since I don't want to learn a song incorrectly, and move onto playing charts that are accurate (or at least more accurate since some of the B.B. King charts use open stings where it should be a 5th fret) and more in my wheelhouse, like Journey and B.B. King.
